We share your personal data with third parties that process personal data on our behalf, so called processors, e.g., supplier of the supply-, support and maintenance of IT- and cloud services, etc. or joint controllers with Lindholmen Science Park, if such transfer is required by applicable law, or if we have another legal ground for such transfers, e.g., third parties that are acting as host organizations to one of our programs, for example as with the program AI Sweden, and therefore need to access some personal data to be able to fulfill their contractual obligations and undertakings followed by the collaboration agreement between the respective host organization and Lindholmen Science Park AB regulating their work within AI Sweden. We have provided specific information about how AI Sweden collaborates with such host-organizations and how this affects the processing of your personal data on AI Sweden’s website, here.

In cases where our processors are transferring or processing personal data outside the EU/EEA, such processing is based either on a decision from the European Commission establishing that the country in question ensures an adequate level of protection or appropriate safeguards that ensure that your rights are protected such as standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission and supplementary security measures to such standard contractual clauses when necessary.
