How LG processes your personal data

Read more and self-services

When you are in contact with LG about salary etc., LG processes information about you as part of the case processing. This information is also called personal data.

LG processes claims, which deal with:

  • Pay for work performed
  • Salary during a period of notice
  • Claim processing costs and interest etc.
  • Pension
  • Holiday pay
  • Allowance
  • Outstanding holiday pay for the transition year
  • Any other potential salary claims

In the following, you can read more about what data LG processes, how LG process the data and your rights in that connection.

If you contact LG about salary etc. without having a case, your enquiry will be registered, including, e.g. your name, civil registration number and contact information.

If you or your trade union later apply/applies for or receive/receives a benefit from LG, you will be further informed about what data is included in the processing of your case.

If an employer has gone bankrupt, ceased operations or become insolvent or if the employer is dead or insolvent or undergoing restructuring, then the purpose of LG’s processing is to decide whether LG can pay salaries, etc. and if LG can subsequently claim the amount from the employer’s bankruptcy estate or collect unpaid amounts from the employer. 

If the employer has not paid the outstanding holiday pay for the transition year to Lønmodtagernes Feriemidler on time, LG will assume the claims from Lønmodtagernes Feriemidler with information on the employer and the employees whom the holiday funds are associated with. The purpose of LG’s processing is to collect the amounts owed from the employer. 

LG only processes the information needed for the case processing. 

For example, LG processes data about:

  • The identity of employees and employers
  • Financial matters and employment
  • Past and present employers
  • Outstanding holiday pay for the transition year
  • Trade union/unemployment insurance fund membership
  • Health
  • Cohabitation
  • Parental leave and leave

The data can also come from your employer, your notification to LG, the trustee who handles the bankrupt estate or the restructuring agent managing the restructuring , from your trade union or from public authorities, such as the Tax Administration, the central national register and ATP.

LG processes your personal data in accordance with the Danish Employees’ Guarantee Fund Act.

LG can obtain and coordinate data for case processing and for checking payments etc. This can be done with the help of Udbetaling Danmark – Public Benefits Administration on the basis of special provisions in the Danish Udbetaling Danmark Act and established guidelines, including those for erasure of data.

LG may disclose data about you to other public authorities such as the Tax Administration, Udbetaling Danmark – Public Benefits Administration, FerieKonto, ATP, trustee, restructuring agent, lawyer, trade union, pension companies or financial institutions that are required by law to obtain the data.

LG saves your information while processing the case and deletes it 10 years after the bankruptcy estate has been terminated. If the estate is terminated before LG concludes its case processing, LG will delete the information 10 years after the last day in which the final case was processed by the estate. In special cases, such as lawsuits, LG may store your information for a longer period. The data is stored on the basis of documentation requirements as stipulated in e.g. the Danish Accounting Act and the Danish Access to Public Administration Files Act. 

If you call LG, you may be asked if LG can record the call. The recordings are used solely for training of staff and improving the customer experience. The conversation is deleted after two months, but you can always have the conversation deleted earlier by contacting LG.

You may object to LG’s keeping personal data about you.

You can receive a copy of the data, which LG keeps about you.

You may also request:

  • to have your personal data rectified or erased
  • to have the data sent to you or someone else
  • to have LG suspend the processing of your data

Finally, you may object to LG making automated decisions.

If you ask to have your personal data erased, LG may not be able to comply with your request. This may, for example, be due to the fact that your personal data is involved in a case regarding disbursement to a third party or a statutory requirement.
