Duty of confidentiality

During your employment at the university, you may be given confidential information which you are not allowed to mention or disclose in any way under the provisions of the Danish Penal Code (Straffeloven) on confidentiality. This also applies after your employment at the university ends. In addition to the provisions of the Danish Penal Code on criminal liability, any issues concerning processing and disclosure of personal information are regulated by the Danish Act on Processing of Personal Data (Persondataloven).

Information is confidential when it is necessary to keep it secret to safeguard the university’s interests or not to disclose information about the personal affairs of individuals.


In the event of any inconsistency between the Danish and English language versions of the document, the Danish version prevails.
