    AtB AS (henceforth «AtB») is a mobility company for the public transport in Trøndelag County. AtB is responsible for planning, organizing, purchase and marketing of public transport services. AtB is registered as a limited company and is fully owned by Trøndelag County Authority. 


    This Privacy Policy Agreement explains how AtB collects and processes personal data from their customers and/or users of the public transport (henceforth referred to as “customer”) through use of a t:card. Personal data is defined as any data about an identified or identifiable physical person, in this case the customer, according to article 4 of the data protection regulation. 

    The agreement satisfies the requirements in Norway as of 2018 in accordance to the data protection regulation (GDPR) and industry norm for the processing of personal data in regard to electronic ticketing (henceforth referred to as the “industry norm”). 

    The agreement contains information the customer has a right to review according to articles 12-14 of the data protection regulation, and general information about how AtB treats your personal data. 

    In addition, you will find information about how you can access personal data AtB has collected about you and how you can proceed if you want us to correct or delete your information 


    3.1 Data Controller 

    AtBs CEO has the overall responsibility for the processing of the customers personal data according to the Personal Data Act and is thereby defined as the data controller. AtB will ensure that the customers personal data will be treated following the personal data act and other regulations at any time.  

    3.2 What personal data is AtB processing about customers using a t:card? 

    3.2.1 Unregistered t:card (anonymous journeys) 

    By default, you do not need to give up personal data to be able to travel with AtB. AtB offers anonymous ticketing for those who wish. In this case, AtB will not process personal data about you. You can use the same travel products on an anonymous card as you can on a registered card without extra cost. 

    If you wish to travel anonymously with a t:card, you must follow these steps: 

    • Register a new customer profile on 
    • Choose a username and email that does not identify you (e.g. 
    • Enter only username and email 
    • Order a new t:card on AtBs website (the information will be deleted after a maximum of 30 days) 
    • Register the number of your new t:card in your anonymous profile 
    • Choose a travel product on the website and use a payment card to fulfill the purchase (it is not possible for AtB to identify a customer through such a card transaction 
    • Alternatively, you can come to our service center and pay in cash 

    When ordering a t:card from our homepage, we ask you to enter your name and address in a contact form that we refer to when sending your t:card. Your contact information is stored apart from the card number of your t:card. AtB does not know the number of the t:card sent to you, i.e. it will not be possible to find journey data about you as a customer. You may optionally choose to get your name and birth date printed on your card without affecting your anonymity. The information will only be used in cases where someone visits our service center and asks for a refund of the remaining values on the card. If a name is printed on the card, the customer asking for the refund will be asked for identification. 

    If you wish to travel anonymously, it is crucial to create a new profile. If you choose to use an already existing profile and change it to an anonymous profile, it will be possible to recreate your identity by investigating the logs in our ticketing system. 

    3.2.2 Registered travel cards 

    Travel cards can be registered by creating a profile on our homepage or at our service center. Registration is optional. If you choose to use a registered travel card, AtB needs to request and use some personal data about you.  

    The customer information are contact details you enter in the contact form (name, address, postal code and place, birth date, email address, mobile phone number, username and password), furthermore information about the cards date of issue, purchase date for travel products as well as the card number. The information will be saved in our customer database. 

    If your travel card is to be registered, the aforementioned personal information is provided voluntarily by yourself. The information is saved by AtB as long as necessary to provide the service, or as long the customer relationship exists, as stated in point (e) of article 5 (1) of the data protection regulation. 

    AtB only saves contact details provided by yourself. You can request to end your customer relationship and ask us to delete the information you have registered. You can easily do this by contacting our customer service by phone, mail, email or by visiting us and ask for help to delete your information. AtB will then delete all your personal data that we have saved. 

    In addition to the contact details mentioned above, AtB logs information about the journeys of our customers, so called «journey data». This includes information about: 

    • Starting point of the journey 
    • Number of zones for the journey 
    • Timestamp when the card is read (ticket validation) 
    • Ticket type in use 
    • Travel card number 
    • Line and route used for the journey 

    These journey data are compiled in a specific database and are connected to a travel card. If the travel card is registered to a person, these journey data will also be personal data. 

    If a user profile is created on AtBs homepage,, several travel cards can be connected to the same profile. If names are connected to these cards, the only person that can obtain journey data is the person the specific card is registered to. The person registered to the user profile can only access information about the purchase of different travel products, purchase history etc. This applies to customers being 15 years or older, in which case the customer must give permission for others to access journey data on their own travel card. For customers under the age of 15, parents can grant this permission. 

    Journey data for a travel card are saved 104 days, in accordance to the industry norm for the processing of personal data in regard to electronic ticketing. After this, the journey data will be transferred to an archive and it will be impossible to trace the journey data to a travel card. The journey data will be anonymized, so that no person can be identified, but it will be possible to create statistics based on the information so that AtB can expand their travel services where needed. 

    3.3 Purpose of processing personal data 

    AtBs overall purpose with the processing of different personal data connected to the use of registered t:cards, is to be able to provide good and effective travel card services to our customers when providing public transport services. 

    This purpose consists mainly of the following: 

    • Send t:cards ordered by the customer, optionally with printed name and birth date 
    • Issue different travel products on the card 
    • Transfer remaining value to a new travel card in case your card is lost or stolen (optionally the remaining value can be reimbursed) 
    • Ensure easier identification of possible errors in case of a complaint or other issues that may occur when using the travel card. 

    Information about travel routes will be used for analysis related to statistical purposes, as well as for reporting to Trøndelag County who evaluate budgets, capacity and future transport demands on different routes.  

    3.4 Treatment basis 

    AtBs treatment of personal data is based upon the customers registration of a travel card. The customer enters an agreement with AtB when buying a travel product. AtB will save these data for as long as the customer maintains a customer profile with a registered travel card. The customer can then buy a new travel card product at any time. The basis of agreement is pursuant point (b) of Article 6 (1) of the personal data regulation, providing treatment when treatment is necessary to fulfill an agreement the registered person is a part of, or to implement actions on behalf of the registered person prior to entering an agreement. 

    Treatment for statistical purposes is pursuant point (e) of Article 6 (1) of the personal data regulation and § 8 of the Norwegian Personal Data Act, since it is necessary for statistical purposes in the interest of the public. 

    3.5 Information security and secure saving of personal data 

    AtB follows the requirements for information security in chapter 2 of the personal data regulation and the regulations of the industry norm. Access to customer data and journey data is therefore limited. 

    AtB can use journey data together with customer data when it is initiated by yourself. This can occur in case of a complaint on the travel guarantee, complaints on fines or other inquiries on your behalf. 

    AtB will not use journey data together with customer data to create statistics, when charging business partners and usually not when troubleshooting. 

    3.6 Deletion of personal data 

    If the customer uses a registered travel card, information about name, address, email address, phone number, birth date and mobile phone number can be deleted upon customer request. This can be done by contacting customer service by phone, mail, email or by visiting the service center. 

    All registered journey data will be anonymized or deleted after a certain amount of time, according to the regulations from the Data Protection Authority and following the aforementioned industry norm. 

    3.7 Approach to access requests, correction or deletion
