H&M works to ensure your privacy is protected when using our services. We therefore have a policy setting out how your personal data will be processed and protected. Any changes we have made to this data policy can be found by visiting our website.
We take responsibility for all the personal data – such as your name, address, email address, phone number, date of birth, etc. – that you provide us with or that we obtain through purchases, when you order catalogues, subscribe to our newsletter or when you create a personal account on hm.com.
The parent company – H & M Hennes & Mauritz AB – is acting as the party responsible for your personal data under the Swedish Personal Data Act (1998:204) and EU Directive 95/46/EC. The H&M Hennes & Mauritz AB subsidiaries are acting as personal data processors on behalf of the parent company. Your personal details are maintained in Sweden and processed within the H&M group, in a few cases also outside the EEA.
How do we use your personal data?
We use the information that we collect to fulfill our commitments to you and to provide you with the service that you expect. This includes sending you information and offers for marketing purposes. In order to provide you with relevant offers and information we may analyze your personal data. We will only keep your data for as long as necessary to carry out our services or for as long as we are required by law.
Who has access to the data?
We never pass on/sell/swap your data to/with third parties for marketing purposes outside H & M Hennes & Mauritz AB. Data that is forwarded to third parties is used only to meet H & M Hennes & Mauritz AB’s commitments to you.
We take responsibility for all the personal data that we receive during recruitment or in competitions. These details are processed within the country organisation where you have directed your application while the data is stored in the United Kingdom. Your country organisation is also the party responsible for your personal data under the data protection act of that specific jurisdiction. If you have any questions regarding your application and your personal details, please find the contact information for your country H&M organisation at hm.com under “Contact Us”.
In registering your interest or submitting an application to us you allow us to process your personal data as part of our recruitment process. We then only store your details as agreed. It is H&M Hennes & Mauritz AB’s policy not to request sensitive information from applicants via our website, and you will not need to submit sensitive information (e.g. racial/ethnic origin, political views, religious/philosophical convictions, membership of trade unions, health, sex life) when you register your interest or send your application to us. We always try to respond to applications as quickly as possible.
