What opting out entails?
Opting out will apply to
• individual decisions
• prior notification under the Public Administration Act § 16
• other messages that are important to your legal position or for case processing, and
• notifications which for other reasons it is particularly important to ensure that you receive.
Put simply, this means that if you opt out, letters containing information that is important to you will only be sent to you in paper format. For example, it may be your tax report, a letter allocating a place in a kindergarten, a building permit or a decision concerning benefits from NAV. If you opt out, it applies to the entire public sector, both central and local government.
Due to the postal service you will receive the letter later than if you could log in and immediately see the letter when it is sent.
If you opt out of online communication, you will still be able to log in to, and use, public services online.
