OUR PROCESSING AND USE OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA
We collect personal data about you
Energinet processes the following categories of personal data:
- Ordinary personal data in the form of photos and films
We strive to ensure that all personal data processed by us is accurate and up-to-date.
Disclosure of personal data
Energinet may use photos and films in connection with recruitment, when working with journalistic media, educational institutions, business partners and on social media.
Your personal data may become subject to a right of access under the Danish Public Administration Act.
PURPOSE AND LEGAL BASIS
Energinet processes your personal data for the following purposes:
- Storing and sharing photos and films on social media
- Storing and sharing photos and films on Energinet’s intranet (InSite)
- Storing and sharing photos and films in connection with the branding of Energinet
Energinet uses the photo(s) and film recording(s) in electronic and printed media and in other productions co-produced by Energinet. In addition, the photos/films may be used by other media when reporting on Energinet. In such cases, the media in question must comply with the rules on the use of personal data.
Energinet will only process your personal data to the extent necessary for your relationship with us or where necessary according to applicable law.
Legal basis for our processing of personal data:
Our legal basis for processing your personal data is section 6, subsection 1 of the Danish Data Protection Act, cf. section 6, subsection 1, paragraph e of the General Data Protection Regulation, when the processing of photos and film is considered necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in Energinet.
Our legal basis for processing your personal data is section 6, subsection 1 of the Danish Data Protection Act, cf. section 6, subsection 1, paragraph a of the General Data Protection Regulation, when the processing is not covered by paragraph e, and a declaration of consent has been signed in connection with photography/filming.
Once a year, Energinet reviews photos and films that are more than five years old to assess whether they are still needed. If the photos/films are not found to be needed, they will be erased.
When we have received your request for access to the personal data we hold about you, we will investigate whether it is possible to honour your request. We will respond to your enquiry as soon as possible and no later than one month after we have received your enquiry.
- Right of access
You have the right to obtain access to the personal data we process about you.
- Right to rectification
If you believe that the personal data we process about you is inaccurate, you have the right to have the data rectified. You must contact us and inform us of the nature of the inaccuracies and what data you want us to rectify.
- Right to erasure or ‘the right to be forgotten’
We erase personal data when it is no longer necessary to store the data. In special cases, you have the right to have specific personal data about you erased before the time of our ordinary erasure. If you believe that your data is no longer necessary for the purpose for which we collected it, you can request to have your data erased.
- Right to restriction of processing
If you contest the accuracy of the data we hold or otherwise process about you, you may request that we restrict the processing of the data until we have been able to establish whether the data is correct. You may also request that we restrict the processing rather than erase the data if you believe that our processing of the data is unlawful, or if you believe that we no longer need the data, or if you believe that your legitimate interests take precedence over Energinet’s legitimate interests as Data Controller.

In some cases, you have the right to receive your personal data and to request that the personal data be transmitted from one data controller to another.

You have the right to object to our processing of personal data about you. If your objection is justified, we will no longer process the data.
