Information to data subjects in accordance with articles 13 and 14 of the EU general data protection regulation
Business Driven Development AB (“BDD,” “we,” “us”) is the data controller responsible for the processing of personal data for which we determine the purpose and means. For example, we process personal data in handling the company’s business, in handling questions, for marketing purposes, and in our administration of courses and webinars.
If you, as a data subject, wish to exercise your rights or have questions concerning the company’s processing of your personal data, you can contact us by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Alternatively, you can send a letter to: BDD AB, Adelgatan 21, 211 22 Malmö, Sweden
We have operations in several countries, and Swedish Authority for Privacy Protection (DPA) is the lead supervisory authority. Still, as a data subject, you can always choose which country’s supervisory authority you wish to contact, for example, when filing a complaint.

If you do not wish for us to handle your personal data
For the performance of a contract, contact information is essential. If you don’t accept the processing of representatives’ and participants’ personal data, it will not be possible to enter into a contract with us. If you don’t agree to us processing your contact information, you will not be able to participate in our courses and webinars.
If you wish to oppose receiving information about upcoming events, please contact us. Please contact Scaled Agile Inc directly for marketing distributed by Scaled Agile Inc.
Special categories of personal data
We never ask for any data related to Special categories of personal data, for example, information about your health, political opinions, or religious beliefs. If any such data is sent to us, it will be deleted immediately if not needed for the service provided or the contract at hand. The data is not registered separately.
Documents and messages often contain other personal data of various kinds, other than contact information, when working together on a project. This data is handled in the relevant matter/project, is never registered separately, and is not made searchable. Correspondence related to projects will be saved with the rest of the documentation and deleted at the latest ten years after the project is finished. Otherwise, the data will be deleted as soon as it’s irrelevant.
Processing personal data for a legitimate interest
We believe the people connecting with us are interested in our services and appreciate invitations to upcoming events such as webinars or courses. We also believe that the partners, potential customers, and former participants in our activities appreciate invitations to our upcoming events. It’s always possible to contact us for immediate exclusion of marketing, in accordance with the data subject’s rights to oppose direct marketing. Inform us if you don’t want any further invitations. We will then, of course, remove your data from our marketing list. If you receive marketing directly from our business partner, Scaled Agile Inc., please turn directly to them.
When an employer registers employees for attending a course or webinar, we use the contact information about the employees to provide the service. We assume that the employer has the right to provide the employee information to us, and it’s a legitimate interest for us to register the information to invite clients to attend and to provide the course or webinar.
When we organize courses in cooperation with Scaled agile the links and other information are provided directly from Scaled agile. The participant’s email address and name are registered with Scaled agile as a third party. For more information about how Scaled agile use your information, please visit https://scaledagile.com/privacy-policy/.
Transfers of data to countries outside EU/EES
BDD is an international company. Information provided to us will be handled in systems reachable to our BDD partners worldwide.
Microsoft (M365) and Google suite are examples of services we use provided by American companies. See below for a full list of data processors. In accordance with US law, the American authorities have the right to access information stored by these companies. The risk of American authorities showing any interest in our business most likely is limited. Yet, we urge you never to register more personal information than needed for the service of a course or in an email.
Organizations with whom we share your data
We use different business partners and several so-called data processors to provide our services. The data processors engaged may only process personal data in accordance with the purposes and instructions that we issue for the processing. The processor and anyone acting on behalf of the processor may never see more data than is necessary to carry out the service covered by the agreement with BDD. WA’s so-called data processor agreement is drawn up where personal data is to be processed by a data processor; BDD uses data processors for various IT services.

There might also be situations where we are obliged to share your data with an authority, for example, if a data subject files a complaint against BDDs treatment of personal data or in correspondence with tax authorities.
Period for which the personal data will be stored
Personal data is retained only as long as needed for the purposes for which it is processed.
When performing a contract, we store contact information for ten years after the contract expires. Personal data relating to ongoing work is stored together with other relevant information as long as it is relevant to the ongoing work. Still, no longer than ten years after the work has finished.
Observe that BDD might be obliged to store personal data in accordance with Swedish law, for example, in accordance with the Swedish accountant law.
Your rights as a data subject
You have several rights as a data subject. If you, as a data subject, wish to exercise your rights or have questions concerning BDDs processing of your personal data, you can contact us at email@example.com.
Right of access
You can request information as to whether BDD processes personal data relating to you and, if so, receive a copy of such data – called a register extract – together with more detailed information.
Right to rectification
If you consider that the personal data relating to you is inaccurate or incomplete, you can request to have the data rectified or completed.
Right of objection
When BDD processes personal data, you can object to the processing anytime. If BDD cannot show that there are compelling, authorized reasons to continue processing the data, BDD must terminate the processing.
Right to limitation of processing
In certain cases, for example, if you have objected to the processing, you can demand that the processing of your personal data be limited. By requesting a limitation, you have, at least for a certain period, the possibility to stop BDD from using the data other than, for example, defending legal claims. You can also prevent BDD from erasing the data, for example, if you need the information to claim damages.
Right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”)
You can, in certain cases, have your personal data erased. When your personal data is needed for BDD to be able to comply with laws and regulations, for example, in accordance with the Swedish accounting act, BDD cannot erase the data.
Right to data portability
Suppose BDD processes personal data relating to you to perform an agreement. In that case, you have the possibility in certain cases to be given the personal data relating to you to use it somewhere else, for example, transfer the data to another data controller.
The right to file a complaint
As a data subject, you have the right to file a complaint with the data protection authority; in Sweden, it’s the Swedish Authority for Privacy Protection – imy.se
You also have the right to receive compensation from a data processor or us if you have suffered material or non-material damages because of an infringement of this regulation.
