Personlig integritet och kreditupplysning

Privacy and Credit Report (English)
Abstract [en]

Most people would agree that privacy is a civil right, and that we should not be deprived of this civil right for other than legitimate reasons. The difficulty lies instead in how to decide where the legislative boundary should be drawn for the right to privacy, in order to protect the individual from an undue intrusion of his privacy. There are a number of areas where the right to privacy comes in conflict with opposite interests. One of these areas is credit report. In this master thesis the author discusses questions as, what is the meaning of the word privacy, and whether the protection of privacy is sufficient in the legislation concerning credit report? Also a comparative study of the Swedish and the English regulation is performed. The object of this thesis is to analyze to what extent the legislator takes the right to privacy into consideration in the legislation concerning credit report. The author also investigates the possibilities to change the legislation in effort to enhance the protection of privacy. The thesis shows, that today there is a protection of privacy in connection to the processing of personal data, but also points out the need to review this protection and also to extend it to other areas, which are not connected with processing of personal data.
