2. How do you collect my data

We collect personal data that you voluntarily provide to us, for example when you communicate with us via email or other channels, when you visit our website, when you sign up for or ask us to send you newsletters and when you sign up for an event. 

In some cases, your personal data have been supplemented by public information retrieved from other sources, including searches via available search engines, sector-specific newsletters, social media and your employer’s website, for the purpose of confirming your current professional position.

In our projects we need to report our work to our financiers (Tillväxtverket, European Union etc.). When reporting they may get access to event pictures and information about how many individuals attended our events. If it is an event aimed at our member companies we also have to report how many individuals from each of the companies attended.

We do not share individual names with our financiers however, only numbers.
