We may also process other personal information about you that you provide to us as a customer.
Personal information we have collected from you or a third party
When you submit a vehicle to us for service or repair, we may collect registration numbers, insurance cover and information stored in the vehicle’s computer. It is information that is mainly of a technical nature, eg. error codes and service history relating to the vehicle. We may also collect data on completed troubleshooting and what work has been done, including any products that have been repaired, replaced or installed.
When you enter into a service agreement with us, we may collect information about your purchase, your service or repair, payment and information about the vehicle’s chassis number or so-called. VIN number. We may also process your personal information which we will have access to through searches in the Swedish Transport Agency’s road traffic register, primarily contact information and registration number.
The personal data mentioned above may be processed by you even if someone else submits your vehicle to us for repair or service on your behalf. If you submit a vehicle that someone else is registered as the owner of or as a representative of a company, we treat your name, your social security number and your contact information.

2. Objectives and legal basis for the treatment of your personal data
The legal basis for the processing of personal data is the Data Protection Regulation (EU 2016/679) Article 6 (1) (a), (b), (c) and (f). For the following purposes, we treat your personal data to fulfill our agreement or take action that you request before entering into an agreement:
– If you as a customer or representative of a company make a purchase, submit a vehicle for service or repair, we treat your name, personal number, registration number or other identification number on the vehicle, your customer number, your vehicle number, your contact and address details and your card number in order to administer our customer relationship including your payment. We also handle these details to fulfill our obligations arising from the agreements you have entered into with us and to provide you with the information about the products and services that you have requested from us, eg. to send service reminders during an ongoing service agreement the way you have chosen, ie. via SMS, mail or postal mailing. Processing of information stored in the vehicle’s computer may need to be processed in order to perform service and maintenance or to be able to do troubleshooting and determine and correct faults on the vehicle.
– If you request a quotation from us, we will treat your name, your contact details and details of the quotation during the period of validity of the quotation in order to be able to contact you to follow up the quotation and take action at your request before any agreement is entered.
– In order to handle any complaints or to be able to fulfill any warranty obligations that follow from our agreement with you or the company that you represent, we treat your name, your contact details, the registration number or other identification number on the vehicle, details of your purchase and completed troubleshooting and the work done, including information on any vehicles, parts or products that have been repaired, replaced or installed.
– In order to be able to determine your identity and request credit checks when this is required under the agreement, we treat information about your name and your social security number and information about your financial situation. The processing of your social security number is clearly justified with regard to the importance of a secure identification. The information is a contractual requirement and if the information stated above is not provided to us, we are not able to fulfill our agreement or fulfill our obligations in relation to you.
For the following purposes, we treat your personal data on the basis of a balance of interests:
– If you request a quotation from us, we will treat your name, your contact details and information about the quotation with the support of our legitimate interest in being able to facilitate you as a potential customer and to send marketing to you. The purpose of the treatment is to be able to contact you and follow up the quotation and send direct marketing via e-mail, sms and postal mailings so that you can get an updated quotation with the same information and options as for the quotation’s issue. This is because it is an extensive work to produce a quote for a vehicle, with options, models and payment options.
– We treat your name and your contact details such as e-mail, phone number and address to be able to communicate with you as a customer or representative of the customer by sending direct marketing and newsletters, reminders of service and customer surveys by mail, email or SMS. Our legitimate interest is to be able to communicate with you who previously made a purchase.
– We treat your name and contact information to be able to communicate with you as a potential customer by sending direct marketing and newsletters via mail, e-mail or SMS. This applies provided that you have provided your personal data voluntarily, eg. in connection with a customer evening or the like, or that we have collected your contact information as a representative of a company or organization. Our legitimate interest in processing your personal data is to be able to communicate with you as a potential customer for marketing purposes.
If you submit the vehicle on behalf of someone else or enter into an agreement with us as a representative of a company, we may process information about your name, your contact and address information and information about the vehicle to the extent necessary to fulfill our commitments in relation to our customer. Our legitimate interest in processing your personal information is to be able to communicate with you as a contact person and to follow up who submitted the vehicle with us.
– We handle data that is linked to the vehicle, eg details of completed faults and any previous work, including information on any parts or products that have been repaired, replaced or installed to perform safe repair and service on the vehicle. The processing of such data is done for safety reasons so that the correct repair and / or service can be performed on the vehicle. We treat these data for our legitimate interest in being able to demonstrate that we meet the requirements of each vehicle manufacturer, by being able to see which previous measures have been carried out for safety reasons and for facilitating the owners of the vehicle during service.
– In addition to the processing of your personal data as stated above, we also perform treatment that is necessary to comply with applicable law, regulation or governmental decisions. E.g. We save information about your agreement with us and purchase history to the extent necessary to comply with applicable accounting law and tax legislation.

We deal with job applications we receive regarding a particular position or an open job application based on consent. When applying for a service, the recruitment of the specified contact person is handled in the ad. Some recruitments are handled by more people than the contact person in the ad. The candidate can also be moved between different recruitment steps to make it easier for the recruiter. Recruiters can also download a list of candidates with names, phone numbers and mail and create a file containing the candidates’ attached documents (CV, personal letter, portfolio, etc.), which is often done prior to an interview. Recruiters can communicate with the candidates, eg. when updating the recruitment process. Employee saves, uses and possibly disseminates your personal data in order to process your application, subscription and / or contact, and thereby becomes the personal data controller and is committed to not disclosing your personal data to unauthorized persons. However, this does not mean that they will not share your personal information with others who need them to administer your application / contact (eg external recruitment companies). Your personal data will not be distributed outside the EU / EEA. All applications are handled manually and do not go through any automated profiling.
