Data controller

For the processing that takes place within JBF's operations, JBF is considered the data controller (AB Järnbrukförnödenheter, Registration No 556014-7083, Box 1721, SE-111 87 Stockholm, Sweden).

Personal data

Personal data is the data about you as an individual that we collect and store for various purposes as part of our daily operations.

The type of personal data that we collect and why we do this

Contacts at costumers and suppliers

In order to have effective communication with you as a customer or supplier about deliveries, order status, answers to questions, etc., we store your contact details related to the service in the company you work for, for example name, email address and phone number.

Sometimes additional information may be processed, for example if you have a user account with us, we will also process your login details.

Digital visitors

When it comes to digital visitors visiting the website, we collect navigational data such as IP address, cookies, session identifiers, browser type, web pages viewed and links clicked.

Other persons

For the other persons we have contact with, we mainly process your contact details such as your name, your e-mail address and/or your telephone number. We process your personal data in order to provide the services or information you have requested (for example, participation in a training) or when it is necessary to fulfill an agreement with you and/or your organization.

If JBF should process your personal data for any purpose that requires your consent, we will obtain your consent in advance. Some personal data may be mandatory to provide, for example in order for us to provide a service or fulfill another request from you. This will then be stated or made clear in connection with the data being collected.

From which sources do we obtain personal data?

Collection of your personal data mainly takes place when you contact us and enter your details, for example in connection with registering to participate in a training course, asking for information or ordering services and/or products from us.

With whom we may share your personal data

In some situations, it is necessary for us to engage other parties in order to carry out our work. We may therefore share your data

  • with trusted service providers for the purposes stated above, eg to provide IT services. However, these providers act on JBF's behalf and JBF is responsible for the use of your data;
  • with our owners/customers and suppliers to the extent that it is required for the cooperation between the organizations to function;
  • when we are obliged by law or authority decision to provide information to, for example, the police, other authorities and similar legal bodies;
  • when JBF deems it necessary to protect JBF's rights, protect your safety and rights or investigate fraud and similar actions.

Where we process your personal data

We always aim for your personal data to be processed within Sweden.

How do we handle Swedish ID numbers?

As far as possible, we avoid processing Swedish ID numbers. In some cases, however, it is justified mainly because we need to have secure identification. 

How is your personal data protected?

We work actively to ensure that personal data is handled securely. This applies both through technical and organizational protective measures.

How long we save your personal data?

We never save your personal data longer than is necessary for the respective purpose. We have developed cleaning procedures to ensure that personal data is not saved longer than is necessary for the specific purpose. How long this is varies depending on the reason for the processing. Due to legislation, certain data in the bookkeeping, for example, needs to be saved for at least seven years.

What are your rights as a data subject?

Right to rectification
