Privacy policy

In this privacy policy, we provide a thorough explanation of the types of personal data Nordlaks AS and its subsidiaries collect and store, how we process them, and how long we retain them. Our goal is to be transparent and clear so that you, as a user, understand how we safeguard your personal data.


Nordlaks AS and its subsidiary are responsible for the company’s processing of personal data. If you have any questions or comments about this statement or how we process personal data, you can contact us via the contact form on our websites, or send a letter to Nordlaks AS, Industriveien 14, 8450 Stokmarknes


We collect and process the following categories of personal data:

Contact information: This includes name, email address, telephone number, and possibly company name.

Customer activity: Here, we collect reading and action history from apps, websites, or electronic communication we send out, as well as technical information about the devices you use.

Job Applicants

If you apply for a job with us, we need to process information about you to evaluate your application. The company uses the recruitment tool Webcruiter from Talentech to manage submitted applications for our vacancies. Data is stored in their systems, and you can read about their privacy policy here: Privacy Policy | Talentech

To evaluate submitted documentation, conduct interviews, and call references, the basis for processing is the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Article 6(1)(b). This provision allows us to process personal data when it is necessary to take steps at the request of the job applicant before entering into a contract. By applying for the position and uploading documents, we consider that the job applicant asks us to evaluate the submitted documentation, conduct interviews, and call references with the aim of entering into an employment contract.

If we conduct our investigations beyond this, for example, contacting someone who has issued a certificate but is not listed as a reference, the basis for such investigations is the GDPR Article 6(1)(f), which allows us to process information necessary to pursue a legitimate interest that outweighs the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the individual. The legitimate interest is to find the right candidate for the position.
