3. CATEGORIES OF DATA PROCESSED, PURPOSE AND LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING

If you are the contact person at one of FirstVet’s Collaborators, FirstVet processes your name, telephone number and email address. FirstVet processes the data for the purpose of being able to manage the relationship with the Collaborator, meaning e.g. administering and exercising its rights and obligations under the agreement with the Collaborator, place or manage orders or provided services, and to otherwise enable FirstVet to communicate and conducts its businesses. The processing is based on a “balancing of interests” legal basis, where FirstVet’s legitimate interest is to administer its contractual obligations and rights, communicate with and otherwise maintain a good relationship with the Collaborator.

If you work with FirstVet as a sole proprietorship (Sw. Enskild firma) FirstVet processes your name, telephone number, email address and personal identity number (since it is the same as the sole proprietorship’s registration number). FirstVet processes the data for the purpose of being able to manage the relationship with the Collaborator, meaning e.g. administering and exercising its rights and obligations under the agreement with the Collaborator, place or manage orders or provided services, and to otherwise enable FirstVet to communicate and conduct is businesses. The legal basis for the processing is that it is necessary in order for FirstVet to fulfill its contractual obligations towards the sole proprietorship.

We may share your data with affiliated companies including other companies within the FirstVet group, joint ventures, franchisees and licensees.

FirstVet takes all reasonable legal, technical and organizational measures in order to ensure that your data is handled securely and with an adequate level of protection when transferring it to, or sharing it with, such selected third parties.

FirstVet may also release your personal data to public authorities where we are obligated to do so by law.

In the event all or part of FirstVet’s operations are sold, FirstVet may transfer your personal data to a potential purchaser of the business.

FirstVet will retain your name and contact information in our register of contact persons while our contractual relationship with the Collaborator is active or if we otherwise require the data for any matter related to our contractual relationship with the Collaborator. If you notify us that your employment with the Collaborator has terminated or that you should no longer be the contact person, we will delete your data from our register of contact persons within one month.

Your data (for example your name) may be found in agreements, correspondence or other documentation regarding FirstVet’s relationship with the Collaborator which FirstVet needs to save for commercial, business or legal reasons. The processing is based on FirstVet’s legitimate interest to store such documentation to the extent it is of commercial, business or legal significance to FirstVet’s business operations. This data will be stored for as long as it is necessary for the reasons mentioned.

FirstVet may also save your personal data for a longer period of time where necessary in order to fulfill a legal obligation which requires processing according to applicable law or in order for FirstVet to be able to establish, enforce, or defend against legal claims, for example in relation to confidentiality and liability provisions that outlive the termination of the contract with a Collaborator.
