Applied Acts and Articles

As data controller under the General Data Protection Regulation, SAFD is obliged to inform all data subjects about their rights in respect of processing of their data.

Personal data is registered in accordance with Article 6 of the General Data Protection Regulation. Sensible data, i.e. data on health or data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs or trade union membership, and data concerning a person’s sexual relations and sexual orientation is registered in accordance with Article 9 of the said Regulation. Processing of sensible data in research projects is covered by Section 10 of the Act on Data Protection. According to this Act, SAFD may only process sensible personal data and data concerning criminal convictions and offences, if the processing is aimed at statistical or scientific studies with potential public interest and if the processing is necessary to conduct the studies.

Processing and Storage

SAFD processes personal data confidentially. Personal data will be processed and stored in SAFDs it-systems. When the data is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was collected, it is deleted or filed in SAFDs records.

SAFD may store the data if it is part of a lawsuit or if SAFD is considering using the data in a lawsuit.

Disclosure of Information

Information will not be disclosed to anyone without the data subject being informed unless SAFD is obliged to disclose the information to other public authorities or unions/accredited representatives. These unions/accredited representatives are considered to be independent data controllers.

Data Insight

Data subjects may contact SAFD at any time to obtain copies of the information stored in SAFDs records or filing systems.

Correction of Information

If the data subject believes that incorrect information has been stored, they may ask SAFD to correct the information. The information will be corrected accordingly or it will be noted in the files that the person concerned has asked for a correction.

The data subject is entitled to the information being ignored until it is decided which information is correct. Data subjects are also entitled to request that SAFD does not use the information if it is no longer needed.


Data subjects have the right to object to the processing of information unless SAFD processes the information as part of a task assigned to SAFD by other authorities.

Withdrawal of Consent and The Right to Erasure of Information

If SAFD has obtained the consent of a data subject to process information, the data subject may at any time withdraw the consent. If the consent is withdrawn, SAFD may not continue to process information after the consent has been withdrawn.

The data subject has the right to erasure of information recorded by SAFD provided the information is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was collected.

The information must be erased also when the data subject withdraws the consent or in case the information has been processed unlawfully by mistake. The data subject has, however, no right to erasure of information that has been filed in the SAFDs archives in accordance with the Archives Act.


Data subjects are entitled to logde complaints about the processing of their data to the Data Protection Agency (Datatilsynet) via
