We process personal data in order to carry out our tasks. The State Archives commits itself to processing personal data concerning you safely and responsibly. You can find out here how we process personal data and on which legal grounds.
Furthermore, personal data are also contained in the archives transferred to our services on the basis of a legal mandate. A derogation is foreseen in the GDPR for ‘archiving purposes in the public interest’.
In order to provide guidance to archivists and users in this field and in the application of the GDPR in archives, we compiled a bibliography about all aspects of this new legislation that are relevant for the archives sector. The bibliography 'Personal data and archives' can be consulted and downloaded.
