Your rights

Here you will find information about your rights.

You have the right to receive a register extract with your personal data. If you believe that an information about you is incorrect or incomplete, you have the right to request that the information be corrected or supplemented.

In cases where we have asked for your consent to use your personal data, you have the right to change your mind at any time and withdraw your consent for further processing. Contact customer service if you wish to withdraw your consent.

You have the right to refrain from advertising and communication mailings at any time, both digital and in paper format. You can unsubscribe by clicking on a link in the digital mailing or contacting customer service.

For some processing, we have made the assessment that our need for us to process your personal data is so strong that we have a so-called legitimate interest. You have the right to oppose this assessment.

If it turns out in a balance of interests that our legitimate reasons for the processing in question outweigh your privacy interest, we may continue to process your personal data, even though you have objected to the processing. If we are unable to demonstrate this, we will stop processing your personal data.
Under certain circumstances, you may have the right to have your data deleted. For example, these may be cases where there is no longer any need to process the personal data or if you have renounced direct mail. However, in cases where we need the data in order to, for example, fulfil a contract with you or if there are legal requirements for us to keep the personal data, we cannot delete it.
You also have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted if, for example, you object to our legitimate interest in carrying out a processing. However, this may mean that during the time the processing is restricted, we are unable to perform our possible obligations to you.
You have the right to have the personal data that you have given us moved (data portal). Such information may be, for example, if you provided your e-mail address in connection with registration for a mailing. In other words, only certain data are covered by data portal. To see what this data is, you have the right to receive a copy of the personal data you have provided to us in a structured, machine-readable format.
