Information how we handle Personal Data

In all EU countries, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies. The regulation strengthens the protection of your personal data and your right to know what they are used for and how they are processed by us at the Interreg NPA, but also at other organizations and companies.

The Northern Periphery and Arctic programme is managed by the County Administrative Board of Västerbotten, Sweden, and the authority may need to collect, receive or otherwise process your personal information when engaging with the NPA programme.

The NPA programme may need to collect, receive, or otherwise process your personal data. A personal data is all kinds of information that can be directly or indirectly attributed to a natural person who is alive. All types of handling that can be done with personal data, such as storing, deleting, spreading and copying, is a processing of personal data.

If you have applied for funds from the Northern Periphery and Arctic programme, this means that you have an errand at the County Administrative Board of Västerbotten and we will need to process your personal information. The same applies for example if you attend a conference we organize or if you post, film or photo to our social channels, websites and more, we will process your personal data.

 

Processing of personal data shall have legal basis

All processing of personal data must be legitimate. The following European regulations mandate the Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme to collect personal data in its electronic monitoring system eMS: - Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 480/2014, Article 24(2) - Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1011/2014, Article 9(3)(f) .

The County Administrative Boards are jointly responsible All 21 County Administrative Boards in Sweden have a common IT organization. Therefore, the County Administrative Boards are jointly responsible for data protection in relation to the new data protection regulation, GDPR.

The legislation requires a structure which makes it clear to the registrant how responsibility is distributed between county administrative boards and other authorities. That is, who is responsible for processing your personal information legally, safely and correctly.

 

County Council Data Protection Officer

The Swedish County Administrative Boards have chosen to have a common organization (called NOD) for data protection and GDPR. A requirement in the regulation is that authorities appoint a Data Protection Officer and notify it to the Swedish Data Protection Agency. The County Administrative Boards have two data protection officers and their role is to monitor compliance with the regulation, provide advice and support, assist you as a registered person, and be the contact person of the Swedish Data Protection Agency. For more information (in Swedish) about how the County Administrative Boards handle personal data, please visit: https://www.lansstyrelsen.se/dataskydd.

If you have any questions or concerns about how the Northern Periphery and Arctic programme/County Administrative Board of Västerbotten is processing your personal information, please contact Programme Director at the County Administrative Board, Ms Annika Blomster, email: Annika.blomster{at}lansstyrelsen.se. She will be able to pass your questions or concerns on to the Data Protection Officer.
