When you visit our website and 'my pages', some personal data may also be collected automatically from your mobile device or computer through the use of so-called cookies. You can read more about cookies in the section "What are coockies and hos are they used?".

How and why is your personal data processed?

In order for us to offer our products and services and otherwise conduct our business, we need to process your personal data. We process your personal data in order to:

  • Managing and delivering purchases – We process your contact and delivery details to deliver goods to you that you order on the website or buy in our stores. The processing is necessary for the performance of our obligations under our Terms and Conditions of Purchase, which you have entered into with us.

  • Completing purchases in our stores – We process payment information and other personal data to the extent necessary to complete purchases and to process your claims, returns and refunds in our stores.

  • Provide customer support and handle returns – We process contact details and other information you provide in communications with us to provide customer support. The processing is necessary for the performance of our obligations under our Terms of Purchase, which you have entered into with us. If you are not a customer of ours, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in providing information about our products and services to potential customers.

  • Give you access to 'my pages' – We process your login details, your personal identity number and information about your device to give you access to your customer profile where you can see your previous orders, place product reviews and leave ratings. The processing is based on consent and you can withdraw your consent for the processing at any time by requesting the deletion of your customer data.

  • Provide you with access to our website – We process information about your device and IP address to provide secure access to our website. The processing is based on our legitimate interest to provide a secure and functioning website to provide our services and products.

  • Request customer reviews – We process your email address and order information to request customer reviews regarding completed purchases. The processing is based on our legitimate interest to monitor customer satisfaction.

  • Develop our products and offers – We process information you provide in customer reviews, information about your device and how you use our website in order to develop and improve the online shopping experience and the website's features and content. The processing is based on your consent.

  • Marketing our products and services –We process our products and services through targeted marketing on other websites and in mobile applications through the use of cookies. The processing is based on your consent. Read more about cookies in the section "What are cookies and how are they used?"

  • Sending newsletters – We process your email address and order information to send newsletters via email about updates and offers. The processing is based on our legitimate interest to market our services to existing customers. If you are not a customer of ours, the processing will only take place if you have consented to receive newsletters. You can unsubscribe from newsletters at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link in the email.

  • CCTV – We process your personal data through video recording from CCTV inside and/or outside our stores. The processing is based on our legitimate interest in preventing, deterring and investigating crime and increasing the safety of our visitors.

  • Bookkeeping – We process your order data for our bookkeeping purposes. The processing is based on our legal obligation to keep accounting data under the Accounting Act.

In addition to the above purposes, your personal data may be processed to comply with legal requirements or to protect our rights and property and to prevent fraud or other unlawful activity that may harm us or our customers.

How long is your personal data stored?

Your data is only stored for as long as is justified by the underlying purpose of the processing. The length of time we keep your personal data may therefore vary. As a general rule, we only store personal data relating to active customers or when there are legal requirements or other compelling reasons for storage. An active customer is one who has made a purchase with us or logged into your member account within the last 24 months. Please note that we are required by law to retain certain personal data, such as accounting information, even after you are no longer an active customer.

Who can access your personal data?

Your personal data may be transferred to or shared with selected companies that provide various types of services to Nordiska Galleriet. We use subcontractors and third-party providers to, for example, develop and provide the website and other IT solutions, deliver goods, provide secure payment methods, maintain the security of our business and keep visitors safe, and to market our services and products. In order for these suppliers to perform their work, we may need to share personal data with them.

Some of the suppliers are so-called subcontractors, which means that they process personal data on our behalf and according to our instructions. The providers are only allowed access to your personal data if the sharing of personal data is necessary for the performance of the service in question and the personal data may only be processed in accordance with our instructions, which reflect this privacy policy.

Some of the providers are independent service providers who have an independent data protection responsibility for the personal data they process to provide the service in question. For example, we use the payment service provider Klarna on our website to offer secure payment methods. Klarna is independently responsible for the processing of personal data in connection with payment in accordance with the Klarna Privacy Policy. We also use independent shipping companies such as DHL, which are responsible for the processing of personal data during delivery in accordance with their respective privacy policies. In our business, we use payment solutions from payment service providers who are independently responsible for the processing of your personal data in connection with payment.

In connection with the acquisition or divestment of all or part of Nordiska Galleriet's business, your personal data would be shared or transferred to the acquiring or merged entity. In such cases, your personal data will continue to be processed in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

We may also provide necessary information to public authorities, to protect legal interests and obligations or if you have consented to it.

How do we protect your personal data?

We take a number of security measures to protect your personal data from unauthorised access, unauthorised processing and from accidental loss, destruction or damage. Our security measures include, for example, restricting access to your personal data, meaning that access is limited only to staff who need access to the data in order to perform their duties.

Furthermore, your personal data is protected against unauthorised processing by being processed only for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy and only by persons or subcontractors who have a contract with us.

Furthermore, we apply a number of technical security measures to protect your personal data against loss, destruction and accidental damage by, among other things, storing backup copies on back-up systems, pseudonymisation and regular security tests.

Where do we process your data?

Your personal data may be processed in a country outside the European Economic Area (EEA). For example, we use IT service providers located in countries outside the EEA. When transferring personal data to a country outside the EEA, we take appropriate legal, technical and organisational security measures to ensure that the personal data is processed according to an equivalent level of protection as within the EEA. Such measures include, inter alia, the inclusion of the European Commission's model clauses together with additional safeguards in the event that the recipient country's data protection regime has not been recognised as ensuring an adequate level of protection for personal data processing.
