Discalimer added to all outgoing e-mail2018-06-11
In connection with the entry into force of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on 25 May 2018, a bilingual disclaimer was automatically added to all outgoing email from the domain uu.se.
The disclaimer is an adaptation to the context of new rules giving individuals rights to information on how personal data is processed at Uppsala University. Emailing usually involves processing of personal data, which means that the addressee has to be notified. After an initial period of use, the disclaimer can be ‘toned down’ in appearance.
Uppsala University regrets any concern the disclaimer may have caused. The intention was, on the contrary, to reassure users and addressees that the University will process personal data in compliance with the law.
