Privacy and security
Here we have put together important information for you to know regarding privacy, security and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) when you use Payson’s services. We protect your privacy and security. GDPR, the new law on the processing of personal data, sets higher requirements for transparency, which is why we have put this information together: so that you know how your personal data is processed.

General information about the GDPR
Here we have compiled information about the Act and what it means, as well as where you can find more information to get a better idea of how it will affect you. There are a number of concepts that it’s a good idea to understand, including what the basic principles of the GDPR mean.
GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation and is a data protection regulation from the EU that is law in all EU Member States since 25 May 2018. The GDPR will replace the current Personal Data Act (PDA). The Act is intended to protect individuals’ privacy and to modernise, harmonise and reinforce protection within the EU.
Each EU Member State has a supervisory authority that will monitor this. In Sweden this authority is the Privacy Protection Authority, formerly the Data Protection Authority. On their website there is more information and help that you can read to find out what you need to do.
