Who we may share your personal data with depends on the nature of the personal data. For example, personal data within healthcare is subject to confidentiality.
The data may only be disclosed after an assessment of whether disclosure will lead to harm (Swe. "menprövning”), your consent or if another legal basis exists for a disclosure. Personal data in other areas may need to be disclosed under the provisions of law or based on a decision by another authority.
Region Örebro County is an authority, which means that it is subject to the principle of public access to official documents. The principle of public access to official documents means that the public has a right to transparency with regards to the activities of the authority. This includes a right to have access to official documents. GDPR does not constitute any change in this respect.
How long your data will be stored depends on the nature of the personal data and on which legal basis it has been collected. Some data is stored forever, while other data is deleted as soon as it is no longer needed.
By law, you have a number of rights that allow you to obtain information about and control over your own personal data. This includes that you have a right to find out what personal data concerning you is handled by us, a right to have inaccurate personal data rectified and in some cases to have your data deleted.
