Within the Eniro Group (to be defined as Eniro AB, 556588-0936 and its subsidiaries) we process personal data for those customers and users who use our services and products. Eniro AB and its subsidiaries are jointly referred to below as "Eniro".
What is personal data?
All information that directly or indirectly may be referable to a natural person who is alive is to be deemed personal data for the purposes of the Act. The following will therefore be deemed personal data: names, addresses and telephone numbers.
Collection and processing of personal data
The collection of personal data can be both active and passive. Active collection takes place when, as a user or customer, you provide your data to us when you log in, purchase a service/product, etc. Where you do not personally actively provide the data to us but, rather, the collection takes place with the aid of other tools (such as through cookies), the collection is deemed passive.
Eniro collects personal data for the purpose of, among other things, communicating with, and complying with our undertakings to, our customers and users in accordance with agreements entered into and for the purpose of improving the quality of our products and services. We also use personal data for direct marketing in compliance with law and praxis. We can also provide such personal data to a third party who wishes to offer you direct marketing.
We use IP addresses, for example, to enable us to diagnose problems on our servers and our networks and to administer our websites. We also use IP addresses for statistical purposes.
In some cases, personal data is processed for the purpose of providing services other than Eniro’s own services. In such cases, Eniro may process the personal data for, and in accordance with instructions from, a third party, such as our advertising partners.
Consent to the processing of your personal data
Where it is a legal requirement that your consent be obtained for the processing of certain types of personal data or for certain types of processing, such specific consent will be obtained from you before processing the personal data. We never, for example, collect or process personal data which may be considered sensitive, such as information concerning your health, information concerning your personal identification number. Our services are not intended for use by individuals under the age of 13 and Eniro does not intentionally collect personal data concerning, anyone under that age. If you become aware that your child has provided us with personal information without your consent, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Providing personal data to another party
Personal data may be transferred between companies in the Eniro Group.
Eniro may also transfer personal data to subcontractors if we deem it necessary to comply with our undertakings to you as a customer or a user. Our subcontractors are always required to enter into a personal data assistance agreement with Eniro to enable us to ensure a high level of protection for your personal data.
Eniro may provide data concerning your search behaviour in our services and products to our co-operating partners. Such data may also be provided to our co-operating partners for the purpose of demonstrating the interest in a particular advertisement or campaign. We do not collect information or display advertisements based on information which can identify you personally without your consent.
Eniro can provide personal data to a third party, such as the police or another public authority, in the case of a criminal investigation or where Eniro is otherwise under a duty to provide such data pursuant to statute or the decision of a public authority.
Eniro does not generally transfer personal data to countries outside the EU/EEA but where, for example, we have a subcontractor in a country outside the EU/EEA, personal data may be transferred. In order to ensure a high level of protection for your personal data, Eniro will enter into agreements with such subcontractors (except where the relevant country’s privacy protection legislation has been approved by the EU) which govern the transfer of personal data and the processing of personal data by the subcontractors. The agreements contain the standard terms and conditions issued by the EU Commission which comply with the requirements imposed under Swedish law to protect the personal data transferred or a guarantee that the subcontractor is compliant with the safe harbor privacy principles.
Cookies and the possibility to remove cookies
Eniro uses various tools to see, for example, how our users are using our products and services.
You can deny the website the possibility to store your cookies or web beacons – You set this rule in your web browser.

Caller-id (only for users of Android apps)
In order to provide you with information about who is calling or sending you a text message or who you are calling, the app makes a search in your address book, when there is an incoming call or text message or outgoing call. The phone number is uploaded via the Internet to our service, where another search is made and the service thereafter provides you with additional contact information. We do not share this data with anyone. The information is only shared with you on your device to enhance your experience.
Websites which are owned and controlled by Eniro have a high level of security which aims to protect such personal data which is under Eniro’s control.
We take appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect information against unauthorised access, modification, dissemination, and destruction.
Eniro’s products and services may contain links or references to websites or content which are provided by third parties. Eniro is not responsible for the processing of personal data which takes place, or the content which is provided by such third party, on a third party’s website.
