The purposes of, legal basis and storage periods for, our processing of your personal data

Below we have compiled our various purposes with our processing of your personal data, the categories of personal data pertaining to the respective process, the legal basis for the processing and how long we store your personal data:

If you choose not to provide certain personal information to us?

You are not required to provide personal information to us except when provided by law. But please note, if you choose not to provide us with certain personal data or limit our right to process your personal data, that may result in that we cannot fully manage our relationship with you, process your job application or fail to meet an agreement we have with you.

What are our legitimate interests?

As you can see in the list above, we may process your personal information because it is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests. Our “legitimate interest” corresponds to the purpose for which we perform each processing based on our interest.

When we process your personal information for our legitimate interests, we perform a balancing test where we make sure to consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative), and your rights under data protection laws. Our legitimate interests, such as business, commercial and employer interests, do not automatically override your interests. We will not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law).

We do not consider that our processing disadvantages you in any way. We use your information only in ways you would understand and reasonably expect, and which have a minimal privacy impact, or where there is a compelling justification for the processing.

You have a right to object to processing that is based on our legitimate interests. If you wish to do so, please send an e-mail to

How to revoke your consent

We do not process your personal data based on your consent. If we at any point in the future will process your personal data based on your consent (in such case you will be duly informed beforehand), you have a right to revoke your consent to this processing of your personal data at any time. If you would like to make use of this right and revoke your consent, please contact us at  Please note, if you revoke your consent, it does not affect the legality of the processing we have performed based on your consent before it was revoked.

We may disclose your personal information to any of our consultants, insurers, professional advisers, suppliers, subcontractors, advertisement partners, business partners, customers and companies within our company group insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy.

10. Your rights

Right of access and to information

You have the right to obtain a confirmation from us as to whether or not personal data concerning you are being processed by us, and, where that is the case, you have the right to access that personal data.

We will, free of charge and once per year upon your request, provide a copy of your personal data undergoing processing. If you make the request by electronic means, and unless otherwise requested by you, the information will be provided in a commonly used electronic form.

Right to rectification

You have the right to obtain from us, the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning you. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, you also have the right to have incomplete personal data completed.

Right to erasure (”right to be forgotten”)

You have the right to obtain from us, the erasure of personal data concerning you and we have the obligation to erase your personal data in some situations, for example:

  • if the personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected,
  • if the processing is based on your consent and you withdraw that consent (and there is no other legal basis for the treatment),
  • if the processing is based on our legitimate interests and you object to the processing and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing,
  • if the personal data have been unlawfully processed, or
  • if the personal data have to be erased for compliance with a legal obligation, etc.

There might be reasons as to why we cannot immediately erase all your personal data. Our continuous processing of your personal data might for example be necessary in order for us to fulfil a legal obligation that requires processing of your personal data, for example bookkeeping and tax legislation, or to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim. In that case we will block the information that could not be immediately erased from use for any other purposes than the ones that hindered the information from being erased immediately.

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right, under certain conditions, to obtain from us restriction of processing of your personal data. Restriction of processing means that your stored personal data will be marked with the aim of limiting their processing in the future to certain given purposes.

The right to restriction applies for example when you have contested the accuracy of your personal data, for a period enabling us to verify the accuracy of the personal data, and when you have objected to our processing based on our legitimate interests, pending the verification whether our legitimate grounds override yours.

Right to data portability

You may have the right, under certain conditions, to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from us.

When exercising your right to data portability, you have the right to have your personal data transmitted directly from us to another controller, where technically feasible.

Right to object

You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to certain processing of your personal data.
