4. Purpose of use of the file

Personal data is processed in purposes relating to the management, control and development of customer and stakeholder relationships, offering services, sales and deliveries, development of services, invoicing and the management and use control of KTI online user rights. Personal data is also processed in order to clarify possible reclamations and other demands.

In addition, personal data is processed in communications directed at customers and stakeholders, such as newsletters, market surveys and sending notifications, informing about KTI’s services, events and projects and in order to perform barometer surveys and market studies. The customer has the right to refuse targeted direct marketing.

The controller mainly processes the data themselves. Occasionally, subcontractors operating on their behalf are used in processing personal data.

5. Legal basis of the processing

The legal bases of the processing of personal data are the following principles according to the EU General Data Protection Regulation:

a) The data subject has given their consent to process their personal data for one or more special purposes of use.

b) The processing is necessary in order to execute such an agreement in which the data subject is a party, or in order to implement the actions preceding the agreement on request of the data subject.

c) The processing is necessary in order to execute the legitimate interest of the controller or the third party.

The aforementioned legislative interest of the controller is based on the relevant and appropriate relationship between the data subject and the controller, which is the consequence of the fact that the data subject is the customer or a partner of the controller, and when the processing takes place for purposes the data subject could have reasonably expected when the data was collected and in conjunction with the appropriate relationship.

6. Information content stored

In the beginning of a customer/other cooperative relationship, customer’s basic information (first name and surname, employer’s name, address, zip code and city, customer’s job title, phone number and e-mail address) are collected in the customer file.

In addition, the customer file also contains information about the data subject’s consent or refusal of direct marketing.

7. Transfer of information

Personal data is not transferred to third parties in a regular manner.

8. Sources of information

The customer/partner provides their own information in order to manage and maintain the cooperative relationship.

Providing the aforementioned personal data for the controller is the requirement of executing the cooperation and the agreement between the parties. In case the controller is not able to receive the personal data in question, the controller might not be able to perform cooperation-related and contractual obligations.

9. Principles of data protection

The data containing personal data is stored in locked rooms, in which only KTI employees and authorized subcontractor parties have access to.

The database containing personal data is located in such an environment, where only KTI employees and authorized subcontractor parties have access to. The data entry environment and the data communications between the database and the users is protected with appropriate and up-to-date data security solutions.

The access to the databases and the systems is allowed only by individually admitted personal user names and passwords. The controller has limited the user rights and authorizations in a way that the data can only be seen and processed by KTI employees and authorized subcontractor parties based upon their job descriptions. The controller’s employees and other personnel are committed to comply with the confidentiality requirements and to maintain the confidentiality of the information received during personal data processing.

10. Duration of data retention

The data collected in the file is retained only as far and to such an extent as it is necessary in relation to the original or for compatible purposes for which the data was collected.

The need for personal data retention is assessed every five years.

General customer data is retained for a maximum period of five years, and the data will be removed from the file five years after the data subject customer/other partnership to the controller has ended and the obligations and actions relating to the customer relationship are finished.

The data collected about the recipients of newsletters, market surveys and other KTI marketing material, in order to deliver the newsletters, is retained for a maximum period of five years after the data subject has informed about their desire to stop receiving the newsletter and other notifications.

The data subject’s consents and refusals to direct marketing are retained for a maximum period of five years.

The controller performs all the required, reasonable actions to ensure that the inaccurate, incorrect or expired personal data, for the purpose of processing, are removed or corrected immediately.

11. Data transfer outside EU or ETA

As a rule, KTI does not transfer data outside the EU or the European Economic Area, unless it is necessary for the technical processing of the data (for example, for carrying out maintenance, service or troubleshooting). In this case, KTI ensures an adequate level of personal data protection as required by legislation and uses data transfer mechanisms approved by the European Commission, primarily as stated within the European Commission’s standard contractual clauses.
