What is a personal information?
Any kind of information that can be directly or indirectly attributed to a natural person who is alive is personal data. Examples of personal information may be personal name, social security number, e-mail address and postal address. Likewise, photos and audio recordings of individuals processed in computer personal data even if no names are mentioned, as are electronic identities; for example, ip number.

How long do we store your personal data?
Personal data is stored as long as they are necessary for the purpose.

You can read more about the storage times that apply to the processing of your personal data in Region Halland's document management plans.
Who do we share your personal information with?
In situations where it is necessary for Region Halland to be able to conduct the region's activities, we share your personal data with other companies, which are so-called personal data assistants to us. When your personal data is shared with personal data assistants, it only happens for purposes that are compatible with the purposes for which Region Halland has collected the information.
Region Halland also shares your personal information with companies or other organizations that are independently responsible for personal data. When your personal data is shared with independent personal data managers, it only happens for Region Halland to be able to fulfill the region's mission, or because we are obliged to do so by law.
Where do we process your personal information?
Region Halland always strives to process your personal data in Sweden or within the EU / EEA. However, sometimes Region Halland may have to transfer your personal data to a country outside the EU / EEA, for example if we share your personal data with a supplier that is established or stores the personal data in a country outside the EU / EEA. Regardless of the country in which your personal data is processed, Region Halland takes all reasonable legal, technical and organizational measures to ensure that the level of protection is the same as in the EU / EEA.
In cases where personal data is processed outside the EU / EEA, the level of protection is guaranteed either by a decision of the EU Commission that the country in question ensures an adequate level of protection or by the use of so-called appropriate safeguards. Examples of suitable safeguards are standard contract clauses or binding corporate regulations. If you would like a copy of the safeguards that have been taken or information about where these have been made available, you are welcome to contact us.
How is your data protected?
Region Halland protects your privacy. Region Halland is therefore constantly working to take all appropriate technical and organizational measures that are required in each individual case to protect your personal data and otherwise ensure that the processing is carried out in accordance with applicable law.
The principle of public
Region Halland is covered by the principle of publicity, which means, among other things, that messages sent to us normally become public documents. Region Halland is obliged to disclose information in public documents upon request, unless the information is covered by confidentiality. The rules on public documents and public records may also impose restrictions on some of your rights regarding your personal data.
What rights do you have?

Right to correction
If you notice incorrect, misleading or incomplete information about yourself, you can request correction.
Right to be deleted
In some situations, you have the right to request that your personal data be deleted ("the right to be forgotten"), for example, if your personal data has been processed illegally. However, you cannot have your information deleted if there are legal obligations or rights for us to keep the data or if the processing is done in accordance with the Public and Privacy Act.
