Why and for what purposes are we processing personal data?

We use our customers’ information for customer relationship, assignments and to ensure that we are not disqualified to take a case. Data processing is based on an agreement with the customer.

We handle the information of our employees for the purpose of fulfilling the employer’s obligations. Data processing is based on an agreement.

On our website, visitors’ information is processed for the development of our site. For example, we may track the number of visitors to your site or learn what keyword a visitor has reached our site. The processing of the information is based on the consent of our guests on our site. You have the option not to give your consent and thus refuse tracking cookies.

From which sources do we collect personal information?

As a rule, all information is collected from the data subject himself. Thus, information about customer relationships or assignments is basically obtained from our client and employee information from our employees themselves.

In addition, your information may be handed over to the Finnish immigration authorities for the purpose of submitting and obtaining a residence permit application.

Nonetheless, legislation or regulatory requirements may in certain circumstances require disclosure. In these cases, each request for disclosure is assessed on a case-by-case basis.

Is my information processed in third countries?

Due to the nature of our operations and the location of universities of applied sciences and universities, we need to disclose your information in the European Union to the country where the university of applied sciences or university you are applying for is located. Data transfers generally take place in Finland.

How do we take care of protecting your information?
