The legal basis for processing personal data

Vasa Vind Group Holdings AB and our subsidiaries process the information required for us to be able to fulfill our contractual obligations. The personal data is saved as long as it is necessary to fulfill the agreement or legal obligations, which means that after terminated agreements, we save the necessary data based on legal obligations such as the Accounting Act (1999:1078) and limitation periods. In cases where contracts have required the processing of extra protection data, such as personal or account numbers, these will be deleted no later than 30 days after the legal basis has ceased.

Based on legitimate interest, we keep personal data for the purpose of entering into new similar collaborations after the end of the contract and for marketing purposes. Deletion takes place annually to keep our contact details relevant and is deleted when the processing is no longer necessary to fulfill the purpose of the processing.

In some situations, we need your consent to process your data. In these cases, you may consent to the specific processing. Data processed on the basis of consent are processed until you withdraw your consent.

Who has access to your personal data?

Your data may be processed by our data processors who perform tasks on behalf of the Vasa Vind companies. These data processors will then only process the data in accordance with the purposes for which your personal data was collected, and according to Vasa Vind’s instructions.

Disclosures are made according to legal obligations and practices to e.g. authorities, auditors and lawyers.

We will not sell, share or otherwise disseminate your personal data to third parties, except in accordance with this policy and the GDPR.
