Collection of personal information
We collect and use personal information when you visit our website, including when you fill out forms on our website. Personal information is also used to provide the service for which the information is collected, including services, etc. offered via the website and other similar channels. In addition, the information is used to gain greater knowledge of our customers and other stakeholders, among other things with a view to targeting our marketing to the individual customers and stakeholders.

Please note that certain personal information is necessary to collect in order for you to use the website's functions. It will appear from the relevant forms whether the submission of personal data is mandatory or optional. If the submission of personal data is mandatory, the field in question will be marked with an asterisk (*). If you choose not to provide the personal information in question, you may not be able to use the desired function. As an example, we need your contact information to be able to respond to an inquiry from you.
If you provide personal information about anyone other than yourself, we encourage you to first obtain the consent of those individuals to provide the information.
The basis for the processing of your personal data is:
Legitimate interests: In certain cases, the processing of your personal information is based on HansenGroup's legitimate interests, eg our interest in being able to respond to requests from you, conduct statistics and customer surveys, improve or develop the website and our services.

Duration of storage
The information is stored for the period permitted by law and we delete it when it is no longer needed. The period depends on the nature of the information and the background of storage. It is therefore not possible to specify a general time frame for when information is deleted.
What we do with the information we gather
The primary purpose of collecting personal information is to enable our team to respond to a request from you.
If you consent to receive additional information, one of our HansenGroup companies may periodically send promotional emails about new products, special offers or other information we think you may find interesting using the email address you provided.
Your information will never be shared with any company outside the HansenGroup of companies unless required to do so for legal purposes.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. To prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. The site is SSL enabled, and therefore the information you provide is encrypted by secure server software before its safely transmitted across the internet.
Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). The information generated by the cookie about your use of our website does not contain any personal information other than IP address. This information will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating the use of our website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.
We will not use or share any data collected through Google Analytics for any purpose other than reviewing our website usage and performance in a summarised/aggregated form. We will not try to associate Google Analytics data with any other personal data that we may hold; the Google Analytics data will remain anonymous to us.
