Video playback uses the video player services Vimeo and YouTube on its pages. Both services collect data when you play a video. The data is used, among other things, to see how many people watch and how long a video is watched.

Live broadcast
At many of our events we have livebroadcasting/streaming. When you use the player, it collects traffic data which, among other things, shows how many and how long you watch the live broadcast. Google and Vimeo are data processors.

If you wish to subscribe to our newsletter, you must enter your e-mail address. Your email address is not shared with other businesses and is deleted when we are notified that you no longer wish to receive information from us. The information is also deleted if we receive feedback that the e-mail address is no longer active. Mailchimp is the data processor for the newsletter. In connection with sending out newsletters, we keep statistics on usage, how many people read and what is read. This allows us to be able to give our readers the most relevant news items possible. SumoMe is used to manage the display of the form/pop-up used to register as a subscriber to our newsletter.

Registration for courses and events
When you register for courses and events, we ask you to register your name, e-mail, telephone number, organization, organization number, position and invoice reference. Following participation, you will be able to receive a survey. The surveys are used to map user effects and obtain learning for upcoming courses and events. DOGA uses Questback to carry out the surveys. The personal information is not shared with others and is deleted after the event.
