THE DATA PROTECTION

At CONSTANTLY OF SWEDEN, data protection is not just about safeguarding your information. It’s also about making it easy for you to control your data, because after all, your data truly belongs to you.

Below you can find more information about how we handle your personal data, what measures we take to protect it, and how you can exercise your data rights.

Our data protection information

When you use our website, we receive your personal data in two ways: There is personal data that you provide yourself when you interact with us, and personal data that we collect about you from various sources (e.g. fraud prevention agencies and credit reference agencies, or merchants). The personal data you share with us may include, for example:

• Your contact and identification information – we need this information to, for instance, confirm your identity, offer you support.
• Your payment information – we use third-party services (Klarna, PayPal, Stripe) that require this information to also confirm your identity and carry out transactions. For more information on how they handle your data, please contact them. Personal data that entities like Klarna collect about you may concern: name, date of birth, place of birth, and financial information – to, for instance, prevent fraud, confirm your creditworthiness, or review your information against lists of so-called “politically exposed persons”.
• Information about how you interact with Klarna – This may include information about how you use our service or your payment history with Klarna, which we use to tailor our products to you, offer you support, or make credit assessments before granting you credit.
• In processing orders, we handle information such as your name, address, and phone number to provide delivery of the ordered product and offer you the best service.

When you choose to share your information with us, we understand that you trust us to use it responsibly. Using your data responsibly means not only considering your best interests but also complying with applicable laws and requirements. When it comes to how and when we use your information, there are many regulations that apply. One such example is complying with the GDPR (EU’s General Data Protection Regulation), a law that governs data protection and privacy for all individuals in the EU.

As a financial institution, we are also obligated to adhere to several additional regulations. These regulations determine what we can do when granting credit, how we can contribute to preventing money laundering and financing of terrorism, and much more. Under these rules, we may be required to retain certain information or share information with authorities when legally compelled to do so.

We take this responsibility seriously and always strive to prioritize your best interests when assessing how best to comply with these regulations.
