Processing of personal data
The purpose of this policy is to tell you how we treat your personal information, what we use it for, who has access to it and under what conditions, and how you can take advantage of your rights.
We process your personal information primarily to fulfil our obligations to you. Our starting point is not to process more personal information than is necessary for the purpose, and we always strive to use minimally sensitive privacy data.
We also need your personal information to provide you with better service, such as through marketing, follow-up contacts, and providing information. We may also need your personal information to comply with laws, as well as to conduct customer and market analyses.
You have the right to oppose the use of personal data for direct marketing. When we collect personal information about you for the first time, you will get more information on this and how to object to that use of your data.
What personal data do we process? We process personal information when we have legal basis to do so. We do not process personal data in any case other than when doing so is required to fulfil obligations under a contract and/or the law.
Here are examples of personal data that we process:
Information you registered and declared voluntarily
Content that you publish (so-called user-generated content)
IP number (in some cases)
How do we get access to your personal information?
We try as far as possible to obtain your consent before we begin processing your personal data. We do this by asking you to fill out an explicit consent form in cases where the data processing is based on your consent.
You have the right to revoke your consent at any time. Once revoked, we will no longer process your personal information or obtain any new personal information, provided that it is not necessary to fulfil our obligations under a contract or the law. Keep in mind that withdrawal of your consent may mean that we cannot fulfil obligations we have in relation to you.
We also get access to your personal information as follows:
- Details you provide us directly

- Information that we receive when you hire one of our employees

What information do we provide to you?
When we collect your personal information for the first time, we will inform you of how we received that personal data, what data we are using, what rights you have under data protection laws, and how you may invoke those rights. You will also be informed of who is responsible for personal data processing and how to contact us if you have questions or if you need to provide a request or inquiry regarding your personal information and/or your rights.
Is your personal information processes safely?
We have developed procedures and practices to ensure that your personal information is handled safely and securely. To start with, only employees and other persons within the organization who need personal data to perform their duties have access to that data.

Our IT security policies are designed to ensure that all of your personal information is processed safely.
We do not transfer personal data in cases other than those expressly stated in this policy.
When do we share your personal information?
We make certain 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 a contract or the law.
