Treatment will be regulated by the general data protection regulation.

Data is person-specific if it can be clearly assigned to a specific natural person. We draw your attention to the fact that Internet-based data transfer has security gaps. Absolute protection against access by third parties is therefore not possible.

Only Bergen Assembly and our suppliers when necessary, will have access to your personal information.

We will use all caution to make sure that our employees and third-parties with access to your information have the right information to make sure they will treat your personal information in accordance to this agreement and our obligations to the privacy policy law. We never sell any information to third-parties.


On the Bergen Assembly website you have the possibility of subscribing to our newsletter as well as to our press mailing list. Both mailings are sent via the service Mailchimp

With our mailings we provide information at regular intervals about the program and the activities of the Bergen Assembly. To be able to receive these mailings you need a valid e-mail address. The e-mail address given by you will be checked to ensure that you are indeed the owner of the given e-mail address, or that its owner has authorized receipt of the mailings. To this end, after sending your newsletter subscription enquiry, you will receive an e-mail at the given address with a request for confirmation. You can cancel the subscription to the newsletter and to the press releases at any time.

In the subscription process you can select the mailing list you would like to be added to («Press» or «Newsletter») and provide us with additional info such as your preferred language or your name.

Information from subscribing to newsletters will be stored in Mailchimp. Here we can see if you have opened our newsletter and if you have clicked any links. This is useful information for us, so we can see what kind of content you find interesting.

Your information will not be used to other purposes than initially intended.


This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies.” Cookies are small text files which are saved on your computer and enable analysis of the use of a website. They are used to anonymously collect and store information on user behavior for the purpose of website optimization. It is not possible to personally identify individual visitors.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

We hereby notify you that this website uses an extension for Google Analytics, “gat._anonymizeIp();,” in order to ensure the anonymized collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). Google will therefore collect your IP address in truncated form only. This ensures anonymization and rules out any direct personal reference.

Due to IP anonymization, Google will truncate your IP address within the European Union Member States as well as contracting parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and truncated by Google servers in the USA. 
On behalf of the website provider, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators, and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. Google will not connect your IP address to any other data held by Google.

The installation of cookies can be prevented by setting your web browser to not accept new cookies, to notify you of new cookies, or to delete all cookies already received. We hereby inform you, however, that you may not be able to take full advantage of all functions of this website in this case.Further, you can prevent Google’s collection and storage of your data (including your IP address) by downloading and installing a browser plugin, available here.

Further information on terms of use and data privacy can be found here or here.


If we are treating personal information about you, you have the right to access your information. The IP-addresses we collect are not connected to a person, and therefore we do not know who this is. The access of personal information by Bergen Assembly is only regarding subscription to our newsletters.

You can ask for a copy of your information. Please contact us at In the case of wrong or incomplete information, or you are not able to correct it, you may ask us to correct the information.
