SKB’s Data Protection Guidelines

Our data protection guidelines regulate how we process your personal data to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation* (also known as GDPR) when you visit our websites, our facilities or are in contact with us in some other way.

By submitting your personal data to us, you confirm that you have read and consent to these guidelines.

Below we describe the principles on which our data protection guidelines for processing your personal data are based. You can find more detailed information about our processing of personal data here.


Your personal data will be handled fairly with a focus on your rights.

Fit for purpose

Your personal data will be collected for specific and legal purposes and your personal data will only be used for the purposes for which it was collected.


You always have the right to receive information about what personal data we have saved about you.


Your personal data will be collected on a legal basis, i.e. either via consent, an agreement between us, a legal basis or a balance of interests. Employee personal data is collected primarily on the basis of your employment contract and our obligation to comply with laws, regulations and collective agreements.

Data minimisation

Only personal data that is relevant and needed for each processing step will be collected.


Collected personal data must be correct and, where possible, fully updated. The personal data collected is the information you provide when registering. Depending on the personal data processing in question, the personal data submitted may be reviewed to ensure your identity. You can at any time make corrections to your personal data, for example in the event of a name change, address change, etc.

Time limited

Personal data will only be processed for as long as necessary for the purpose for which it was collected.


All personal data will be treated confidentially. SKB guarantees confidentiality through well-established security procedures with different employee authorisation classifications, where only those who need to process your personal data will do so. SKB also conducts ongoing employee training and provides information on how personal data may be collected, processed and handled.
