SLP Policy

Privacy Policy

Swedish Lorry Parts AB (SLP) protects your privacy and wants to ensure you can feel secure in entrusting us with your personal data. To this end, we have drawn up this privacy policy that describes how we process your personal data, the uses we make of it, who is given access to the data, and how you can safeguard your rights and your data privacy. The policy is based on current data protection legislation. 

  1. Background

    The primary reason why we process personal data from commercial partners is to ensure our ability to optimise the way in which we fulfil our undertakings to you. Our starting point is that the only personal data we process is that required to fulfil the objective in question, and that we shall always endeavour to use data that has the lowest possible level of privacy sensitivity. The term, commercial partner, refers to an individual with whom SLP does business, including customer employees and representatives, suppliers, as well as SLP’s own employees.

    We need your personal data to ensure we can provide you with a high quality service, information, and post-purchase communications. We may also need your personal data in order to comply with applicable legislative and regulatory provisions, to conduct customer and market analyses, and to email targeted offers and newsletters to our customers and other interested parties.

    We may engage a third party to provide certain services, such as IT services. We also engage advisors, lawyers and auditors. These third party suppliers provide their services for us under our control and supervision. They may require access to your personal data in order to perform their services.

    We may, furthermore, be required to provide national and international authorities (such as pensions authorities, tax authorities or prosecutors) with your personal data in order to fulfil our legal obligations or in the company’s interests.

  7. Rights

    You have the right to revoke your consent to storage of your data at any time. Should you do so, we will cease to process your personal data and will not collect any new personal data, provided that this data is not required in order to fulfil our contractual or legal obligations. Please note that revoking your consent may mean that we are unable to fulfil our obligations in relation to you as a commercial partner. To revoke your consent, please contact our Data Protection Officer (see point 2 for contact details).

    Right of amendment

    You have the right to demand correction of your data. To do so, please contact our Data Protection Officer (see point 2 for contact details).
