Existing and potential customers, suppliers, and partners, etc.
We process personal information about existing and potential customers (in business relationships), suppliers and other partners for sales and marketing activities, to manage our relationship with suppliers and others, prepare, implement, and document services as well as evaluate the use of services. In these cases, we will process names, contact information, company names and information related to the contact with the company in which the person in question works.
Private data processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or of a third party, and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the first-mentioned interests. Article 6(1)(f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.
We also store and disclose information where we have a legal obligation to do so, for example in accordance with accounting and tax legislation.
We will keep your data for as long as they are needed for the purposes for which your data was collected and processed or required by laws and regulations.
In many cases, it will be necessary for us to obtain personal information to enter into agreements with customers and suppliers, among other things to document that an agreement has been entered. If we do not receive the information we need, we will not be able to enter into agreements.
It is voluntary for the you to provide us with personal information. If we collect personal information from others, it will mainly apply to contact information (including name, address, telephone number and e-mail address), position, function, and employer, as well as any competence and references where relevant. The source for such information will be the contact person’s employer, for example from the employer’s website. In some cases, we collect references from others to assess the suitability of suppliers and partners.
We store the information until the relationship with the customer, supplier, or partner ceases or until the contact person ceases to be the contact person, with the exceptions mentioned above.

Personal information means all information that relates to an identified individual or to an identifiable individual. For example, your name, address, email address, educational and employment background, CV, and job qualifications. Personal information is also referred to as information about you.
We use the job search service Cvideo to manage submitted applications, and this is our data processor. If you register with the job search service with your own profile, the service will be responsible for processing your personal data. For information about the processing of personal data in the service, check Cvideos privacy statement. The processing of personal data by the personal data is based on consent that you have given in the jobseeker service (GDPR article 6 (1) a), whether such is obtained or the grounds that follow below.
The basis for the processing of personal data when recruiting is that the processing is necessary to implement measures before a work agreement with the jobseeker is entered (GDPR article 6 (1) b). If inquiries are made by us in addition to this, such as contacting persons who are not given as a reference, examining when searching for history, etc., then personal data is processed based on our necessary legitimate interest to ensure that the correct candidate for the position (GDPR article 6 (1) f). For the latter, we have considered that our legitimate interest in recruiting new employees outweighs individual privacy. We encourage you not to enter special categories of personal information, such as health, religion, political opinion, union membership, etc. in your application.
Information in the service is deleted as soon as the recruitment is completed if you have not agreed to a longer storage of your personal data.

We store personal information for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which the personal information was collected and delete the information in accordance with requirements in the regulations. How long we process the individual types of information we process is included in the above where the individual ways of processing are discussed.
Instead of deleting the personal data, in some cases it may be relevant to anonymize the personal data. Anonymization means that all identifying or potentially identifying characteristics are removed from data sets that are being processed
This means, for example, that personal data that we process based on your consent will be deleted if you withdraw your consent. Personal information we process to fulfill an agreement with you is deleted when the agreement has been fulfilled and all obligations arising from the contractual relationship have been fulfilled, such as legal obligations related to accounting, follow-up of the customer relationship related to complaints, etc. Personal data we process because of a legal obligation will be deleted as soon as we have no obligation to store the information.

Transfer or disclosure of personal information to others
We do not pass on personal information to others in cases other than those mentioned in this declaration and unless there is a legal basis for such disclosure.
Examples of such a basis will typically be an agreement with or consent from the data subject or a legal basis that requires us to release the information. The latter applies to public activities such as tax collection (if necessary), accountant / auditor, as well as others that we need in our business as a bank connection.
We use data processors to collect, store or otherwise process personal data on our behalf. In such cases, we have entered into agreements to safeguard your rights and security for your personal information at all stages of the processing. See more below.
If it is required by law or there is a suspicion that a crime has been committed in connection with the use of our services, personal information we have stored about you may be disclosed to public authorities.
If personal data may be subject to transfer to another organization in connection with a merger, financing, reorganization or dissolution transaction of all or part of us, we will only do so if the parties involved have entered into an agreement where the collection, use and sharing of personal data is limited to the purposes of the transaction, including a provision as to whether or not the transaction will proceed, and the personal data shall only be used by the parties involved to complete and complete the transaction. If another company buys us or our business or assets, that company will have access to the personal information collected by us and will assume the rights and obligations regarding your personal information as described in this privacy statement.
