Purpose of the processing of personal data

The controller processes personal data related to customers’ contact information for the purpose required by the trade in its products and services. The registrar also processes the personal data of its staff in order to fulfill their employment obligations.

Records maintained

  • Customer register
  • Personnel register

Separate register descriptions have been prepared for the registers to be maintained.

Information content of the registers

Customer contact information and contact information for customer contacts; that is, names, work addresses, telephone numbers, and e-mail addresses.

In the case of staff, the information needed to meet pay and other employment obligations; that is, personal and contact information, education, job title, duration of employment, and bank contact information.


During recruitment, we store the following information:

  • Contact information: name, email address, phone number.
  • Information from the curriculum vitae/CV, including work history, educational information, skills, language skills and other information included in the curriculum vitae.
  • Application letter: any information included in the application letter

In connection with recruitment or internally when the work task changes, we may ask the applicant to go through an assessment of competence, personality or cognitive abilities. These evaluations are usually performed using a third-party computer program or a third-party company that shares the results with us. Before carrying out the assessment in question, we provide additional information related to the applicant’s situation.

We may decide to obtain recommendations from people who have worked with the applicant in the past, either ourselves or in connection with the assessment carried out through a third party. We will only contact the persons in question if the applicant has given us their name and contact information.

Some of our positions require a short security clearance in connection with recruitment. In this case, personal data is handed over to the clearance process. This requirement is always stated in the job advertisement and the process is only started after the recruitment decision. The recruit is always told separately about starting the process.

Regular sources of information

The information in the registers has been obtained from the registrants themselves.


The information in the registers will not be disclosed to third parties.
