General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) begins to apply on 25 May 2018 and replaces the Swedish Personal Data Act (PuL). The overall objective is to ensure and strengthen the individual’s right to his or her private life through the protection of personal data. This means that the individual, when KTH in any way processes his or her personal data, has the right to insight into how and why the information was processed and can upon request have that information transferred to a different external party (companies, authorities, etc.). GDPR entails a tightening of the rules in PuL, but also sets some new requirements.
