Purposes and categories of personal data

Firstly, when you visit our page, certain information regarding you such as age, gender, place of residence etc, as well as your actions on the page is registered (see Facebook’s information for details). This information is not available to us, but it is used to create anonymous statistics which we can review in tools provided to us by Facebook, and then use in order to optimize our Facebook page and make it more interesting to visitors.

Secondly, we may process your personal data if you post on the page, and in certain other instances in which our purposes for handling personal data and the categories of personal data used is often evident from the context of your contact with us. These are the main types of situations:

  • If you contact us with an issue related to our products or some other query, we will use your name, Facebook account contact info and the information you give us to help you.
  • If you participate in a competition or campaign, we will typically process your [Facebook] profile name, account contact info, images of you or other people, the fact that you participate, and any answers or other input you have provided for the purpose of managing the competition or campaign.

Our handling of personal data will only happen within the boundaries of the law. The legal basis may either be that

  • that we have a legitimate interest in a certain type of use of personal data, and that we expect that you are ok with this based on your contact with us and your use of Facebook. Legitimate interests may serve as a legal ground for us in four instances:
    • the commercial interest in creating attention for our brands and products by arranging and managing consumer participation in competitions and campaigns.
    • If you have contacted us with us with a question or other type of request, and the data processing is necessary to handle that request.
    • the interest of knowing characteristics of the consumers who are interested in our brands and products, in order to adapt our products or marketing (including the appearance and content of our Facebook page).
