What personal data we collect and why

On May 25, 2018, the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) entered into force. In short, it is an EU regulation that aims to strengthen the protection of individuals when processing personal data.


When it came into force, it replaced the 1995 Data Protection Directive, as well as the then existing national regulations of all Member States. In Sweden's case, it was the PUL, the Personal Data Act.

The GDPR also imposes new requirements on all companies, authorities and organizations that collect and handle personal data. Simply put, the GDPR clarifies the regulatory framework for the protection of personal data and clarifies the responsibility for data that is processed and stored. It is important that those who store or otherwise process personal data familiarize themselves with the basics of the GDPR.

Here you will find information about GDPR and what it means:

Considerations when processing personal data in our services

To start with, look at this page on what personal data actually is. As mentioned earlier, if you know that you are processing personal data in one way or another, there is much to consider.

Some concrete tips we can give regarding the processing of personal data related to our services are:

  • Do not process personal data that you do not need (regardless of consent or otherwise) and, if possible, refrain from processing extra sensitive data altogether.
  • Make sure that the information you process and collect is done on a legal basis.
  • Make sure you know your obligations as a data controller.
  • Use encrypted protocols for your web, email and file transfers, for example.
  • Keep your applications where data is processed secure, constantly updated and limit access to this data as much as possible.

Important documents for you as a customer

We also have the following documents that apply to you as a customer of Linserv AB, Linserv Consulting or WiigData in relation to GDPR.

  • General conditions
  • ​General conditions for IT operational services and communication services
  • Data protection policy
  • Data processing agreements
  • Processing of personal data (Annex 1 to the data processing agreement)

Linserv or WiigData as data controller

We act as a data controller for you as a customer and for the information you provide when registering for our services. This means that we assume the responsibilities that apply under the GDPR for data controllers when it comes to processing your personal data. Our customers, in turn, may be data controllers for information they collect and store in our services, and our role will be that of data processor to our customers. In the "Data Protection Policy" document, you will find all the information that applies to you registered with us.

Linserv or WiigData as data processor

For those of you who in turn store personal data in our services, we act as a data processor. This is something that is especially important for you as a customer to keep track of (you can read more about this here) and you as a data controller need to ensure that you have an agreement (processor agreement). This is something that we have developed together with our legal partners and is a data processing agreement that applies to all customers. It, together with Annex 1 ("Handling of personal data"), our general terms and conditions and our data protection policy, is the collective information you use when you consider us as a data processor.

Unfortunately, we do not have the opportunity to make adjustments to the assistance agreement we offer, nor to sign physically for you as a customer in our web hosting or cloud service - but therefore offer the digital standard agreement available at the link above. You who buy, for example, consulting or server services or similar via contact with the sales team or account manager may be able to do so at no extra cost and we then refer to your sales contact with us.

Trained and aware staff

​We have undergone internal training for all our staff in all departments and do it regularly once a year. We also have supplier/system support to keep us updated and work actively to follow the directives and also try to make this easier for our customers.


Other important information about how we work with the GDPR, both as a processor and a controller, can be found in our data protection policy and our appendix to the data processing agreement, which describes how we process personal data as a processor. Unfortunately, we are not able to answer questions about GDPR beyond what specifically applies to our services. For other questions, we refer to https://www.datainspektionen.se which has information and guides for working with the GDPR.
