As an important part of the work to create a user-friendly website, we look at the user pattern of those who visit the site. To analyse the information, we use the analysis tool Plausible.

Camera surveillance

Hafslund uses camera surveillance at power stations and power plants. We do this to secure facilities, systems or anything else that is or may become of significant importance for the operation and restoration of extraordinary situations against undesirable incidents and actions (including access for unauthorized persons). This means that in some cases, camera surveillance can capture civilians who are out in forests, fields and mountains near our power stations. We carry out camera surveillance on the basis of processing in Article 6 no. 1. (c) of the General Data Protection Regulation, pursuant to § 5-1 of the Norwegian regulation on security and emergency preparedness in the power supply system.

We carry out camera surveillance in accordance with regulations over camera surveillance in business, which means that we normally only store recordings for 7 days. Exceptionally, we store for 30 days if needed.


Hafslund processes personal data about many landowners. Information processed is mainly name, address, telephone, farm and use number, owner, account information, and social security number. Social security numbers are used for registration when Hafslund is to carry out one-off redemptions.

The processing is carried out in accordance with landowner agreements we have with the individual landowners with a basis for processing in Article 6 (1) (b) of the General Data Protection Regulation.

Communication – Use of social media

Hafslund uses Facebook and LinkedIn as platforms for two-way communication with our followers. We do this to get in touch with people and spread the word about Hafslund, in addition to making the business attractive to potential new applicants.

Information used on the Platforms is not used for any purpose other than communicating with followers and providing information about our products and services. We do this on the basis of a legitimate interest as a basis for processing in Article 6 (1) (f) of the General Data Protection Regulation.
