How and when the Privacy Policy applies

If you are a visitor to a Scandlearn Website, a customer or a user of a Scandlearn Service, or a potential Scandlearn customer, then except as expressly set forth below, this Privacy Policy applies to you.

At Scandlearn, we recognize the importance of protecting the personal information we collect about you. Our Privacy Policy is designed to help you understand what information we collect and how we use and share that information. We provide information about data processing carried out by us, when we determine the purpose and means of the processing, and information on data processing we do on behalf of our customers based on their instructions (where the customer acts as data controller and Scandlearn acts as data processor).

As used in this Privacy Policy, “Scandlearn,” “us” and “we” refers to Scandinavian eTraining Center AB, Tranebergs Strand 11, 167 40, Stockholm - Bromma. The “Websites” means Scandlearn’s websites (including without limitation, and any successor URL’s, mobile or localized versions and related domains and subdomains owned by Scandlearn), and the “Services” means Scandlearn’s distribution, managing, communications and messaging products, applications and cloud services, in each case in whatever format they may be offered now or in the future. The Websites and Services are collectively referred to herein as the “Offerings”.

The personal data mentioned in no. 8 above is also processed to fulfill our legal obligations (as we are obligated to keep accounts).

Scandlearn as Data Processor

Scandlearn provides a cloud-based software as a service (SaaS) platform for e-learning and other services. The purposes and means of the processing of personal data related to end-users of Scandlearn’s platforms are determined by Scandlearn’s customers, acting as data controllers. Scandlearn will in these cases act as data processor, in accordance with instructions given by the customer. The relation between the customer as data controller and Scandlearn as data processor shall be regulated by a data processing agreement.

Sharing Your Information with Third Parties and use of Subcontractors
We do not sell, trade, share or transfer your personal information to third parties except when transferring data to other Scandlearn Products and Services.

We do, however, use subcontractors to process personal data and may export your or our customers data outside EU/EEA. Such subcontractors typically provide cloud services or other IT-related services to Scandlearn.

We will enter into data processing agreements when using subcontractors in order to safeguard your privacy rights and to fulfill obligations towards customers. When transfers are made outside the EU/EEA, Scandlearn ensures that such transfers are made under the Privacy Shield (US) or EU model clauses.

Scandlearn currently relies on the following subcontractors to provide business services:

  • Hubspot – provider of our Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system
  • Amazon Web Services – provider of our technical platform for cloud services
  • Stripe Payments Europe, Ltd – provider of our payment services
  • Userflow, Inc – provider of self-service support tools and interactive user guides
  • Mailchimp – provider of customer communication software
Other Access to or Disclosure of Your Information

The Offerings may also contain links to third party websites. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by us. Even if the third party is affiliated with us through a business partnership or otherwise, we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such third party. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the privacy policies of such third parties to determine how they handle any information they separately collect from you. Please be aware that we do not warn you when you choose to click through to another website when using the Offerings.

Your Controls and Choices


We may provide you with the opportunity to “opt-out” of having your personal information used for certain purposes when we ask for this information. If you decide to optout, we may not be able to provide certain features of the Offerings to you.

Communication Preferences

If you no longer wish to receive our newsletter and promotional communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included on such communications or on the Offerings. Please note, however, that you may be unable to opt-out of certain service-related communications.

Blocking Cookies

You can remove or block certain cookies using the settings in your browser but the Offerings may cease to function properly if you do so. For more information, please see Scandlearn's Cookie Policy.

How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals

Your Web browser may have a “do not track” setting which, when enabled, causes your browser to send a do not track HTTP header file or “signal” to each site you visit. At present, the Offerings do not respond to this type of signal.

Accessing, Storing and Updating Your Personal Information

When you use the Offerings, we provide you with access to your personal information upon your request and either provide you the means to correct this information if it is inaccurate or to delete such information at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes. You may access, review, correct, update, change or delete your information at any time. To do so, please contact us at [email protected] with your name and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed, or if you are using the Service, sign in to your account, go to your profile, and make the desired changes.

We may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes), jeopardize the privacy of others, would be extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required. In any case where we provide information access and correction, we perform this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort.

Please note that if you cease using the Service or we terminate your access to the Service, you may no longer have the ability to access or update your information.

We retain your information as long as necessary for the stated purpose, to comply with our legal obligations or to resolve disputes. When the personal data we have collected is no longer necessary we will erase it.

Changes to the Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to change our Privacy Policy at any time. If we make changes, we will post them and will indicate on this page the policy’s new effective date. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you by email or through notice on the Offerings.

No Children Under Age 13

The Offerings are not intended for use by anyone under the age of 13, nor does Scandlearn knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13. If you are under 13, you may not attempt to register for the Offerings or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address.

In the event that we confirm that we have collected personal information from someone under the age of 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information promptly. If you are a parent or legal guardian of a child under 13 and believe that we might have any information from or about such child, please contact us by email at [email protected]
