Handling personal data
We take responsibility for ensuring that any personal data processed by PostNord is used only for the intended purpose, and that it is protected from unauthorized use and access. Our goal is that you feel confident that your personal privacy is respected and that your personal data is treated with discretion.
The personal data you provide will be used to provide you with products, information and services you have requested, as well as for sales, development and monitoring. Personal data may also be used for marketing purposes, unless you submit a written request to not receive direct marketing. We may give your personal data to other companies in the PostNord Group or to the PostNord Group’s data processor. Beyond that, we will not share your personal data with a third party without your consent.
IP address registration
When you visit posten.se, your IP address is automatically registered to measure the frequency of visits.
Identification when collecting parcels/mailings
When collecting a parcel or mailing from one of PostNord's agents, i.e. a PostNord partner outlet or Business Service Center, you must bring some form of identification. PostNord checks identification to make sure no unauthorized party collects the parcel or mailing. We then register or scan the identity document number and save it with the identity number on the parcel/shipment (the parcel ID number) for 12 months. The information is used if you or the sender need to submit a complaint; see “Complaints” below.
For example, if you submit a complaint regarding a parcel that did not arrive, we register the sender, the recipient, the day the parcel was given to PostNord, the contents of the parcel and any other information that may help us track the parcel or its contents if the parcel was damaged. Even with other types of complaints, the information you submit will be registered with PostNord and used to handle your case.
Confidentiality within PostNord
PostNord's confidentiality policy applies to shipment items under the Postal Services Act, but other information about PostNord's customers is also treated as confidential. Address information in the mail carrier’s database may be given to authorities in some cases, as required by law or other regulation.
Registration of personal identity number
Certain services require a secure form of identification; therefore we need to register and process your personal identity number. If you are a sole proprietor and PostNord customer, your personal identity number is registered because it is your corporate registration number.
Storage of personal data
If you have an account at posten.se, your personal data will be stored in posten.se’s customer database for 3 years from the time you last logged in. You can always close your posten.se account by logging in to postnord.se or contacting customer service.
