Privacy Policy

We keep all customer information confidential. By you providing your personal information to us, you grant us permission to use and store such information. We, in turn, will use our best efforts to keep such information safe and secure. Not surprisingly, your information is stored through our data management system. Your information can only be accessed by those who help manage that information and by signing up for a course you are granting us that right.

We don't sell or share that information with anyone. We only collect the information we do in order to provide the service for the courses, and so we can contact you about changes to that service.

We may send marketing messages to you if you have okayed that. You can always opt-out of that okay.

We may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that it is necessary to (a) comply with legal process served on us (b) protect and defend our rights or property or those of our customers; or (c) to protect the personal safety of our users or the public. Otherwise, we try our best to keep your information safe and secure.

To access courses from Norwegian Knitting, you will be given a username (Simplero ID) and password. Keep that info confidential because you are responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account. Please tell us immediately of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security. Help keep the courses safe.

Note that whenever you voluntarily make your personal information available for viewing by third parties online, such as on blogs, message boards, emails, or in chat areas, the information you share also can be seen, collected and used by third parties, and therefore, we cannot be responsible for any use of the information that you voluntarily share. Same goes with your password. Don’t share it with others.

Our product is not designed to store sensitive information about people, though we cannot prevent people from entering such information themselves, for instance in the Membership Forum. We assume no liability in the case that sensitive personal information are stored in our system without our written consent.

Data being processed and your rights

We process basic data such as name, email, phone number, and other similar non-sensitive information given to us by people themselves, when signing up for one of our courses.

We also store incidental information, such as IP addresses and clicks on links in emails or, in some cases, visits to websites.

We are processing this data in order to send you emails that you have requested, and to make offers for products that you are likely to be interested in.

You may of course at any point request that we stop sending you more information, or that we delete the information that we have on you.

You have a right to access your personal data.

At any point you may ask us to delete your information.

 

GDPR stuff

We keep our data records until they're explicitly deleted, either because someone asked us to be forgotten, or because a Norwegian Knitting account was closed.

We store them in a database running behind several layers of security.

Privacy Shield stuff

No guarantees

We pride ourselves on excellent and prompt customer service. We try to ensure that website availability is uninterrupted and that transmissions will be error-free. However, we cannot guarantee that your access will not be suspended or restricted from time to time, including to allow for repairs, maintenance or the introduction of new facilities or services. We, of course, try to limit the frequency and duration of any suspension or restriction because we want you using Norwegian Knitting on the Simplero platform as often as possible.

We take every precaution to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via Norwegian Knitting on Simplero, we do have security measures in place to prevent the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information that is obtained from you. However, due to the nature of the Internet, we cannot completely ensure, warrant or guarantee the security of any information transmitted to us or through our services. Submitting information is done at your own risk.
