Important aspects of passwords and personal codes
All passwords and personal codes are personal and must never be revealed, either to the bank, the authorities, family or others. Avoid having your password written down and be careful how you store your code device, so that no one but you can use your online bank. Contact the bank immediately if you suspect irregularities. Before you log in to the online bank, you should ensure that you come to the log in page safely.
Specific to investment services
Storage and use of electronic communication associated with the provision of investment services for KLP Kapitalforvaltning AS (KLP KF) - new regulations on sound-recording and storage of documentation, effective from 1 April 2011.
In accordance with Section 10-17 of the Norwegian Securities Trading Act and the Norwegian Securities Regulations Sections 10-31 and 10-32
KLP Kapitalforvaltning is required to carry out sound-recording in connection with providing investment services, to store sound-recordings and other types of documentation in connection with such services, as well as to retain such information for 3 years.
Provision of investment services and conclusion of contract
KLP KF will carry out sound-recording of all communication associated with the provision of investment services and contract conclusion in financial instruments, as well as indication of the same, made by telephone. KLP KF is not able to provide investment services that are arranged via channels that are not connected to recording media (this includes mobile telephones). Sound-recordings, and other documentation submitted otherwise, will be stored by KLP KF.
Sound-recordings are to be stored for a statutory period calculated from the date of recording and will normally be deleted after the expiry of the statutory storage period. Sound-recordings for the individual customer will be retrievable by searching inter alia by the time/date of the conversation, the telephone number called and the KLP KF employee who received the order. KLP KF may be compelled to hand over sound-recordings to the authorities and others who can require this in accordance with the law.
KLP KF will not be obliged to execute orders or enter into agreements that it believes may involve breach of legislation.
Designated electronic communication channels
The following electronic communication channels are currently permitted for the provision of investment services:
- Personal telephones where the communication goes via a fixed number in the Group's telephone exchange.
- Personal e-mail accounts at KLP or Bloomberg
- Chat at Bloomberg and Reuters
This means that for example communication via Office Communicator, direct to mobile telephones, MSN, SMS/MMS messages and video conferences cannot be used for communication between customer and staff at KLP KF.
The new regulations from the authorities do not result in other changes in the relevant agreements, including the requirement that mandates and management instructions are to be communicated in writing.
Storage of communications
All communications on designated communication channels are to be saved and stored in accordance with the regulations. Deletion of stored information is not to be carried out within the statutory storage period.
