What is personal data? 

Personal data is any information which can be used to identify a person who is alive. This can be civil registration number, name and address. Photographs taken and sound recorded of individuals which is processed on a computer can also be personal data event though no names are mentioned. Encrypted information and various types of electronic identities (for e.g. IP-address and cookies) is personal data if they can be linked to a natural person.

Who is responsible for the personal data we collect?

ArkDes is responsible for all personal data which the organization collects.

What is processing personal data? 

Processing personal data is everything that happens with the data. Every measure that is taken with the personal data is processing, regardless if it is automated or not. Common processes are for example: collecting, registering, organizing, structuring, changing, storing, handling, spreading, transmitting and deleting.

Where do we get your personal data?

Beyond the data that you submit to us, or that we collect on you from your purchase, we can come to collect personal data while documenting our operations and events. In these instances the data that is collected is photographs, as well as, sound and video recordings.

Who do we share your personal data with?

Personal data controller. Where it is vital for us to be able to offer our services we will share your personal data with companies which are so-called personal data controllers to us. A personal data controller is a company that handles information on our behalf and in accordance with our instructions.

We have personal data controllers helping us with:

  1. Marketing and information (services for newsletters and correspondence, media and web agencies, distribution)
  2. Transport (logistics and delivery companies)
  3. Booking and service (to manage various events, guided tours and classes)
  4. IT-services (companies that handle basic operations, tech support and maintenance of IT-solutions)

Your personal data is shared with a personal data controller only when the objective is consistent with the purposes of collecting the data (for e.g. in order to fulfil our commitment in accordance with an agreement or in exercising our official power as public authority). We have written contracts with all personal data controllers where it is stated that they guarantee the safety and security of the personal data that is being processed and where they agree to comply with our security demands and restrictions, as well as, demands regarding international transfer of personal data.

Companies which are independently responsible for personal data

We also share personal data with certain companies who are independently responsible for personal data. This means that we do not control how the information given to them is processed.

  • State authority (the police, tax authority or other state authorities) if we are required to do so by law or because of a suspected crime.
  • Companies which offer payment services (payment facilitators, banks and other payment service provider).

Where do we process your data?

We always strive to so all of our data processing within the EU/EES – area and all of our own IT-systems and all of the personal data controllers we hire are within this area. During support and maintenance of our systems your data may be used by one of our service providers, we ensure that there always is a data protection policy in place so that the receiver processes the data in the same secure way we do.

In cases where data is used outside of the EU, for e.g. by one of our service providers, we ensure that there are safeguards and protective measures in place, for e.g. data transmission agreements, so that the receiver processes the data in the same secure way that we do.

What are your rights when we have your personal data?

Right of access (extraction from register). We are always open and transparent about how we carry out data processing with your personal data and you can at any time request access to the data.

Right of rectification. You can always request that your personal data be corrected if the data is incorrect. Within the framework of the stated purpose you have the right to supplement any incomplete personal data.

The right of erasure. You can request that we erase the personal data we have on you if:

  • The data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or processed.
  • The personal data has been processed in an unlawful way.
  • Personal data must be deleted to comply with a legal obligation we are subject to.

We have the right to refuse your request if there are obligations that prevent us from immediately deleting certain personal data. These obligations come from accounting and tax regulation legislation, bank- and money laundering legislation, but also from consumer rights legislation.

It may also be possible that processing is necessary for us to determine, enforce or defend legal claims. Should we be prevented from meeting a request for deletion, we will instead block personal data from being used for purposes other than the purpose that prevents the requested deletion.

The right to restriction. You have the right to request that our processing of your personal data be restricted. If you dispute that the personal data we process is accurate, you may request restricted treatment during the time we need to check whether your personal data is correct.

The right to data portability. If our right to process your personal data is based on either your consent or fulfilment of a agreement with you, you have the right to ask to have the information relating to you and that you have provided to us transferred to another data controller (known as data portability). A prerequisite for data portability is that the transfer is technically possible and can be automated.

How do we handle personal identification numbers?

We will only process your personal identification number when it is clearly motivated for the purpose, necessary for secure identification, or if there is any other significant reason.  We will always minimize the use of your personal identification number by using, when possible, your date of birth instead.

How are your personal data protected?

We use IT systems to protect the privacy, integrity and access to personal data. We have taken special security measures to protect your personal data against illegal or unauthorized treatment (such as unauthorized access, loss, destruction or damage). Only those persons who actually need to process your personal data to fulfil our stated purposes have access to them.

What is the easiest way to contact us regarding questions on data protection?

We take data protection very seriously and as an authority, we are also obliged to have a special data protection officer dealing with these issues. You can reach the data protection officer at dataskydd@arkdes.se.
