The Ministry of Local Government and Modernisation is the data controller for the service that shows how political parties in Norway are funded. The data controller determines the purpose of the use of personal data, as well as which tools are to be used.
Statistics Norway (SSB) and the County Governor of Sogn and Fjordane (FMSF) are the data processors for the service. SSB is responsible for data capture and facilitation of the material. FMSF is the website provider. The data processors process personal data on behalf of the data controller.
How do we collect personal data?

The reason that your personal data is processed in connection with party funding may be because:
- You are responsible for reporting on financial circumstances on behalf of a political party.
- You are a donor to a political party, and your donation is in excess of a set value.
