Kvdpro’s personal data processing
What personal data are collected?
Kvdpro collects and processes personal data about you through your use of kvdpro.com, for example, data you provide when you make an enquiry, sign up as a member, or provide information on kvdpro.com. The personal data that Kvdpro processes are name, email address, sales and purchases history (including payment and bidding history), IP address and telephone number. Kvdpro stores bids in order to follow market developments regarding prices and to protect both buyers and sellers from bidding that is detrimental to the auction process.
Purpose of processing personal data
Technical and organisational security measures
We have taken several security measures to ensure that the personal data we process is secure: We have implemented security procedures and technical and organisational measures to protect your personal data, ensuring for example that passwords cannot be seen by anyone at Kvdpro and that forgotten passwords can only be restored through an email with a specific restoration link. Passwords are hashed which means they cannot be worked out backwards. All communication is encrypted, both external communication from Kvdpro and internal communication between systems. We also have the necessary firewalls and antivirus programs to protect the network and prevent unauthorised access. Access to the areas where personal data are stored is limited and employees must be identified before gaining access.
Special conditions for SMS dispatches
1. Mandatory SMS dispatches
When you create an account on kvdpro.com you must submit your mobile phone number. This must be submitted to us for you to a) be able to activate your account with a code which Kvdpro sends to you via SMS b) ensure that you are the one who created the account and have access to the mobile phone to which the SMS was sent.
Your mobile phone number also makes it easier for us to reach out to you quickly when you win an auction and to inform you of important information about, for example, payment and delivery. If you do not have a mobile phone you can contact our customer service on 0046 (0)10 - 165 14 00 and we will help you.
When you place a bid on an item on Kvdpro.com a box with the text " Notify me via SMS if I am overbidden” is displayed. If you tick this box you will always receive an SMS to your registered mobile phone number when someone places a bid above over yours. Note that there are no SMS messages sent out after an auction starts to count down. This is due to it taking a while for an SMS to arrive and the auction may have ended before you have seen that you have been outbid.
SMS in terms of a reminder of payment for your won object and SMS regarding, for example, pick-up/delivery can also occur.
2. Optional SMS dispatches
In order to improve your user experience, Kvdpro will, from 2019-01-25, offer all new members optional free SMS messages with news, information and offers. If you as a new member wish to receive these SMS you must, upon registration of your account, give us active consent to do this. You do this by filling in the box: ”Yes, I want to receive SMS from Kvdpro with news, information and offers”. If you have not filled in the box you will not receive these SMS messages. You will then only receive the SMS messages which are stated in section 1 “Special conditions for SMS dispatches”.
If for some reason you do not want to continue receiving the SMS messages according to section 2 in "Special conditions for SMS dispatches", you can easily deregister from them. If you live in Sweden, you do this by replying "PROSTOP" to the number from which the SMS was sent. If you do not live in Sweden, click on the deregistration link which is in the SMS.
According to current personal data legislation, you are entitled to receive information free of charge about the personal data about you that are processed, regardless of how they are collected. You have the right to have incorrect personal data about you rectified, to object to certain forms of processing of your personal data, to request that the processing of your personal data is limited, or that personal data are deleted. It should be noted that a restriction or deletion of your personal data may imply that Kvdpro is not able to fulfil its obligations under the agreement made with you as a member. You also have the right to request your personal data in a machine-readable format in order to transfer the data to another person in charge of personal data.
You must submit a written request to us if you want information about what personal data about you are being processed. According to current personal data legislation, you must send the request by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to the address below.
That is also the address you must use if you want to request the amendment of incorrect or misleading data, or request a restriction, or object to the processing of your personal data, or request you be completely forgotten and removed from Kvdpro’s systems.
