How we process your personal data (legal basis for processing)

We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to or where we have obtained your consent. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:

  • Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests. This may be, for example, where you provide personal information to us for a job application and we evaluate that information in order to consider the application.
  • Where we need to comply with a legal obligation.

Change of purpose

We will only use your personal data for the purpose for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason, for example, where this is required by law. We will never share, trade or sell you information to a third party for marketing purposes.

Service Providers

Idemitsu group companies follow the same rules when involved in processing your personal data. These rules are called “binding corporate rules” and apply if your personal data is transferred to any group company.

Additionally, some processing of your personal data may involve services outside of Norway. In this case, your personal data will be protected by appropriate transfer safeguards which guarantee an adequate level of data protection wherever your data is physically sent.

Data security

We have put in place appropriate controls to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those within IPN who have a business need to know. Occasionally, we may be required to share information with a competent public authority to comply with a legal obligation, in which case it will be disclosed subject to appropriate confidentiality arrangements.

Data retention

We will only store your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for and will then be erased.

Your legal rights

You have certain rights under data protection laws in relation to personal data we hold about you, to:

  • access and receive a copy of your data on request
  • change incorrect or incomplete data
  • delete or stop processing your data (eg where the purpose for processing has ceased)
  • object to the processing of your personal data in certain circumstances
  • suspend processing your personal data in certain circumstances
  • withdraw consent where the basis of processing was consent

Please see below for contact details for exercising these rights.
