Holmen processes your personal data to ensure performance of a contract, including ensuring execution, administration and payment and also making or handling complaints. Personal data is also needed for various business-related contacts before, during and after the performance of a contract.
Contract refers to numerous types of contract, for example, purchasing contracts, sales contracts, and contracts on collaboration and property-related issues as well as sponsorship and hunting. Contracts with forest owners have several distinctive features and processing why these contracts are described separately, see here.
In the most common situation, processing is linked to performance of a contract in which the contractual party is a company, but the data is needed for the representative of the company. Our legal basis for this processing is legitimate interest where our business contacts' interests or fundamental rights and freedoms are not afforded greater weight than our legitimate interest in executing a contract where the data subject is a representative of our contractual party.
If the data subject is personally a party to a contract with Holmen, for example where a business is run as a sole trader, our legal basis for the processing is performance of a contract in which the data subject is a party.
In some situations, the processing is not linked to existing contracts but is made to obtain or keep contact or to distribute business related information. Our legal basis for such a processing is legitimate interest where our business contacts' interests or fundamental rights and freedoms are not afforded greater weight than our legitimate interest in establishing and maintaining business relations.
