Privacy Policy

We work to ensure a high level of data protection that safeguards your privacy when using our website. This privacy policy therefore explains how your personal data is processed and protected, your rights and how you can assert them. We strive for you to feel secure in our processing of your personal data. If you have any questions, please contact us. You can find our contact details at the bottom of this page.

Who is responsible for the personal data we collect?

Somco Music Group AB, VAT: SE556260034501, Svärdvägen 21, 182 33 Danderyd, Sweden, is the personal data controller for the personal data you provide to us through purchases and other contact with us and is responsible for processing these.

Where is your personal data stored?

We aim for your personal data to be processed as much as possible within the European Economic Area (EEA) and all our own IT systems, but may also be transferred and processed in a country outside the EEA (so-called "third country"). Such transfer only takes place to recipient countries with an adequate level of protection and in accordance with current legislation. If transfer takes place to a partner for a service in the US, this only happens to companies covered by the so-called "Privacy Shield", which is an agreement on the protection of personal data between the EU and the US.

What kind of personal data do we collect?

We collect personal data that you send to us when you place orders on our website, sign up for our newsletter or participate in any competitions. The personal data you send to us may include, for example, contact information, date of birth and payment information. We may also collect certain personal data from external partners such as address information from public records and information about creditworthiness from credit rating agencies, banks or credit reference agencies.

How do we use your personal data?

We may use your personal data for the following purposes:

  • When processing orders and returns in our webshop

  • In case of SMS notifications about delivery status

  • In case of contacts regarding any problems with your delivery

  • correspondence about questions and other information

  • When sending out offers in the form of newsletters, always with instructions on how you can unsubscribe from further mailings

  • When analyzing purchase patterns to provide relevant offers and information

  • When confirming the legal minimum age to shop online

  • When announcing winners in competitions that we arrange

  • In case of sending surveys to improve our services and offers

  • For work that prevents abuse or other inappropriate use of our website

We save your data for as long as it is necessary to fulfill the above purposes or as long as we are obliged to do so by law. Your personal data will then be deleted.

What are your rights?

You have the right to request information about the personal data we hold about you at any time. If your data is incorrect, incomplete or irrelevant, you can request to have it corrected or deleted. We cannot delete your data when there is a statutory storage requirement, such as accounting rules, or when there are other legitimate reasons why the data must be saved, such as unpaid invoices. You can withdraw your consent to let us use the data for marketing at any time by unsubscribing from our newsletter. You can also contact us by sending a letter, e-mail or calling. See contact details below.

Who can we share your personal data with?

In order for us to be able to offer the aforementioned services and our commitments to you as a customer, we share your personal data with companies that are so-called personal data assistants for us. Personal data processors process the information on our behalf and according to our instructions and help us with IT services, payment services, transport and marketing. This is done only for purposes for which we have collected the information and only to companies that can provide sufficient guarantees regarding the security and confidentiality of personal data.

We never pass on, sell or exchange your personal data for marketing purposes to third parties.

How do we protect your personal data?

In order to prevent your personal data sent to our website from being read by outsiders, all such information is encrypted and sent via a secure connection.
