Processing of personal data
We care about your privacy. We want you to feel safe when you entrust us with your personal data. That’s why we’ve created this policy. It is based on current data protection legislation and clarifies how we work to safeguard your rights and privacy.
The purpose of this policy is to let you know how we process your personal data, what we use it for, who has access to 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 policy is not to process more personal data than is necessary for the purposes, and we always aim to use the least privacy-sensitive data.
We also need your personal data to provide you with a good service, for example, in terms of marketing, follow–up and information. We may also need your personal data to comply with laws and perform customer and market analysis.
You have the right to object to our use of personal data for direct marketing purposes. When we collect personal data about you for the first time, we will provide you with more information about this and how you can object.
Which personal data do we process?
- E-mail address
- Phone number
- Date of birth
- Payment card number, credit card number and other bank related data
- Data that you registered voluntarily and provide
- Content that you publish yourself, so-called user-generated content
How do we get access to your personal data?
Where possible, we try to obtain your consent before we start processing your personal data. We do this by having you fill in explicit consent clauses where processing 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 obtain new ones, provided that it is not necessary for the performance of our obligations under the contract or by law. Please note that withdrawing consent may mean that we cannot fulfil our obligations to you.
We may also access your personal data in the following ways:
- Data you provide to us directly
- Data collected when you visit our website
- Data we receive from public registers
- Data we receive when you hire one of our employees
- Information we receive when you register for our courses or seminars
- Information we receive when you sign up for newsletters and other promotions
- Information we receive when you respond to questionnaires and researches
- Information we receive when you contact us, apply for employment with us, visit us or otherwise make contact with us
What information do we provide to you?
When we collect your personal data for the first time, we will inform you about how we obtained the personal data, what we will use it for, what your rights are under data protection legislation and how you can exercise them. You will also be informed of who is responsible for the processing of your personal data and how you can contact us if you have any questions or need to make a request or enquiry relating to your personal data and/or rights. Is your personal data processed in a secure manner?
We develop procedures and practices to ensure that your personal data is handled securely. The starting point is that only employees and other persons within the organisation who need the personal data to perform their duties should have access to it. In the case of sensitive personal data, we have put in place specific access controls, which provide a higher level of protection for your personal data.
Our security systems are designed with your privacy in mind and provide a high level of protection against intrusion, destruction and other changes that could put your privacy at risk.
We have several IT security policies in place to ensure that your personal data is processed securely.
We do not transfer personal data other than as expressly stated in this policy.
When do we provide your personal data?
Our policy is not to disclose your personal data to third parties unless you have consented to it or it is necessary for the performance of our obligations under the contract or by law. Where we do disclose personal data to third parties, we will draw up confidentiality agreements and ensure that personal data is processed in a secure manner.
Springhill Textile AB is a data controller, which means that we are responsible for how your personal data is processed and that your rights are safeguarded.
