5. Extradition of personal data

SEK never sells your personal data to a third party. However, we may extradite your personal data to the following personal data protection officers:

  • Suppliers handling IT services, recruitment assignments for SEK and similar subjects.
  • Other receiving parties such as public authorities where liability is to hand according to the Swedish law, other constitutions or by decision of other public authorities.

Receiving parties processing personal data on behalf of SEK is obliged to enter a so called personal data processing agreement with SEK in order to secure your personal data in a correct and secure way.
When your personal data is shared with a receiving party that is independently responsible for its own personal data control, such as a public authority, the personal data process is handled according to the receiving party’s data protection policy and information about personal data processing.

6. Security

There is always a risk included by extraditing personal data over the internet. No technical systems are totally protected against hackers. SEK has, however, taken the technical security actions that SEK estimates are necessary for protection of personal data against illegal access, change or destruction.
