Regardless of the country in which your personal data is processed, Region Halland takes all reasonable legal, technical and organizational measures to ensure that the level of protection is the same as within the EU / EEA.

In cases where personal data is processed outside the EU / EEA, the level of protection is guaranteed either through a decision by the EU Commission that the country in question ensures an adequate level of protection or through the use of so-called appropriate protective measures. Examples of appropriate safeguards are standard contractual clauses or binding corporate rules. If you would like a copy of the protective measures that have been taken or information on where these have been made available, you are welcome to contact us.
