We will only process your Personal data if we have a legal basis for processing, which may be one of the following:

  • Legitimate interests. Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.

If we seek to use Personal data in a materially different way than we had previously, we will provide prior notice to you for example by e-mail.

Sharing your Personal data

We do not share Personal data with third parties except in the limited circumstances outlined below:

  • Affiliates. Your Personal data may occasionally be processed by other companies in the Idemitsu group. Idemitsu group companies follow the same rules when involved in processing your Personal data. These rules are called “binding corporate rules” and apply if your Personal data is transferred to any group company. You can find our binding corporate rules at [LINK].
  • Service providers. We may share Personal data with our trusted service providers who perform services on our behalf (e.g. web hosting, technical support, CRM system providers and analytics services), but strictly for the purpose of carrying out work on our behalf as described in this Privacy Policy. We are responsible for the data privacy of the service providers we may share Personal data with. We will always make sure to enter into sufficient, written agreements before sharing Personal data to service providers, restricting the use of Personal data and imposing the same level of privacy, confidentiality and information security that apply to IIN.
  • Public institution(s). Any competent law enforcement body, regulatory body, government agency, court or other third party where we believe disclosure is necessary (a) as a matter of applicable law or regulation, (b) to exercise, establish, or defend our legal rights, or (c) to protect your vital interests or those of any other person.

Regardless of the above, IIN will never share, trade or sell your Personal data to a third party for marketing purposes.

We may also share anonymized, aggregated information with selected third parties for statistical purposes.

Service Providers

Idemitsu group companies follow the same rules when involved in processing your personal data. These rules are called “binding corporate rules” and apply if your personal data is transferred to any group company.

Additionally, some processing of your personal data may involve services outside of Norway. In this case, your personal data will be protected by appropriate transfer safeguards which guarantee an adequate level of data protection wherever your data is physically sent.

International transfers

Some processing of your Personal data may involve services outside of Norway and the EU/EEA. Whenever we transfer your information, we take steps, including preventive measures, designed to protect your Personal data.

For all international transfers, your Personal data will be protected by appropriate transfer safeguards which guarantee an adequate level of data protection wherever your data is physically sent. All international transfers within the Idemitsu group will be protected on the basis of our binding corporate rules, cf. above. All other international transfers will also be protected by appropriate transfer safeguards, such as the EU Commission approved standard contractual clauses (“SCCs”).

Data security

We have put in place appropriate technical and organisational controls to prevent your Personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your Personal data to those within IIN and its affiliates who have a business need to know and are subject to confidentiality obligations, or data processors who are obliged to comply with similar obligations.

Data retention

We will only retain your Personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for. We retain Personal data where we have an ongoing legitimate business need or legal obligation to do so. Our retention periods will vary depending on the type of data involved, but, generally, we refer to these criteria in order to determine retention period:

  • Whether we have a legal or contractual need to retain the data. This may e.g. be if we are obliged to retain customer information to comply with accounting legislation;
  • Whether the data is necessary to provide our services. For instance, if you are one of our customers or an employee of a customer, we will, generally, store Personal data for as long as the business relationship lasts, and store project information, archives, documents, e-mails, contact information and similar information for after the business relationship has ended;
  • If you have sent an e-mail to our e-mail account provided below or the contact form on our website, the correspondence will be automatically deleted after six months, unless we based on a concrete assessment consider to have a legitimate interest in storing it longer, e.g. due to ongoing correspondence with you.

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need or a legal obligation to process your Personal data, it will be deleted or anonymized as soon as possible and in accordance with applicable law.

Your legal rights

You have certain rights under data protection laws in relation to Personal data we hold about you. You can ask us to:

  • confirm whether we process your Personal data;
  • give you access to and a copy of your Personal data;
  • change incorrect or incomplete Personal data;
  • delete or stop processing your Personal data;
  • suspend or limit the processing of your Personal data; and
  • disclose your Personal data to you or others in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format (data portability).

You can also:

  • object to the processing of your Personal data; and
  • withdraw consent where the basis of processing was consent.
  • Please note that exceptions and limitations from the above rights may apply. For example, we may not delete your Personal data if we are legally obliged to store the information.
