Privacy policy

Personal data protection is about the right to privacy and the right to decide on your own information. The General Data Protection Regulation is a law aimed at protecting individuals against the violation of privacy through the processing of personal data. StS gruppen undertakes to safeguard the privacy of our employees and everyone we do business with when processing personal information.

The Managing Director has overall responsibility for the processing of personal data, but the daily follow-up of processing and compliance is delegated to the HSEQ manager

We process:

  • Personal information about employees for the purpose of fulfilling obligations under law and agreement
  • Personal information about course participants with the purpose of registering certified competence and invoicing
  • Personal information about contacts from customers and suppliers with the purpose of fulfilling and following up contracts
  • Personal information about contacts from potential customers, suppliers and other stakeholders for the purpose of future partnership or fulfillment of other duties.

Processing of personal data and storage time

We will only use personal information for the purpose we have described in the business and as soon as we no longer have required purpose for treatment of the information, it shall be deleted.

Purpose for treatment

Our processing of personal information about employees is based on both legal obligations and legitimate interest. The legitimate interest is based on the need to process personal information with regard to personnel management and personnel mobilization.

Our processing of personal information about course participants is based on legitimate interest. We need to process the information to perform the service by registering certified competence and invoicing external course customers.

Our processing of information about current and potential customers and suppliers, as well as other stakeholders, is based on legitimate interest. This means that we need to keep in touch to effectively track up offers, orders and deliveries or other agreements or obligations.

Recipients of personal information

As our business entails travelling for a large part of our employees, we need to share personal information with our customers in order to mobilize our employees for different projects.

When course participants have completed courses, personal information is reported to the relevant certification body, such as SOFT Certification, for certification of personnel and issue of course certificates.

If it is appropriate to share personal information about employees with recipients in countries outside the EEA, this is done in accordance with Chapter V of the Regulation “Transfer of Personal Information to Third States or International Organizations”.

Personal information about contacts with both current and potential customers, suppliers or stakeholders is not disclosed to recipients outside of the business.

Data processors

External data processors may process personal data on behalf of us. Suppliers of IT systems, systems for personnel management and travel reservations are examples of this. In cooperation with such processors, we will, in accordance with law, ensure personal information and the processing of these.

What are your rights?

As registered you are entitled to:

  • Request access to the information stored about you
  • Ask for correction of information that is incorrect
  • Request deletion of information
  • Ask for limitation of treatment
