Montessori Norge collects and uses personal information about staff, members, course and congress participants and other individuals that come into contact with our organization.

The GDPR gives individuals the right to know what we collect and why, what we do with the information, what we won’t do and what rights you have.

If you participate at the 7th Nordic Montessori Conference, we will collect your name, email, the name of the organization you are associated with, any dietary or other needs and billing information. We need this information to plan and manage the conference.

Who do we share this information with?
We will never sell or share your personal information with third parties to use for their own purpose.

The information you have given us to participate at the conference may be shared with the hotel and reception and dinner venue (to comply with any dietary needs or other). Information that we are required by law to store for bookkeeping purposes, will be stored for as long as the law requires.

What about cookies and locally stored data?
When you visit our website different types of data are stored locally on your unit via your browser. This data could e.g. include user settings, information about how you surfed our website, which browser you used, and which ads that were shown. This type of “locally stored data" could be used to customize content and functions of services for you, thereby contributing to a better and more meaningful visit. Cookies do not contain directly identifiable data about you (such as name, address, telephone number, etc.), instead, the information regards your browser and the activity through it.

We use locally stored data to:

  • Deliver and customize our services to the unit and browser you use
  • Give you relevant and customized content
  • Measure and analyze traffic on the pages

Both Montessori Norge and our subcontractors (e.g. Idium AS as supplier of this website) store data locally on your unit. Eventual subcontractors are subject to the data processing agreement and can not use data for anything other than delivering the service we have ordered from them. For more information on how Idium AS treats personal data, you can visit their webpage (in Norwegian).

If you want to know what information we have stored about you, or request that we delete your information, you can email us at
