The information you will receive depends on how we categorize your customer type (developer, media, politician etc.). We use the personal and health data we collect for business development, communication, marketing and lobbying purposes, including:
- To send you newsletters, surveys and information about opportunities in the games industry in this region (legitimate interest)

2. How do you collect my data
We collect personal data that you voluntarily provide to us, for example when you communicate with us via email or other channels, when you visit our website, when you sign up for or ask us to send you newsletters and when you sign up for an event.
In some cases, your personal data have been supplemented by public information retrieved from other sources, including searches via available search engines, sector-specific newsletters, social media and your employer’s website, for the purpose of confirming your current professional position.
3. Sharing your personal data
We do not sell, hire out, distribute or otherwise make your personal data available to any third party with the following exceptions:
- Third party services for storage of personal data (CRM system)
- Social media (the data is stored on their servers)
- Google G-suite and Analytics
- Project personnel employed by other then Science City Skellefteå AB and procured consultants.
- Project financiers.
As a project we need to report our work to our financiers (Tillväxtverket, European Union etc.). When reporting they may get access to event pictures and information about how many individuals attended our events. If it is an event aimed at our member companies we also have to report how many individuals from each of the companies attended.
We do not share individual names with our financiers however, only numbers.
3.1 Third party storage
Arctic Game Lab might also use a service for a third party to collect and store your personal data as well as share your personal data with a third party in a non-EU country.
The processing of your personal data may therefore be regulated by data protection legislation that differs from the legislation in your country.
Personal data collected within the European Union can, for example, be transferred to and processed by third parties located in a country outside the European Union. In such cases, Arctic Game Lab will ensure that the transfer of your personal data is carried out in accordance with applicable data protection laws and, in particular, that appropriate contractual, technical and organizational measures are taken, such as the standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission.

5. Protection of your personal data
