  • Training our employees and improving the customer experience when you call us and confirm that we may record the conversation

We only obtain and process the data necessary for our case handling. The data processed by FerieKonto and Feriepengeinfo include:

Sensitive personal data

Criminal sentences and legal violations

  • We receive information from your employer regarding criminal sentencing that is related to cases of withholding or offsetting holiday allowance.

FerieKonto and Feriepengeinfo process your personal data on the basis of the Danish Holiday Act, the Danish Executive Order on holiday and the executive orders that are warranted by it. 

As part of the case handling, it may be necessary to disclose your personal data to, for example, recognized unemployment insurance funds, municipalities and central government authorities including Arbejdsmarkedets Feriefond, which are legally permitted to obtain personal data.

We can pass on your personal data to others who are legally permitted to obtain the data. This includes authorities, institutions and relevant private corporations.

We pass on the following personal data:

Ordinary personal data:

  • We pass on information to municipalities and unemployment insurance funds (a-kasser) regarding the disbursement of holiday allowance for the purpose of control
  • We pass on information to your employer regarding your application for holiday allowance
  • We pass on information to Arbejdsmarkedets Feriefond/private holiday funds regarding your undisbursed holiday allowance
  • We pass on information to the Danish Debt Collection Agency regarding debt in cases of wrongfully disbursed holiday allowance

  • We pass on your case to Rigsarkivet in certain situations.

We keep your data for the duration of the processing of your case and delete it after 6 years. We keep the data after we have processed your case because of rules in the Danish Holiday Act and the Bookkeeping Act.

When you contact FerieKonto and Feriepengeinfo by phone, you might be asked for permission to record the conversation. The conversation will only be recorded if you give us your permission to do so. All recorded conversations will be deleted after two months. You can always contact FerieKonto and Feriepengeinfo, if you wish to have the recording deleted sooner. 

We may make decisions that are solely based on automatic case processing. We make automatic decisions by gathering information from you that is compared to information provided by your employer regarding your accrued holiday allowance. Collectively, this determines whether or not you are entitled to the disbursement of holiday allowance. 

You can obtain a copy of the data that we use to handle your case (insight).

You can file a complaint regarding our treatment of your personal data (right to object).

You can also request the following:

  • to have your personal data rectified or erased
  • to have the data sent to you or another party
  • FerieKonto/Feriepengeinfo to suspend the processing of your case.

Finally, you can object to FerieKonto or Feriepengeinfo making automated decisions.

If you request to have your personal data erased, we cannot guarantee that we can accommodate your request.

There may be conditions or limitations regarding the rights mentioned above. You can therefore not be certain that it is your right to have your personal data deleted in certain situations. This depends on the conditions of the data processing in question. This may be because personal data are part of a case regarding disbursement made to a third party or the compliance of a legal claim.
