If you wish to subscribe to our press releases and/or financial reports, you will need to provide us with your e-mail address. Kinnevik does not use your e-mail address for any other purpose than sending press releases and financial reports that you have chosen to subscribe to.

Legal basis

We process your personal data when it is neccessary to fulfil an agreement or a request from you and to respond to questions asked through our communication functions. We also process your personal data when we have a legitimate and valid interest in processing your personal data, e.g. an interest of supplying press releases, financial reports and/or other information to you or an interest of developing and improving our services and our website and to send targeted content and advertising to you. We also process your personal data when required to fulfil an obligation in law or to respond to a request from an authority.

We will only process your personal data for the purpose for which we collected such data. Should we need to process your personal data for any other purpose or a purpose which requires your consent under data protection legislation, we will inform you of such purpose respectively obtain your consent in advance.

Security and disclosure of Your personal data

Your personal data will always be processed confidentially and be protected by appropriate technical and organisational security measures. Your personal data will be shared with other companies within the Kinnevik group and may be shared with third parties if required under law, regulations or an official decision by a relevant authority. 

We may engage external partners and suppliers to perform services on our behalf, e.g. to provide IT services or to assist in external communication. The performance of such services may entail such parties, both within and outside of the EU/EEA, obtaining access to your personal data. Companies which are processing personal data on behalf of Kinnevik are obliged to sign an agreement with Kinnevik in order to ensure a high level of protection for your personal data. For partners located outside the EU/EEA, additional protective measures are undertaken, e.g. by signing of an agreement which includes the European Commission’s standard contractual clauses for data transfers, which can be found on the European Commission’s website.

Storage period

Personal data related to your visit to our website is only stored for as long as it is necessary in order to fulfil the purpose of the processing, or for as long as Kinnevik is required to store such data by law. The data is thereafter erased in accordance with Kinnevik’s erasure procedure. We will keep your contact information only during the time you subscribe to press releases and/or financial reports. After this, the data will be erased.
