What is GDPR?
The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a regulation from the EU that came into effect on May 25, 2018. The GDPR provides you as an individual with strong protection and numerous rights concerning a company's handling of your personal data.

What is personal data, and what does the processing of personal data entail?

Personal data is any type of information that directly or indirectly can be linked to a living individual. For instance, images and sound recordings can be personal data, even if no names are mentioned. Encrypted data and various electronic identities, such as IP addresses, are also personal data if they can be linked to physical individuals.

By processing, we mean all actions and handling involving personal data. This can include collection, reading, registration, storage, processing, and distribution.

Where do we collect personal data?
We collect your personal data directly from you when you contact us, apply for jobs with us, and other activities. Personal data is also collected from you when you establish or wish to establish a contract with Tyréns.

We may also receive your personal data from others, such as your employer, Tyréns contract partners, or other companies within the Tyréns Group. We may also collect personal data from publicly accessible private and public registers.

What personal data do we collect?
The personal data we collect usually depends on why you contact us at Tyréns. Tyréns processes personal data about you if you are an individual, a current or potential customer, subcontractor, or supplier to Tyréns.

The personal data that we process includes basic information such as name, title or position, CV, personal identification number; contact details such as email address, postal address, and telephone number. We also process financial information such as billing details, personal data in connection with events, and online identifiers such as IP.

  • The processing is necessary to meet our legal obligations and comply with applicable laws and regulations (for example, accounting laws),
  • The processing is necessary for purposes based on our legitimate interest (for example, business development, recruitment, marketing or running our business - provided that Tyréns' interest outweighs your interest in protection of personal privacy),
  • The processing is necessary for us to establish, assert or defend legal claims in connection with disputes, or
  • Consent (for example, at events and subscription of newsletters or other information from Tyréns).

Who might we share the information with?
To fulfill our obligations, your personal data may be shared with and transferred to other companies within the Tyréns Group.

Your personal data may also be disclosed if it is necessary to comply with applicable laws or government requirements, to safeguard Tyréns' legal interests, or to detect, prevent, or draw attention to fraud, technical or security issues.

Where do we process your personal data?
As your security is crucial to us, Tyréns always strives to process personal data within the EU/EEA. Tyréns' own IT systems are within this area, and we aim to ensure that any information that may be sent to other systems is transferred and processed solely within the EU/EEA.

If personal data is transferred outside the EU/EEA, Tyréns will take appropriate and necessary protective measures to ensure the protection of your personal data and the preservation of your rights and freedoms.

How long will we keep your data?
Your personal data will be stored for as long as it is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the personal data was collected in accordance with this Privacy guideline.
