Type of data we collect and to what purpose

Visitors of our website

During normal website use we collect standard web server log data. Such data can normally not be used to identify you personally or reveal any information of a personal nature. We use these log data to create statistics and measure website activity in order to improve your user experience.

The function “Find you nearest shop” uses location services to identify your location in order to present the retailer closes to you. By using the settings on your browser and/or device you can choose to allow this or not.

We might also save certain information on your device in the form of “cookies”. Cookies are used for technical reasons to improve the functionality of the website, but also to provide information to the owner of the website. You can adjust your settings to block the use of cookies. However, this will mean that we cannot guarantee that the all functions on the website will perform as expected.

We process the above-mentioned data based on our legitimate interest to maintain, test and improve our digital tools and services. We never sell your data to third parties, but might share it with our suppliers for analysis or to improve our website and the services we provide here. These data are stored for up to 24 months.

If you are a corporate customer to us and have a login we will also store your data in other systems for performance of a contract, see below.

You can choose to communicate with Star Trading in a number of different ways, e.g. using e-mail, social media or by calling us. If you for any reason choose to contact us we might process your contact information and the information you provide to us in order to manage your inquiry. This could e.g. mean that we store the e-mail you have sent us. We process your personal data for our and your legitimate interest to manage your inquiry. This type of information is normally not shared with any third party unless it is needed to assist you in the best possible way, e.g. if we need to send goods to you or to refer you to one of our retailers. We normally delete your data shortly after your inquiry has been taken care of, unless a longer storage period is needed for other lawful purposes (e.g. for performance of a contract or is necessary for compliance with other legal obligations such as the Swedish Bookkeeping Act).

Social media

Star Trading uses social media to interact with our customers, but is not the controller of the personal data you choose to share on those platforms. We normally do not collect any personal data about you from these platforms unless it is required, e.g. to send you a price you have won in one of our competitions. In these cases, we are in contact with you as noted above.

Star Trading mainly collects and stores data about the companies with whom we do business, but for contractual reasons and contact information we will also store personal data about our relevant contacts at each respective company. The personal data we process normally only include your contact details and your job title as well as other information pertaining to your profession. As a corporate representative, your data might be stored in connection to agreements, orders, order history, invoices and similar documents. This data is processed based on our legal obligations by the Swedish Bookkeeping Act. Personal data on orders, invoices, contracts, etc is therefore stored for up to 8 years, after which it is rendered anonymous such that only corporate information remain.

We might also use your contact details for marketing purposes. We do this based on our legitimate interest to communicate with you as a customer or supplier. This data is normally stored as long as you are customer / supplier to us. We strive to constantly maintain and update our records.
