Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy applies to EG A/S’ website and all other websites belonging to EG A/S if not otherwise stated. If this Privacy Policy cannot be approved of, you should not use the site.

Non-personal information
EG automatically collects non-personal information about the use of this website by using cookies and log files. For details, see 'Use of cookies' below.

Personal information
Personal data entered by the user when creating user profiles in connection with the use of available services or otherwise, are registered, processed and stored in accordance with current legislation. Such information may be name, address, e-mail address, telephone number etc. The information is used in connection with inquiries and for marketing new EG products and services. Personal information will not be disclosed to a third party without the owner's prior acceptance unless it is necessary in order to carry out placed orders or inquiries, and in such cases only to the extent demanded by that purpose.

Security
Personal information is stored and/or handled in accordance with good practice, and EG shall make an effort to use technologies and software providing the required security so that data are not damaged or brought to a third party's knowledge. All particularly sensitive information such as civil registration number and bank account information are encrypted by transmission with a 128 bit SLL encryption. On sites where the user is logged on with user name and password, all transmission is encrypted. Delivering personal information – also via electronic media – always involves a risk. EG endeavour to minimise these risks as much as possible.

Storage time
Personal information is stored as long as it is relevant. If created user accounts or other functions to which personal information is attached, are not used for a long period, the information will be deleted automatically. At any time, the individual user may contact EG and request to have the personal information deleted.
