Personal data that you provide in conjunction with notifications for seminars or other events will only be saved as long as is required for the management of the event and in case it is necessary to follow up events.

We always perform a review if a request is made to release a document in order to see whether there is a question of confidentiality or whether it can be released in accordance with the Swedish Public Access to Information and Secrecy Act (2009:400).
