1. What information we collect and how we collect it
The IT industry collects data about you that is limited to the type of information found on a regular business card: first name, last name, position, employer/company name, work address, work email and work number. Sometimes we may ask you to provide additional professional information, such as company size and industry type.
To improve or update the information you have provided to us, we may combine it with professional information or personal information we collect from third parties. The personal information we refer to in this document is the personal and professional information you provide, as well as information we receive from third parties, which we typically combine as a user record.
2. How we collect it
We may collect your personal information when you register to receive any of the products, content or services offered by IT Industry or its third-party sponsors, such as publications, subscriptions, contests, newsletters, memberships, premium content, webcasts, videos, white papers, online seminars, conferences and events.
3. What happens if you do not disclose personal data?
In order for us to be able to provide the products, content or services you request, we need your personal data. If you do not disclose such personal data, we cannot deliver the products, content or services.
4. The IT Industry Publishing Network
This website is one of many operated by the IT Industry and its group companies, which we collectively refer to as the IT Industry Publishing Network. Where permitted by law, we may share the personal data we collect about you with another company in the IT Industry in order to provide you with information about products, content and services that may interest you and for internal analytical and business development purposes.
5. How we protect your personal data
Security for your personal data
The IT Industry maintains security measures, including technical and organizational security measures, to protect your personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorized use, access, accidental disclosure, alteration and destruction. We also require that the third parties we contract with to support the IT Industry's operations use reasonable security measures.
We update and test security regularly and limit access to your personal information only to those who need to know to provide IT-Branschen's products, content or services to you.
Storage of your personal data
We can store your personal data using IT-Branschen's own secure servers on site or other internal/external hosted technology. Your personal data may also be stored by third parties, via cloud services or other technology, with which IT-Branschen has entered into an agreement to support IT-Branschen's operations.
These third parties do not use or have access to your personal information except for cloud storage and retrieval, and the IT Industry requires that such parties use at least the same level of security that we use to protect your personal information.
6. What we do with the personal data we collect
To communicate with you
We may use your personal information to send you important notices, such as communications about your registration, transactions and changes to the IT Industry's terms, policies and/or other internal purposes.

We may contact you to offer you additional products, content or services from the IT Industry or third parties that may be of interest to you, based on your interests or preferences that you have shared with us, and we may share your personal information with third parties sponsors of content, events and other services or offers.
7. The legal basis we have for processing your personal data
GDPR requires that data collectors, such as the IT industry, have a legal basis for using personal data from EU citizens. Therefore, this section will apply to such personal data collected by the IT Industry.
The IT Industry uses the personal data you provide to provide you with high-quality products, content and services that you request, to send important messages and for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis and research to provide you with the information you need to make the most informed technology purchasing decisions.
We may also use your personal information to offer you products, content or services that may be of interest to you, based on your interests or preferences that you have shared with us, and we may share your personal information with third-party sponsors of content, events and other services or offers.
The legal basis for processing your personal data is your consent. In some cases, we may also process your personal data if the IT Industry has a legitimate interest in doing so and does not infringe any of your rights and freedoms.
When IT-Branschen processes your personal data for IT-Branschen's legitimate interests, we will consider and balance any impact on you and your rights under data protection and other relevant law. Our legitimate business interests do not override your interests. IT-Branschen will not use your personal data in situations where your rights and freedoms outweigh our legitimate interests, unless we have your consent or if it is required or permitted by law.
8. When and how we share your personal data with others
The IT Industry may share your personal information to deliver content and services from our websites, affiliated companies and third party services that may be of interest to you, including sponsored content and events, for business operations and to comply with valid legal process.
If you are an EU citizen, IT-Branschen will only share your personal data with third parties outside the IT-Branschen Publishing Network with your consent.

As we mention above, your personal data may be shared within the IT Industry Publishing Network to provide you with information about products, content and services that may interest you and for internal analytical and business development purposes.
