Customers and marketing
Respect for the privacy of the individual is important to us at Billogram (“Billogram”, “we”, “us”, “our”) and we work proactively to protect the personal data that we process. All personal data is processed in accordance with applicable law. This Policy contains information about how we as data controller process personal data when you or your company are a customer of ours and use our service, as well as in our marketing and sales processes.
In this Policy, we describe how and for what purposes we use your personal data, the lawful basis for the processing and what measures we take to protect personal data. We also describe how you can invoke your rights in regards to our processing of your personal data.
The definitions of the concepts above shall apply regardless of whether capitalised or not.

Billogram’s role as controller
The information in this policy covers personal data processing for which Billogram is the controller, i.e. where we decide the purposes (the “why”) and the means (the methods, which personal data to be processed and how long it should be stored). The policy does not describe how we process personal data in the role of data processor, i.e. when we process personal data on behalf of our customers.
General information about our personal data processing
We have an obligation to describe and provide evidence for how we meet the requirements imposed on us when we process your personal data. This section aims to describe general principles governing our personal data processing and to specify the personal data we process.
In order to process personal data, the controller must have a lawful basis in applicable law for the processing. The lawful basis for our processing is as follows:
Consent – You have given your explicit consent that we may process your personal data. You may withdraw your consent at any time and we will cease processing your personal data for the purpose to which you have given your consent.
Contract – The processing is necessary for us to be able to perform a contract we have with you or to be able to enter into such a contract.
Legal obligation – Processing of your personal data is necessary for us to meet the legal requirements imposed on us in our business operations.
Legitimate interests – We have undertaken a legitimate interest assessment where we have determined that our interests in processing your personal data outweigh your right not to be covered by the processing.
How long do we store your personal data?
We only save your personal data for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. Depending on the lawful basis in question, our processing may be governed by a contract, be dependent on valid consent, be prescribed by law or follow from an internal legitimate interest assessment. In the section “How your personal data is processed” below, we specify the criteria for when the purpose ceases and thus the time when we no longer process your data.
When we share your personal data with others
We may share your personal data with others in order for us to perform any of the processing operations described in this policy, for example for the storage of data. We always enter into Data processing agreements with the data processors we use, in which we, among other things, give the processor instructions on how the personal data may be processed and what security measures are required for the processing. The processor may not carry out any processing of your personal data that goes beyond these instructions.
If required by law, decree, regulation, government decision or other ruling binding on Billogram, we may disclose your personal data to various authorities, such as the Swedish Tax Agency or the Swedish Police Authority.
Transfer of personal data outside the EU/EEA
Where personal data is transferred to countries outside the EU/EEA, we implement safety measures to ensure that the level of security is adequate and in accordance with applicable law. Such appropriate safety measures include, inter alia, ensuring the following:
- The European Commission has decided that the third country to which your personal data is transferred achieves an adequate level of protection, or
- The European Commission’s standard contractual clauses have been signed between Billogram or its processors, as applicable, and the recipient outside the EU/EEA. In these cases, we also assess whether there is legislation in the recipient country that affects the protection of your personal data. Where necessary, we take special measures to ensure that the protection of your data remains in place when transferring it to the relevant country outside the EU/EEA.
