Generally about personal dataexpand_more

In order to safeguard the protection of personal privacy, the processing of personal data must be done in accordance with applicable data protection legislation. The central laws are mainly the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Swedish law (2018: 218) with supplementary provisions to the EU Data Protection Regulation (Data Protection Act).

Personal data means any information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person. All data that can be directly or indirectly linked to a living, natural person is a personal data. ‘Processing’ means any measure or combination of measures concerning personal data: collection, processing, storage, use, etc. constitutes processing of personal data.

Your information in public documentsexpand_more

By law, we as an authority are obliged to preserve public documents and to disclose them in accordance with the principle of publicity. A general document is, for example, mail or e-mail that comes to us or when we prepare and store documents. Since we are obliged to preserve public records, these can only be thinned if there are special decisions or regulations for thinning.

For you, this means that the information you provide to us becomes a general act. However, information in public documents may be covered by confidentiality in accordance with applicable confidentiality legislation and for that reason not disclosed. Confidentiality testing is done in each case.
