Inside the municipality, only the staff involved will process the data. The library’s system supplier will also be able to access the data (a data processing agreement has been entered into by the library and the system supplier).

Information that is sent to a municipality can become public, and may in that case be requested by anyone as long as the information is not classified.


Where Is Data Being Stored?

All data is stored in Sweden, except in the case of one subcontractor, who stores data in Ireland.


Storage Limitation

Personal data are continuously deleted from the library’s systems. Contact the data controller for more information.


What Rights Do Clients Have?

You have the right to request access to all the personal data that the municipality processes about you, and to have any inaccurate data rectified. You also have the right to cease your agreement and then have your data deleted. However, this cannot be done until all your loans have been returned and any fees paid.

If you have any objections to the municipality’s processing of your personal data, you can send a complaint to Datainspektionen, the supervisory authority.
