Privacy policy for Stiftelsen Kalixbostäder

Stiftelsen Kalixbostäder processes your personal data in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This privacy policy explains the way Stiftelsen Kalixbostäder processes your personal data. It also outlines your rights vis-à-vis Stiftelsen Kalixbostäder, and how you can exercise these rights. Stiftelsen Kalixbostäder wants you to feel secure when we process your personal data when you apply for accommodation, become one of our customers as well as for a period of time after your relationship with us ends. Stiftelsen Kalixbostäder does this with the greatest consideration to your privacy.

What is personal data?

Personal data refers to all types of information which can be related to a living physical person, either directly or indirectly. This includes a person’s name, personal identity number, address, e-mail address and telephone number. It may also include customer reference numbers, encrypted data and other types of electronic identities, such as IP numbers, if they can be linked to a physical person.

What do we do with your information?

All personal data processed by Stiftelsen Kalixbostäder is used to deliver, carry out or improve the services and solutions we provide. Stiftelsen Kalixbostäder processes personal data for the following purposes, based on the legal grounds specified below:

  • Data collected when registering on the accommodation waiting list

When you register on the waiting list to apply for accommodation you provide personal data which is stored in Stiftelsen Kalixbostäder’s database. You are responsible for ensuring the personal data you provide to Stiftelsen Kalixbostäder is correct. In conjunction with registration, you are giving your consent for Stiftelsen Kalixbostäder to register, process and store your personal data for the purposes intended. Providing your name, personal identity number and other personal details is a pre-requisite in order to file an application for accommodation. Just as before, a credit reference will be obtained and references taken from previous landlords before a contract is signed. If you are not active on the waiting list, for example, by logging into My pages or contacting the customer service team at Stiftelsen Kalixbostäder in any other way during a 12-month period, your personal data will be purged and your place on the waiting list withdrawn.

The legal grounds are weighing of interests before an agreement.  

  • Data which is collected when you are a tenant

When you sign a contract, Stiftelsen Kalixbostäder will process additional personal data in order to ensure the contractual conditions may be satisfied. This could include data regarding your rental contract, key receipts, reports of faults, rent notifications and payments you have made. Stiftelsen Kalixbostäder will retain your data as long as you are a tenant. There are procedures for purging personal data which is obsolete. When you cancel your apartment, Stiftelsen Kalixbostäder will delete your personal data in accordance with applicable legislation. Naturally, this is contingent on there being no active, unresolved cases between you and Stiftelsen Kalixbostäder, such as unpaid rent or cases relating to disturbance. Stiftelsen Kalixbostäder will use the data you have provided in order to issue relevant information regarding your apartment, such as details of renovation, as well as customer publications or customer satisfaction surveys. If you do not wish to receive such information, you are welcome to notify Stiftelsen Kalixbostäder of this via email at info@kalixbo.se.

The legal grounds are agreement, legal obligation and legal claims.
