Telephone System Customer Register

The Entrepreneur Fund is processing your data based on the Unemployment Security Act and on the Unemployment Fund Act. The Entrepreneur Fund may further process your personal data based on other mandatory legislation. The Entrepreneur Fund also has legitimate interests in relation to its operations, such as operational development and resolving possible cases of malpractice, based on which your personal data may be processed as well.

Your data will be primarily used for securing service transactions when processing benefits matters. Data may also be processed for personnel training purposes for the purpose of improving the quality of customer service offered.

The Entrepreneur Fund is recording incoming telephone calls. Calls are automatically recorded. Recordings cover information disclosed by customers, and in the case of background support calls, data disclosed by service consultants, such as:

  • Time of call
  • Duration of call
  • Call administrator’s ID
  • Name
  • Membership number
  • Personal identity code
  • Address
  • Telephone number
  • Housing
  • Family
  • Tax information
  • Income information
  • Tax withholding information
  • Benefits information
  • Membership fee invoicing information

Data is supplied by customers to us or by our service consultants per telephone.

Entitlement of fund employees to process personal data of fund members is based on access  policy according to job description.

The Entrepreneur Fund is using a call-back service, via which telephone numbers and time of calls are transmitted to the fund. Such data will be deleted immediately after call-back has taken place.

No regular disclosure of data takes place. However, we may disclose members’ personal data to public authorities. Such disclosure is based on law or data protection obligations. The Entrepreneur Fund may also disclose your personal data based on order issued by a court of law or equivalent.

No data is disclosed to recipients outside the EU or the European Economic Area.

Telephone call recordings will mainly be stored for two (2) years and for a reasonable time thereafter. Telephone call recording was introduced in September 2020.


Data security and personal data protection are always systematically observed by the Entrepreneur Fund whenever data is used and processed. The Entrepreneur Fund is processing all personal data in a data-secure manner and as prescribed by current legislation.

Only persons authorised by the controller can access the register. Access to data, software and systems has, by way of technical means (access, user ID, password), been limited to include only individuals, whose work tasks comprise unemployment fund duties. Access to premises, where confidential information is being processed or stored has been granted only only to persons who need to have access in order to be able to carry out their work tasks. Front doors to production premises are covered by a monitoring system. Employee oversight is implemented via an access control system. Register users are subject to non-disclosure agreements and are therefor not allowed to disclose any data they are processing.

When registered, you have several options for affecting how your personal data is being processed. We will answer your requests as soon as possible, latest within one month. Should we need more time, we will contact you within one month. In matters relating to use of your personal data, please contact the person mentioned in paragraph 2 of this statement.
