Ilisimatusarfik’s handling and processing of personal data

At all times, Ilisimatusarfik adheres to the current legislation for the processing of personal data. This means amongst other things that you must be notified of any transfer of your personal data to the extent that Ilisimatusarfik is required by law, court order any other similar ruling to hand over the information required of us, unless such notification is in violation of the law.

Ilisimatusarfik does not collect personal data that you make publicly available on our website. However, we must warn you that we are not able to prevent third parties’ unauthorised collection and processing of personal data that you yourself make available.

Personal data is never disclosed to third parties unless explicit permission is provided by you.

We store your personal information on computers with limited access located in controlled facilities, and our security measures are continuously monitored to determine whether our user information is handled properly and with due regard to your rights as a user. However, we cannot guarantee 100% for data transferred via the Internet. This means that there is a risk, however unlikely, that other unauthorised persons gain access to data that is sent and stored electronically. You thus disclose your information at your own risk.

If you find that the personal information or data about you, which is processed by Ilisimatusarfik, is incorrect or misleading, you are entitled to demand that this data be corrected, deleted or blocked.
