If any of the information about you is incorrect or missing, you can ask for it to be corrected. You must write a letter where you explain why the information is incorrect, and send it to the above address.
You can also ask for advice and guidance from The Norwegian Data Protection Agency (external website), which has a supervisory responsibility. The Data Protection Agency can check for you if the information about you in VIS is correct and has been used correctly.
