The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The General Data Protection Regulation exists to protect individuals' fundamental rights and freedoms, in particular their right to protection of their personal data.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies throughout the European Union and its purpose is to create a uniform and harmonised level for the protection of personal data so that the free movement of personal data within Europe is not hindered.

Much of the General Data Protection Regulation is similar to the rules that were laid down in the Personal Data Act. You can read more about the various parts of the General Data Protection Regulation below. If you would like to know more about what applies for certain groups and roles or in different situations, you can find more information under our Guides [Vägledningar], in Swedish.
