NanoLund - Integrity policy

NanoLund is a part of Lund University and therefore follows Lund University’s policy for processing of personal data. As a public authority we have an obligation to collaborate with society, communicate our activities and enable the utilization of research results.

In order for us to fulfill this obligation of sharing knowledge, informing about our activities and interacting with research partners and other stakeholders, we sometimes need to collect and process personal data. For personal data collected on web pages at the address: www.nano.lu.se and for public arrangements undertaken within the research center NanoLund, the following principles are applied.

The activities of NanoLund mainly process personal data in the following contexts:

Digital Tracks

When you visit our web pages, we collect personal data such as your IP- address, information about your browser etc. This is known as cookies. We use this data to provide services on our websites and our web servers.

More information on how Lund University uses cookies

Legal basis:  Exercise of official authority or task in the public interest


Web forms

When you fill out forms on our websites, you know which personal data you provide - and the purpose is apparent from the context. Often, the aim is to participate in a public event, be included in a mailing list or subscribe to a newsletter, but can also entail contributing to a survey. Only specific staff at Lund University have access to the personal data you provide, unless we clearly state otherwise.

Legal basis:  Consent


Photography and filming at public events

Sometimes, we photograph or film speakers or people who in other ways actively contribute to our public events. The purpose is then to provide information about the event or to spread the content of the event to a broader audience. This is one of the tasks included in our official mission as defined by the national government. We may also use photography and filming as input to improving our ways of working.

In order to avoid spreading personal data unnecessarily, we publish only pictures of individuals who are active contributors to our events. If we plan to publish identifiable photos of audiences, we will inform them prior to the event and explain how to avoid ending up in pictures or films. This is done, either in advance or at the beginning of the event. NOTE! We are not responsible for how other participants film and take photographs at our events.

Legal basis:  Exercise of official authority or task in the public interest 

If we want to use photos and films from the events in other contexts than the ones listed above, we will ask for a documented consent.
