What Does "Personal Data" Mean
Personal data is information that can be associated with you individually. Examples of this include, but are note limited to: your name, address, postal address, telephone number or email address. Non-personal data is information such as the number of users of a site.
Collection, Processing and Use of Personal Data by SIXT
Personal data are collected on this website if you provide them voluntarily, for example by filling out forms, sending emails or requesting a vehicle quotation. We use this information for the purpose for which it was originally intended or for purpose arising from the original inquiry. Commercial use of the data is done solely for the purpose of our own promotion (including advertising) and market research within the framework of the relevant legal regulations. Transfer of the data to third parties occurs only when it is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract, for example to registration offices for the vehicle registration or the shipment of vehicle registration documents, to regulatory authorities for the registration of the vehicle or to public order and road traffic authorities for administrative investigations into a traffic violation. If third parties are engaged as part of the contract for certain tasks, they act as a contract data processor according to Swedish personuppgiftslagen (PuL). These companies are thus under a contractual obligation to handle personal data solely in the context of the specific task and according to the instructions from SIXT. Data are stored on servers in EU.
You can use the general information on www.sixt-leasing.com without disclosing your personal data.
We use your email address to provide you with offers on products or services similar to those you have already requested or used. You can object to this use of your email address at any time without incurring any costs other than the cost of data transmission according to the applicable rates. The easiest way to do this is by using the link at the bottom of our email. You may also send your objection to email@example.com.
Furthermore we point out that you can object to the use of your data for advertising purposes, market or opinion research at any time. The objection must be sent to: Sixt Leasing Sweden, Code: Objection, Jörgen Kocksgatan 4, 211 20 Malmö, Sweden, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If we wish to use personal information for an additional purpose which requires your consent under the statutory provisions, we will ask you each time for your explicit consent. You can revoke previously given consent at any time. In accordance with statutory requirements, we can for the purpose of advertising, market research or to improve our Internet services create user profiles which use a pseudonym, but only if you have not objected to this.
Security, TLS Technology
SIXT has taken technical and organisational measures to protect your personal data, in particular against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction, or access by unauthorised persons. These security measures are continually updated in line with technology developments. The transfer of personal data between you and our server is always encrypted using TLS (Transport Layer Security).
