Information for students about the processing of personal data

  1. Audio and image acquisition (and audio and video recording, when relevant) occur during the examination.
  2. The student's personal data (name, social security number, voice, image) will thus be processed. Persons who handle the examination, including examiners, examining teachers, and course administrators will receive the personal data. Oral examination is normally carried out with dialogue during the examination. Conducting an oral examination via Zoom or another similar tool is a necessary and proportionate form of personal data processing, given the purpose of the examination. When conducting an examination, the legal basis for personal data processing is ‘public interest’ (see Art. 6e of the GDPR).
  3. The student's personal data will be processed in accordance with KI's privacy policy.
  4. Recorded examinations (audio and video) are preserved in accordance with KI's document management plan and are deleted two years after the examination, and if a student has requested a review of a grading decision, it is recommended that the culling of this data occur no less than two years after the completion of said review (this is pursuant to the regulations and general advice of the Swedish National Archives on restitution and culling at universities and colleges).

The document "Oral examination via distance" contains all the instructions, see also Examination- first and second cycle education.
