  1. Who is responsible for processing your personal data?

EIM Scandinavia AB (referred to in the following as “we”, is the responsible party in the sense of the EU Basic Data Protection Ordinance (DATASKYDDSFÖRORDNINGEN (GDPR).

  1. Data Protection Officer

You can consult our Data Protection Officer for all questions relating to your personal data and the protection of your rights under the DATASKYDDSFÖRORDNINGEN (GDPR); you can reach our officer Beatrice Nordwall under +46 8 22 22 10 / info@eim.se.

  1. For what purposes and on what legal basis do we process personal data?

We process personal data about you for the purpose of your application for a contractual relationship, to the extent that this is necessary for the decision about establishing a contractual relationship with us. Furthermore, we can process personal data about you to the extent that this is necessary to defend against asserted legal claims against us arising from the application process. The legal basis for that is DATASKYDDSFÖRORDNINGEN (GDPR); the justified interest is for example an obligation to provide evidence in a proceeding under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

To the extent that a contractual relationship between you and us is established, we are allowed to continue processing the personal data we have already received from you according to DATASKYDDSFÖRORDNINGEN (GDPR) for the purposes of the contractual relationship, if this is necessary for the implementation or termination of the contractual relationship or to exercise or fulfil the rights and obligations of the party representing the interests of the employee deriving from a wage agreement, an employment or service agreement (collective bargaining agreement).

  1. What categories of personal data do we process?

We process data that is related to your application. These can be general data about your person (like name, address and contact data), information about your professional qualification and academic education or information about your professional continuing education or other information that you have communicated to us in connection with your application.

Additionally, we can process job-related information that you have made publicly accessible, such as a profile in Social Media Networks.

  1. Who will receive my data?

We can send your personal data to companies that are affiliated with us in the EIM Corporate Group, to the extent that this is permissible under the purposes and legal bases presented under No.  3. Additionally, personal data are processed on commission for us based on contracts under Art. 28 DATASKYDDSFÖRORDNINGEN (GDPR), and this especially through the hosting provider or service provider for employment applicant management systems.

Transmission to a third foreign country outside of the EU or EER is not planned.

  1. How long will your data be stored?

We store your personal data, for as long as is needed for the decision about your application. To the extent that no contractual relationship is established between you and us, we can continue to store data to the extent that this is required for further pursuit of a contract or to defend against possible legal claims. After a period of two years passes, you will be automatically asked to consent to continued storage of your data.

  1. What rights to you have?

As an applicant with us you have, depending on the situation, the following data protection rights for whose exercise you can contact us or our Data Protection Officer at any time under the data given in No.  1 and 2:

a. Disclosure

You have the right to demand disclosure of the personal data that we process as well as to access your personal data and/or copies of this data. This includes disclosures of the purpose for which it is used, the category of the data used, its recipients and parties authorised to have access as well as, if possible, the planned duration of data storage or, if this is not possible, the criteria for setting this period.

b. Correction, deletion or restriction of data processing

You have the right to demand that we immediately correct any inaccurate personal data about you. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, you have the right to demand completion of incomplete personal data– also by means of a supplemental declaration.

c. Right to refuse

To the extent that the processing of your personal data proceeds based on DATASKYDDSFÖRORDNINGEN (GDPR), you have the right for reasons that arise from your particular situation, to object at any time to the processing of this data. We will then cease processing this personal data unless we can prove urgent grounds for processing that deserve legal protection which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or if the continued processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

d. Right to revoke

If processing is based on your consent, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time, without this in any way impacting the legality of processing completed through the date of revocation based on the consent previously given. To this end you can contact us or our Data Protection Officer at any time under the information given above.

e. Right to Deletion

You have the right to demand that we immediately delete your personal data and we are obligated to immediately delete personal data insofar as one of the following grounds applies:

  • The personal data are no longer needed for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed
  • You submit an objection to continued processing in accord with Number 8.c above and there are no reasons for continued processing that take precedence.
  • The personal data were being illegally processed.
  • The personal data must be deleted to fulfil a legal obligation to which we are subject under the law of the European Union its member states.

This does not apply if processing is necessary:

  • To fulfil a legal obligation which we are subject to under the law of the European Union or its member states.
  • To assert, exercises or defend legal claims.

f. Right to restrict data processing

You have the right to demand that we restrict data processing if one of the following preconditions is met:

  • You dispute the accuracy of the personal data and that for a period that makes it possible for us to check the accuracy of the personal data;
  • The processing is illegal and you do not want to have your personal data deleted but instead demand the use of your personal data be restricted;
  • We no longer need the personal data for the purposes of processing but you need them for the purposes of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims, or
  • You have submitted an objection to the processing under Number 8.c above, as long as it is not clear whether our justifiable grounds outweigh yours.

If processing is restricted in accord with this Letter e, this personal data may–apart from your own storage –only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or one of its member states.

If you have already affected a restriction on the processing, you will be notified before the restriction is lifted.

g. Right to regulatory complaint

Without prejudice to any other legal remedy under administrative law or the courts, you have the right to submit a complaint with a regulatory authority, especially in the EU member state of your habitual residence, your workplace or the place of the suspected violation, if you are of the opinion of that the processing of your personal data violates the DATASKYDDSFÖRORDNINGEN (GDPR).

  1. Compulsory disclosure of personal data

Disclosure of personal data is neither legally nor contractually required, nor are you obligated to disclose personal data. However, disclosure of personal data is required in order to conclude a contract for a contractual employment relationship with us. This means, to the extent that you do not provide us with any personal data in an application, we will not enter into a contractual employment relationship with you.

  1. No automated decision making

No automated decision making in the sense of Art. 22 DATASKYDDSFÖRORDNINGEN (GDPR) will take place meaning that the decision about your application is not solely based on automated processing.
