To rectify the personal data this needs to be done at the relative source service as no such data is stored in this system. For students this will be UHR/ and Ladok and for employees this will be Primula & HBKat. Contact the IT-helpdesk on if you have additional questions regarding this.

Data retention

The data will be stored during the study period of the student.

Once no more activity is recorded, the entry will be archived for 6 months and then removed. A small record is retained indefinately containing just the norEduPersonalNIN and the name and will be used if the identity is re-established.

Your personal data will be protected according to the Code of Conduct for Service Providers, a common standard for the research and higher education sector to protect your privacy.
