Right to access
You have the right to request to know whether Södertörn University processes your personal data, and to receive a free copy of the personal data that is processed. If you make repeated requests we will charge a fee to cover the administrative costs this incurs. In association with such a request, the university also provides additional information about this processing, such as its purpose, the categories of personal data that are processed, predicted storage time, etc.
Right to withdraw consent
When you provide your consent, you are also entitled to withdraw it at any time if you wish to do so. You do this by informing the person who processes your data that you would like to withdraw your consent. Withdrawal of consent does not apply to processing that is performed on a legal basis other than consent (e.g. the exercise of authority or public interest).
Right to data portability
In some cases, you are entitled to receive your personal data in a generally used format so you can transfer it to another data controller.
Right to correction
If you are registered, you have the right to have incorrect personal data about you corrected without delay. Considering the purpose of the processing, you also have the right to supplement incomplete personal data.
Right to erasure (to be forgotten)
In some cases, you have the right to have your personal data erased if it is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. For example, if you decide to stop studying and want us to erase your personal data.
There are exceptions to the right to erasure and the obligation for the data controller to inform others: if it is necessary to fulfil other important rights, such as the right to freedom of speech and information, to fulfil a legal duty, perform a task of public interest or as part of an exercise of public authority.
Right to submit a complaint to the Swedish Data Protection Authority
You have the right to complain to the Swedish Data Protection Authority about our processing of your personal data.
