How do we process your personal data?

As the data controller, we have the responsibility for the compliance of the parties authorised to process personal data with laws and agreed practices. The safe processing of data is ensured by detailed guidelines, personnel training, and careful selection of partners.

In addition to the General Data Protection Regulation of the EU, TVO Group companies comply also with the Finnish Privacy Policy Act (5.12.2018/1050) in the processing and storing of personal data. Some functionalities on the websites of TVO Group companies may require registration and logging in to use the service. The personal data you provide when registering may be used for electronic direct marketing under the Finnish Privacy Policy Act and the Finnish Act on the services of Electronic Communications (7.11.2014/917). The personal data you provide to TVO Group companies (such as name, function, address, email address, telephone number, fax number, company name, reference number, and information about the request) will be used for service purposes and to fulfil your requests.

You may be contacted by a representative of TVO Group companies, in case further information is needed to reply your questions or fulfil your request, or for marketing purposes (with private persons only if the user has expressly consented to this when registering to and/or using the service), stakeholder surveys, or for purposes related to the management or technical development of the website or other similar purposes.

Personal data can be used to verify information related to privacy protection, or to investigate or prevent unlawful activities, activities which interfere with the operation of the network, or attacks causing denial of service.

If you provide personal data on behalf of another person, such as your spouse, partner, child, or colleague, we assume you have been authorised by this person to disclose the data. By providing data, you also authorise TVO Group companies to exchange the data provided by you between TVO Group companies for the purposes described above.

How do we protect your data?

TVO Group companies take specific actions (e.g. through agreements) to ensure that the subsidiaries, representatives, Group companies, and service providers of the Group implement data protection according to the standards of TVO Group when processing your personal data, regardless of their location. The recipient of such data is requested to protect confidential data and to safeguard the information security of personal data, and is not authorised to use the data for any other purposes.
TVO Group companies store and process personal data in the manner required by the General Data Protection Regulation of the EU, as well as laws and other provisions, and in compliance with this Privacy Statement.

TVO Group has taken actions to prevent the unauthorised use and misuse of data as required for purposes of personal data protection. However, electronic systems always involve a risk of information security breach which cannot be completely eliminated.

TVO Group protects personal data in its possession by means of several different IT-based methods designed to prevent, detect, and/or register any unlawful processing of personal data. The servers containing personal data and the backup copies of them are located in locked and guarded premises and the data are only accessible by specifically appointed and authorised persons. Communications are SSL encrypted in the online service.

We will not sell your data

It is not the policy of TVO Group companies to rent or sell personal data to third parties. We can disclose you data for processing purposes to reliable subcontractors who process personal data on our behalf for invoicing or contractual purposes, for example, or to authorities where required or allowed by law. Personal data provided to TVO Group will not be disclosed or transferred outside the European Union or the European Economic Area, unless necessary for the technical implementation of the service.

By using a service provided by TVO Group and accepting these terms and conditions, you are consenting to the above data transfers for the purposes described above.

What other information do we collect, apart from personal data?

Your use of our services and your IP address are recorded in a log file. The purpose of the log file is to collect data on the amount and manner of use of the services, visitor numbers, system errors and which part of the services have or have not been used. The collected data are used to develop and improve our services.

The users’ personal data (for example name, address, date of birth) are not collected in the log file, unless the users themselves provide them. Nor is any data collected in the log file which would allow individual users to be identified. Various technical tools can be used on the websites, such as Google Analytics, which provide certain technical information, including the operating system used in the computer, network location, browser type, and address of the website that sent the request, as well as the name of the company. TVO can contact the company based on these data for advertising and marketing purposes.

Data retention period
The data you provide on the websites of TVO Group companies can be stored and used for purposes of service development, for example. The data are processed only for as long as necessary to accomplish the original purpose of use or regulatory obligations.

Personal data are deleted as soon as they are no longer needed to accomplish their purpose of use, unless otherwise specified in valid laws regarding retention of personal data. Where personal data and the processing of the data concern the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest, historical data related to the use of nuclear energy shall be retained in this respect (EU 2016/679, Article 89 (3)).

The subscription to the Newsletter can be cancelled at any time using the link provided with the Newsletter.
