- We use your personal data to manage and complete your purchases and deliveries, offer you various payment solutions, provide delivery notifications via SMS, email or mail, manage any returns and manage your user account on our web platforms in order to provide you with a personal experience.
- We can also make your experience smoother, for example by automatically filling in your registration information (for example, your profession) if you have already entered it in a different context and where it is saved in our CRM tool.
- We can use the information we have about you to develop, test and improve our webshop, including by conducting surveys and improving the customer experience and testing new features.
- We use the information we have about you to send you marketing communications and offers, announce winners in competitions, communicate with you about our products and news, and notify you of our policies and terms.

Your information is primarily used by Fristads AB to fulfill our obligations to you as a customer and to improve your experience with us. In certain situations, your data will also be shared with other members of the Group when required for delivery purposes.
In addition, we share your personal information with suppliers and service providers who support our business and business processes, such as e-commerce platform, IT systems, CRM and marketing systems, media agencies, technical providers for the distribution of physical and digital direct marketing, behavioral analysis in our platforms and product/sales statistics, delivery and distribution of products that you have purchased, or execution of payment via external payment services, if enabled.
Fristads AB is only shared with companies that can provide sufficient guarantees of security and confidentiality for personal information and we will never resell your information to third parties and will never do so. If our ownership changes, we will transfer the information about you to the new owner.
Fristads AB strives to ensure that your personal data is processed as much as possible within the European Economic Area (EEA) and all our own IT systems, but can also be transferred and processed in a country outside the EEA (so-called "third country"). Such transfer is made only to the recipient country with an adequate level of protection and in accordance with the legislation in force.
Tools used for statistics and analysis are configured as far as possible to protect privacy and to keep data within the EEA.
We collect personal data that you send to us when you make purchases from Fristads both through our webshop and through other channels, when you fill out a form or participate in any competitions.
We may also collect certain personal data from external partners such as address data from public registers and creditworthiness data from credit rating agencies, banks or credit reference agencies.
Your personal information is stored within the EEA on internal systems that are either owned directly by Fristads AB or owned by members of the same group as Fristads AB.
We store your personal data until it no longer fulfils the purpose in accordance with your consent and in accordance with applicable law.

You have the right to request rectification of any incorrect personal data and to supplement incomplete personal data.
You may have the right to request that Fristads delete the personal data we process about you. In the following situations, this may be relevant
- If the data is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected for.
- If the processing is based on your consent and you withdraw that consent.

You have the right to object to the processing of your data that we perform, but you must specify which processing you object to.
You have the right not to be subject to fully automated decision-making, including profiling, if such decision-making has legal consequences or materially affects you.

You can also object to treatment based on a balance of interests. If you object to such processing, we may only continue to process the data if it can be demonstrated that there are compelling legitimate reasons why the data must be processed that outweigh the interests of the individual or if the processing takes place for the purpose of establishing, exercising or defending legal claims.
In some cases, you have the right to have your personal information provided in a structured, simple and machine-readable format and that this personal information is transferred from one controller to another without hindrance.
