2.5 Lawful basis

In order for us as a company to be able to save different individuals personal data, we must have a legal basis. If we have no legal basis, we can not process your personal information. There are six legal bases under the GDPR and there are four that are relevant to us:

  • Approval/Consent – You as a person have given us your explicit permission to handle your personal information for certain purposes that you have clearly received information about. This should be useful in writing. You can withdraw your consent at any time and then we must end the specific processing of your personal data.
  • Agreement – You have entered into an agreement with us. We may process your personal data to comply with the terms of the agreement.
  • Legal obligation – We as a company must handle your personal information in order to comply with other legislation.
  • Legitimate Interest – Our interest in processing your personal data is heavier than your interest and the risk of violation of your personal integrity is very small.

2.5.1 On which lawful basis do we base the processing of your personal data?

Candidates
You give your approval that we may process your personal data, for example when handling your application or if a background check is needed. Legitimate interests is also the lawful basis since processing is necessary when evaluating potential/future employees.

Suppliers and Customers
In cases where you purchase a service, we have an agreement as the lawful basis. However, if the agreement expires we still have to handle certain information regarding the purchasing party for a further seven (7) years after the performance of the service, according to Swedish law. Legal Obligation is the lawful basis in this case.

Potential customers
For marketing purposes we may process personal data of employees at a potential customer. Lawful basis is legitimate interest.

Other interest groups
The legal basis for processing personal data for this group may vary depending on the type of contact we have encountered. In most cases, we will initially use legitimate interest as a legal basis. If we see that the individual whose personal data we handle is within one of the other interest groups, the legal basis applicable to that group will apply.
