We will always inform you before collecting your personal data. E.g., we may collect the following personal data on you: name, email address, phone number.

Please note that in order to use the website’s functions, you must provide some personal data. It will be evident from the relevant forms whether submission of personal data is mandatory or optional. A star (*) in the space in question shows whether submission of personal data is mandatory. If you choose not to submit the personal data in question, you may not be able to use the desired function. For example, we need your contact information to be able to answer an enquiry from you.

If you submit personal data on someone else, please get their consent first.

2.   Use of Personal Data, Objective and Processing

We collect and use personal data in connection with the functions and objectives described below. We may also process your personal data in other contexts if we are legally entitled or obliged to do so (e.g. in matters of national security).

  • Registration for continuing education programmes
  • Registration for free trial

This data is never disclosed to third parties, and we will delete the data when it is no longer relevant.

3.    Consent

When you use our website, we may collect and process your personal data insofar as you have given your consent hereto, cf. section 2 above.

Please note that you can withdraw your consent at any time. To do so, please contact us (see contact information in section 8 below).

If you choose to withdraw your consent, we will stop processing your personal data, unless we are entitled or obliged to continue to do so on different grounds, including under existing laws.

Withdrawal of your consent does not affect the legality of data processing conducted before you withdrew your consent.

If you choose to withdraw your consent, you may not be able to use the functions provided on the website in full.

4.   Security

We have implemented appropriate technical and organisational security measures to ensure a sufficient level of security. We do our best to protect the quality and integrity of your personal data.

5.  Your Rights

You have a right of access to the personal data we collect on you – with certain exceptions established by law.

In addition, you may object to SDMK’s collection and processing of your personal data, just as you have a right to correct your personal data or to ask us to limit our processing of your personal data.

If you ask us to, we will delete the personal data we have on you without unnecessary delay, unless we need to continue to process the data on different grounds, e.g. if it is necessary in order to establish a legal claim or to answer an enquiry from you.

Under certain circumstances you have a right to receive the data we have on you in a structured, standard and machine-readable format and to ask us to transmit the data to another data controller.

If you wish to exercise the rights described above, please contact us (see contact information in section 8 below).

In connection with rights-related enquiries, please provide us with sufficient information to process your enquiry, including your full name and email address, which shall enable us to identify you and answer your enquiry. We will get back to you as soon as possible and no later than a month from receiving your enquiry.
