Privacy Policy

1. What is Norwegian Reward?

Norwegian Reward is a loyalty programme offered by Norwegian Air Shuttle ASA ("Norwegian"). By signing up as a Member of Norwegian Reward you may accrue CashPoints and earn special Rewards by buying tickets from Norwegian or products and services from any of Norwegian Reward's partners ("Partners"). CashPoints earned can be used by Norwegian Reward Members to purchase flight tickets or other related products or services from Norwegian.

For your ease of reference, here is a short explanation of the main features of Norwegian Reward:

  • CashPoints: Our digital currency which Members can earn and use by buying tickets and other products and services from Norwegian or other Partners of Norwegian Reward.
  • Rewards: Benefits, such as free checked baggage, which Members can earn by being a loyal customer of Norwegian.
  • Reward Partner: Other companies that, through an agreement, can offer Norwegian Reward Members an opportunity to earn CashPoints and benefit from special offers. As a Member of Norwegian Reward, you must identify yourself as such when you make purchases with our Reward Partners in order to earn CashPoints.
  • Reward Number: As a Reward Member you will be awarded a Reward Number which is used to connect you with the purchases you have made with Norwegian or any of our Partners.
  • Family Account: This is a solution that enables Members to collectively earn and use CashPoints in one account.

More information can be found in the Terms and Conditions for Norwegian Reward.

When you become a Member of Norwegian Reward, you will be able to log in to your own account on our website and keep track of your registered flights and CashPoints earned. As a Member you will receive status updates and Member offers. Please know that you as a Member can administrate the communication settings on your Reward profile. Our Reward programme has a long list of Partners which will enable you to earn CashPoints not only when you buy flight tickets with Norwegian, but also when you shop online, book a hotel or make other purchases.

Please note that membership in the Norwegian Reward programme is voluntary. You may purchase airline tickets and other products and services from Norwegian or buy products or services from our Partners without a Norwegian Reward membership, but you will not be able to earn CashPoints or be eligible for Rewards.

2. General statement of applicability of this Privacy Policy

3.3 Establishing a Family Account in Norwegian Reward

Norwegian Reward allows the Members to create or join a Family Account. The Family Account enables Members to earn and use CashPoints collectively. By creating a Family Account, you will be designated as the administrator of the account (Captain) and you will be asked to provide information about other Members of the account, such as an email address, Reward Number and your relationship to them. If you invite persons under the age of 16, you will be asked to create an account for them which will be managed by you.

The legal basis for the processing of your data as described in this section is the Terms and Conditions for Norwegian Reward.

3.4 Managing your Norwegian Reward account

The basic feature of Norwegian Reward is to allow its Members to earn CashPoints and gain Rewards by purchasing airline tickets from Norwegian or products or services from one of the Norwegian Reward Partners. The Norwegian Reward membership will provide you with a personalised user account on our website, which you can access via your computer or other devices. When you make purchases with Norwegian, Norwegian Reward will retain information regarding your flight, such as destination and price, in order to accrue the relevant amount of CashPoints in your membership account. If you purchase products from one of our Partners, the Partner will send information about those purchases to Norwegian Reward, such as your Reward Number, your name, date of the transaction and either CashPoints to accrue (if the Partner calculates the CashPoints to accrue) or the transaction value (if Norwegian Reward calculates the CashPoints to accrue).

When you spend CashPoints, Norwegian Reward will process information such as your Reward Number, CashPoints to spend, flight number and dates of travel.

Norwegian Reward Members are also able to qualify for Rewards, including Limited Edition Rewards, e.g. following the purchase of a fixed number of flights or earning a fixed amount of CashPoints. For this purpose, Norwegian Reward will use your Reward Number and provide you with unique information in the logged-in environment of our website.

Norwegian Reward will continuously strive to make general improvements to the loyalty programme, which entails, for example, segmenting our Members into groups and/or tailoring news and offers to Members. For this purpose, Norwegian Reward will process the personal data about you mentioned above. In addition, Norwegian Reward will send you a monthly email to inform you about the status of your membership, including details about CashPoint earnings, number of flights and other relevant Member data. This monthly update is a mandatory part of the membership.

If you delete your account in accordance with the Terms and Conditions, your personal data will be deleted accordingly, except transactions, including any corresponding data, linked to your CashPoint balance. This will also include your name and Reward Number. Such data will be retained for 5 years, counting from the date the transactions were processed by our system. We store this data in pursuance of our legal obligations. Data regarding the use of Limited Edition Rewards will be deleted after 14 months. Please also refer to the section "Your rights" below for additional information on your right to have your data deleted.

The legal basis for processing your personal data as described in this section is your acceptance of the terms under which you purchase products from Norwegian or any of Norwegian Reward's Partners in addition to your acceptance of the Terms and Conditions for Norwegian Reward.

Such information about commercial benefits may include information on special flight offers, commercial news from Norwegian Reward and tips for earning extra CashPoints. It could also relate to including you in a Member segment and providing you with commercial offers accordingly, providing you with information on other special or seasonal offers, and inviting you to join our activities such as our digital advent calendar at Christmastime.

For this purpose, Norwegian Reward will use data such as your name, Reward Number and email address. If Norwegian Reward employs any subcontractors for processing your personal data for this purpose, e.g. Facebook, Oracle or Google, appropriate safeguards such as Binding Corporate Rules, EU standard model contract, the EU-US Privacy Shield or similar will ensure an adequate level of protection of your personal data. Please be advised that such subcontractors are responsible for their own privacy policies.

Personal data processed for marketing purposes will be deleted after 12 months. If you delete your profile and thereby end your membership in Norwegian Reward, this data will be anonymised.

Please note that withdrawal of any consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing that has taken place based on a consent given prior to the withdrawal.

Norwegian Reward aims to make the loyalty programme more individualised and promote user friendliness for our Members. To promote general improvements in our email service and personalisation of email content, we analyse responses and traffic from our email communications, such as open and click rates. For this purpose, it is necessary to process your personal data such as your name, email address and Reward Number. We also use your personal data through webpage click data, which means that we use some of your personal data when you browse our site to enhance its performance, improve your user experience and to enable us to detect and prevent fraudulent behaviour.
