Your rights

When your personal data is processed by Region Skåne, you have certain rights. Specific rules on how we must deal with general information can affect these rights in different ways. Region Skåne will receive your application to exercise your rights and evaluate your request based on applicable data protection legislation and other laws.

Information about your personal data and register extracts

You have the right to receive information free of charge if Region Skåne processes personal data about you and how it is processed. You also have the right to access the personal data that Region Skåne processes about you, a so-called register extract.

Register extracts do not include information that is classified in relation to yourself, information that appears only in unstructured work material, and information that cannot be securely linked to you.

Correct data

You have the right to have incorrect personal data corrected or to have incomplete personal data supplemented.

Delete data

This right is also called ‘the right to be forgotten’. In some cases, you have the right to have personal data deleted, for example if it is no longer necessary for the purpose of the processing or if you withdraw your previously given consent. In these cases, Region Skåne shall delete or anonymize the data without undue delay.

Since Region Skåne is covered by the principle of public access and the Archives Act (1990:782), the right to erasure is limited. This is because the personal data we process most often appears in general information to be retained for archival purposes of general interest.

Constrained processing

Constraint means that the data is marked so that in the future they may only be processed for certain defined purposes. For example, the right to constraint may be relevant when you think that information about you is incorrect and request that it be corrected. The processing of the personal data may then be constrained while the matter is investigated.

Transfer data (data portability)

The right to data portability is only applicable to personal data provided by yourself and processed with the support of consent or to fulfil an agreement with you. This means that your data must be disclosed and transmitted to you in a structured, electronic format so that they can be transferred to another data controller upon request.

Object to processing

You have the right to object to how Region Skåne processes your personal data if the legal basis for the processing is general interest or the exercise of public authority. This means that your personal data may no longer be processed unless Region Skåne can show that the stated legal basis can be used for the processing of your personal data.


If you are not satisfied with how your personal data is processed or feel that your personal data has been mishandled, you may lodge a complaint with the Swedish Authority for Privacy Protection.
