Our privacy policy.

Last Update: March 2023

At Nordic Sustainability, we’re committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. This Privacy Statement describes the ways in which Nordic Sustainability collects, holds, and uses information about individual persons who visit this website.

By using this website, you acknowledge having received the information as set forth in this privacy policy, you also acknowledge that Nordic Sustainability may periodically change, modify, add or remove, or otherwise update this privacy policy at its discretion, without prior notification.

We therefore encourage you to consult the latest version of this Privacy Policy before (continuing) using this website. It is our intention to post changes to our privacy policy on this page so that you are fully informed concerning the types of information we are gathering, how we use it, and under what circumstances it may be disclosed. Our Privacy Policy is located in the footer of our website and is also triggered when Personal Data are requested. At such data collection points, further explanation may be provided, where appropriate, as to the purposes for which the data will be used.

Nordic Sustainability (“we”, “us” and “our”) acts as controller for the processing of Personal Data covered in this Privacy Policy. Any questions regarding this Policy and our privacy practices should be sent by email to hello@nordicsustainability.com or by writing to Nordic Sustainability, Fiolstræde 31-33, DK-1171 Copenhagen.

1. Pledge on privacy

We do not collect Personal Data for those accessing the nordicsustainability.com site unless we explicitly request it, and you provide it, for certain services. The term “Personal Data” as used in this Privacy Policy refers to information such as your name, birth date, e-mail address, mailing address, or telephone number. Generally, we will only process your Personal Data as described in this Privacy Policy. However, we reserve the right to conduct additional processing to the extent permitted or required by law, or in support of any legal or criminal investigation or as otherwise notified to you.

2. Intended use of Personal Data

Most of our services do not require any form of registration, allowing you to visit our site without telling us who you are. However, a few of our services require you to provide us with Personal Data. In these situations, if you choose to withhold any Personal Data requested by us, it may not be possible for you to gain access to certain parts of the site and for us to respond to your query.

We use and process your Personal Data to operate this website and to communicate with you, upon your request, and it is in our legitimate interest to do so. Where required, we will ask for your consent before processing your Personal Data. Although unlikely, we may also be subject to legal obligations that mandate us to process your Personal Data in a certain way.

3. Non-disclosure of Personal Data

Nordic Sustainability will not sell, share, or otherwise distribute your Personal Data to third parties except as provided in this Privacy Policy.

4. Data Security and Retention

We maintain appropriate technical, physical, and organisational measures intended to protect Personal Data against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure, or access. Unfortunately, no information security system can be 100% secure. As a result, although we strive to protect your Personal Data, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of the Personal Information against unpredictable loss or unauthorised access. We only store Personal Data for as long as necessary to achieve the processing purposes set out in this Privacy Policy or otherwise in order to comply with applicable law.

5. Your Rights

Whenever we process Personal Data, we take reasonable steps to ensure that your Personal Data is kept accurate and up-to-date for the purposes it was collected, and you are responsible for informing us of any relevant update to your Personal Data. You have the right to access, correct, and object to the processing of your Personal Data by us if such processing is not reasonably required for a legitimate business purpose as described in this policy or in compliance with law.

Upon request, we will provide you with a copy of your personal data, delete it, or restrict its processing. You are also entitled to lodge a complaint with a competent Data Protection Authority.

Your rights are not absolute, and restrictions, conditions, and limitations may apply. If you wish to contact us regarding our use of your Personal Data or to exercise your rights, please email us at hello@nordicsustainability.com or by writing to Nordic Sustainability, Fiolstræde 31-33, DK-1171 Copenhagen. If you contact us, please note that you are concerned with data provided over our nordicsustainability.com website, as well as the specific information you would like us to provide, correct, update, or delete plus your proper identification. As indicated, all rights requests will be subject to restrictions and limitations such as any applicable legal and ethical reporting or document filing or retention obligations imposed on us.

6. “Cookies”

Like many other websites, nordicsustainability.com uses cookies. ‘Cookies’ are small pieces of information sent by an organisation to your computer and stored on your hard drive to allow that website to recognise you when you visit. They collect statistical data about your browsing actions and patterns and do not identify you as an individual. This information helps us to improve our website.

If you do not want us to install non-necessary cookies, please either decline them upon entering the site via the Cookie Banner or email us at hello@nordicsustainability.com.

We would like to inform you, however, that if you do not accept the non-necessary cookies, you may not be able to use all functionality of your browser software. We may obtain the services of outside parties to assist us in collecting and processing the information described in this Section. For further information on cookies visit www.aboutcookies.org.

7. Links to other sites

This Privacy Policy applies only to the nordicsustainability.com website, and not to websites owned by third parties. We may provide links to other websites that we believe may be of interest to our visitors. This Privacy Policy is not intended to be applicable to any other site, including those 3rd party sites linked on the nordicsustainability.com site, and we do not take responsibility for 3rd party sites.

8. Minors

Unless otherwise indicated, nordicsustainability.com is not directed to minors as defined by applicable law (often below 18 or 16 years of age depending on the jurisdiction). We do not knowingly collect Personal Data from minors. If you provide us with Personal Data of minors, you represent that you have the appropriate authority to do so and that you can demonstrate such authority to us upon request.

9. Jurisdiction and cross-border transfer

We are based in Denmark and the majority of your Personal Data will be stored and processed therein, but processing will also occur in any country where we engage service providers that process data for us, and specifically the United States of America. By providing your Personal Data, you understand that your Personal Data will be transferred to countries outside of your country of residence, to businesses that may have data protection rules that are different from those of your country of residence. Although unlikely, in certain circumstances, courts, law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies, or security authorities in those other countries may be entitled to access your Personal Data. We only transfer your Personal Data to jurisdictions that are not found to provide an adequate level of data protection in compliance with applicable data protection law with appropriate protection, for instance by executing Standard Contractual Clauses to govern the processing of your data.
