What your information is used for:
All information, such as the contact information, any additional services, and the information we otherwise receive from you, is stored primarily to manage your customer relationship. This includes services and deliveries, invoices, handling payments and communication of useful information and assistance when applicable. The information also enables us to analyse, adapt and improve our services and delivery/offers and our communication with you.
Length of information retention period
We store personal information only as long as necessary for the purposes described in the above section or to comply with specific legal requirements. Consequently, the storage time for different types of information may vary. The Accounting Act allows invoice information to be stored for at least 5 years. We store your contact information as long as you are a customer of ours (and a certain period of time, for example, to provide you with the best possible service if you choose to come back to us). For the various other types of information (such as email and chat log from customer service dialog), the information retention time may be shorter.

In connection with any reorganization, restructuring, merger, sale or other transfer of assets, we transmit information, including personal information, provided that the recipient agrees to respect your personal information in a manner that is consistent with our Privacy Statement.
When we pass the personal data to countries outside the EEA (EU) and other regions with comprehensive privacy data protection laws, we ensure that the information has been transferred in accordance with this Privacy Statement.
