Our processing of personal data is carried out in accordance with the provisions arising from the applicable personal data legislation, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation, EU 2016/679, ("GDPR").

PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT

We collect the data primarily directly from you within the framework of the relationship that we have with you. You can be a contact person at one of our customers, suppliers and/or partners or a consultant, job seeking candidate and/or student. In short, people we interact with in the course of our business. We may process personal data for the purposes outlined below, as a part of caring and maintaining our commercial relationship with your employer or you personally.

Examples of personal information we may process are your name, contact information, such as your mobile phone number, address, email address, LinkedIn profile, and other social media. We may also update your information from other public records, such as via the Swedish Companies Registration office (Bolagsverket), SPAR, etc. This is only done if it is deemed necessary to maintain good data quality.

We may also register personal information provided to us when you interact with us digitally in connection with:

  • When you fill in your name, email address and/or your mobile phone number on one of our websites.

  • If you contact us by email, our websites and social media.

INFORMATION THAT MAY BE DISCLOSED

We may disclose your personal information to any member of our group of companies (this means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and all its subsidiaries) where we deem this to be of interest and relevance to the business relationship we have with your employer or you.

We may also disclose personal information with service providers that we have hired to fulfill the purposes of our processing of your personal information. These service providers provide IT services and marketing services unless otherwise informed.

If you are looking for a job assignment or are a candidate, we may also disclose information to our external customer or partner companies as part of our work to find assignments for you.

We only work with partners who process personal data within the EU/EEA [or with companies that maintain the same level of protection as in the EU/EEA.] Any transfer of personal data complies with the requirements of the GDPR.

 

STORAGE AND DELETION OF PERSONAL DATA

Processing takes place in accordance with current legislation and means that personal data is not retained for a longer period than is necessary. We will store your personal information for as long as you are an active and potential customer, candidate (including subcontractor or jobseeker), or partner to us. If our relationship has ceased and/or it is not deemed reasonable to be reactivated, we will  remove your information. Such data reviews take place periodically and at least once a year.  Unless we have specifically addressed it, or obtained your specific approval, the personal information of anyone  who has been inactive in their relationship with us is deleted after 3 years of inactivity.

Certain information can be kept longer when required due to legal requirements, such as the Accounting Act.

When  processing and storing personal data, its confidentiality and the relevant level of organizational and technical security measures are observed based upon the risk and sensitivity of the data processed.

 

PERSONAL DATA PROTECTION AGREEMENT AND OTHER APPLICABLE TERMS AND CONDITIONS

If your personal data processed by us is subject to a representation agreement that we have entered into with your employer or other party responsible for your personal data, the representation agreement (to the extent appropriate) shall take precedent over and above what is stated in this policy. In such an occurrence, we will process your personal data in accordance with the terms of the representation agreement. In the same way, if you have registered for any of our services, communications etc., the terms and conditions provided at the time you registered your use of such service(s) will apply.

 

YOUR RIGHTS AND CHOICES

You have rights with respect to your personal information and you are able to amend your information and what is saved. We will, at your request and/or our partners' request, correct information that is found to be inaccurate. You may also request that your information be deleted or that its use be restricted by contacting us (for contact channels see the "How To Contact Us" section). If you believe that your rights are not respected by us, please feel free to contact us or you can get in touch with the privacy authority (the former Data Inspection board).

You also have the right to object to the processing of your personal data. If this happens, we must demonstrate compelling legitimate reasons that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms in order to continue the processing of your personal data.

You may at any time refrain from receiving marketing communications from us by, where relevant, updating your account settings on "My Pages" (or similar), by clicking "Unsubscribe" in any email and SMS communication which we send you. You are always welcome to contact us for help to opt out of our communication.
