The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on May 25, 2018 and regulates how personal data is to be handled. All types of information that can be directly or indirectly attributed to an individual living person is regarded as personal data.

Personal data in datasets

Dataset in KulturNav contains personal data that are linked to the heritage's long-term management. Personal data about now living persons are treated solely for archival purposes of general interest, scientific or historical research purposes.

The data set manager (a named organization) is responsible for the personal inforamtion and is requested to create/update information that clarifies the purpose of processing personal data and provide relevant contact information.

Contact the dataset administrator (as seen on the dataset page in KulturNav) if you want to get in touch with their personal data officer.
