We share personal information with:
- Third party vendor who processes personal data on our behalf. For example, to handle payment, shipping and distribution of e-mail.
- Other third parties to comply with Swedish law, e.g. government request or court decision.

We will only store your data for as long as is necessary to carry out our obligations to you in order to defend legal claims and as long as required by statutory storage times.
Customer service case data and user reviews are normally saved 6 months after the case is closed. For orders, we store the necessary information (name, address, email) for accounting for up to 7 years according to Swedish Accounting Laws. Information needed to execute the order, follow up on orders and handle any repurchases and complaints we normally save for 1 year from your last purchase.
