1. Introduction

Stocksholm is operated by Frontvestor AB (mentioned below as “Stocksholm”, the “Company,” “we,” “us,” “our”). We take your privacy seriously. The Company pledges to follow the provisions of this Privacy Policy in order to protect your privacy rights. This Privacy Policy forms part of the Terms of Service and is incorporated by reference to that Agreement.

We will always handle your data fairly and legally and are committed to being transparent about the data we collect and how we use it. We don’t rent or trade information about you with other organisations and businesses.

If you have any questions concerning this Policy, please contact us.

2. Information we collect about you

Each time a member accesses the site they receive a “cookie” from us. We use cookies (small pieces of data stored for an extended period of time on a computer, mobile phone, or other device) to make the site easier to use, and to protect both you and us. You may remove or block cookies using the settings in your browser, but doing so may impact your ability to use the site.

We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.

You are not required to enter your credit card information unless and until you decide to continue with a paid subscription. When you sign up, you must provide billing information. If you pay with a credit card, we will collect your card information and billing address, although we do not store full credit card numbers or personal account numbers.

3. How we use personal data

The information we collect may be used to:

  • manage your account
  • verify your identity and ensure that our customers are genuine

We won’t send you marketing messages if you tell us not to, but we will still need to send you occasional service-related messages.

When you visit our websites, we use service providers, like Google Analytics, to collect internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to understand how visitors use our websites. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone.

4. Who we share personal data with

We work with partners, suppliers, service providers and agencies and may need to share your personal information with them to provide certain services. However, we will only do so where they meet our standards for processing data and have confirmed that they have appropriate data protection and security controls in place. We will only share information with them that is necessary for them to provide services to us or directly to you and our contracts with them prevent them from using your personal information for any other purposes. These include:

  • Payment Providers – who take and manage payments
  • IT Companies – who support our website and information systems
  • Marketing Companies – who help manage our electronic communications with you

We may also share your personal information with:

  • governmental bodies, regulators, law enforcement agencies, courts and insurers where we are required to do so
  • our financial and legal advisors

We will not otherwise disclose your personal information to anyone else. We will not sell or rent our customer data to other organisations for marketing purposes.

5. Your data, your rights

Where you have provided us with information in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format which we process by automated means, you can receive this in a standard form or ask us to move or transfer that data to another service provider.

Not be subject to automatic decision making

You may not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, unless this is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract with us, it is authorised by the regulators or it is based on your explicit consent.
If you have any questions about your rights or wish to exercise any of them, please contact us.

Before providing personal information to you or another person on your behalf, we may ask for proof of identity and sufficient information about your interactions with us that we can locate your personal information.

In addition, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the data protection authority in your jurisdiction.
