Your rights in relation to the Schengen Information System

In case you have been registered in the Schengen Information System you have specific rights.

Right of access
In certain cases, you have the right to have access to data relating to you which has been entered in the Schengen Information System.
 
However, this right does not apply if it is assessed that the access would hinder for instance the fight against crime. This assessment is made on a case-by-case basis. Also, under such circumstances you do not have the right to know that no data is being processed about you in the Schengen Information System.

Right to deletion of an unlawful registration
Registration in the Schengen Information System requires very specific grounds. If your registration is unlawful, you have the right to be deleted from the system.

Right to rectify inaccurate or misleading data
In case factually inaccurate or misleading data is being processed in the Schengen Information System you have a right to have them rectified.

You can make your request here
Requests for access to the Schengen Information System have to be made at The National Commissioner of Police (Rigspolitiet) when making the initial approach. The address is Polititorvet 14, 1780 København V.

The National Commissioner of Police shall reply the request without delay and in any case you must receive a notice within 4 weeks on when an answer can be expected to be available.

In case The National Commissioner of Police deny you access to the Schengen Information System, a complaint can be filed at The Danish Data Protection Agency (Datatilsynet). When the Data Protection Agency assesses if the refusal for access is correct, the agency also checks the legality of any registration.
