Networking, Marketing and Knowledge Exchange

Our Purpose for Processing Your Personal Data

We process your personal data to enable networking, marketing, and knowledge exchange.

We process your personal data to maintain our contacts and networks, and to keep our knowledge and information about you updated and current.

We process your personal data to send out newsletters based on the subscriptions you have signed up for, and to promote our services and events.

How We Process Your Personal Data

We collect and collate personal data based, among other things, on the type of events, networks, knowledge, and newsletters we believe you are interested in receiving information about, as well as the events and meetings you have attended with us in the past.

In connection with the sending of newsletters, invitations, etc. we use external suppliers for technical functionality within the framework of the stated purposes, such as sending e-mails. We have signed personal data processing agreements with our external suppliers that instruct them how they may process the personal data in question.

When you contact us in any other way, such as by e-mail or telephone, we store your data in our systems to maintain our contacts and networks.

The Personal Data We Process

We mainly process your name, e-mail address, phone number, organisational role, and organisation. Sometimes additional information may be processed, e.g. if you are a member of parliament or a local politician, but only if you can be considered to have published the information yourself.

Legal Basis – Justified Interest

In the processing described above, we take into account and weigh your interest in privacy in relation to our interest and purpose (as stated above) in carrying out the processing. We then balance these interests, taking into account both positive and negative effects, and assess whether our interest is legitimate.

Collection and Disclosure

The personal data we have about you is primarily collected from you. We share the personal data within the network when it is deemed to create member benefits, and within the framework of the purposes stated above. Otherwise, we only share the data with such suppliers that are needed to carry out the processing, and within the framework of the purposes stated above. For example:

  • information and marketing (via web/communication agencies, external providers for technical functionality and related distribution),
  • IT services (companies that manage the necessary operation, technical support and maintenance of our IT solutions).

Storage Period

We store your personal data only for as long as we deem it to be justified with regard to the above-mentioned legal basis and purpose.
