Purpose and legal basis for the processing of personal data:

According to the “Order on non-commercial sailing and other traffic on Gudenåen” all motorised vessels operating on the river Gudenå must be registered. Everyone can obtain a guest permit, but to obtain a permanent permit for your motorized vessel you must be a resident, own a summer cottage or rent a mooring place in one of the municipalities Hedensted, Horsens, Skanderborg. Silkeborg, Favrskov, Viborg or Randers.

To check whether you are eligible for a permanent permit the municipalities need information (= data) about you and your vessel.

Your application for a permanent permit for a motorized vessel will be processed by the municipality where you are resident, own a summer home or have a rented mooring place. Exempted are applicants from Horsens and Hedensted municipalities as applications from residents from these municipalities are processed by Skanderborg municipality.
