Data and how we process it
Nordic Guarantee processes personal data which is necessary in order for us to provide you with our product and other services. Which personal data we collect depends on your relationship with Nordic Guarantee, and may include; name, title, company address, telephone number, e-mail address, and FastTrack login credentials. Nordic Guarantee processes personal data which we have collected directly from you, the data subject, for instance, when you purchase a guarantee or require a quote through our web portal FastTrack, or when you submit a claim through the claims form on our website. Occasionally, we collect personal data from another source, such as the company you represent, or from the applicant of a guarantee.
We also collect personal data from publicly available sources, for instance personal data registries (e.g. Bisnode). We can also collect information about how you use our website through cookies.
What do we use personal data for?
Nordic Guarantee processes your personal data for (i) the performance of a contract to which the company you represent is party, (ii) the performance of contractual obligations to you as a beneficiary, and (iii) send you information and direct marketing by e-mail or otherwise.
We process personal data, such as name, title, company, e-mail address and telephone number, in order for us to market our products and services directly to you. When directing direct marketing to you, this is done by telephone, e-mail or via our web. If you do not want to receive direct marketing or do not want us to look at your information for this purpose, notify us through the procedure stated below.
To process data for the above stated purposes, we are required to have a legal ground for each processing activity. We process your personal data based on the following legal grounds:
That the processing is necessary
- for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract, and
- for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller. The legitimate interest pursued by Nordic Guarantee is to be able to conduct direct marketing of its products.
How long do we store personal data?
Your personal data will only be stored as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose of the processing. Your personal data will be deleted or anonymized when they are no longer relevant for the purposes for which they were collected.
To whom do we transfer personal data?
Your personal information will only be disclosed to the extent that it is relevant to achieve the purpose of the processing. Your personal data may be transferred to and processed by Nordic Guarantee’s offices located within the EU/EEA.
Nordic Guarantee employs processors to handle certain tasks, such as operation and support of the IT environment, archiving, and to send out information by e-mail. That means that the processors also may access some information about you as a data subject. However, these parties may not process your personal data for any other purpose than the one we specify.
Some of Nordic Guarantees processors may have a part of their operations in countries outside Sweden or EU/EEA (“third countries”). If we transfer your data to a supplier in such a third country, we take appropriate safeguards and ensure that the transferred data is handled in accordance with applicable law. We sign agreements with our processors containing clauses approved by the European Commission regarding privacy protection, to ensure that they meet the required level of privacy protection.
