Privacy Policy

Privacy policy for end-users of Ordinary Objects

1. General

This statement ("The Privacy Policy") describes how we process your personal information and which rights you have as a registered user when you use our services. Personal information is all assessments or information which can be linked to individuals. You can send us an email to at any time if you have any questions about privacy or wish to exercise your rights as registered.

"You," "your," and "User" mean each and every person who accesses or uses our Site or any Service (as defined in the applicable Terms and Conditions). The words "Ordinary Objects," “us,” and “we” mean Ordinary Objects AS. 

Note, however, that other third parties may be the data controller for processing other information. If you for example have gained access to Ordinary Objects through a company you are affiliated with, the company will be responsible for processing for most purposes, while Ordinary Objects will be the data processor on behalf of the company. If you want more information about how third parties process your personal information, you can read more about this in the relevant third parties’ privacy statement. 

Ordinary Objects may change this Privacy Policy at any time by posting the revised Privacy Policy on this website and indicating the effective date of the revised Privacy Policy.
