Den personliga integriteten eller den publika insynen - hur informationssamhället påverkat det effektiva skyddet mot personuppgifter
Sammanfattning: As the Internet is becoming increasingly intertwined with our lives, new approaches need to be made towards personal integrity and the principle of public access to official records. The information accessible in the information society is close to limitless which creates risks for the personal integrity and misuse of personal data. The directive on the protection of personal data was incorporated in Swedish law through Personuppgiftslagen (PUL) 1998, based on the right to respect for private and family life in article 8 in the European Convention on Human Rights. The right is, however, undermined in conflict with other interests. An example of this is when the right to publish personal data is enabled with the authority of the protection of speech, despite it being incompatible with the directive for protection of personal data. This paper highlights the question as to whether Swedish laws meet the demands on protection of personal integrity stated in the directive on protection of personal data and article 8 in the European Convention on Human Rights. The essay also aims to, in view of development of the law, examine the concept of personal integrity. Sweden might, to some extent, have an unsatisfying protection for the right in article 8 in the European Convention on Human Rights. Due to the strong protection of the principle of public access to official records, it might, however, be an admissible limitation. Regarding personal integrity, personal data is to be valued higher due to its increasing importance in the information society.
