The booker/guest/recipient of news e-mails, recipient of text messages and other market activity, will at any time be able to request the deletion of all information that is saved and which Visit Narvik is not obliged to retain under any other law or regulation.
The booker/guest will, unless the data has been required to be deleted, receive a newsletter from Visit Narvik or from one of the marketing names, and recipients may upon receipt of this immediately request that all information that Visit Narvik has saved shall be deleted at no charge.
By ordering accommodation, purchase of tickets or similar, this is considered as entering into an agreement with Visit Narvik and Visit Narvik is then required to register personal information. The booker agrees, at the time of the order, that Visit Narvik as Personal Data Manager, can use the information provided to implement Visit Narvik ‘s obligations in relation to the booker.

Sending e-mail/text messages only involves the use of e-mail and/or telephone number, not any other personal information. It will be apparent from the e-mail where we have got the e-mail address from and that it is not used for purposes other than e-mailings. The content of the e-mail explains how the recipient can easily state that he/she does not wish to receive e-mails anymore and the booker can also request that all information about the booker that is registered shall be deleted.
