Handling of Personal Data

When you submit an expression of interest, apply for a program, or register for any of our fee-based courses at TGA Utbildning AB, we need to process your personal data. By giving your consent, you authorize us to use your personal data for the following purposes:

  • Fulfilling our obligations to you and obligations under agreements and applicable legislation.
  • Providing you with targeted marketing, news, or other communications and reminders based on your expression of interest and/or application.
  • Specified purposes for handling personal data in expressions of interest, applications, and during/after a course.

We will never disclose your personal data to unauthorized third parties unless we have a legal obligation or court order to do so.

Handling of Personal Data in Expressions of Interest

In an expression of interest, you consent to us processing your name and email address to receive targeted information, news, and marketing via email communications. The information sent out is based on the courses, educational areas, and brands you have chosen to show interest in.

When you submit an expression of interest, you also consent to us using the information you provided in the form along with the information you provide via YH admissions if you initiate or submit an application. We match the information from your expression of interest with your application (email, status, and chosen course) in order to profile and customize our communications to make them more relevant to you based on where you are in the application process.

Your email address may be shared with Meta and Google platforms to create customized target groups, i.e., to market to individuals with similar interests.

Tracking Pixels
Our email communications contain tracking pixels, which are a common way to determine the effectiveness of our email campaigns. These tracking pixels allow us to track if and when you open an email, which links you click on, and if you subsequently visit our website. This information is used to evaluate the success of our email campaigns and to provide you with more relevant content in the future.

Storage Periods
Personal data that you provide when expressing interest will be stored by us until the purposes have been fulfilled or until you withdraw your consent. If you wish to revoke your consent for expressing interest, click on the unsubscribe link provided in all email communications.

When expressing interest through Google, Facebook, or Instagram, the information is collected from the respective brand's account and then processed in our interest registration system. Data collected on Meta platforms is stored by Meta for 90 days. Data collected on Google platforms is stored by Google for 30 days.

Handling of Personal Data during Application

To apply for education, you need to register an account on YH-antagning. Personal data provided through YH-antagning is processed by ViaEcole AB, the provider of the system, and shared with the relevant educational institution. You can request the deletion of your account by contacting ViaEcole AB, but without an account, you cannot manage and complete your application. Read about how ViaEcole AB handles personal data.

The information we process about you in connection with an application includes your first and last name, personal identification number, gender, physical address, email, telephone number, application documents (grade documents, certificates, and/or other information required according to the application), results in any selection process, and information about whether you have been accepted or not.

We process your personal data to manage your application, make an admission decision, and communicate with you about the education program you have applied to or started an application for. If you are accepted into the education program, we will also use your information to send study-related information to you.

If you have protected identity and want to make an application, you need to contact Anna-Karin Forssén, Head of the Admissions Unit at AcadeMedia, with the email address you want to use in your application.

Legal Basis for Processing
The processing of your data is done based on the legal basis of exercising official authority and is necessary for us to make an admission decision in accordance with the Act (2009:128) on Vocational Higher Education, the Ordinance (2009:130) on Vocational Higher Education, and in accordance with regulations issued by the Swedish Agency for Higher Vocational Education (MYH).

Storage Periods
Personal data provided in connection with an application is stored for three years after the application period is over for the education program, regardless of whether you are accepted or not. We do this because we need to preserve documentation regarding the admission process and be able to demonstrate how cases are handled, for example, in connection with MYH's supervision or if you want to appeal the admission decision.
