We use your personal data as a representative of your organization to ensure that the obligations and rights related to our organisations' partnership relationship are fulfilled in accordance with legislation and agreements.
Your personal data is used, for example, for the performance of contractual obligations, the development, manufacture and delivery of products and services, business development, quality management, sales and marketing purposes, customer relationship management (CRM), invoicing and other financial activities.
In terms of recruitment, personal data is processed for the receiving and processing of job applications and for the recruitment process to carry out the procedures.
In addition, personal data may be processed, if necessary, in connection with complaints and disputes and legal proceedings. Personal data may also be processed in accordance with the terms of applicable legislation to ensure security, report, investigate and prevent suspected offences, other offences and abuses, and suspicions related to them. The company has a whistleblowing reporting channel for reporting irregularities. Personal data collected through the reporting channel is registered by the company to which the notification applies at any time.
Personal data is not used for automated decision-making or profiling.
The processing of personal data is mainly based on the following legal bases:
• Implementation of relationship agreements and the implementation of prior measures.
• Compliance with legal obligations.
• Our legitimate interest to carry out communications and marketing (including direct marketing and marketing planning) as well as in the management, reporting and planning of customer relationships and the development and safeguarding of the organisation's operations. The processing of personal data related to the manufacture, supply, sale and other contractual relationships of the products and services, as well as marketing related to the recipient's responsibility in the partner organisation, is also based, where applicable, on the legitimate interest of the controller or a third party.
• In terms of recruitment, the primary basis for processing personal data is also the legitimate interest of the controller. When the recruitment process is leading to an employment relationship, the controller may also process the personal data of the job seeker for the purpose of concluding and implementing the employment contract.
• The processing of personal data in the whistleblowing reporting channel is based on compliance with a legal obligation and, where applicable, on a legitimate interest in subsidies and investigates and prevents abuses.
• Consent for processing purposes to which the data subject has given his or her consent.
When we process personal data based on a legitimate interest, we weigh the benefits and potential harms of the processing to the data subjects and have estimated that the rights and interests of the data subjects do not overrule the legitimate interest. The data subject has the right to object to the processing of personal data based on a legitimate interest by providing a reason related to his or her particular situation. In this case, we will assess whether, despite objections to processing, there is a substantially important and legitimate reason that supersedes the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or whether the processing is permitted on other grounds under the GDPR. However, the data subject always has the right to object to the processing of personal data for direct marketing purposes. Upon request, we will provide further information regarding this processing and the right of objection.
The controller mainly processes the following types of personal data:
(a) Name, position/job title* and company/organisation/unit information, address*, telephone number*, e-mail address and other contact details
b) Business offers, invitations to tender, orders, billing history, products and services you use, and other information related to our partnership.
(c) Information you provide for communication and marketing through our mutual contacts, studies, surveys, etc. methods.
(d) Technical datasets such as information on the dates, duration and potential costs of contacts and contact channels.
(d) Job applications, CVs and other documents and information provided by the job seeker in connection with job applications and recruitment, as well as information on potential references and other materials generated during the recruitment process, such as any suitability assessments.
(g) reports of suspected infringements and misconduct through the Whistleblowing reporting channel and information relating to their investigation.
• As a rule, personal data is processed for as long as required by a customer or other partnership relationship, and the data subject is a contact person, after which it is deleted no later than 2 years after the last contact.
• Marketing contact information and other marketing-related personal data will be processed as long as we target marketing to the data subject or data subject is in contact with certain services or products, and the data subject has not objected to the processing of personal data for direct marketing or, if direct marketing is based on consent, withdrawn their consent.
• Personal data processed on the basis of legal obligations is stored for as long as required by law.
• The personal data of the job seeker is stored during and after the recruitment process for as long as is necessary to fulfil the controller's rights and obligations and to answer any questions and requirements, but no longer than 1 year after the completion of the recruitment process. With the data subject's consent, personal data may be stored, for example, for future recruitment processes.
• Notifications made via whistleblowing channel will be processed for the time required for the investigation and possible follow-up.
By way of derogation from the general rules described above, personal data may be stored for longer if it is needed, for example, in connection with a complaint or similar matter or a trial.
Upon request, we will provide additional information on the retention periods and practices of personal data.
We collect your personal data through direct contacts and publicly available sources, as well as information from our own employees or other representatives of our organisation.
The personal data of jobseekers are collected mainly from the data subject himself or herself. With the data subject's consent, personal data may also be collected from other sources, such as the service provider carrying out the suitability assessment or references reported by the job seeker or other third parties.
