Information about Stafsjö’s processing of personal data.

Stafsjö collect and use personal data in various parts of our operations. For us it is important that you are comfortable with the way we process it.

Personal data submitted to us is processed in line with General Data Protection Regulation (EU 2016/679; GDPR) and this personal data policy.

Personal data

Personal data means all information that can be used to identify or linked to a specific individual. This can include name, phone number, address and e-mail address. The personal data may also vary depending on purpose for which it is collected and processed. In general, the processing includes data such as name, address, phone number and e-mail address.

The categories of personal data that may be processed in the context of a whistleblower case depend on what information is provided by the reporting person and on what information needs to be obtained from other people or sources of information, for example to investigate or verify the information provided by a reporting person.

  • The following categories of personal data may be processed in the context of a whistleblower case:
  • Contact details,
  • Social security number / coordination number,
  • Information on employment, e.g., position,
  • Income information, including salary and other benefits, income from capital, and business activities,
  • Information on assets and investments such as account numbers, bank account holdings, holdings of securities and real estate, etc.,
  • Membership in a trade union,
  • Sexual orientation (e.g., when reporting discrimination),
  • Religious or philosophical beliefs (e.g., when reporting discrimination),
  • Racial or ethnic origin (e.g., when reporting discrimination),
  • Political opinions (e.g., when reporting on discrimination),
  • Information on the sexual life of a natural person (e.g., when reporting harassment or abuse),
  • Health information and
  • suspected or established breaches of rules.

Given that the person responsible for personal data does not control what information is provided in the reporting channel, it is not certain that the above list is completely exhaustive.
