Personal data

Personal data is any information which may be used to identify an individual, such as name and contact details. When and how personal data may be used is regulated in the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (“GDPR”).  

The Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth and the Swedish Companies Registration Office are the controllers for the data that is collected for

Legal basis and purpose of the processing of personal data gathers service and information from several authorities in one place. Everything to make it easier for those currently running or intending to start a company. For this purpose, it is sometimes necessary to process personal data. The legal basis is, above all, what is known in the GDPR as the public interest. The national legal basis can be found in authority regulations, or in specific register excerpts.

Agreements can also be a legal basis – if a service that you choose to use requires the processing of personal data.

We only use personal data for the purposes for which we collect them and only for as long as is necessary for the purpose.

What rights do you have?

You have the right to know if we possess personal data about you, and in such cases, what kind of data. You also have the right to request the correction or transfer of data which you have disclosed to us or that we restrict the processing of such data.

If we are using your data with your consent, you have the right to change your mind and withdraw your consent.

In some cases, you may also have the right to have your personal data erased. If we receive such a request, we will review it in accordance with the applicable legislation.  

However, we do not have the right to erase data that is saved in our archive according to the Archives Act.

Personal data often constitute public documents

As is run by government agencies, the principle of public access to official documents applies. This means that all documents, including personal data, which do not constitute work material are public documents and therefore may be disclosed to anyone making a request. However, in some cases, data may be considered to be classified and therefore shall not be disclosed.
