These servers host Filterly with a data storage provider. Filterly needs to store the personal data with this provider in order to provide its service. Filterly has a legitimate interest in being able to store data with the provider (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR). Filterly ensures that that processing is necessary to pursue that interest, and that our interest outweighs your interest in the protection of your fundamental rights. You have the right to object to this processing, due to circumstances in your individual case. You can find more information about your rights in Section 5.

  1. Your rights

You have certain rights according to the GDPR regarding the personal data that we process about you. If you wish to exercise any of your rights below, please contact us. Contact details for Filterly can be seen from Part 1 of this document.

Right of access

You have the right to access the personal data we process about you, a so-called register extract. This means that you have the right to receive, free of charge, a copy of which personal data we process about you, the purposes of the processing and the category of personal data to which the processing applies.

Withdraw consent

If you have given your consent to certain treatment, you always have the right to withdraw your consent. However, this does not affect the legality of the processing.

Right to rectification

You have the right to have inaccurate personal data concerning you corrected without undue delay. When you discover that there are errors in the information we have registered about you, you can contact us to have your information corrected. You also have the right to complete incomplete information we have about you.

Right to erasure

You also have the right in certain cases to demand that we delete all or some of your personal data provided that it is not necessary for us to retain this data in order to fulfill our legal obligations. You have the right to have your data deleted

  • the personal data are no longer necessary for the purpose of the processing,
  • you withdraw your consent on which the processing is based,
  • if you have objected to the processing and we are not considered to have a legitimate interest,
  • the personal data has been processed in an illegal manner

To the extent that it is necessary to continue processing your personal data, for example to fulfill our legal obligations, we are not obliged to delete your personal data. This means that certain data can be stored until we are no longer obliged to process them. Data that we must store due to legal, statutory or contractual retention obligations will be blocked instead of deleted, so that it cannot be used for other purposes.


You also have the right to request that the processing of personal data be limited for a shorter period of time. A restriction can be made for several reasons.

  • If you dispute that the personal data we process is correct, you can request limited processing during the time we work to check whether the personal data is correct.
  • If you require us to delete your data but we cannot comply with the request. For example, it may be because we need the information we have about you to establish, assert or defend legal claims. In these cases, you can request limited processing of the data with us.
  • If you have objected to a balance of interests of legitimate interest that we have made as a legal basis for a purpose. Then you can request limited processing during the time we work to check whether our legitimate interests outweigh your interests in having the data deleted.

In the event that the processing has been restricted according to any of the situations above, we may only, in addition to the storage itself, process the data to establish, assert or defend legal claims, to protect someone else’s rights or because you have given your consent.

Objection regarding balance of interests

When processing takes place with the support of a balancing of interests (legitimate interest), you have the right to object to the processing, due to circumstances in your individual case. A continued processing of your personal data requires us to show a justified reason for the current processing. Otherwise, we may only process the data to establish, exercise or defend legal claims. You also have the right to object to direct marketing.

Data portability

This means a right to, under certain conditions, obtain and transfer your personal data in a structured, generally used and machine-readable format to another personal data controller. A prerequisite for data portability is that the transfer is technically possible and can take place automatically, and that Filterly processes your personal data based on your consent or to fulfill an agreement.

Right to complain

If you believe that we are processing your personal data inadequately or in violation of the GDPR, you have the right to file a complaint with the Swedish Data Protection Authority. For more information and contact details, please see

Changes to the Privacy Policy

To ensure that our privacy policy always meets applicable legal requirements, we reserve the right to make changes at any time. It also applies when the privacy policy needs to be changed to apply to new or revised treatments.
