- WHY AND ACCORDING TO WHAT LEGAL BASIS DO WE PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
- Customers, partners, suppliers and potential customers
In order to enter into an agreement with you or the company you represent and to implement such an agreement and guard your/your client’s interests, Consat collects and processes personal information about you, such as name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, copies of identity documents, account number information and other billing information. We further process your information in order to be able to invoice for our work. If you, as an individual or as a representative of a sole proprietorship, are a customer of Consat, the legal basis for our processing of personal data is that it is necessary for the performance of the agreement to which you are party or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into an agreement. In the event that you do not provide your information to us, we cannot enter into an agreement.
If you are instead a representative or contact person for an organization that is a customer of Consat or another natural person that is processed within the framework of an agreement, the legal basis for our processing of personal data about you is a balance of interests, ie. that the processing is necessary for a purpose relating to our legitimate interest in maintaining and fulfilling our obligations in agreements and in customer relationships. If you do not provide your personal information, we may not be able to fulfill our obligations to the organization you represent.
Consat also processes your name and contact information, such as your email address, as well as information about the organization you represent to offer and market our services to you and the organization you represent. The legal basis for our processing of your personal data is that it is necessary for our legitimate interest in being able to market services that we believe you and your organization may be interested in. Our interest in processing your personal data in order to send offers to you takes precedence over your possible interest in protecting your privacy in light of the potential benefits that these offers bring to your organization. However, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for direct marketing.
In connection with events, among other things, we may process information about allergies that you provide to us. The processing of information about allergies is based on your consent to such processing.
Certain personal data may also be processed because Consat has a legal obligation to fulfill, for example as a result of Consat’s accounting obligation or other obligations imposed on Consat by law.
Consat processes personal information collected during your visit to our website, such as IP address, name, contact information, how you use our website and information about the organization you represent for the purpose of quality assurance and development of our business.
The legal basis for our processing of your personal data is that it is necessary for our legitimate interest in being able to ensure the quality and development of our business and meet your and your organization’s needs. Our interest in processing your personal data for these purposes takes precedence over your possible interest in protecting your privacy, e.g. in light of the potential benefits that the development of our business entails for your organization.
- Recruitment of staff
We process personal data about you within the framework of staff recruitment. The personal data we process are those that you provide in your application, e.g. CV, personal letter, grades, certificates, information from references and test results from personality tests and problem-solving tests.
The legal basis for our processing of your personal data is that it is necessary to take action before entering into an employment contract. The treatment is also necessary for our legitimate interest in communicating with you and conducting recruitments.
- HOW LONG DO WE SAVE YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
Consat never stores personal data longer than necessary for the purposes of the process. Consat therefore regular reviews stored personal data and deletes personal data that is no longer needed.
Consat stores personal data about you costumer, partner or supplier as long as there is an active agreement. After the agreement has been terminated, Consat stores personal data for as long as a legal claim can be made in connection with the agreement or to the extent that it is necessary to save the data in order to comply with legal requirements.
Consat stores personal data about you as a visitor and when recruiting until you have objected to the processing of your personal data, however, for a maximum of three years. If you object to the processing, Consat will delete your personal data as soon as possible.
- WHO HAS ACCESS TO YOUR Personal Data?
Your personal data may be transferred to and processed by third parties. These may be group companies, service providers, other legal advisers, auditors, consultants, courts, authorities, etc. Examples of situations when your personal data may be transferred to third parties when such action is required due to law, dispute, request for authority or decision, at own request alternatively when required to fulfil Consat´s legitimate interest.
Consat still remains data controller for the personal data that is transferred, while third parties depending on the circumstances, either becomes an independent data controller, joint data controller with Consat or Consat´s processer.
- WHERE AND HOW DO WE STORE PERSONAL DATA?
Consat will to the greatest extent process your personal data within the EU / EEA. Consat takes appropriate technical and organizational measures to prevent unauthorized or illegal processing and access, loss, destruction or damage to personal data, thereby ensuring an appropriate level of security.
However, your personal data may sometimes need to be transferred outside the EU/EEA. We will ensure that legal, technical and organizational measures are in place to ensure that your personal data is handled securely and with an adequate level of protection outside the EU/EEA (e.g. through standard contractual clauses). You can always contact us if you have questions about applicable protective measures.

Consat will in that case cease the processing of your data for such purposes.
