9 From what sources do we retrieve your data?

In addition to the information you provide to us, we may also collect data from third parties. These are as follows:

  • Addresses from public records to be sure we have the right address information about you
  • Credit rating data from credit rating agencies, banks or business information companies
  • Social media data


10 Who do we share your data with?

Data Processors. A data processor is a company that processes the data on our behalf and according to our instructions. We have data processors who help us with:

  • Marketing, i.e. media agencies or advertising agencies that provide services such as print and distribution, visibility in social media
  • IT services, i.e. companies that handle the necessary operations, technical support and maintenance of our IT solutions

We check all data processors to ensure that they can provide sufficient safeguards regarding the security and confidentiality of personal data. We have written agreements with all data processors through which they guarantee the security of the data processed and undertake to comply with our security requirements as well as restrictions and requirements regarding international transferring of personal data.

Companies that are Data Controllers. We also share your data with certain companies that are data controllers. The fact that the company is a data controller means that we are not controlling how the information submitted to the company will be processed.

Data controllers with whom we share your data are:

  • Government agencies such as the police and the tax office if we are required to do so by law or on suspicions of crime
  • Companies that provide general goods transport such as logistics companies and freight forwarders
  • Companies offering payment solutions such as banks and other payment service providers, as well as insurance companies

When your data is shared with a data controller, the data is processed in accordance with the data controller’s privacy policy.


11 Where do we process your data?

We always strive for your data to be processed within the EU / EEA and all our own IT systems are located within the EU / EEA. For marketing and sales purposes, however, we may have to transfer the information to a non- EU country.

Regardless of the country in which your data is processed, we take all reasonable legal, technical and organizational measures to ensure that the level of protection is the same as within the EU / EEA. Examples of appropriate safeguard measures are approved code of conduct in the recipient country, standard contract clauses, binding company internal rules or confidentiality.


12 How long do we save data?

We will never save data longer than what is necessary for each purpose, see section 3-8 above.


13 What rights do you have as registered person?

Right to access data. We are always transparent about how we process data and if you want a deeper insight into what data we are processing, you may request access to the data.

Right to rectification. You may request that your data be corrected if the information is incorrect. Within the stated purpose, you also have the right to supplement any incomplete data.

Right to deletion. You may request the deletion of data we are processing if:

  • The data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected.
  • You oppose a balance of interest that we made.
  • You oppose treatment for direct marketing purposes.
  • Data is processed illegally.
  • Data must be deleted to comply with a legal obligation we are subject to.

Keep in mind that we may have the right to deny your request if there are legal obligations that prevent us from immediately deleting certain data.

Right to restriction. You are entitled to request limitations of data processing.

Right to object to certain types of processing. You are always entitled to avoid direct marketing and to object to all processing of data based on a balance of interest.

Balancing of interest: In case we use balance of interest as a legal basis for our data processing, you may object to the processing. In order to continue processing your data after such objection, we need to present a compelling legitimate reason for the current processing that weighs heavier than your interests, rights or freedom. Otherwise, we may only process the data to determine, exercise or defend legal claims.

Direct Marketing: You may object to your data being processed for direct marketing. Direct marketing refers to all types of outreach marketing measures. Marketing actions where you have actively chosen to use one of our services or else sought us to know more about our services do not count as direct marketing.

Right to data portability. If our right to process data is based either on your consent or completion of an agreement, you are entitled to request the data relating to you and which you have provided to us transferred to another data controller. A prerequisite for data portability is that the transmission is technically possible and can be automated.


14 How do we handle personal code numbers?

We will only process your personal code number when it is clearly motivated for the purpose, necessary for secure identification, or if there is any other reasonable reason. We will always minimize the use of your personal code number and by using, if it is enough, your birth date instead.
