GDPR and the processing of personal data

Gdpr (General Data Protection Regulation) is a new data protection regulation that took effect throughout the EU from 25 May 2018. Gdpr replaces the previous Personal Data Act and aims to create a uniform and equal level of protection of personal data.

The overall purpose of gdpr is to ensure people's right to the protection of their personal data and thus the right to privacy. Personal data is any kind of information that can be directly or indirectly attributed to a natural person who is alive. It does not have to be personal or birth numbers, but can be enough with name, school, address and other seemingly harmless information.

Your personal data is important to us and we work to always comply with applicable legislation regarding the protection of personal data. Liljevalchs only processes the data necessary for us to fulfil our obligations to you or for us to send you information that you have consented to.

We handle your personal data according to gdpr but it is important that you know that all documents received by us become public documents because we are a municipal business. In the case of public documents, archival legislation takes precedence over the gdpr's provisions on the maximum retention period for personal data.

Personal data provided in connection with the application to Vårsalongen is used for communication with the applicant and for marketing communication for the grants selected to participate in Vårsalongen. The data is then stored in accordance with the Archives Act and is thus available for future research.
