Data protection principles for DB Schenker
The personal integrity and security of your personal data is important to us. Therefore, in this policy we want to inform you about what personal data we collect, how and for what purpose we process the data and what you can do if you have questions or are dissatisfied with our processing of your personal data.
Schenker AB and other Swedish Schenker companies (in this policy referred to as 'DB Schenker' or 'we') are responsible for the processing of your personal data in cases where DB Schenker collects the information, for example if you order a transport via our website or ask for a quote, or in cases where DB Schenker otherwise determines the purpose of the processing. This could be, for example, in the case of transports carried out on behalf of a customer of DB Schenker where you, as a consumer, are the recipient of the shipment (for example when you order an item from an e-commerce company). In cases where we received the data from another party responsible for personal data (data controller) and that party also decides how DB Schenker should process your data, that party is primarily responsible for the processing of the personal data. DB Schenker's role is then to assist the data controller as a personal data processor.
Processing of personal data
Personal data is any kind of information that can be directly or indirectly related to an identifiable natural person (e.g. name, address, social security number, e-mail address, IP address and other identification data). The collection and processing of personal data is necessary for us to be able to perform the services offered by DB Schenker. The personal data is processed only for intended purposes, in order to be able to deliver goods or parcels to a particular recipient or to ensure that no unauthorized person collect the parcel, among other things.
For technical reasons, certain data is required to be collected and stored when you visit our website dbschenker.se. This includes the date, time of session, pages visited, browser identification data and operating system used. This data provides us with information about the number of visitors and how the website is used. The collection is completely anonymous.
In addition to website visits, the collection and processing of personal data takes place;
Personal data processed in these cases include name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, ID document number, electronic identification data.
Processing involves, for example, the collection, reading, use, transfer and deletion of personal data.
Legal basis for processing
All processing of personal data is in accordance with current legislation, primarily the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)1. We process your personal data when we have a lawful basis for processing, for example;
By taking appropriate technical and organizational measures, DB Schenker is responsible for ensuring that your personal data is handled in a secure manner and protected from intrusion, access, dissemination, loss or other unauthorized handling.
DB Schenker works in accordance with current and applicable security standards.
We collect, process and store only the personal data that is necessary to fulfill our obligations.
Personal data is kept up to date
As our service is dependent on your personal data being accurate and up to date, we ask you to inform us of any relevant changes. You can contact Customer Service to notify us of the changes. If we detect incorrect information, we will update the information and inform you.
Storage of personal data
The data is stored during the period agreed or decided in relation to the legislation, and we ensure the erasure of the personal data when it is no longer needed for the intended purpose. The period is determined by the purpose and the legal basis for the processing, so there is not a general storage period that applies to all data.
When required by law, DB Schenker will obtain consent before processing your personal data. You can withdraw your consent at any time by notifying us.
Handing over personal data to third party
We hand over personal data to third parties in cases where we use subcontractors or partners to fulfill the agreement we have with you, or the party you purchased a product from, and who have hired us for transport or logistics service, and also in cases where criminal offence is suspected and we are responsible to provide authority with this information. In order to ensure that the data is processed securely and only for the purpose of carrying out the ordered service and the intended purpose, these third parties are bound by the corresponding statutory obligations that apply to DB Schenker. This is carried out by DB Schenker signing a so-called data processing agreement with the third party.
We only use data processors in the EU or in countries that can give your data adequate protection.
You have the right, in accordance with applicable law, to receive information about what data we store and what we use it for. You also have the right to request updates or get your data corrected in case of inaccurate information. In some cases specified in the legislation, you also have the right to request that DB Schenker cease processing, or delete the data, provided that there is no justified and lawful reason for DB Schenker to retain the data. You can also contact us if your information has been processed in violation of the law or other legal obligations. At the end of this text you will find information on how to contact us for such a request.
In cases where DB Schenker received your personal data from another party responsible as data controller, you should primarily contact the data controller (e.g. the one you bought or ordered a product from).
You also have the option to file a complaint directly to the responsible supervisory authority - the Swedish Data Protection Authority.
When you request information about your data, to have it corrected or deleted, we will promptly process your request and execute the request to the extent this is feasible in accordance with other legislation and regulations.
