The Copenhagen Compliance and E-Compliance Academy group of companies


We have written this Privacy Policy to inform you, by the terms of the Global Data Privacy and Protection Regulation and mandates, related to the data and information we collect, how we use the data and what you may do as a visitor to our website(s).

The protection of your personal data during the collection, processing and use during your visit to our website is critical. Personal information is information that helps to find your identity. This includes information such as name, address, postal address, and telephone number. Information that is not directly related to the identity and status (for example, preferred websites or the number of users of a website) is not collected.

The law protects all personal data. Below is information on the collected data during your visit to the Site and how it is used:

Collection and processing of data

Every access to our website and every retrieval of a file stored on the website is logged. The storage serves internal system-related, statistical purposes and for data security reasons to ensure the stability and operational safety of our system, primarily provided by the host as a standard.

The following are logged: name of the retrieved file, date and time of the retrieval, amount of transmitted data, message about the successful retrieval, web browser and related. Besides, the IP addresses of the requesting computer are logged. We store this data for approx. Sixty days, unless we have a business, training or certification relationship.

Additional, your personal data will only be collected if the data subject voluntarily provides this information, for example, in the context of a request or registration. This option is currently not in use, except when you register for our conferences, workshops, seminars and related participation.

Use and disclosure of personal data

Insofar as you have provided us with personal data, we only use these to answer your inquiries, to process contracts concluded with you and for technical administration. We store your data within the scope of the legal storage obligations.

The deletion of the stored personal data takes place if you revoke your consent to the storage, if their knowledge is no longer necessary to fulfil the purpose pursued with the storage or if their storage for other legal reasons is inadmissible, unsubscribe to any communication.

Your rights

You have the right to information, correction, deletion, restriction, data portability, revocation and opposition. Contact us regarding any issues. If you believe that the processing of your data violates the general provisions of most global Data Privacy and Protection mandates or if you feel that your privacy claims are violated in a manner that we regret, you may contact us first and if you do not get a satisfactory response from us then to the local Regulatory Authority. Due to the global nature of our business, it would probably be the local data protection authority. You are welcome to contact us to get information on the local authority’s contact details.

Upon written request, we will gladly inform you about the data stored about you. Security note: We endeavour to store your personal data by taking all technical and organisational possibilities not to be accessible to third parties. When communicating by e-mail, complete data security cannot be guaranteed. We, therefore, recommend that confidential information be sent by post. We cannot accept liability for external links to third-party content despite careful content control. Please see the attached note regarding your rights according to GDPR and global regulations.

Cookies and web analytics

Cookies, other tracking technologies, and functions of the web analysis service of our website host, can be used on our internet platform in many ways. Cookies are small text information that enables us to recognise the user and analyse our websites’ use. The generated data is transmitted to the provider’s server and stored there.

They serve to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure overall. Besides, cookies are used to measure the frequency of page views and general navigation. Your IP address will be saved but pseudonymised. As a result, only a rough localisation is possible.

By using our website, you agree that we use cookies. You can refuse and delete the acceptance of cookies in your browser settings at any time. How this works in detail. Please refer to the instructions of your browser manufacturer. If you decide against certain technical and functional cookies, the functionality of our website may be limited. In addition, some cookies may be stored on your device until you delete them.

TLS encryption with https

We use https to transfer data over the Internet securely. Using TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for the secure transmission of data over the Internet, we can protect confidential data. You acknowledge using this security for data transmission through the small padlock icon in the upper left corner of the browser and the use of the https scheme as part of our Internet address.
