Information we collect from our online service

We store in our register the information you have provided through the Service’s contact form. If you want a response to feedback sent via a feedback form or email, the feedback should be sent with contact details. Messages sent through the contact form are archived in the Service.

Persons sending feedback containing personal data should note that the security of an unprotected feedback form or email message is weak, and the confidentiality and protection of the information cannot be fully guaranteed in this case. This should be taken into account especially with regard to sensitive information in terms of privacy.

Purpose of the Register

The register is used in accordance with the Personal Data Act to manage and develop the customer relationship and to produce, develop, and maintain the Service. We may also use the register to inform about our various services and for billing matters. Through the collection of personal data, we may also send you targeted marketing or customer messages. However, if you do not want to receive messages, you can inform the register administrator at any time.

Data Transfer

Kanta-Suomen Asumisoikeusyhdistys does not sell, exchange, or transfer your identifiable information to third parties. This does not include trusted third parties who help us maintain our website or conduct our business. Third parties must also keep the information confidential. We believe that sharing information is necessary when aiming to investigate, prevent, or otherwise address illegal activity, suspicions of fraud, or situations that potentially threaten the physical safety of an individual, violations of our terms of use, or in other situations required by law.

Is my data transferred outside the EU?

Your personal data is not, as a rule, transferred outside the EU. Possible transfers outside the EU relate only to situations where the servers of the systems we use would be located outside the EU. If this were to happen, we ensure that the processing, transfer, and storage of your data are carried out on the basis required by law and with adequate protection mechanisms.

How long are my personal data stored?

We do not store your personal data longer than necessary for its purpose or as required by contract or law. However, retention periods for personal data can vary depending on the purpose and situation. Generally, after a contract ends, we remove personal data from our systems. We also aim to update your data from time to time. Data on our website visitors collected by Google Analytics is stored for 14 months, after which it is automatically deleted from Google’s servers.

Register Protection

The register is protected from external use, and the use of the register is protected with personal usernames and passwords. Users are bound by confidentiality. Only employees of Kanta-Suomen Asumisoikeusyhdistys and employees of Trival Oy, the producer of the Kanta-Suomen Asumisoikeusyhdistys online service, have access to the register. Employees are bound by confidentiality.
