Processing of personal data

This privacy policy for UW-ELAST AB was established on June 26th 2018.

We care about your privacy. You should feel safe when you entrust us with your personal information. That is why we have established this policy. It is based on current data protection legislation and clarifies how we work to safeguard your rights and your privacy.

The purpose of this policy is for you to know how we process your personal data, what we use it for, who is allowed to use it and under what conditions, and how you can exercise your rights.


We process your personal data primarily to fulfil our obligations to you. Our starting point is not to process more personal data than is needed for the purpose and we always strive to use the least privacy-sensitive data.

We also need your personal information to provide you with good service, for example in terms of marketing, follow-up and information. We may also need your personal information to comply with laws and perform customer and market analysis.

You have the right to object to us using personal data for direct marketing. When we collect personal information about you for the first time, you will receive more information about this and how you can oppose it.


What personal data do we process? We only process personal data when we have a legal basis. We do not process personal data other than when they are needed to fulfil obligations under agreements and laws. Here are examples of the personal data we process:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Email address
  • Phone number
  • Fax number
  • User name
  • Information that you registered and provided voluntarily
  • Content that you publish yourself, so-called user-generated content
  • IP number (in some cases)

How do we access your personal information?

We try as much as possible to obtain your consent before we start processing your personal data. We do this by letting you fill in explicit consent clauses in cases where the treatment is based on consent.

You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. We will then no longer process your personal data or collect new ones, provided that it is not necessary to fulfill our obligations under agreements or laws. Keep in mind that revocation of consent may mean that we can not fulfill the obligations we have in relation to you.

We also gain access to your personal information in the following ways:

  • Information that you provide to us directly
  • Information that is registered when you visit our website
  • Information we receive from public registers
  • Information we receive when you hire one of our employees
  • Information that we receive when you register for events/training or similar
  • Information that we receive when you sign up for, for example, newsletters and mailings
  • Information we receive when you answer surveys and surveys
  • Information that we receive when you contact us, apply for employment with us, ask about our products and services, visit us or otherwise contact us.

What information do we give you?

When we collect your personal data for the first time, we will inform you about how we have obtained the personal data, what we will use them for, what rights you have under the data protection legislation and how you can utilize them. You will also be informed about who is responsible for the processing of personal data and how you can contact us if you have questions or need to submit a request or inquiry concerning your personal data and/or rights.

Is your personal data processed in a secure manner?

We develop routines and working methods for your personal data to be handled in a secure manner. The starting point is that only employees and other persons within the organization who need personal data to perform their tasks shall have access to it.

In the case of sensitive personal data, we have set up special authorization checks, which means higher protection for your personal data.

Our security systems are developed with your privacy in focus and protect to a very high degree against intrusion, destruction and other changes that may pose a risk to your privacy.

We have an IT security policy to ensure that your personal data is processed securely.

We do not transfer personal data in cases other than those explicitly stated in this policy.

When do we disclose your personal information?

Our starting point is not to disclose your personal information to third parties unless you have consented to it or if it is not necessary to fulfil our obligations under the agreement or law. In cases where we disclose personal data to third parties, we establish confidentiality agreements and ensure that the personal data is processed in a secure manner.


UW-ELAST AB is responsible for personal data, which means that we are responsible for how your personal data is processed and that your rights are safeguarded.
