In this policy, we describe how we process your personal data. If you have questions, you may be able to find an answer to them in this text, or you can send a question to firstname.lastname@example.org or call our customer service.

Collection of personal data
We must collect your personal data to be able to employ our Temporary Worker’s. In order for Cool Company to be able to process personal data, we must have a legal ground, that is, a legal basis. Processing of personal data is legal, if the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract. Processing is also legal if the processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which Cool Company is subject. Processing may also be done according to a balancing of interests, where Cool Company’s interest in processing information is balanced against the interest of the registrant in protection of integrity and the result is that a legitimate interest exist, or after the registrant has submitted consent to the processing. Consent is submitted separately and can always be revoked. If you don’t want Cool Company to process your personal data at all, you should not create an account or become one of our employees.
Legal basis for collection and processing
Fulfilment of agreement:
Since we are an employer for our Temporary Workers, this requires that we can process personal data to be able to enter into or fulfil agreements. The purpose is to administer employment conditions, which can involve payment of wages or to contact the employee. To fulfil our part of the agreement as an employer may require, in certain cases, that Cool Company gives out information about the employee to our client, that is to say the person commissioning the assignment. When you are employed by Cool Company, by law it is required that we can continually inform you about issues that affect your position, that can relate to the working environment.
If and when we need to get credit information to be able to provide our service Express-pay, it is both to fulfil the agreement and in our legitimate interest that we process your personal data for this purpose. If you don’t want us to do a credit check you should not select the Express pay service.
Cool Company processes personal data because of the liabilities that arise through law or other statutes, regulations of authorities, decisions, requests or guidelines. Personal data and the documents that are required in the Accounting Act is stored for as long as required. Documentation for bookkeeping and accounting may consist of agreements, written correspondence and invoices. Processing of personal data is required since we for example must submit personal data to the UK Tax Agency and other authorities and national organisations.
Fulfilment of agreement/legitimate interests:
Cool Company processes personal data by analyzing and processing statistics. For this processing, we can use both encrypted and pseudonymised data. The aim with this processing is so that we are able to improve our business and continue to offer our employees and customers good service, functionality and services.
Cool Company believes that there is a legitimate interest in maintaining security in our services, but that this is also a requirement for our being able to fulfil our part of the agreement. We do this processing to be able to offer you as safe and good a home page as possible.
Cool Company processes your personal data by handling case history to be able to offer you customer service and to continually train our partners and improve our work methods to be able to offer the best possible support. When you contact us, the communication can be a reason for analysis. We expect that to be able to fulfil our part of the agreement, we should be able to offer good customer support, which is one of the services we are paid for. Our customer support is one of our primary means of communication with our employees. For non-employee, we believe that it is in our and your legitimate interest so that we can offer good customer support, but also so that we can enter into an agreement with you.
