The history of Sturebadet
A couple of times every century, people appear who, with their knowledge and visionary qualities, change the development of society and who contribute to improvements, reforms and increased welfare. Carl Curman, doctor and balneologist, was one of those people whose community efforts still leave significant traces. His vision was to give people bathing, exercise and better health, and in 1885 his creation Sturebadet was completed. It became a health palace that became very important in Sweden at the time, when homes often lacked bathrooms. Balneology - the study of the different types of baths and their medical significance was Curman's specialty and he introduced spas and massage treatments at Sturebadet which led to improved health and increased quality of life for the bath's visitors.
Inspiration from Venice
In the 1870s, Stureplan did not look like it does today. What is now a vibrant nerve in central Stockholm with restaurants, nightlife and palace-like stone houses was built with low wooden dwellings and plantations. Carl Curman found that aesthetics and beauty were important components of well-being, and it was generally believed that harmony was good for physical and mental health. Finding inspiration in the Italian city of Venice, where the Venetian palaces were like drawings with divine brushstrokes, became of course a matter for a man who wanted to create something similar in a Nordic city. It was the Renaissance palace Ca ’Vendramin Calergi in Venice that stood as a model for the facade that became Sturebadets. In this way, Curman captured with an absolute ear the dream of the continent in the form of beauty and mystery.
Another time and another life
When Sturebadet was opened to the public, the bathing palace was a reflection of the prevailing social classes of the time. There were first, second and third classes and each class had its own floor. Not even as undressed were all the same. The Turkish Bath was a male-dominated establishment and it is said that the internationally known film star Greta Garbo got women to visit "Damturken" in the Turkish Bath. It's 20s and a couple of years before the war breaks out and the old world disappears.
Sturebadet is on fire
The decades took turns and Sturebadet became an important social institution and a landmark in Stockholm. On May 30, 1985, a fire occurred, threatened to put an end to a glorious bathing and health. The owners, Stockholms Badhus and Skandia, decided to restore the bath after the fire disaster. Old drawings had been lost, but fortunately Stockholms Badhus had compiled a photo documentation of Sturebadet only a few weeks before the fire. If it was a man who founded Sturebadet, it was two women who took it further into the future. Sturebadet would not have been completed without the co-owner Charlotte Wall's goal-oriented and energetic work during the reconstruction phase. Kerstin Florian, who brought the spa culture to Sweden, saw the potential and became a partner. Her treatment concept and products contributed to Sturebadet becoming the first spa facility on the Swedish market. After a careful and well-thought-out renovation work, Sturebadet was reopened in 1989 and today has a cultural-historical interest and is largely under K-brand protection.

Sturebadet sometimes processes special categories of personal data. This applies to information about health and trade unions. For example, handling a booking where someone is allergic requires consent and is therefore only done where the guest himself states this.
3. Legal reason
The processing of personal data takes place on the legal basis that Sturebadet must be able to fulfill an agreement. The agreement covers both purchases per se and agreements on membership terms that give both rights and obligations to the parties. As our products are rare goods, we keep personal data received for 24 months. The reason is to make booking easier for customers who visit us regularly. However, customers can at any time request to have their personal data deleted, if we do not have an ongoing business transaction with each other. The legal basis may in some cases also be consent. This applies to the people who are part of our interest club "Sturebadets Gästlista" *, where the people themselves have registered their participation to receive news, offers and invitations.
With regard to the processing of personal data in order to fulfill requirements, such as the Accounting Act, the VAT Act and the Consumer Purchase Act, the legal basis for processing is a legal obligation. * This applies to Sturebadet AB. The same is also available at Sturebadet Marina Tower AB and is then called "Sturebadet Marina's Guest List".
4. Personal data controller and personal data assistants
The person responsible for personal data is the person who is responsible for the processing of personal data and decides why and how personal data is processed. Each company is responsible for personal data to ensure that current legislation is complied with at all times.
To be able to deliver our services, Sturebadet uses personal data assistants. This means that Sturebadet is responsible for personal data and decides which personal data is processed and why, but that we outsource parts of the processing. These are, for example, IT solutions such as storage and booking systems. Sturebadet then decides on the treatment and is responsible for it, but takes help from other suppliers to be able to deliver their services. Sturebadet always enters into a personal data assistant agreement with personal data assistants to safeguard a high level of protection for all data. The agreements state that our personal data assistants do not have the right to process our data for their own purposes. Your personal data will never be sold or transferred to any third party other than our personal data assistants.
Sturebadet discloses your personal data to the following types of personal data assistants:
Suppliers of IT systems in development and support. These companies provide services, technical solutions and platforms for Sturebadet's administration.
Partners who handle payment. To handle payments made by Sturebadet's customers, we use suppliers to guarantee secure payment solutions.
Partners who administer our customer surveys.
