Personal data

Överkalix Municipality wants to ensure that you can submit information and know that it will be handled securely. That is why it is important for us to inform you exactly how we handle personal data. 

Personal data is processed by Överkalix Municipality in a variety of contexts. It is always information that is necessary for us to provide the services and support that you are entitled to.

From May 25 2018 a new data protection law (General Data Protection Regulation, GDPR) entered into force in all of the European Union including Sweden. This law replaces the previous Personal Data Protection Act and is intended to protect the right to personal privacy. 

What is personal data?

Personal data is any kind of information that can be attributed to a physical person who is alive. For example, it can be your name, address, social security number or pictures that show who you are. The processing of personal data means everything that we do when we handle information about you digitally. For example, when we write investigations, handle matters concerning individuals, in e-mail, when we create and store documents with personal data.
