Privacy Policy

Personal privacy is important to Sekab, and you must feel safe with respect to how your personal data is processed by us. Our aim is therefore to always strive towards a high level of protection of your personal data.

What personal information is processed?

  • Name and social security number or other identification number
  • Contact information, e.g. address, telephone number, e-mail
  • Company affiliation

Sometimes additional information can be processed but only when it can be considered that you yourself have published such information for example, about various events.

From which sources do we retrieve personal information?

The gathering of your personal information takes place, for example, when you contact us with regard to various issues or register to receive newsletters, participate in seminars and other events. Data can also be collected about you as an employee when the company at which you work purchases our products or when it is already a customer of ours.

Use of personal data

We may process your personal data for the following purposes:

Customer service and support

In order to be able to provide you our customer with personal and swift service we require to register and administer your personal information. We can also use this information for contracting and invoicing.

Use of our websites/services

When you visit any of our websites, we can automatically retrieve information about your visits and your use of them. We sometimes link from our websites to other third party sites that have their own privacy rules for which we cannot be held responsible.

Delivery of a product

We need the right information about you and your company when you buy a product from us. This is for identification purposes and in order to be able to send an acknowledgement and to enable the safe delivery and invoicing of the product.


We want to be able to inform you about what we or our partners can provide, what is happening at present or to invite you to our events. This can be done by means of, for example, newsletters to your e-mail. You can unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time.


We sometimes conduct surveys to find out what you think of us, this is mainly done by e-mail.


If you send e-mails or information to us in any other way, that information will be processes by us. We move important or sensitive data to other systems and regularly erase items from our email archives.

Camera surveillance

If you visit us, you will find that our industrial area is subject to camera surveillance. Camera surveillance takes place for security reasons and here we refer to the balancing of interests on a legal base in accordance with the Swedish Video Surveillance Act (2018: 1200).

How long do we save your personal data?

We will save your information as long as it is required to fulfil the above purposes or as long as we are required by law to do so. The length of storage time can differ dependent on the purpose of the processing and how long the information is necessary for the specific purpose. Thereafter, we will securely erase or de-identify your information so that it can no longer be linked to you.

Access to personal data

The information you provide Sekab with can be shared within the company and with partners in order to fulfil the above-mentioned purposes or in connection with statutory requirements, legal investigations or court decisions. In some situations, it is also necessary for us to share personal information with third parties and in such cases data processor agreements are drawn up.

We will never forward, sell or make changes to your personal information for marketing purposes to third parties outside Sekab.
