What is personal data and what is a processing of personal data?

Personal data are all kinds of information that can be used, directly or indirectly, to identify a physical person that is alive. For example, images and sound recordings that are processed in a computer can be personal data even if no names are mentioned. Encrypted data and different types of electronic identities (such as IP addresses) are considered personal data if they can be linked to a physical person.

Processing of personal data is then how the personal data is used. Any action taken with personal data is a treatment, regardless of whether it is performed, automated or not. Examples of common treatments are collection, registration, organization, structuring, storage, processing, transfer and deletion.

We get the data from you when you are applying to Looklet. After that we collect data from you when we need it in order to move on in the selection process.

Who are we sharing your data with?

Sometimes it is necessary to share your data with third parties in order for us to fulfil our

obligations or have our business work smoothly. When we share your data with a third party,

they become so called “Personal Data Processors” (SE: Personuppgiftsbiträden) for us. A

according to our instructions. We have Personuppgiftsbiträden who help us with:

1) Administer the recruitment process (TeamTailor)

When your personal information is shared with the Personal Data Processor, it is compatible

with the purposes of which we have collected the information. We make sure that the Personal

Data Processor can provide and guarantee security and confidentiality of personal data by

having written contracts with them where they guarantee security of the personal information

processed, and to comply with our security requirements and limitations regarding

international transfer of personal information.

Companies that are Personal Data Responsible even though they get the data from us

Sometimes we need to share your information with companies that independently are

responsible for the data they treat about you even though it was provided by us and we don’t

have any agreement with them.

That means that the company is personally responsible for how the data is treated and that

we do not control how it is used.

other authorities) if we are required by law or in suspicion of crime.

When your personal data is shared with a company that is personally responsible for personal

data, it is that company’s privacy policy that is applied.

However, in case of systematic maintenance and support we may have to transfer the data to a non-EU/EES country.

With the exception for Name, Username and contact details in case it’s about setting up an account in order to do work.

We never save your personal information longer than what is necessary for each purpose. See more about the specific storage period for each purpose.


As registered, what rights do you have?

Right to access. If you would like to have a deeper insight about what personal information we process about you, you may request access to the information (the information is provided in a registry drawing indicating purpose categories of personal data, categories of recipients, storage periods, information about and where the data has been collected). Please note that if we receive a request for access, we might ask for additional information to ensure efficiency of how the request is handled and that the information is provided to the correct person.

Right to rectification. You may request for your personal information to be corrected if the data is incorrect. Within the stated purpose, you also have the right to complement any incomplete data.

Right to deletion. You may ask to delete your personal information that we process if:

● You oppose an interest deliberation we have based on legitimate interest and your objection is superior to our legitimate interest.

● Personal data is processed illegally.
● Personal data must be erased to comply with a legal obligation we must include.

Keep in mind that we may have the right to deny your request if there is any legal obligations that prevent us from immediately deleting certain personal information. These obligations derive from accounting and tax legislation, banking and labour legislation etc.. It may also be possible that our process is necessary for us to determine, enforce or defend legal claims. If we are prevented to meet a request of erasure, we will instead block the personal data from being used for purposes other than the purpose that prevents the requested deletion.

Right to restriction. You are entitled to request a limited processing of your personal data. If you oppose that the personal data we process is correct, you may request limited treatment during the time we make sure that the information processed is correct. If we no longer need the personal information for the stated purposes, but you need them to determine, enforce or defend legal claims, you may request limited processing of our data. This means that you can request that we do not delete your personal information.

If you oppose to an interest bearing of legitimate interest that we have made as a legal basis for a purpose, you may request limited treatment for the time we need to evaluate whether our legitimate interests overweigh your interest of getting you personal data deleted.

If the usage has been limited in accordance with any of the situations above, we may in addition to the actual storage, process the data to determine, enforce or defend legal claims, to protect someone else’s rights or if you have given your consent.

Right to object to certain treatments. You are always entitled to object to all processing of personal data based on a balance of interest.

Legitimate interest: In cases where we use a legitimate interest as a legal basis for a purpose, you are entitled to object to the usage. In order to continue processing your personal information after such objection, we need to display a compelling legitimate reason for the current usage that overweighs your interest, rights or freedom. Otherwise we may only process the personal data to determine, exercise or defend legal claims.

How do we protect your personal information?

data transfer. If our right to process your personal information is based either on your

consent or of an agreement with you,

treatment such as unauthorized access, loss, destruction or damage. Only those who actually need to process your personal information to fulfil our stated purposes have access to them.
