What is personal data?

Personal data is any data that can be linked either directly or indirectly to you as a person, such as name, date of birth, personal identity number, postal address, email address, IP address, vehicle registration number, mobile telephone number, behaviour patterns such as web searches and biometric data such as fingerprints, iris recognition, etc.

What is sensitive personal data?

Sensitive personal data is data concerning health status, sexual orientation, membership of trade unions, religious, political or philosophical beliefs, ethnic and racial status, etc.

What kind of personal data do we process and what do we use the data for?

People visiting our websites can voluntarily provide personal data in connection with services such as receiving newsletters or using contact forms. If you decide not to provide personal data, we may not be able to give you access to products or services or get in touch with you when you contact us via the contact form on our websites. See how you can control access to your personal data via cookies in the information below.

If you choose to be one of our customers/clients, it will, however, be necessary to submit both personal data and sensitive personal data in order for us to be able to carry out assignments for you.

The data we collect for the above-mentioned purposes includes both data that you provide us with and data we collect on your behalf, as well as data we collect when you use our websites.

What is the legal basis for us to process your personal data?

The legal basis for our processing of your personal data is usually provided in the assignment agreement or through consent, depending on which data it concerns in the context in which it is being collected.

When we receive an enquiry regarding whether we can accept an assignment, we conduct an internal impartiality check (conflict clarification) before we accept any assignment. A conflict check of private clients generally includes full name, what the case is about and, if relevant, creditworthiness. An impartiality check serves a legitimate purpose and is pursuant to article 6, no. 1, letter f of the GDPR (balancing of interests).

In connection with the establishment of a client relationship, we will also conduct a client check in accordance with the regulations of the Money Laundering Act, such as an identity check. This processing is pursuant to article 6, no. 1, letter c of the GDPR.

If we accept the assignment, we will register contact information in order to enter into contracts with the client, for example. For private clients, this is is pursuant to article 6, no. 1 letter b of the GDPR and for corporate clients it is pursuant to letter f of the same article.

As our client, you will legally authorise us (assignment agreement) to process your personal data and your sensitive data to the extent necessary to assist you in determining, formally submitting and defending legal claims.

Some assignments will require us to gain access to data about parties or other persons affected by a case. Such data may appear in documents submitted by the client or by other forms of correspondence in the case. The processing of personal data in connection with assignments for business clients is pursuant to article 6, no.1, letter c of the GDPR. In some cases we will also access sensitive personal data including health information or previous sentences and offences. In such instances the processing of data is pursuant to Section 11, article 9, no. 2, letter f of the Personal Data Act.

Dedicated folders are established for assignments carried out on behalf of the client. Accrued time and costs will be registered in our accounts system. This is data that also forms the basis of invoicing. The legal basis for such registration is pursuant to article 6, letter b of the GDPR for private clients and letter f for corporate clients.

When you visit our website you consent to our use of cookies as well as our use of cookies to make it easier for you to use our websites and to personalise certain parts of the content. Read more about cookies below.

For marketing, newsletters and other relevant information about our business, processing will take place based on receiving consent from the party that receives marketing in accordance with the Marketing Practices Act. Cf. Section 15(3) and Section 15(1) of the Marketing Practices Act and article 6, no. 1 a of the GDPR.

Who do we share your data with?

Our suppliers of IT services will be able to access personal data if such data is stored by the supplier or, in some other way, is accessible to the supplier in accordance with a contract with us. The supplier shall conduct itself in accordance with a data processing agreement and our instructions. The supplier may only use personal data for the purposes we have determined and which are described in this privacy statement. This is pursuant to article 6, no. 1 f and articles 32 and 6, no. 1, letter c of the GDPR.

Advokatfirmaet Halvorsen & Co DA only uses the data it receives about you when you search on our websites or submit forms to us from these websites for the law firm’s own business. This data is not shared with third parties, but we may use subcontractors to deliver all or parts of the websites. We also use external, professional collaborating partners for marketing, such as Google and Facebook. Such subcontractors may process personal data on our behalf. Subcontractors and collaborating partners are based in Norway, the EU and EU-approved countries and are obligated to safeguard your privacy rights in accordance with the GDPR.

As our client, you can be assured that your data will not be shared with any party other than the opposing party, to the extent necessary. It is often the case that the opposing party in our cases is an insurance company or a public sector body such as NAV or the Norwegian System of Patient Injury Compensation (NPE). In cases in which it is relevant, it will also be necessary to provide data to committees, conciliation boards and courts of law. When statements are to be procured from expert witnesses, e.g. doctors or technical experts, these parties must also be given access to data necessary to resolving the assignment.

Lawyers must observe a duty of non-disclosure subject to criminal sanctions, pursuant to Section 111 of the Criminal Code. All data entrusted to us in connection with an assignment will be handled in confidence.

We do not provide personal data in other instances or in other ways than those specified in this privacy statement, unless the client explicitly asks us to do so or we are legally obliged to do so.

How do we protect your personal data?

We store personal data on paper and/or digitally.

Advokatfirmaet Halvorsen & Co DA has established procedures to ensure that unauthorised parties do not gain access to your personal data and that all processing of such data otherwise takes place in accordance with governing law. Measures include frequent risk assessments in which technical systems and procedures for protecting information security are also included. We have established procedures for processing and protecting your right to inspect your data and to rectify any errors in said data.

We conduct frequent security assessments in all key systems used for processing personal data, and agreements have been entered into that obligate suppliers of such systems to ensure a satisfactory level of information security.

We have internal IT guidelines, and we conduct frequent employee training in security and use of IT systems.

All our processing of personal data is conducted within the EU/EEA region.

When do we delete your personal data?

We do not store personal data longer than necessary to provide our legal services or to fulfil the purpose of processing in some other way within the legal requirements for storage.

The storage time will usually be 10 years from the conclusion of your case with us. All digital information and paper documentation will be deleted approx. 10 years after the conclusion of the case. Storage is considered necessary out of consideration for both the client and for our own part, as questions or disputes may subsequently arise in which access to the data is necessary. The legal basis for this is pursuant to article 6, no. 1 letter f of the GDPR (balancing of interests) and article 9, no. 2, letter f, as well as Section 11 of the Personal Data Act.

Accounting legislation otherwise obligates us to store specific accounts documents for a stipulated period of time. When a specific purpose suggests storage for a stipulated period of time, we will ensure that the personal data is exclusively used for the relevant purpose during this period.

Your rights.

As a user of our websites, you have the right to demand rectification and deletion and to limit our use of your data. The processing of personal data is based on consent, and you may withdraw your consent at any time.

As our client, you also have the right to inspect all data we hold on you, unless our duty of non-disclosure prevents this.

We may require a request for inspection to be submitted in writing to ensure that the data is given to the proper person.

With a few exceptions, you have the right to have incorrect information associated with your personal data corrected or deleted, and you may have the right to have data deleted that we no longer require to complete your assignment.

You are also entitled to set limits with regard to how your personal data will be used. In this respect, however, it is important to be aware that such limitations may affect our ability to conclude the case to your best advantage.

With regard to requirements for deleting data, exceptions apply to what is necessary for us to deliver a service that you still wish to access, or in cases in which we are legally obligated to store data for a specific period.

We will, as far as possible, respond to a request to delete personal data, but may be unable to do so if there are compelling reasons not to delete the data, for example, that we have to store the data for the purpose of documentation.

We cannot be held accountable for any data we have received from other bodies, e.g. medical records, nor do we have any opportunity to delete such data. Questions concerning this must be directed to the issuer of such data.

In certain cases, you have the right to data portability, i.e. you will have the option, for example, to take your personal data in a machine-readable format to another law firm.

You also have the right to oppose the processing of personal data and the right to oppose personal profiling and automated decision-making.

You may also object to the use of data and also submit a complaint about our processing of your personal data to the Norwegian Data Protection Authority (see www.datatilsynet.no).
