Searching the website

Safetec does not keep information about what search words users enter in the search tool on our websites.

Sharing content on and

When you share content on the websites, information is immediately entered with the online community that you choose. How each online community then processes the data is regulated by your agreement with the online community. However, no information about that you have shared an item is saved by us.

Chat on

The chat function on enables visitors to communicate with the site’s appointed administrators. The chat function is an integral part of the total delivery of the website. Chat history is saved for those who have access to the website as administrators – there is no direct information about who has made contact beyond a generated visit number and the information entered by the visitor him or herself. The IP address is registered but it is not visible to Safetec. It only provides information on whether this is a new or repeat visitor and the type of browser being used.

Information about customersa

As part of the customer relationship, we are required to obtain information such as name, address, corporate registration number and other essential information. We only use this information in our relationship with you as a customer, for example to answer your enquiries, send quotations and complete your orders. Customer data is registered in our project room and associated customer database.

The information that you give us is kept for as long as the customer relationship continues. You have the right to inspect, correct and delete any data about you that we have stored. We also keep data for as long as we consider appropriate after a customer relationship ceases. This is to help you with any history if you should have need of it.

E-mail and telephones

Safetec uses e-mail and telephones to follow up customer relationships and operational activities and in general dialogue with internal and external contacts. Information that is provided by telephone calls and e-mails is registered and saved if this is necessary for responding to enquiries or complying with agreements or if legally required. In such cases, this information is processed as described above (see “Information about customers”).

Employees have a list of the most recent calls on their telephones, but there is no systematic registration or recording of telephone calls. Safetec’s employees are responsible for deleting e-mails that are no longer current. When an employee leaves, the e-mail account is deleted, but some relevant e-mails will normally be transferred to colleagues. Please note that normal e-mail is not encrypted. We would therefore advise you not to send confidential or sensitive information by e-mail.

Questionnaire surveys

Safetec uses Netigate to conduct questionnaire surveys. Only Safetec and Netigate have access to the data that is collected. What information the service provider has access to and how this is to be processed is regulated in a separate data processor agreement between Safetec and Netigate. In cases where Safetec performs questionnaire surveys with processing of personal data for customers, there will be processing agreements for this. We will always inform about the purpose of the survey, how long the data will be kept and other rights by means of informed consent. Safetec will not share the information with others or use it for any purpose other than what has been stated. Data from surveys that is used for future comparison and research will always be anonymised.

Visiting Safetec’s premises and participating in our events

List of course participants

List of visitors

Safetec does not keep lists of visitors to our premises. Visitors will always be accompanied by one of Safetec’s employees.

Information about employees

Safetec processes personal information about its employees for the administration of salaries and personnel responsibilities. The legal basis follows from the Personal Data Act section 8, first paragraph and section 8 a), b) or f) as well as section 9 a), b) and f). It is Safetec’s HR Manager who has day-to-day responsibility for this. The information obtained from the employees themselves and access to various types of information is limited to official needs.

Information that is essential for paying salaries, such as basic data, pay level, hours recorded, tax percentage and tax municipality, is registered. Other information about employees is in connection with the employee’s work instructions, preparation of work, access controls in office premises and access control in the IT system. Information is only divulged in connection with salary payments and other distribution required by law. Deletion procedures for personal data follow the Accounting Act.

The skills profiles of employees may be provided to customers in connection with the customer relationship, and information about employees’ names, positions and working areas may be published on Safetec’s websites where there is a legitimate interest. Skills profiles are deleted if employees leave our employment.

Logging in Safetec’s technical systems

Safetec has general security logs in its technical systems and responsibility for these has been delegated to the IT Manager. It is the employees’ use of technical systems that is registered. To safeguard the security of our systems, no further information about this is given here.

The legal basis for such logs is the requirement for keeping logs in the Personal Data Regulations, sections 2-8 and 2-14, and the Personal Data Act, section 8 f) to safeguard the security of the organisation’s information other than personal data.


According to the Personal Data Act, section 18 subsection 1, anyone who asks is entitled to basic information about the processing of personal data by an organisation. Safetec has given this information in this declaration and any such enquiries will be referred to it. Those who are registered in one of Safetec’s systems are entitled to inspect their own information. They are also entitled to ask that incorrect or incomplete information or information that Safetec is not permitted to process is corrected, deleted or supplemented. Such demands from the data subject must be responded to without charge and within 30 days.
