Why will we use your data?
Fulfillment of contract
Some of the data processing described above is necessary for us to provide the products and services that you have requested and to fulfill what we have agreed in the Terms and conditions or in another contract entered into between you and us. This includes, under the Terms and conditions, processing that is necessary for providing our products and services, giving access to the website, customer support, other communication, and recruiting. If we do not have access to this data, we will not be able to provide all parts of the products and services to you.
Some of the data processing is based on our legitimate interest to use the data. For an interest to be considered legitimate, our use of the data may not override your fundamental rights or interests. When we use data based on legitimate interest, we believe we have a reasonable cause for using the data and have assessed that the use will not violate your rights or interests. For example, we find that we have a legitimate interest in using certain data for enabling smooth surfing on our website, running our business operations, and improving our products and services.
If you are an existing customer, have signed up for a test ride, or have otherwise been in contact with us, we may also send newsletters or information about product launches to you based on our legitimate interest to market our products and services. You may, however, unsubscribe to such newsletters whenever by following the ‘unsubscribe’ link in the newsletter.
Some data is only processed if you consent to us using the data for the proposed purpose. For example, we will not advertise our products or services to you on other websites and social media, unless you have okayed such use of your data. We will ask for your cookie preferences in our cookie banner when you visit our website. You can read more about cookies and how to consent or decline them under “What are cookies and how are they used?”.
In addition to what is stated above, we may also need to collect and store data in order to comply with certain legal obligations we are subject to, such as retaining accounting information in accordance with the Swedish Accounting Act.
Who can access your data?
Payment service providers
In order to provide secure payments, we use well-renowned third-party payment service providers Adyen in our check-out. To provide you with payment options, they need to access your payment information.
Suppliers that help us provide our products and services
For the purposes we have described above (see “How will we use your personal data?”) it is sometimes necessary for us to share your data with third parties. We use certain partners to help us provide, improve, promote, and protect our products and services. For example, we use suppliers to provide our chat function, manage marketing, data storage, and web hosting on our behalf. These suppliers may only use your data in accordance with our instructions and we only share such data that is required to perform the service in question.
We may share data to authorities or other third parties when required by law or regulations or when it is necessary in order to protect or defend our legitimate rights and interests, or those of our users, employees, directors, or shareholders, and/or to ensure the safety and security of our products and services.
Other third parties
What are cookies and how are they used?
In addition to the data that you provide directly to us when using our products and services, some data is obtained automatically from your device using “cookies” or similar tracking technologies when you visit our website. Cookies are small text files that are used to store or access information stored on your computer or mobile device. Cookies can remember a user's activity on, for example, a website in different ways and can store information both during the website visit and between visits. The information contained in cookies can also be used to track your surfing on other websites that use the same cookie.
- ensure the basic functionality of the website, such as maintaining security and enabling you to fill in forms and questionnaires.
- give you access to enhanced website functionality, such as automatic country recognition and language settings.
- analyze the use of our website and help us make it better by collecting statistics on which pages are popular and which sections visitors click on the website and how long they stay on the page (if you consent to the use of such cookies).
- promote and market our products and services by displaying advertisement on other websites and in social media based on what sections you have clicked on our website and on other websites that use the same cookie (if you consent to the use of such cookies).
Some cookies, including those used to provide basic functionality and maintain security, are necessary for the website to function as intended, and these will be installed automatically on your device based on our legitimate interest to provide you with a functioning and safe website. Other cookies, such as those used for marketing and analytical purposes, will only be installed if you allow us to use such cookies when first visiting our website (as part of selecting your cookie preferences).
The cookies that are placed on your device are so-called third-party cookies, which means that certain third parties have access to the information collected through the cookies. Each cookie has a unique expiration date, which can be viewed in the cookie banner by selecting “settings”.
When you visit our website, you will be requested to set your cookie preferences. You can choose to allow all cookies, including marketing and analytics cookies, to only allow certain types of cookies, or to reject all cookies that are not necessary for surfing on the website.

How do we protect your data?
We take several steps to keep your data secure and protect it against unauthorized or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction, or damage. For example, we take both technical and organizational measures to protect your data through access control, authorization control, entry control, and encryption procedures. We also ensure that our third-party suppliers provide adequate security measures.
Where is your data stored?
The data that we collect about you is mainly processed and stored within the European Union but may be transferred to other countries where our partners or suppliers are located or maintain facilities. Before transferring data outside of the European Union, we will ensure adequate mechanisms to protect data when it is transferred internationally, for example by using the Standard Contractual Clauses as approved by the European Commission.
For how long do we store data?
How long we keep your data will vary depending on the purpose for which we collected the data. As a general rule, your data is used as long as it’s necessary for the purpose we collected the data for. The purposes for the data collection are listed under “How will we use your personal data?”. For your convenience, we will keep data connected to your participation profile and user account until you choose to unregister from your user account (or if you haven’t logged in for more than two years).

- The right to access your data. You always have the right to understand what personal information we collect and share.
