Information Security/Data Protection

To ensure a safe student – and work environment, we can share information regarding infection and/or quarantine cases within the organization if we feel that the sharing of this information is necessary to maintain such an environment. However, in such case, each individual case is discussed with the health authorities. NMH will never share information about individual persons to outsiders.

Deletion of Personal Information

Any personal information processed by NMH in connection with an infection alert amongst students or staff, or amongst close contact of the aforementioned, will be permanently deleted as soon as infection tracing is completed and relevant measures implemented. This includes information pertaining to whether anyone goes home or stays home due to illness.

This is stipulated in the Working environment act (arbeidsmiljølø\oven) §4 – 1(1) and the Universities and University Colleges act (Universitets og Høgskoleloven) § 4-3.
