In Sweden, there are many services available that collect publicly available personal information (such as telephone numbers, addresses, social security numbers, income, mortgages, registered cars) and sells those aggregations (or gives them away for ad-revenue).
Since the government provides this information, they probably argue that they are allowed to handle this data. Is that correct?
Can I request this information to be removed?
Does not, in fact, the GDPR require those companies to check with each person living in Sweden whether they allow this data aggregation?
These are privately owned entities, not government agencies.
