We may automatically combine and combine the information we collect with information that you or your employer has provided to us.

We can also process other information you give us.

We may use various methods to automatically collect information from your computer or mobile device when you use our website. Automatic methods may include cookies, web beacons and other technologies. Automatically collected information may include your IP address, your location, the operating system of your computer or mobile device, the browser you use, the type and settings of your mobile device, and your activities related to the use of our services, such as the pages you visit on our website. Most of the automatically collected information related to the use of our website is only stored temporarily. You can manage the cookies used on the website using the cookie notification on the website. Our cookie policy is explained in more detail in section 8.


2.               What is the legal basis for our processing and what do we use your personal data for

The legal basis for processing personal data is our legitimate interest (conducting and promoting business) or your consent. Regarding the personal data included in the accounting material, the legal basis for the processing is our statutory obligation (Accounting Act 1336/1997).

We use your personal data to manage customer relations, keep in touch, process orders, deliver products and services, for analytics and statistical purposes, as well as for targeted advertising and marketing.

Providing personal information is not mandatory by law or contract. However, providing certain personal information is a prerequisite for us to be able to fulfill our contractual obligations in relation to the organization you represent.

Personal data is not used for automatic decision-making or profiling.


3.               Will your personal data be passed on to third parties?

As a general rule, your personal data will not be disclosed to other parties. However, we can hand over personal data to such external service providers that we use, i.e. personal data processors, who process personal data on our behalf in accordance with the instructions we give. Such personal data processors are, for example, the service providers of the data processing and other information technology services we use, as well as campaign and analytics services. We do not allow service providers to use or disclose your personal information for any purpose other than to provide services on our behalf. The contracts with all the personal data processors we use take into account the requirements set by the EU data protection regulation and other legislation.

If we decide for strategic or other business reasons to transfer all or part of our business to a third party, as part of such a transfer, we may pass the information we collect and store, including customer data containing your personal information, to anyone involved in the business transfer, to the extent necessary to implement the business transfer.

In addition, we may disclose your personal data if it is necessary due to an applicable law, regulation or request from an authority.


4.               Will your personal data be transferred outside the EU or the European Economic Area

As a rule, we do not transfer your personal data outside the European Union or the European Economic Area. However, some of the personal data processors we use are located outside the EEA. In this case, we ensure the level of protection of your personal data, for example by requiring the personal data processor to accept the standard clauses approved by the European Commission as part of the contract between us and the personal data processor.


5.               How long your personal data is stored

We only keep your personal data for as long as is necessary for the purposes described in this privacy statement. Basically, we keep the data for the duration of the customership, unless keeping the data longer than this is required by law. We delete your data stored in the register when your service relationship with our customer ends or your duties otherwise change so that there is no longer a basis for processing your personal data.

In order to fulfill our obligations according to the Accounting Act (1336/1997), the personal data contained in the accounting material is stored for ten (10) years from the end of the accounting period to which the accounting material applies.
