When Danske Olieberedskabslagre (“FDO”) is in contact with business partners, suppliers, companies with a compulsory stockholding obligation (“CSO”) and/or job candidates in recruitment processes, FDO collects and processes personal data in the role as data controller. This personal data policy provides some information which we are required by law to give about our processing of personal data.

We process personal data for the following purposes:

  • to send newsletters;

  • to review job applications, assess applicants’ professional and personal qualifications and skills in connection with recruitment.


We collect and process the following types of personal data:

Categories of personal data

Legal basis for collection

Category 1:

Name and email address.

The processing is based on consent, cf. article 6(1)(a) of the General Data Protection Regulation.

Category 2:
Contact persons of business partners, suppliers, CSO companies and other contact persons


Name, position, employer, employer’s address, phone numbers, e-mail address.

The processing is based on FDO’s legitimate interests in communicating with suppliers, business partners, CSO companies and other contact persons, cf. article 6(1)(f) of the General Data Protection Regulation.

Category 3:

Job applicants

Information in job applications (e.g. CPR number*) and CVs as well as any references, grade transcripts, including name, address, email address, telephone number, photo, date of birth, civil status, previous employment, education and training, age, gender, children, LinkedIn profile, identification details of reference persons, etc.

The processing is based on FDO’s legitimate interests in selecting the proper job candidates, cf. article 6(1)(f) of the General Data Protection Regulation.


Sometimes, FDO also processes personal data relating to a job applicant’s references. Such processing will always be subject to the job applicant’s consent, cf. article 6(1)(a) of the General Data Protection Regulation.


*FDO is not requesting CPR number. If a CPR number is included in a document, FDO will delete it as soon as possible.



If you are among the persons whose personal data FDO processes, and you have consented to such processing, you have a right to withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, the withdrawal will, however, not affect any processing made before the withdrawal.

When we collect personal data directly from you, you provide the personal data voluntarily.


If you do not provide personal data when applying for a job with FDO, we will not be able to assess you for the purpose of potentially entering into an employment contract with you. If you do not inform us of your email and name when you subscribe to FDO’s newsletters, we will not be able to send any newsletters to you.


2. Sources

The personal data are collected directly from you. There may be situations where we for example collect your contact details from your employer. In relation to references, personal data are obtained from external parties such as previous employers.


3. Disclosure of personal data

FDO does not disclose any personal data about you in the recruitment process, but personal data may be transferred if we receive assistance from a recruitment agency.


4. Transfer of personal data to data processors

We use data processors to host personal data and to provide IT support to FDO.


5. Transfer of personal data to recipients in countries outside the EU/EEA

We do not transfer personal data to recipients in countries outside the EU/EEA.


6. Storage period

We store the personal data for as long as it is necessary to fulfil the above purposes.


As a general rule, personal data required for the distribution of newsletters are stored until you unsubscribe from such newsletters.


Generally, personal data received in connection with job applications are stored six months from the receipt of an unsolicited job application or from the date of the rejection of an application for a specific job.


7. Your rights

Subject to the restrictions under the applicable personal data legislation, you have the following rights:

  • The right of access to personal data
  • The right to have inaccurate personal data rectified
  • The right to have personal data erased
  • The right to restriction of processing of personal data
  • The right to data portability
  • The right to object to the processing of the personal data


You also have a right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority, including the Danish Data Protection Agency.


The right to object


You have the right to object – on grounds relating to your particular situation – to processing of personal data where the legal basis for our processing is legitimate interests, as stated above. FDO must then no longer process the personal data unless FDO demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.


You have the right to object if your personal data are used for direct marketing purposes, including profiling. If you exercise your right to object, we will stop using your personal data for that purpose.



8. Contact

Please contact us if you have any questions about the processing of your personal data or how to exercise your rights.
