The Norwegian Public Roads Administration has a number of electronic registers and systems that contain personal data. Examples include:
- Our Customer Register contains information about all our users. Official data about a user are retrieved and updated on a daily basis from the National Registry and the Central Coordinating Register for Legal Entities.
- MIME360 is the NPRA’s case management and filing system. The system is to ensure that cases are processed correctly, in accordance with rules and regulations.
- The Central Register of Motor Vehicles is a national register of the vehicle fleet in Norway. In addition, it is a professional system for the processing of applications about vehicle approval. The system also has a digital solution for the registration of vehicles through vehicle dealers.
- The Driving Licence Register is a national register of driving entitlements and other licences and certificates of competence related to the driving of vehicles.
- Road toll systems are used for the automatic identification of vehicles passing toll collection points, and for the determination of toll rates, discounts and exemptions for each passage, and the collection of road tolls.
- Our Traffic Control Centres’ systems consist of a system for logging incidents on the road, cameras along the road and in tunnels for traffic monitoring, and a telephone system for receiving messages about incidents on the road.
- Accident Analysis systems analyse information about road traffic accidents in order to reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured in traffic.
- Our Land Acquisition system is a system that stores information about the acquisition of property for the purpose of building roads.
- KRIMREG is a system for receiving and processing tips and information about anti-social and criminal activity within the NPRA’s field of responsibility, especially related to road users and vehicles and the management of contracts in which the NPRA is the roads authority and the construction client.
From where do we collect personal data?
The NPRA collects personal data about you in connection with applications and other enquiries. The NPRA also collects personal data from a number of other sources. Examples include other government agencies, such as the Norwegian Tax Administration, the police, the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration, and Norwegian Customs.
Moreover, the NPRA collects personal data from contractors and consultants with whom the NPRA have entered agreements, from private individuals who have tipped us off regarding illegal affairs or incidents on the road etc., and from publicly available sources (e.g. websites, social media, observations). Furthermore, the NPRA may also collect personal data from foreign authorities in accordance with international legislation or agreements.
Who will receive your personal data?
The NPRA may disclose your personal data when we have a legal basis to do so. This includes disclosure to data processors and joint data controllers, to other government agencies (such as the police, emergency services, Labour and Welfare Administration, the Accident Investigation Board Norway, Statistics Norway), to foreign authorities in accordance with international legislation or agreements and where disclosure is authorised under the Freedom of Information Act and the Public Administration Act etc.
The NPRA also publicises personal data, e.g. in the Operator’s Licence Register.
For how long do we store your personal data?
The NPRA processes your personal data for as long as required. How long this is depends on the type of processing involved. The NPRA also has a record-keeping obligation under the Archives Act. The NPRA thus usually has to store data also after the case processing is completed.
