Data protection

Registration and processing of personal data is often necessary but you have the right to a protected zone. The Swedish Constitution states that you are to be protected against your personal privacy being violated through information about you being processed by computer.

The purpose of The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is to protect individuals' fundamental rights and freedoms, in particular their right to protection of their personal data.

GDPR applies throughout the European Union and its purpose is to create a uniform and harmonised level for the protection of personal data so that the free movement of personal data within the European Union is not hindered.

The Swedish Authority for Privacy Protection has been tasked with ensuring that this protection is effective. On these pages you find more information about the regulation and our work with data protection.
