Privacy policy

This Privacy Policy was last updated on November 17, 2016.

Even though The Nordic Archives, and the Website (“Site”) is all about exploring the mysterious wonders of the north, there is no mystic or hidden agenda behind our Privacy policy. We take the privacy and protection of your personal information very seriously. To learn more, please read this Privacy Policy.


What This Privacy Policy Covers

This Privacy Policy describes Nordic Archives practices with respect to Personal Information and Anonymous Information that we collect when you use the Services. This Privacy Policy does not apply to the use of your Personal Information that is collected by third parties that Nordic Archives does not own or control or that do not support Nordic Archives in providing the Services.

This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use and (under certain conditions) disclose your personal information. This Privacy Policy also explains the steps we have taken to secure your personal information. Finally, this Privacy Policy explains your options regarding the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information. By visiting the Site directly or through another site, you accept the practices described in this Policy.

This privacy policy applies to the Site. This privacy policy does not necessarily apply to any offline collection of your personal information. Please see below for details. We are not responsible for the content or privacy practices on any web site not operated by Nordic Archives to which the Site links or that links to the Site.

Information we collect through Third Parties

Online Advertising

To provide you a more relevant and interesting experience, we may work with third party companies to display ads elsewhere on the Internet. These companies may use cookies (a small text file), pixels, or similar technologies that are placed in browsers to gather information about your visits to Nordic Archives Properties as well as your visits elsewhere on the Internet. These companies use this information to provide you more relevant advertising known as interest-based advertising.


How do we use the information we collect?

In general, we use the information (including Personal Information) you submit to us or our third parties to respond to requests you make or to improve our Services and better meet the needs of our consumers. Examples of how we might use this information include:

What information do we share?

We will NEVER sell your Personal Information. Except as otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy, we do not disclose to or share your Personal Information with third parties, unless you ask or authorize us to do so.

We may provide your Personal Information to third party service providers and suppliers who work on behalf of or with us to provide you with some of the services and features of the Services and to help us communicate with our users (including in connection with payments). However, these service providers and suppliers do not have any independent right to use this information except to help us provide the Services.

What choices do you have regarding your Personal Information?

We will include unsubscribe instructions in each newsletter or promotional communication you receive from us.

We may send you service-related announcements (such as, but not limited to, notice that we have changed the Services or the Privacy Policy) when we believe it is necessary to do so. You may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature, but if you do not wish to receive these announcements, you have the option to terminate your status as a Nordic Archives newsletter subscriber.

When we delete information that we have collected from or about you, it will be deleted from our active databases, but may remain in our archives.


Links to other Websites

The Services may contain links to other websites that are not owned or controlled by Nordic Archives. This includes links from sponsors and/or partners. The provision of such links does not signify our endorsement of such websites, location or its contents. We have no control over, do not review and are not responsible for the privacy policies of or content displayed on such other websites.

Privacy of Minors

We do not intentionally collect or maintain information from persons under the age of 15. If we determine upon collection that a user is under this age, we will not use or maintain his/her Personal Information without the parent/guardian’s consent. If we become aware that we have unknowingly collected personally identifiable information from a child under the age of 15, we will make reasonable efforts to delete such information from our records.


Security and Confidentiality

Nordic Archives has put in place commercially reasonable and appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. However, no company, including Nordic Archives, can fully eliminate security risks associated with Personal Information.



Because we are an international company, your Personal Information may be stored and processed in any country where we have facilities or in which we engage service providers. By using our Properties, you consent to the transfer of information to countries outside your country of residence, including Norway, which may have different data protection rules than in your country.
Changes in this Privacy Policy
We may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make material changes to this Privacy Policy, we will notify you through one of our Properties or, if you have provided your e-mail address, by e-mail.
