Cookies and personal data

SSHL uses cookies to gain access to better visitor statistics and to maintain settings for the website’s appearance. We do not save any personal information about our visitors via cookies.

Some information about how our pages are used is sent to Google through the use of their analysis tool, Google Analytics. However, none of the data that is forwarded can be linked to an individual. To track the use of our website, we also use Active Campaign and the Facebook Pixel. Just as with Google Analytics, certain information is passed on, but data cannot be linked to individual visitors in these tools either.

Only when the user chooses to share information about themself, for example via one of our application forms, data about individual visitors is saved.

SSHL also uses cookies for certain social functions. On our pages there is, among other things, the possibility to share the content on to your own social channels (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest and Twitter). For this function to work, cookies are required that are saved on the visitor’s computer.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on the visitor’s computer and that contains information. Cookies are normally used to improve the website for the user.

There are two types of cookies: One type saves a file that remains on the visitor’s computer and is used, for example, to be able to adapt a website to the visitor’s wishes, choices and interests. The second type is called a session cookie. During the time a visitor is on a web page, it is temporarily stored in the memory of the visitor’s computer. Session cookies disappear when you close your browser.

Personal data policy at SSHL

Sigtunaskolan Humanistiska Läroverket (SSHL) is run as a foundation via Sigtuna Skolstiftelse, which constitutes the Principal and board of the school and is thus also responsible for personal data for the processing of personal data that takes place within the scope of the school’s operations.

You have the right to contact SSHL if you want to access the data the school has about you, to request correction or to request restriction of processing, to make objections or request deletion of your data. Any consent can be revoked at any time. To the extent that automated decision-making occurs, the data subject must be informed of this and of the right to object.

If you have a complaint about SSHL’s processing of your personal data, you have the right to report a complaint with the supervisory authority Data Inspection.

Processing of personal data at SSHL

Processing of personal data at SSHL is done in order to carry out the mission as an independent boarding school through education, student health, student boarding, leisure activities and cooperation with students and guardians, the municipality and society.

SSHL is responsible for ensuring that only the personal data needed for the purpose is collected and processed and that there is a legal basis for this. The most common reasons why SSHL needs to process your personal data are that you are an employee, student, guardian of a student, looking for a position, participating in an event or keeping in touch with the school as an alumni.

SSHL is responsible for ensuring that all processing of your personal data is protected by appropriate technical and organizational measures and that the measures must be such that they ensure a level of security that is appropriate in relation to the risk of the processing.

The principle of publicity

SSHL is not covered by the Freedom of the Press Ordinance or the Publicity and Confidentiality Act and therefore has no obligation to disclose information in public documents. However, the school overshadows the Archives Act by following the municipality’s archive rules regarding grade documents.

SSHL may disclose your personal data to other parties who need access to it as a result of a task of public interest, as part of the exercise of authority or due to a legal obligation that SSHL has. For example, information on students is regularly disclosed to Sigtuna Municipality and Statistics Sweden, and information on employees must, among other things, be submitted to the Swedish Tax Agency.

Period for storage of personal data

Personal data at SSHL is kept as long as it is necessary for the purpose of the processing and in accordance with current legislation. Most personal data processed at SSHL needs to be saved at the school in accordance with the Archives Act (1990:782) and the Swedish National Archives’ regulations.

Personal data of minor or temporary importance is deleted when it is no longer relevant according to the current thinning directive according to the school’s document management plan.
