Privacy Policy

Data protection guarantee

A prerequisite for job applicants at Södra is that we are able to register your personal data in order to manage, store and otherwise process your job application. By law, you have a number of rights. These are set out below under Your rights.

How we process your personal data

Södra Skogsägarna ekonomisk förening considers the correct processing of your personal data to be a matter of trust and would hereby like to inform you about how we process your personal data. This information refers to all of the personal data that you provide us with when applying for an advertised position or registering your CV in our CV database.

Data controller

Södra Skogsägarna ekonomisk förening is a data controller.

Why do we need your personal data?

Södra primarily collects personal data directly from you. That includes your name, personal identity number, address, e-mail address, gender, CV, personal letter and telephone number.

Why do we need your personal data?

Södra needs to process your personal data in order to manage your job application and to carry out any administrative procedures, such as contacting you if required, etc.

Lawful basis


Your personal data is mainly processed on the lawful basis of consent. If you no longer want Södra to store your data, you can visit Södra’s recruitment tool at any time and erase all of your details. However, you should be aware that this could prevent you from applying for a specific job. In some cases, however, your data may be saved in accordance with the information below under Erasure of personal data. In cases where processing cannot be based on the lawful basis of consent, it may also be processed on the basis of legitimate interests. Personal data may also be processed to comply with a legal obligation, such as the Swedish Accounting Act and applicable labour laws, such as, but not limited to, the Discrimination Act, the Employment (Co-determination in the Workplace) Act and the Employment Protection Act.

Erasure of personal data

Personal data may be kept for a maximum of two years from when you last updated your profile or submitted your data to us.

Transfer of personal data


In some cases, Södra may be required to transfer your personal data to various external partners. Your personal data may also be transferred to subsidiaries of the Södra Group. Additionally, your personal data may also be transferred to various IT service providers,
such as IT support, development and systems management. In the event that Södra
transfers your data to external parties to process personal data on behalf of Södra, a processing agreement is drawn up. That means that Södra enters into an agreement with the counterparty on how your personal data may be processed. As a general rule, Södra will only transfer and process your personal data within the EU/EEA. In cases where your personal data must be transferred to a country outside the EU, this is carried out in accordance with the protection rules set out in current data protection legislation, which means that special precautions are taken, including an assessment of that country’s data protection legislation.

Sensitive personal data

Södra does not routinely collect sensitive personal data (such as information about ethnicity, health, religion or sexual orientation). We recommend that you do not provide sensitive personal information in free text fields or similar.

Security for your personal data

Södra will take all appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure the security of your personal data, and to limit and prevent the risk of your personal data falling into the wrong hands. However, we cannot guarantee the security of any information transferred to us over the Internet, and you do so at your own risk. It is important that you also take responsibility for ensuring that your data is protected. As a user, it is your responsibility to ensure that your sign-in details are kept secret.

Content optimisation

We collect certain information about you in order to optimise and improve Södra’s digital channels. This mainly takes the form of cookies, which can provide us with information about the content you use most often. Södra uses cookies to provide you with personalised offers, based on your preferences.
