Göteborg Film Festival constantly strives to make the festival better and to give you as a member and ticket buyer a better experience and offers that feels relevant to you. Göteborg Film Festival would not be possible without our industry connections, members and ticket buyers. Therefore, it is important to us that you feel safe with how we handle your personal information.

On May 25, 2018, a new EU data protection regulation (GDPR), replaces the Swedish Personuppgiftslagen (PuL). Along with the new law, the requirements for how we as an organisation handle personal data are tightened. Hence, we here describe how Göteborg Film Festival handle, protects and use your personal information.

Göteborg Film Festival collects and stores personal data with “legitimate interest” as legal grounds. There should be an objective and purpose to why data is saved that is both in Göteborg Film Festival, our industry contacts, members and ticket buyer’s interest. Read more about why we save personal information and how we use it in the section “Purpose and objective.”

Handling of personal data

When you become a member, purchase a ticket, have yourself accredited, sign up as a volunteer or order a product, Göteborg Film Festival may save the personal information you provide. This information can be name, address, personal identity number, phone number, email address and account number.

In addition, we save your interaction with Göteborg Film Festival. This means that we store information regarding membership, accreditation, ticket purchase, volunteer registration or ordering of products.

Göteborg Film Festival will save the information as long as you remain a member, ticket buyer or have any other interaction with the organisation. We will do this for three years. If there has not been any interaction with Göteborg Film Festival for three years, the personal data will be deleted.

Göteborg Film Festival never collects sensitive personal data such as religious believes, political views, membership in other organisations, sexuality, ethnicity or health.

Göteborg Film Festival stores the information in systems that are protected by active security measures ( e.g. passwords and firewalls). This is controlled regularly by the organisation.

We will not pass on your information, except to those of our subcontractors who are personal information assistants, for example when it is necessary to communicate with you via email and mail, e.g. in connection with delivery of our programme catalogues.

Göteborg Film Festival never sells personal data to third parties.

Only the people who need to process personal data for the purposes mentioned above have access to your personal information. All personal data is processed in accordance with existing data protection laws.
