The scope of this Privacy Notice

The Privacy Notice covers our processing of personal data in relation to the Hand Scan. It describes the processing activities which will be conducted by Mölnlycke as well as your rights in relation to the processing of your personal data and how you may exercise them.

How we collect your personal data

We will obtain your personal data as described herein directly from you when you use the Hand Scan or when you engage with one of our sales representatives and such representative assists you to complete a Hand Scan. Completing a Hand Scan will involve a step where you or the sales representative will scan your hand (i.e., take a picture of your hand), and from this image we will be able to measure your hand size, including palm width and finger length. This is described in more detail under the section below.

How we process your personal data

We only process your personal data to the extent permitted in accordance with applicable data protection legislation. This means inter alia that we need to have a legal basis for the purposes for processing your personal data, which in the Hand Scan context means the following legal basis:

Legitimate interests – the processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party, provided that they are not overridden by your interests or fundamental rights or freedoms (in which case the processing would not be allowed).

Below, we explain more about the categories of personal data we process, for what purposes we process them and for how long we store your personal data.

To provide you with the Personalised Hand Performance Report and relevant product recommendations

What we do and why:

We will process your personal data for the purpose of generating and providing you with your requested Personalised Hand Performance Report, which is done by sending it to your email address.

The Personalised Hand Performance Report will include tailored product recommendations, which are provided on the basis of your personal data used to complete the Hand Scan.

The personal data that we process:

  • Diversity data; including gender, age, professional role, speciality and location.
  • Measured hand image; derived from the hand scanning.
  • Contact information; including email address.

Our legal basis for processing:

Legitimate interest, wherein our legitimate interest is to generate and provide you with the Personalised Hand Performance Report (including product recommendations), which you have requested from us.  

How we share and transfer your data:

We will share your personal data with the following recipients;

  • Suppliers of IT-services; and
  • Our Mölnlycke affiliates

Mölnlycke will not transfer your personal data to countries outside the EU/EEA within the scope of this processing activity. 

How long we keep your data:

We will process and keep your personal data for the period of time you are using the mobile application and the time required to send you the Personalised Hand Scan Report. The collected data will be transformed into anonymised data after sending the Personalised Hand Scan Report. Such anonymous data cannot directly identify you as a person and may be processed by us for an indefinite period of time. For the sake of clarity, this anonymised data is not personal data.

Security measures

We have taken measures to ensure that your personal data is handled in a safe way. For example, access to systems where personal data is stored is limited to our employees and service providers who require it in the course of their duties. Such parties are informed of the importance of maintaining security and confidentiality in relation to the personal data we process. We maintain appropriate safeguards and security standards to protect your personal data against unauthorised access, disclosure or misuse. We also monitor our systems to discover vulnerabilities.

Third country transfers

We strive to always process your personal data within the EU/EEA. However, if a third country transfer is described in the tables under section 4 above, we will transfer your personal data to Mölnlycke’s affiliates that are located or have business activities in a country outside the EU/EEA. In such cases, we are responsible for ensuring that the transfer is made in accordance with applicable data protection legislation before it occurs, e.g., by ensuring that the country in which the recipient is located ensures an adequate level of data protection according to the European Commission, or by ensuring appropriate safeguards based on the use of standard contractual clauses that the European Commission has adopted and other appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms.

You may access a list of the countries that the European Commission has decided provide an adequate level of data protection here.

You may access the European Commission’s standard contractual clauses at here.

You have rights in relation to us and our processing of your personal data. Below, you will find information about your rights and how you can exercise them.

Please note that your rights apply to the extent that follows from applicable data protection legislation and that there may be exceptions to the rights where applicable. We also ask you to note that we may need more information from you in order to e.g., confirm your identity before proceeding with your request to exercise your rights.

If you object, we must demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms in order to be allowed to continue with our processing.
