The e-mail is only used when you have voluntarily given us your consent by submitting your e-mail in the app. You can also choose to subscribe to our newsletters. You have the opportunity at all times to unsubscribe from the newsletters by following the unsubscribe link in the newsletter.

Technical information

This information is necessary for the solution to work on the given platform/device and is logged to ensure that the app is working properly. This also gives us necessary information to solve problems if an error occurs.

Purpose 
Processing of personal information is necessary for purchase of the Oslo Pass. Oslo Pass app sells and gives access to the Oslo Pass, which gives you free entrance to about 30 museums, free public transportation, free entrance to public swimming pools, discounts on sightseeing and other special offers on restaurants, shops and leisure venues.

Access 
Employees in VisitOSLO (Oslo Pass team) and WTW have only access to masked credit card details and app ID. DIBS AS has access to all card details.
