This Data Protection Policy describes how the Copenhagen School of Design and Technology (KEA) demonstrates its accountability in data processing to protect the personal data of students, employees and other stakeholders of KEA.

KEA regularly processes information on behalf of KEA’s students and staff, and much of this information is classified as personal data.

This Data Protection Policy sets out KEA’s standards for how personal data are collected, processed and stored. Personal data are processed in accordance with these standards to safeguard the data security and data integrity of the data subject.

KEA is required to collect some personal data about students in order to manage their course of study, for example name, address, email address, civil registration (CPR) number, qualifying exam, grades, absence due to illness, leave applications etc. 
As an educational institution, KEA is entitled to collect and process such personal data.

In addition, KEA is obliged to process personal data about employees for HR purposes.

Personal data are primarily only processed in line with KEA’s processing mandate as an educational institution. In the absence of such mandate, KEA obtains the data subject’s consent for data processing which can be withdrawn at any time.

Generally, KEA only collects and processes personal data that we need, and we only use the data for the purpose for which they were collected. Moreover, personal data are only stored for as long as there is a factual need for them or we have a legal obligation to store the data. 

If you have any questions regarding KEA’s Data Protection Policy, your rights as a data subject or the way in which personal data are processed, you may contact KEA by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
