2. Hans Følsgaard’s collection of your personal data
HF's processing of your personal data complies with the current requirements at any time, including the security requirements arising from the personal data protection legislation and the related executive orders. HF regularly reviews the registered personal data and deletes the information that it is no longer relevant to process. The same applies to personal data that a user wishes to be erased and for which HF no longer has any basis for processing. When you use our website or sign up for our news services, this will require you to provide certain personal data. This is necessary in order to be able to use the full functionality of the website in order to send you the relevant newsletters, etc. HF therefore collects and registers the personal data you provide on HF's website in connection with your use of the website and registration for our news services.
3. What information is collected?
When you visit our website, the following information about you is collected:
1 Which pages you have viewed and when – your “electronic footprint”
2 Which browser you use
3 Which IP address you have, and
4 Any user name that you have
In order to target our marketing, HF also collects information about your interests within the following categories, which you may tick off on registering for the news services: automation, cable & cable markup, infrastructure/electrical engineering, power technology, telecom, rail and container.
4. The purpose of collection and the retention period
HF collects your contact details and company/workplace in connection with registration for our news services in order to complete your registration and to deliver relevant newsletters, marketing via electronic mail, cf. Section 2(1), paragraph (15) of the Danish Marketing Act, and e-mails to you. The personal data is processed for the purpose of transmitting electronic mail to you, including newsletters and other relevant marketing related to automation, cable & cable marking, electrical engineering, power technology, telecom, rail and container, and campaigns, press releases, invitations to events/seminars/fairs within your chosen areas of interest, as well as competitions.
Information about your interests is collected in order to send relevant newsletters, etc. to you. The news services are thus selected on the basis of the information you have provided about your interests within the aforementioned categories and are thereby adapted to your situation. HF will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the aforementioned purposes.

If you opt out of this service or these services again, HF will erase your personal data within 30 days.

HF treats all personal data as confidential and we have undertaken a number of technical and organisational security measures to protect personal data from accidental or unlawful destruction, loss or impairment, and from being disclosed to unauthorised persons, misused or otherwise processed in conflict with personal data legislation.
