We may also collect and process personal data for the purposes of our own marketing communications within the limits of the law. In some cases, we may also collect and process your personal data for the purpose of fulfilling our statutory obligations, such as accounting and regulatory requirements.

We do not disclose information to third parties for marketing purposes without the written permission of the person. We may also disclose personal data to third parties where required to do so as a result of measures by Finnish authorities.
Do you transfer data outside of the EU or EEA?
In some cases, we may also transfer data outside of the EU or EEA, as some of the cloud-based services we use may be located outside of these areas. In such cases we will ensure that the country has an adequate level of data protection as intended by the EU Commission, that the transfer is carried out using the standard clauses approved by the Commission, or that the transferee is Privacy Shield certified.
How is the personal data protected?
Register information can only be accessed by ValtaGroup’s owner and the employees who require access due to their work. The data is protected using user-specific IDs and passwords as well as by a firewall, antivirus software, and SSL protocol in accordance with the general practices of the industry. Data is stored on encrypted servers. Any information processed manually is stored in an area secured with locks.
For how long do you store personal data?
The storage period of personal data may vary based on their intended use and the specific situation. In each case however, the storage periods remain reasonable and we have no need to store information that is unnecessary in terms of our activities. Legislation (such as the Accounting Act) may also oblige us to store some personal data for a specified period. Data will also be erased at the request of data subjects.
Can I review what information pertaining to me you have collected?
In general, each data subject has the right to review their information stored in the register. Such requests should be emailed to email@example.com.
