You have the right to access the information we have registered about you at any time. You also have the right to have incorrect or changed information corrected and to request that the information be deleted.

6. Personal data in

In our portal,, we have little personal data. Most people are not logged in when using the system. For those users who are registered as personal users, we also store a very limited amount of data:

  • Username
  • Password
  • Full name

If access exceeds the standards in VAR, modules to which access has been granted are defined.

In the case of user deletion, a deletion will remove all traces of the user that the system has generated.

There are two possibilities to delete user information:

a) The system sends out confirmation requests by e-mail to the registered user's e-mail address once a year. This is done to verify that the user is still active. If such confirmation is not received, the user is automatically deleted in the system.

b) Customer service in VAR can delete individual users either at the request of the user or on their own initiative.

The data we store in is only used for login and access control. Nor is any data stored about the individual's use of the system.
