The information in the marketing and customer registry is mainly used for the purposes of providing and producing services, customer communications, business planning and development, maintenance, care and development of customer relations, as well as improving the CADS user experience.

If at issue is the providing of training or services for you on the basis of an agreement signed with your employer or educational institution, we will process your personal data to further our legitimate interests, which in this case is the need to avoid neglecting the agreement and to fulfil the obligations of said agreement (in practice, the providing of training or other service acquired for your benefit).

When at issue is the marketing of our products or issuing notifications concerning our company, the processing of personal data is based on the need to promote our business for the realisation of our legitimate interest. In order to respect your basic rights, your privacy in particular, we will try to limit our communications to such messages as are relevant in terms of your profession, work tasks or stated interests, and we will limit the amount of communications as is possible.

In other cases, your personal data will only be processed by your consent.

6. Registry data sources
We will mainly collect your personal data from yourself. We may also receive some data from your employer who signs you up for training or a seminar provided by us.

Your data may be collected and updated or purchased as once-only packages from registries maintained by Asiakastieto or Fonecta or other similar public and private registries and sources, to the extent allowed by applicable laws.

If you wish to purchase or use our services, the signing of the agreement will require the submission of necessary personal data. If you choose not to submit such data, you will not be able to use our services.

We also keep track of cookies, which provide us with measurable data on our visitors that we use for example in planning our marketing. This way we are able to target our communications as accurately as possible. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your device to collect useful data.

Kymdata Oy may further transfer the data for the purposes of payment services, data processing (in this case invoice processing including invoice mailing and payment control) or similar comparable tasks on behalf of the data controller. Your data will not be transferred to other data controllers. We will however employ subcontractors for the processing of your personal data, who will realise procedures as data processors based on our instructions and orders and for the purposes stated in the registry.

8. Data transfers to countries outside the EU or EEA
We may transfer your data to countries outside of the EU or the European Economic Area when our partner taking care of the commission is located outside of these areas. In such cases, we will ensure that proper protective measures are implemented in order to guarantee the rights and freedoms of data subjects, in accordance with the applicable data protection legislation, such as the European General Data Protection Regulation (679/2016).

For example, a service provider doing marketing for us may transfer personal data to the United States during the providing of the service. In this case, the proper data protection has been implemented by committing to the Privacy Shield framework in effect between the USA and the EU.
