PRIVACY POLICY (HARJU ELEKTER Group general principles for processing of personal data)

AS Harju Elekter, registry code 10029524, address Paldiski mnt 31, Keila 76607, Estonia.

These general guidelines lay down the principles for collection, processing and use of personal data within the Harju Elekter Group (hereafter referred to as ‘Harju Elekter’).

Collection and use of personal data

Harju Elekter collects personal data (e.g. name, Swedish personal identity number, email address, phone number, bank details) that has been voluntarily given in connection with the providing of services, including business transactions with customers and the delivery of goods (e.g. inquiries, orders, complaints, applications and information submitted via the website or in salesrooms). Harju Elekter also collects contact information from business cards that have been received in business contexts.

If you visit our offices or salesrooms, you can appear in the field of view of our security cameras, the purpose of which is to protect individuals and property.

For us to process your personal data, there must be support for this in the applicable data protection regulations (GDPR) – a so-called ‘legal basis’. There are a number of legal bases on which to rely; however, all processing of personal data at Harju Elekter is based on the following two: “Consent” or “Fulfilment of contract”. In short, these mean that either (1) you have consented to the processing of your personal data or (2) the processing of your personal data is necessary for us to be able to fulfil a contract with you.

Consent

By registering on any of the Harju Elekter Group’s websites, continuing to use our services or visit our websites, or registering with or transferring your personal data to any of the companies of the Harju Elekter Group through another communication channel, you agree that you have read this privacy policy and agree to your personal data being processed as described herein. If you do not agree with the privacy policy, you should refrain from using our services. Please note that the terms of the privacy policy may change at any time. You should therefore read through these terms at regular intervals to ensure that you are satisfied with any changes that may have been made.

Purpose of processing personal data

Harju Elekter’s purpose in the collection and use of personal data is to give our clients access to information and services from any of the companies of the Harju Elekter Group or from a third party approved by Harju Elekter. Above all, Harju Elekter uses your personal data to fulfil, improve, and tailor the company’s commitments, products, and services, manage subscriptions and customer relationships and provide you with marketing and direct marketing both via post and digitally.

Sharing of personal data

In order to fulfil the purposes stated above, your personal data will be shared with all of the companies in the Group. We also share your personal data with service providers and partner companies to the extent necessary for operating Harju Elekter (IT, marketing, and ancillary services) and to improve the quality of our services. We will also share your personal data if we are required by law or we believe that access, storage, or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property, or safety of Harju Elekter.

Harju Elekter also collects personal data about subscribers through our newsletter. We collect the personal data that the subscriber themselves provides – email address and, in the cases in which the subscriber chooses to do so, their first and last names. We also collect data regarding how subscribers use our newsletters. We use the submitted personal data in order to be able to fulfil our contract to send newsletters to subscribers.
