Denmark: Datatilsynet finds Falck Danmark's COVIID-19 testing of students compliant with GDPR

The Danish data protection authority ('Datatilsynet') announced on 21 September 2021, that following an investigation, it had found Falck Danmark A/S' processing of personal data in relation to COVID-19 testing of primary school students had been compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) ('GDPR'). In particular, the Datatilsynet found that Falck's provision of information to students and/or their parents of how it processes their personal data through the availability and accessibility of its privacy policy had been in compliance with Articles 12(1) and 13 of the GDPR.

Nonetheless, the Datatilsynet noted that Falck is also responsible for actively ensuring that schools disseminate information to the students' parents and that in this context, it would be appropriate to prepare booklets and posters which, in form and content, are aimed at children.
