Proptech Norway is a non-profit network of companies, organizations and individuals pooling their collective insights to further the sustainable development of buildings, cities and companies. We facilitate meetings between global gamechangers, the investment community, startups and incumbents
In order to carry out the aforementioned role and the described services this entails, it is necessary for PROPTECH NORWAY to collect or otherwise process personal data. Essentially, these will be treatments done for the following purposes:
For the purposes described above, PROPTECH NORWAY will from time to time share personal information with partners.
However, PROPTECH NORWAY is responsible for processing all the above-mentioned processing of personal data.
What are our legal grounds for processing your personal data?
The legal basis for processing your personal information will vary depending on the situation. Our treatment bases used will mainly be:
More about courses, social activities etc. arranged by PROPTECH NORWAY
PROPTECH NORWAY publishes and implements measures that should be of interest to our partners and other interested parties. PROPTECH NORWAY will regularly invite lectures, courses, social activities, etc. arranged by or under the direction of PROPTECH NORWAY. Whoever receives invitations will, of course, vary, but may include cluster members and their contacts, customers, people who have registered for reception as well as participants at previous or similar events.
In connection with participation in such an event, a participant list will normally be prepared, usually with contact information such as name and, if applicable, employer and e-mail address. Such participant lists will not be disclosed to outside parties other than organizers of the event and their contractors. Occasionally, participant lists may be circulated among participants, but normally without email addresses.
Participant lists may be stored by PROPTECH NORWAY. Within the framework of the Personal Data Act and the Marketing Act section 15, participant lists may be used by PROPTECH NORWAY for marketing similar benefits as the benefits on which personal data was provided to PROPTECH NORWAY.
Registered persons can request removal from such lists at any time. There are also usually unsubscribe options in invitation mail sent from PROPTECH NORWAY.
If we take pictures of you at an event, we should always ask for your consent in the continued use of portrait images for website and / or social media. Portrait images are images where one or a few individual (s) is the main subject. However, when using situational images in connection with various events, we may reproduce images publicly, for example, on the website and / or in social media, without the consent of those depicted provided the image reproduces assemblies or the event is of general interest. Situational images are images where the activity or event in the image is the real subject. Exactly who is in the picture is then less important than the main content.
Details on sending newsletters from PROPTECH NORWAY
In order for us to send you news and information about PROPTECH NORWAY, we need your contact information. Newsletters are mainly sent electronically to the given e-mail address, but other channels can sometimes be used.
We will obtain consent to send newsletters by e-mail to personal e-mail addresses. The email address is stored in a separate database operated by our subcontractor (data processor) and is not shared with others. It is voluntary to give such consent and such consent may be withdrawn at any time, for example, by clicking on the “end newsletter” at the bottom of each email you receive. The email address will be deleted from the newsletter database when you unsubscribe.
More on storage time
PROPTECH NORWAY retains personal data for as long as necessary for the purposes described above or to comply with specific legal requirements. This means that the storage time for different types of information and purposes will necessarily vary.
For example, section 13 of the Accounting Act requires that certain information must be stored for five years, while other documents must be stored for three and a half years after the end of the financial year. These documents may contain personal information which is then also stored accordingly.
More of your personal information, such as contact information/email address, we need to store as long as we provide a service to you or as long as you subscribe to a newsletter or similar. If, on the other hand, you terminate the service or unsubscribe from a newsletter, your personal information will be deleted without undue delay.
Other types of personal information (eg application / CV for a job vacancy in PROPTECH NORWAY) would like to have a shorter storage need.
