What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer or mobile device browser from a website’s computer and is stored on your device’s hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other websites. Many websites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows.

Users have the opportunity to set their devices to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these means that certain personalised features cannot then be provided to that user and accordingly they may not be able to take full advantage of all of the website’s features. Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.

These processing operations are based on our and your employer's legitimate interest to conduct our businesses and to maintain contact during ongoing business relationships.

We also retain documents containing your Personal Data in order to be compliant with legal requirements such as tax law, record-keeping and reporting obligations. Such retention of information is done based on the legal obligations which we must follow as a company.

We will also retain documents containing your Personal Data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. Such retention of information is done in our or your employer’s legitimate interest to process legal claims.

4.5 Overlapping purposes and purpose limitation

Some of the above purposes will overlap and there may be several legal bases for processing which justify our use of your personal data, depending on the processing activity taking place.

We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another purpose and that purpose is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.


We will store your personal data for as long as it is necessary. In general, this means that personal data will be stored for as long as the information is needed for the purpose for which it was collected or if it is needed to fulfil another purpose that does not conflict with the purpose for which it was first collected.

Personal data contained in documents that are retained as a part of book-keeping (such as signed contracts, order confirmations, bills or receipts) will be kept for a period of seven years in accordance with the Swedish accounting act.

Aggregated data that does not contained Personal Data regarding the reason you choose to opt-out will be retained.

Technical information that is gathered from the website is aggregated within 90 days. Aggregated technical information does not contain personal data, meaning that no specific individual can be identified.

We will delete the information that is no longer needed but may retain certain personal data to meet legal requirements. For example, if you are an employee of one of our partners and you were involved in contract negotiations, information relevant to the business relationship will be stored for the duration of the relationship and a period of 12 months after. If you unsubscribe from taking part in direct marketing or information, information related to this purpose will be deleted immediately.
