This privacy statement applies to AGP Advokater AS (AGP , we or us). AGP by the general manager is responsible for the processing of personal data described in this privacy statement. You will find our contact information below.
We care about your privacy, and process personal information in accordance with all applicable privacy laws, including the EU Privacy Regulation (GDPR).
Personal information includes all information and assessments that can be linked to you as an individual, including name, address, telephone number, e-mail and birth number. Below is an overview of the purposes for which we process personal data, the information in question and the legal basis for the processing.
Purpose, type of personal information and legal basis
We process personal data to the extent necessary for purposes related to AGP's legitimate interest, including for clarification of conflict of interest, establishment of client relationships, client control, case management / execution of assignments, administration of client relationships, invoicing, operation of IT, storage and archiving.
For private clients, we can also process personal data on the basis of an agreement with the person in question.
We are required to process personal data in order to fulfill legal obligations, such as the Money Laundering Act, the Courts Act and the Advocates Regulations.
Based on our business area, we will not normally have access to sensitive personal information etc. To the extent that it becomes relevant, the basis for processing will be the consent of the person in question or that the processing is necessary to be able to determine, assert or defend a legal claim.
We will be able to reuse documents we have created for clients in connection with other assignments or other internal knowledge management. There will normally be no personal information in such documents, but if it should, everything will be anonymized before we use it for other purposes. The basis for the treatment is our interest in utilizing the prepared knowledge in further counseling (balancing of interests).
We collect and process the following personal information in connection with legal assignments:
• Contact information for the client: Including name, e-mail address, telephone number, title and associated company.
• Information on actual ownership: Including name, ownership interests and date of birth.
• Case information: Information relevant to the legal assignment. This can be related to the client's employees, owners, counterparties, counterparties' lawyers and others who have a connection to the case or are mentioned in the case documents.
• Billing information: Contact information for the invoicing manager.
We create separate case files for legal assignments that are performed on behalf of the client. Time and costs incurred on a case are registered in our accounting system.
Partners and suppliers
We process personal data to the extent necessary to fulfill agreements with our suppliers and partners. We collect and process, among other things, personal information in the form of contact details and other information that is considered necessary to be able to answer inquiries, or to enter into or fulfill agreements. For private individuals, the basis for treatment will be an agreement. For companies, the basis for treatment will be our legitimate interest in the form of the need to have contact in connection with the relevant agreement.
In connection with our recruitment work, we will be able to process personal information about the candidate that is used to assess the candidate and for communication with the candidate in the recruitment process. This may, for example, include information we have received by e-mail, on "arbeidslivsdagene" or via a recruitment agency. It is necessary to process the personal data in order to be able to enter into a possible agreement on permanent or temporary employment. If the candidate is not employed, we will only retain information about the candidate if he or she has explicitly consented to this. Access to personal information in connection with recruitment is limited internally and will only be shared with our employees who are involved in the recruitment process.
IT operations and security
Personal information stored in our IT systems may be available to us or to our suppliers in connection with system updates, implementation or follow-up of security measures, error correction or other maintenance. The basis for processing will be our interest (balancing of interests) and legal obligation to have satisfactory information security.
Marketing, newsletters, etc.
From time to time, we will send out newsletters and other information to e-mail addresses registered on clients to whom we regularly provide legal services and others who have requested our newsletter. The basis for processing will be our legitimate interest in sending information and marketing inquiries to clients and connections to inform about news and events or consent from the addressee. If there is an existing customer relationship, the marketing will take place in accordance with the Marketing Act. In other contexts, marketing is based on the consent of the person. Recipients of the newsletter or other information may at any time give notice that they no longer wish to receive such information. When sending out newsletters, recipients can easily unsubscribe from the service by using the link that is included in each individual inquiry.
Who we share personal information with
Our providers of IT services will have access to personal information if personal information is stored with the supplier or is otherwise available to the supplier in accordance with the contract with us. The suppliers act in accordance with the data processor agreement and under our instructions. The supplier may only use the personal information for the purposes we have determined and which are described in this privacy statement.
We use suppliers who are in countries outside the EU and the EEA. For the transfer of personal data to these providers, we use the EU's standard agreements for transfers and / or the EU-US Privacy Shield framework.
Lawyers are subject to a sanctioned duty of confidentiality. All information that is entrusted to us in connection with an assignment is handled confidentially.
We do not disclose personal information in other cases or in other ways than those described in this privacy statement, unless the client explicitly encourages or consents to this or the disclosure is required by law.
Deletion of personal information
We store your personal information for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which the information was collected. If we no longer have a relevant basis for processing, for example because you withdraw consent or we no longer have a legitimate interest in processing your personal data, we will delete the data. In some cases, we have a duty to store personal information longer, for example in accordance with accounting legislation and money laundering legislation. Information stored in accordance with statutory obligations is deleted when the obligation ends.
You have rights in personal information that concerns you. What rights you have depends on the circumstances.
Withdraw consent: If our basis for treatment is consent, you can withdraw this at any time by contacting us about this at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Request access: You have the right to access which personal information we have registered about you, as long as the duty of confidentiality does not prevent this. To ensure that personal information is disclosed to the right person, we may require that the request for access be made in writing or that identity be verified in another way.
Request correction or deletion: You can ask us to correct incorrect information we have about you or ask us to delete personal information. We will as far as possible accommodate a request to delete personal information, but we can not do this if there are compelling reasons for not deleting, for example that we must store the information for documentation purposes.
Data portability: In some cases, you may have access to the personal information you have provided to us in order to have it transferred in a machine-readable format to another law firm. If it is technically possible, in some cases it will be possible to have these transferred directly to the other company.
Complaint to the supervisory authority: If you disagree with the way we process your personal data, you can submit a complaint to the Norwegian Data Protection Authority. You can find information on how to contact the Data Inspectorate on the Data Inspectorate's website.
We have established procedures for handling personal information in a secure manner. The measures are both of a technical and organizational nature. We make regular assessments of the security of all central systems used for handling personal data, and agreements have been entered into that provide suppliers of such systems to ensure satisfactory information security.
Access to personal information (and client / case information) is limited to personnel who need access to perform their tasks.
We have adopted internal IT guidelines, and we regularly train employees with regard to security and use of IT systems.
We use the analysis tool Google Analytics. This means that we register information as for analyzing traffic and activity on our websites so that we can develop and improve the websites. We will not use your IP address to identify you. The basis for treatment will be our legitimate interest in ensuring optimal operation of our websites.
