Security and transfer of personal data
Transfer of personal data to third parties
We will not share, sell, transfer or otherwise disclose personal information in addition to what is stated in this Personal Data Policy, unless we are obliged to do so by law or as a result of a court decision or if we have obtained your consent to such disclosure. The company may disclose personal information to third parties, such as the police or other authority, if it concerns the investigation of suspected crime or if we are otherwise obliged to disclose such information on the basis of law or government decision. The Company may engage external suppliers to perform tasks on behalf of the Company, e.g. to provide IT services, update address information or assist with marketing and analytics. The performance of these services may mean that the Company’s suppliers, both within the EU / EEA and outside the EU / EEA, gain access to personal data. These providers process the information on our behalf in accordance with written personal data assistant agreements and our instructions. Personal data assistants who gain access to your personal data (eg when we use a third party, to collect address data or store information on a server), are not given any right to use your personal data for purposes other than those stated in this Personal Data Policy, but will primarily be used to the extent necessary to be able to provide the Service.
Transfer of personal data to third countries
The company may collaborate with partners who process personal data within and outside the EU / EEA. In the event that the Company chooses to hire suppliers outside the EU / EEA, e.g. cloud service providers, the Company will in such case take special protection measures, such as signing agreements that include standardized model clauses for data transmission which have been adopted by the European Commission and which are available on the European Commission’s website or companies that maintain the same level of protection as within the EU / EEA.
Security for the protection of personal data
The company safeguards your privacy and a high level of security for your personal information. The company has taken appropriate security measures to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, alteration, dissemination or destruction. All processing of your personal data takes place under strict confidentiality.
Storage and thinning of personal data
The processing takes place in accordance with current legislation and means that personal data is not stored for a longer period than is necessary with regard to the purposes of the processing. We will store your personal information as long as you choose to have a user account with us or, if you do not have a user account, until the service you have chosen to perform is completed. When the personal data no longer fulfills the purpose, these will be deleted. The same personal information can be stored in several different places for different purposes. This may mean that information that has been deleted from a system because it is no longer necessary may remain in another system where it is stored on the basis of a different legal basis or for another purpose where the personal data is still needed. If you subscribe to our newsletter, your contact information will be saved as long as you choose to continue receiving the newsletter. In practical terms, this means that data is thinned out and deleted when they are no longer relevant or necessary for analysis or direct marketing for the purposes for which they have been collected. Some information can be retained longer when required due to other legal requirements, such as the Accounting Act.

For any additional copies, the Company is entitled to charge a reasonable fee based on the Company’s administrative costs for such copies.

- if the personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected;
- if the processing is based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time and thereafter the right to delete the data (provided that there is no other legal basis for the processing);

Right to object
