How we use personal data (purpose of processing) and legal basis for the processing (why the processing is necessary)

We process your personal data to provide our services and products, to fulfil relevant agreements with you and to otherwise administer our business relationship with you. The legal basis we rely on is to fulfil our contractual obligations towards you, to comply with applicable laws and to pursue our legitimate interests.

We will not use your personal data for any other purposes than those set out in this Privacy Policy unless we inform you prior to initiating any processing for new purposes or a purpose that is compatible with the purpose for which we collected the personal data, all in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.

We always process personal data in accordance with applicable law, and we have implemented appropriate security measures compliant with local information security requirements to protect your personal data from misuse, unauthorised access or disclosure, loss, alteration or destruction.

We will retain your personal data for no longer than permitted under applicable law after which time your personal data will be destroyed or deleted. We only retain your personal data to allow us to process the payment link and ensure compliance with our legal requirements.

We do not carry out any such processing that is defined as solely automated decision making, including profiling, under the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) that has legal effects or otherwise similarly significantly affects you.

Third parties

We may share your personal data with our service providers (e.g. those storing your personal data or processing the payment of your payment link) in connection with the above purposes. This will be done confidentially and only to the extent permitted by applicable laws.

We do not process personal data obtained from third parties.

We share personal data with iZettle AB, Regeringsgatan 59, 111 56, Stockholm, Sweden in its capacity of personal data controller.

If we share your personal data with data processors we only share them for purposes compatible with the purposes for which we have collected the data.

Third country transfer

Some of the service providers we use may be located outside of the EEA, including the US. Some of these countries may not have equivalent data protection laws to those which apply in your country.

However, when we transfer your data, we will comply with all applicable laws in respect of such transfer, including taking steps to keep it secure, and ensure that appropriate safeguards are in place to ensure there is adequate protection.

If we sell all or part of our business, or make a sale or transfer of assets, including a sale in bankruptcy or are otherwise involved in a merger or business transfer, we may transfer your personal data to a third party as part of that transaction.

  • for personal data that you provided to us, and
  • if the legal basis for the processing of the personal data is the fulfilment of contract or consent.
