Notice about General Data Protection Regulation

On 25 May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will become enforceable. In practice, the regulation concerns every company located in the European Union area or conducting business within the European Union. The regulation details the obligations of controllers and handlers of records  containing personal data on the one hand, and details certain rights of the persons, whose data is contained in these records, on the other hand.
That personal data have to be handled responsibly and reliably, has certainly been clear to us already before the Generla Data Protection Regulation will come into effect. The protection of our customers’ personal data is an undisputed precondition of our operations.



Grounds for processing personal data

Sovellusmestarit Oy process personal data of customers on legal grounds. We save personal data, so that we can fulfill our obligation to procure and deliver goods and services.  By saving personal data, we can send invoices to the correct receiver. The same applies to offers, quotations, delivery lists, and contracts, which we can only send to the correct receiver, if we save  the according personal data. With the help of records containing personal data, we can also communicate with our partners, customers, end customers, business contacts and potential customers and send important information about new developments and changes.



Collected data

In our records containing personal data, we only collect data in connection with our business relationships with partners, customers, end customers, business contacts and potential customers. The collected data includes for example:


  • ·         Your name
  • ·         The name of the company your are working for
  • ·         The address of the company you are working for
  • ·         The invoicing address of the company you are working for
  • ·         Your email address
  • ·         Your landline phone number
  • ·         Your mobile phone number
  • ·         For customers with whom we have signed contracts, we also collect the beginning and end dates of these contracts.




Marketing, sales, and development

We also process personal data for marketing, sales, and development purposes. This helps us to make our products and services even more customer-friendly. Saving personal data for sales and development purposes is ultimately also necessary, in order to respond to inquiries, product development suggestions etc.



How we protect your personal data

We are using appropriate technical, and company internal safety measures to ensure that all the personal data we control are protected against loss, abuse, and unauthorized use.



Your rights

According to the General Data Protection Regulation, you have the right to object the processing of your data on legal grounds. The immediate removal of your contact information may however lead to situations where we are not able to deliver services or products as agreed.


You have the rights to:

  • ask for access to your personal data
  • inquire which personal data we have saved about you
  • ask that we correct wrong or missing personal data
  • ask that we remove your personal data
  • limit the processing of your personal data
