SLU Akademikonferens attaches great importance to the secure handling of your data. We use adequate physical, technical and administrative processes and procedures to manage the data we collect and access to personal data is only given to those who need it for their work tasks.

However, data may also be processed by the host/client of the conference/event in question and data processors, i.e. companies that SLU Akademikonferens cooperates with regarding IT operations, payments, printing, distribution, accommodation, meals and transportation.

Personal data is kept for as long as necessary for the purpose of the processing. For example, data relating to special dietary requirements are deleted immediately after the end of the conference.

Your personal data is also stored for as long as required by the legislation on public documents and archives of public authorities.


You have the right, under certain circumstances, to have your data erased, rectified, restricted and to have access to the personal data processed, as well as the right to object to the processing. To exercise your rights, please contact, 018-67 20 90.

However, we cannot delete your data if there is a legal requirement to keep it, such as accounting rules, or when there are other legitimate reasons why the data must be kept, or the processing is necessary for your participation in the conference/event.


If the processing of your personal data by SLU Akademikonferens is based on consent, you have the right to withdraw this consent.


If you have comments on SLU's processing of personal data, you can contact, 018-67 20 90.
