This website privacy policy describes the practices and policies of Q-linea AB and its

We believe that protecting personal data is important and strive to design our website with
respect for the privacy of our users. Our basic principle is to not process more personal data
than necessary, and to use the least integrity-sensitive data as possible.

Personal data we collect and how we use it

Personal data is data relating to an identified or identifiable person. We process names, e-mail
addresses, titles, job titles and country information provided to us via website contact forms.
Personal data is processed to take requested actions such as answering questions or sending
material. Personal data may also be used for direct marketing to recipients in their
professional role, customer- and market analyses, invitations to meetings and other
professional contacts regarding our products and services.

When visiting the site and when downloading documents, we automatically process
information that under certain circumstances may constitute personal data. This includes data
about time, date, downloaded file, file size, volume of transferred data, web browser,
language settings, operating system, referral domain, and IP address. The purpose of
processing this kind of information is to provide an interesting, secure, and user-friendly

Legal basis

The legal basis for our processing of personal data is a legitimate interest in marketing our
services and products, communicating with customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders as
well as offering an interesting, secure, and user-friendly website. In some cases, the legal
reason is that the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil an agreement or to act at
the request of the person who provided the personal data before an agreement is reached. In
respect of cookies, the legal basis is consent. Further information on this processing can be
found in the section on cookies and similar techniques below.

Retention of your personal data

In general, we do not store personal data beyond what is necessary to fulfil the purpose of the
processing. How long we retain specific personal information varies depending on the purpose
of its use and we may delete or retain your personal information in accordance with applicable
law. We will delete personal data if you request it to be removed or if we are informed that the
personal data we process is out of date. Please refer to the section” About your rights” for
more detailed information.

Transfer of your personal data

Our basic principle is to not disclose personal data to independent third parties unless it is
necessary to fulfil our obligations under agreement or law. This is, for example, our partners
and suppliers in areas such as information security, IT, shipping and logistics, finance, sales,
and marketing. If our company is included, or may be included, in a group, your data may
also be shared with companies within the Group. We do not sell your personal data or allow
any third party, for any reason, to use for their own purposes, personal data that has been
provided to us. The exception is certain technical information that, under special conditions, is
shared with third parties.

Security of your personal data

We have routines and procedures for securely managing your personal data. Only people in
our organisation who need personal data to perform their duties should have access to them.
Our security systems are designed to protect against intrusion, destruction, and other changes
that could lead to privacy risks. The personal data submitted via forms on our website is
protected by encryption during transfer to our servers.

International data transfers

We process information collected from or about you in any country in which Q-linea operates
directly or indirectly through partners.

In some cases, Q-linea may transfer your personal data to countries which have been determined
as having an adequate level of data protection. In exceptional circumstances, any information
you provide or that we may collect may also be used, processed, and transferred to countries or
territories that may not offer the same level of data protection under applicable laws. We will
then take all reasonable legal, technical, and organisational measures to ensure that your
information is handled securely and with an adequate level of protection.

Please contact us at for any questions related to data transfer.


Our website is directed toward adults and Q-linea does not knowingly collect information
from anyone under the age of 18. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child
has provided us with information without their consent, he or she should contact us. We will
delete such information from our files as soon as reasonably practicable. We encourage
parents with concerns to contact us.


Our website occasionally contains links to other websites. The websites are usually not under
our control and are not covered by this Privacy Policy, so you are encouraged to review their
website privacy policy before submitting your personal data.

How we collect and use website data

When you visit our site, we collect logs that contain network identifiers and time stamps. We
collect this data so that we can see how many users visit our site. Our legal basis for
processing is our legitimate interest in knowing how our site is used. The data collected
through these logs is immediately identified and is therefore not saved in our systems.

About cookies and similar techniques

A cookie is a small piece of data (text file) placed on your computer, smartphone, or tablet
when you browse a website. Some of the cookies we use on are essential for the

use our site so that we can make informed decisions about improvements to the site and get a
good understanding of the kind of content our visitors like to read.

Generally, cookies can be grouped into five types for most websites:

  • Necessary Cookies: These are essential for the website to function, such as secure
    login, loading images, or allowing you to select your cookie preferences.

    can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which
    pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site.

    and personalisation, such as videos and live chat. They may be set by the website or

    can also be used to create profiles. These are often set by third parties.
  • Social Media Cookies: These cookies allow the sharing of content on social media
    channels, such as Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube.

Finally, the cookie durations or length of time a cookie is enabled on your device is split into
two categories:

    automatically once you close your browser.
  • Permanent Cookies: These survive after your browser is closed. They can be used by
    the website to recognise your computer when you open your browser and browse the
    Internet again unless you take steps to delete them.
