  • To collect the unpaid claims from dissolved and/or solvent employers and/or their bankruptcy estates and in some situations the new employer when a company has been acquired by a public buyer or a private buyer covered by a public guarantee.
  • To ensure that you get paid salary from your employer during the employer’s restructuring when LG, upon being requested, provides loans to the employer to pay salaries.
  • To support an effective, correct and uniform case processing by transferring certain data to a knowledge base database.
  • To support an appropriate, effective and financially sound operation and to administer the scheme by transferring, storing and comparing certain information in a data warehouse and thereby ensure available and specified data about the operation and administration of the scheme.
  • To train our employees and improve the customer experience (if you call us and accept that we can record the conversation).
  • To test our systems in connection with development, optimisation of operations and, if relevant, fixing errors.

We only collect information about you that we need to process your case.

We process your data on the basis of the Danish Act on the Employees’ Guarantee Fund (bekendtgørelse af lov om Lønmodtagernes Garantifond).  

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.

We may pass on information about you to other public authorities such as the Danish Tax Agency, Udbetaling Danmark – Public Benefits Administration or the police that pursuant to the law are entitled to receive the information or which LG works together with.

We can pass on information about you to others who are entitled to receive the information, such as authorities, institutions and relevant private companies (see below).

We pass on the following types of personal data about you:

Common personal data

  • We pass on information about payments, etc. to the Danish Tax Agency.
  • We pass on information about payments and the reason for the payments to your employer.
  • We pass on information about payments to foreign authorities.
  • We pass on information about payments, etc. to curators/bankruptcy estates/estate of a deceased person/restructuring agents.
  • We pass on information about payments and the related calculations to the entity acquiring a company.

Convictions and violations of the law

  • In special cases and in connection with a specific case processing we pass on information about potentially illegal matters and violations of the law to the police.

We store your information while processing the case and delete it 10 years after the bankruptcy estate has been terminated. If the estate is shut down before the payments to employees have been completed, we delete the data 10 years after the final decision/payment was made. The time of deletion is defined based on the latest decision/payment for the whole bankruptcy process. The information is stored after the case has been closed due to rules in the Danish Limitation Act, the Danish Bookkeeping Act and the Danish Archiving Act. 

If you have consented to LG recording a conversation, LG deletes this conversation after two months. 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. There may be conditions or limitations to the rights mentioned above. It is therefore not guaranteed that, for example, you have the right to have your personal data deleted in a specific context - this will depend on the specific circumstances in connection with the data processing. Among other things, this may be due to your personal data being used in a case involving a payment to a third party or for legal compliance reasons.
