If Google processes personal information about you in addition to verifying you, they are responsible for personal data treatment. For more information about the terms of Google services, read here.
Transfer to third country
We and the parties that we share your personal data with only process your personal data within the EU/EEA.
Exceptions apply if you use Google's authentication service at the maintenance report on www.akademiskahus.se as your personal information can be transferred to the United States. According to a decision of the 5/6 EU Commission, EU data protection officers are allowed to transfer personal data to recipients who have joined the Privacy Shield in the United States. Privacy Shield is a self-certification mechanism that exists in the United States. Companies in the United States can register with the US Department of Commerce and announce that they meet the requirements of the Privacy Shield. Google is Privacy Shield certified.

What are your rights?
You have certain rights which you can exercise to control how we use your personal data. These rights are summarised below.
Right to object
You have a right to object, at any time, to your personal data being processed on the basis of legitimate interest. You can read more about legitimate interest above. In certain cases, however, even if you object we will continue to have a right to process your personal data on the basis of legitimate interest (e.g. if we have an obligation to retain your personal data). One such case is if we can demonstrate a compelling legitimate reason for processing your data that outweighs your interests, rights and personal freedoms, or if the processing is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
Right of access
You have the right to know whether or not we process your personal data. If we do process your personal data, you also have a right to request a copy of the data we hold about you and information about how we process them.
Right of rectification
You have a right to have any inaccurate or incomplete personal data that we hold about you rectified or completed.
Right to erasure (right to be forgotten) and right to restrict processing
You have a right to request that your personal data be deleted, and to have your personal data deleted under certain circumstances. Such circumstances include, for instance, if your personal data are no longer needed for the purposes for which they were originally collected or processed, or if you revoke your consent which constitutes the legal basis for processing and no other legal basis exists for processing your data.
You also have a right to request that we restrict our processing of your personal data, and under certain circumstances we will restrict our processing of your data after receiving such a request. Such circumstances include, for instance, if you contest the accuracy of the data we process about you, or if our processing is illegal and you object to having your personal data deleted and instead request that processing of the data be restricted.
Right to complain to a supervisory authority
You always have the right to lodge a complaint with the Swedish Data Protection Authority (or another competent supervisory authority).
A complaint should preferably be lodged with the authority in the member state in the EU/EEA where you reside or work, or where a violation of the applicable data protection laws and regulations allegedly took place. The competent supervisory authority in Sweden is the Swedish Data Protection Authority. This right does not affect any other administrative determination process or judicial remedy.
Right to data portability
In certain cases, you have the right to receive your personal data from us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and, where technically possible, to have your personal data transferred to a different company (“data portability”). This applies to personal data that you have supplied to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, if the processing of your personal data is automated and our legal basis for processing is to perform a contract with you.
