How we are processing personal data in relation to our program AI Sweden’s collaboration with Ignite for the Swedish AI Startup Landscape
Lindholmen Science Park have entered into a collaboration with SISP Service and Development AB (“Ignite Sweden”) for creating a mapping of Swedish AI Startups, an initiative called The Swedish AI Startup Landscape. In this project, the two parties collect data about startup companies in Sweden, which includes personal data. The data is collected through Ignite Sweden’s database Magic and the organizations are joint controllers for the collection of personal data in relation to The Swedish AI Startup Landscape.
The two parties have entered into an agreement that regulates the joint controllership. In accordance with mentioned agreement the respective organizations are responsible for providing you with the required information in accordance with the GDPR at the right time.
The organizations have agreed that Ignite Sweden is responsible for handling questions and requests from you as a data subject. If you have questions, or if you wish to make a request, we ask you to contact Ignite Sweden through the contact information provided here.

Transfer of personal data to countries outside the EU/EEA

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.
