Applied paragraphs

According to the rules in the Personal Data Regulation, SAFD, as data controller, must inform the registered persons about their rights in connection with the processing of the information.

SAFD registers and processes personal data pursuant to Article 6 of the Personal Data Regulation. Sensitive data, i.e. health data or data about race or ethnic origin, political, religious or philosophical beliefs or trade union affiliation as well as data about the person’s sexual relationship or sexual orientation are registered and processed pursuant to Article 9 of the Personal Data Regulation.

Processing of sensitive personal data in research projects is covered by Section 10 of the Data Protection Act. According to the Data Protection Act, SAFD may only process sensitive personal data and information relating to criminal convictions and offences, if it is done with a view to carrying out statistical or scientific studies of significant societal importance, and if the processing is necessary for the sake of carrying out the investigations.

Processing and storage

SAFD processes personal data confidentially. The personal data will be processed and stored in SAFD’s IT systems. When the information is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was collected, it will be deleted or archived in SAFD’s record system.

SAFD stores the information if it is part of a legal proceeding or if SAFD is considering using the information in a legal proceeding.

Disclosure of information

The information will not be passed on to others without the registered person being informed of this, unless SAFD is obliged to pass on the information to other public authorities or trade unions/union representatives. Trade unions and trade union representatives are considered in this respect as independent data controllers.

Data Insights

Registered persons can contact SAFD at any time in order to obtain a copy of the information contained in SAFD’s systems.

Correction of information

If the registered person believes that incorrect information has been registered, you can ask SAFD to correct the information. This means that SAFD corrects the information or notes that the information is incorrect and registers the correct information.

The registered person is entitled to the data controller disregarding the information until it has been determined which information is correct. Registered persons also have a claim that SAFD does not use the information if it is no longer needed.


Registered persons have the right to object to the processing of the information, unless SAFD processes the information as part of a task that SAFD has been assigned by other authorities.

Revocation and deletion

If SAFD has obtained consent from the registered person to process the information, the registered person will be able to revoke the consent at any time. SAFD cannot therefore continue to process the information after consent has been withdrawn.

The registered person has the right to have information that SAFD has registered about the person in question deleted, if the information is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. The information is also deleted if the data subject revokes consent to the processing or if the information has been processed illegally by mistake. The registered person is not entitled to the deletion of information that is archived in accordance with the rules of the Archives Act in SAFD’s record system.

Use of personal data

We never collect personal data without you having given us this information yourself by e.g. registration for an event, registration for a newsletter, etc. This typically collects information about name, address, postcode, e-mail, field of study or interests. SAFD does not pass on or sell any personal data to third parties.

Protection of personal data

According to the Data Protection Act and the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), your personal information must be stored securely and confidentially. We store your personal information on restricted-access computers located in controlled facilities, and our security measures are reviewed on an ongoing basis to determine whether our user information is handled appropriately, always respecting your rights as a user. However, we cannot guarantee 100 percent security of data transfers via the Internet. This means that there may be a risk of others unjustifiably forcing access to information when data is sent and stored electronically. You thus submit your personal information at your own risk.

The rapid development of the internet means that changes in our processing of personal data may become necessary. We therefore reserve the right to update and change these guidelines for the processing of personal data.

Contact regarding personal data

To the extent that personal data about you is processed, according to the Data Protection Act and the Personal Data Regulation, you have the right to be informed of which personal data can be attributed to you. If it turns out that the information or data processed about you is incorrect or misleading, you have the right to demand that this be corrected, deleted or blocked. You can object at any time to information about you being processed. You can also revoke your consent at any time.

You also have the right to be deleted from SAFD’s databases (Right to be erased) and the right to have all history of your behavior deleted (Right to be forgotten).

You have the opportunity to complain about the processing of information and data concerning you. Complaints are submitted to the Danish Data Protection Authority, cf. section 58, subsection of the Personal Data Act. 1.

If you want to be informed about what data SAFD has about you, you must contact SAFD on the contact details below.
