Student Records - LADOK and personal data

Ladok is the national system used for documentation of academic information at higher education institutions in Sweden.

Konstfack is by law required to keep a study record of the students and their study results (SFS 2012: 713). The data you submitted when applying to a course or programme, admissions, basic qualifications, study results and registrations are documented in Ladok.

Some of these data are also transferred to the Central Student Support Commission (CSN), Statistics Sweden (SCB) and the Swedish Migration Board.

Personal Data
Some personal data is registered by Konstfack when you become a student with us. Typical personal data is your name, a personal ID number, and address. We need this information in order to report study results, process errands connected to your studies with us, and to be able to issue degree certificates.

Your personal data in Ladok is transferred from the application system (UHR). Personal data is also transferred between Konstfack systems to give admitted studentens access to i.e. the premises, computers and network.

A large part of your data that is kept by the university is public information. If your personal data is in a public document, anyone who requests a copy of the document may view your personal data, unless secrecy according to the Public Access and Secrecy Act (2009:400) prevents this.

Konstfack processes personal data in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council. These regulations are referred below to as the General Data Protection Regulation, GDPR. Konstfack (org. no. 2021001199) is the Personal Data Controller responsible for the processing of the personal data.
