In order to process personal data, it is necessary that the processing is based on a legal basis. We want you to feel secure when you submit your personal data on our website and know that we protect your personal privacy.

This privacy policy explains how we collect and use your information. It also describes what rights you have. You can read more about the Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on the Swedish Data Inspectorate’s website.

Which information is collected and why?

The personal data that is collected will normally come directly from you or generated in connection with your use of our services. Sometimes additional information is required to keep the information up to date or to verify that the information collected is accurate.

Communication

We process your personal information when you get in contact with you, for example when we send you some information about our services or answer questions and other inquiries.

Contact form

When you send a message to us via our contact form or talk to us via our other media as well as in person, you will be notified if we collect your personal information. This information includes name, email address, telephone number and other details related to the subject so that we can respond to your request.

Contact forms from website visitors may be checked via an automated spam detection service.

Cookies

Websites save text files on visitors’ computers. The purpose may be to provide access to all kinds of features or to track how visitors browse the site. You call the text file a cookie. There are at least two types of cookies – one variant has an expiration date and the other variant is a temporary cookie that disappears when you close your browser.

Most browsers allow you to turn off cookies. To do this, look at the “help” menu in your browser.
Turning off cookies may limit your use of our website.

Provision of services

We process personal data to identify you as a customer/user or to perform our services in accordance with our agreement.
We also process personal data to charge for the services you use, to handle your invoices and payments, for credit reporting purposes, to correct errors and to handle other incidents, and to handle complaints.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

We never store personal data any longer than we need to. Some personal data are discarded directly, others are saved for a long time depending on what the data is to be used for and our obligations under the law.
When the time for how long we save the data has expired, we will safely delete your information.

How is your data protected by us?

We care about protecting your privacy. That’s why we use IT systems to protect your privacy and access to your personal information. The web host we use has servers located in Europe that maintain GDPR standards.

Only those people who actually need to process your personal data in order for us to fulfill our stated purposes are entitled to access them.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

Who we share your information with

In cases where it is necessary to be able to offer our services, we share your personal information with companies that are so-called “personal data assistants”. We have personal data assistants who help us with payment solutions (bank and payment service providers), marketing (print and distribution, social media, media agencies or advertising agencies) and IT services (companies that handle the necessary operations, technical support, and maintenance of our IT solutions).

When your personal information is shared with personal data assistants, it only happens for the purposes that are consistent with the reason why we collected your information. We have written agreements with the personal data assistants we work with.
