External engagement and communication

External engagement with wider society and providing information on our activities is a part of the University’s mission. This means that the legal basis for processing is that the personal data is of public interest.

You are permitted to process personal data in external engagement and to inform without asking for consent, but only if this involves necessary personal data. 

Necessary personal data:

  • The person is involved in the activity in question and is not easy to replace
  • The data is relevant in the context.

Individuals whose personal data we process are to be informed about it, regardless of which legal basis is used.
