Processing of personal data in work documents

If you send me a document containing personal data, please specify which data you want processed in a special manner. I offer the option to send and receive encrypted emails using Virtru’s plugin for Outlook and can encrypt and decrypt files using 7-Zip File Manager. Upon request, I may be able to delete your files after the completion of your project earlier than the usual retention periods listed in my data retention policy. Contact me if you have any special requests with regard to the transfer and processing of your data.

Processing of personal data in my business activities

I do not use customer lists in my business. Therefore, personal data is largely only processed to the extent it is contained in the emails, contact form submissions, text messages, and documents you send to me. This personal data is processed for the performance of a contract, provided that nothing else is required by applicable law. In other cases, I process your data with your consent or on the basis of legitimate interest, and I save personal data only for as long as is necessary to fulfill the purpose of processing.

Processing of personal data on my website

Usage data, which may to a certain extent contain personal data, is collected from using Matomo. The purpose of this usage data is to improve the website by understanding which content is more or less relevant to visitors. Safeguards I put in place to avoid the collection of personal data from this usage data include the anonymization of the IP address and replacement of user IDs with pseudonyms. Given that there may still be some personal data in this usage, I always obtain your consent for processing your usage data via cookies when you visit my website.

For more information about exactly what usage data may be collected via Matomo, please see Matomo’s privacy policy.


I use cookies (small data files transferred onto computers or devices by sites) for statistical purposes and to enhance the functionality of my website. You may deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies by changing the settings in your web browser. Cookies that are already stored may be deleted at any time.

Secure transfer and third parties

I use a Microsoft Exchange server environment with appropriate safeguards for emails. For backup and archiving purposes, I use enterprise-grade hardware with Storvix’s storage solution to ensure zero data corruption. Apart from this hardware, personal data in my business is only stored locally on my computer or phone. Usage data from my website is stored on Swedish servers with my web host, Mebo, with which I have signed a data processing agreement. I have also signed data processing agreements with suppliers for services such as invoicing (Visma) and email (Microsoft), as well as with those who work on projects with me. I never disclose your personal data to third parties other than these data processors and sub-processors.

Your rights

You can request that your personal data be updated or deleted at any time. In terms of data from my business activities, this includes your email address in Outlook, your phone number on my phone, or, if I bill you as an individual or sole proprietorship, your address data in my invoicing program. You can accept or reject the collection of your usage data and cookies on my website, and you can revoke this consent at any time. Although I do not maintain customer lists from which your data could be removed, you are welcome to inquire about whether I have stored any of your personal data. Upon receiving your inquiry, I will search my file systems and usage data and get back to you within 30 days. You have the right to data portability and to object to the processing of your personal data. You can contact the competent supervisory authority for the processing of personal data in Sweden, the Swedish Data Protection Authority.
