The Service Jeunesse and other departments of the City of Luxembourg only process your personal data to perform their duties. As part of this process, the em>Service Jeunesse may disclose this data to other stakeholders involved with social assistance.
The City of Luxembourg's em>Service Jeunesse and the FNS, with whom we work closely, are obliged to abide by data protection regulations. Since Regulation 2016/679 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data (GDPR) came into force on 25 May 2018, it has set organisational and technical rules for protecting your data.
As such, data on households receiving the benefits is disclosed by the FNS to the City of Luxembourg's em>Service Jeunesse (your usual municipality of residence) so that it can send you information regarding your rights to obtain financial assistance.
Your data will be processed for the following purposes:
- to determine your rights and to confirm your eligibility to receive the allowances;
- to maintain a database for sending information to any beneficiaries of solidarity benefits or financial assistance;
- for payment of the solidarity benefits/energy allowance;
- to produce statistics and activity reports.
Your personal data will be processed for the specified purposes and will then be deleted (maximum storage period of 10 years), unless it is transferred to the City of Luxembourg's Service des Archives (Archives Department) for subsequent processing for archiving in the public interest or historical research, or to the Luxembourg National Archives in accordance with the Law of 17 August 2018 on archiving (loi du 17 août 2018 relative à l'archivage). The data will not be transferred outside the European Economic Area or to other administrative bodies aside from those that are involved in implementing the end uses.
The rights related to GDPR apply: namely, the data subjects' rights to access, rectify and erase personal data, to restrict or object to its processing, and the right to data portability.
