Use and disclosure of personal data

The purpose of storing personal data is related to assessment of qualifications, vocational skills and core work skills to create a personal CV (e.g., RefuPass and/or Europass documents) showing individual skills profiles. Upon request of the individual User, data may be available to third parties like guidance services and training providers. The data will not be sold or distributed to other parties for other purposes.

Personal data is stored only in those cases where you as the User provide it, for example, when registering in Skillsbank, using a self-assessment module or ordering information material. A state-of-the-art encryption tool (Secure Sockets Layer, SSL) is used when transmitting personal data.

All data is stored within the European Economic Area (EEA). We take all steps necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

Data will be stored as long as the individual User profile is active in the system.

Your right to information

Based on the Norwegian Personal Data Legislation and GDPR, you may contact us at no cost if you have questions relating to the registration, processing or use of your personal information. You may at any time correct or delete your personal data and on request have your whole profile deleted.
