Privacy policy and Terms of Use

Protecting your personal data is key to us here at NOHA. This privacy policy and the terms of use (referred to jointly below as "the terms") are applicable to our website and other digital services such as blogs, email subscriptions and recording of data by means of forms ("digital channels").

This version is updated  29.06.2018.
The terms control everything we do when it comes to collecting, processing and using data. They also relate to your rights as regards access, amendment and deletion of personal data relating to you. You consent to the terms by using our digital channels. You should avoid using our digital channels if you disagree with the data practice as described in the terms.



A number of important terms are defined here:

  • Personal data is any data that can be linked to you as an individual, either directly or indirectly. See the section entitled “What personal data do we process?” for information on the types of personal data that we process.
  • Anonymised data is data where we have removed all identifiable elements so that it is no longer possible to link the data to you as an individual.
  • Personal data processing is any use of personal data, including collection, storage, amendment, compilation, submission and deletion.
  • Our “digital channels” include our website and other digital services such as blogs, email subscriptions and recording of data by means of forms.


The data that we collect about you is dependent on which of our digital channels you use and what data you give us when you register, make purchases or in other contexts.

We collect personal data that:

  • you provide to us when you make a purchase or register for our services, subscribe to our newsletters and blogs, fill in a form or contact us.
  • is recorded automatically when you use our digital channels.

You are not obliged to provide us with personal data, but if you choose not to it is possible that we will be unable to provide you with our services as we will be unable to bill you for services or send you data that you request, for example.

We have profiles / pages on social media. When you visit these pages, such as our company page on Facebook, the social media, such as Facebook, will process your personal information and use cookies. More information about how the social media processes personal information and how they use cookies can be found in the respective social media, such as Facebook’s Privacy and Cookies pages. In some cases, we may use this information through the social media to show you targeted ads.


We can process personal data in the following categories:

  • Basic data, e.g. name, employer, job title and contact details.
  • Demographic data, e.g. sex and date of birth.
  • Information on your account, e.g. order details, payment details, marketing permissions and contact with customer support.
  • Data generated in connection with the use of our digital channels, e.g. technical data about the device that you are using when you visit our digital channels (including date and time, the type of PC/smartphone, operating system and browser you are using, IP addresses, screen size, etc.). Find out more under “Navigation data” – this section provides a more in-depth description.
  • Data in connection with identification and registration of a customer or user, e.g. data on the user’s identity and password.
  • Any other data stored with your consent. In this case, you will receive specific information on what data we store and what we will use it for when we request your consent.

Our digital channels are not intended for or aimed at children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly store data about children under the age of 13. If you think we have stored data about a child under 13, you can contact us in writing so that we can delete the data.



We use cookies and similar technologies in our digital channels. Cookies help us to establish which parts of our digital channels are most popular, as well as providing information on what pages users are visiting and how long they are remaining on each page. This data is used for development and analysis of services and targeted advertising on the Internet, for example. See section 9 for more information about our use of cookies.


We automatically collect data about your device specifications and software, as well as your visit. This data may, for example, include your IP address, browser type, domain name, ISP, files viewed (HTML pages, graphics, etc.), operating system, access time and the location from which you accessed our digital channels.


We use tracking pixels (e.g. clear gifs, web beacons, web bugs) that help us to improve our digital channels by telling us what content is being displayed. Tracking pixels are tiny graphic elements with unique identifiers that are similar in function to cookies and are used to track user behaviour online. Unlike cookies, which are stored on the user’s hard drive, tracking pixels are incorporated invisibly in our digital channels or emails. This allows us to gauge the effects of our marketing. Information that we gather from emails is linked to customers’ personal data.


We may use third party companies when we advertise online. These companies use cookies and tracking pixels to collect data about your activities on this and other websites in order to offer you targeted advertising based on your interests. If you no longer wish to receive such information with a view to providing you targeted advertising, you can unsubscribe via this website: Remember, this will not prevent you seeing any form of advertising. You will still see general advertising.


Data that we store about you is used for the following purposes:

  • To provide services: We process personal data in order to provide you with services. For example, your data is processed in connection with
    • provision of content when you request it, e.g. emails to recipients who have subscribed to newsletters or blog updates,
    • identification of customers,
    • billing and payment follow-up, and
    • troubleshooting, customer service and complaints handling.
  • Development and analysis: We process personal data in order to improve and develop our services and digital channels.
  • Sales and marketing: We use both anonymised data and personal data for marketing purposes. These activities include marketing, including
    • creating target groups for marketing
    • adapting and correcting marketing by providing recommendations or targeted content in our digital channels, for example
    • sending out newsletters and other forms of direct marketing when this is permitted on the basis of your consent or applicable law
    • market analyses, customer satisfaction surveys, etc.
    • “washing” contact information against the records of Facebook, Google and other digital stakeholders so that we can communicate with you and other users like you via these channels
  • Information security and misuse of services: We may process personal data to ensure effective security in our digital channels. We may also process personal data in order to detect or prevent various types of misuse.
  • Compliance with legal provisions: We process personal data in order to comply with our statutory obligations, e.g. in connection with keeping accounts and in order to provide information to competent authorities when we are ordered to do so in accordance with Norwegian law.
  • Other purposes for which you have granted consent: We may process your personal data for any other purpose for which you have specifically granted consent.


We prioritise protection of your personal data, and we are constantly working to protect personal data and other confidential information. Our security work involves physical, technical and administrative measures, including protection of personnel, data, IT infrastructure, internal and public networks, office buildings and technical facilities.

Our security work also involves regular risk assessments and review of various factors such as available technology, business needs and legal requirements. This should ensure that we always have sufficient security measures in place so that we can prevent personal data falling into the wrong hands, for example.


We may provide personal data to:

  • Data processors who work for us as subcontractors and process your data on behalf of ourselves. Such subcontractors cannot use the personal data for any purpose other than providing the service agreed with us. We take special precautions to ensure that our subcontractors operate in compliance with these terms and Norwegian personal data legislation, particularly when the data processor is located in a country outside Norway or the EU/EEA.
  • Other parties with your consent.

We may also disclose data:

  • In legal cases, e.g. when ordered to do so by the courts, the police or other public authorities, in accordance with strict predefined processes.
  • In connection with a transfer of business, e.g. as part of a merger, purchase, sale of assets or transfer of services to another company. In this case, you will be notified by email and/or see a notification in our digital channels with regard to any changes of ownership, use of your personal data and options that may be available to you with regard to your personal data.


We will store your personal data first long as necessary in order to fulfil the purposes specified in the terms, unless a longer storage period is required or permitted in accordance with applicable law.

Your personal data will be stored for as long as you have an active relationship with us or our digital channels, or until you personally ask us to forget you and erase stored information about you. We define a relationship with us or our digital channels as (i) being our customer, (ii) having consented to receive marketing information from us, (iii) having actively requested contact with us via social media, email or e-forms, (iv) having been active in our digital channels after you have given your consent. The relationship is defined as active if it has been used over the last 24 months.

Storage of anonymised data is not subject to such restrictions or requirements. We also attempt to ensure that personal data and other customer information is up to date and correct, and that we do not store information that is unnecessary as regards the purposes of the processing of personal data.

Cookies help us to establish which parts of our digital channels are most popular, as well as providing information on what pages users are visiting and how long they are remaining on each page.
