Area of applicability
These data protection guidelines apply to all companies of the Skaala Group Oy, from now on called “Skaala” for short.
These guidelines come into effect on 25.05.2018 and apply as the minimum standard for processing personal data.
Purpose of data processing
Skaala processes personal data of partners, customers and suppliers only for the purpose of conducting its business activities and for the fulfilment of associated statutory and contractual requirements and/or in its own legitimate interest.
Principles of processing personal data
The processing of personal data at Skaala is based on strict principles that view the protection and security of data and the rights of those affected (data subjects) as of the highest importance.
LEGALITY & TRANSPARENCY
Data processing is performed in a legal manner and in good faith. When the data are recorded, the data subject is informed of the planned processing (purpose) and how the data will be handled.
LIMITATION OF PURPOSE
Data are recorded and processed for specified, clear and legitimate purposes. The data are not processed in any way that is incompatible with these purposes.
Only the data that are essential to the stated purposes are recorded and processed.
STORAGE LIMITATIONS AND DELETION
Personal data are deleted as soon as the purpose for which they were originally recorded lapses, provided that statutory retention periods do not prevent deletion.
Data secrecy applies to personal data. Data are to be treated as confidential and are protected by appropriate organisational and technical measures from unauthorised access, illegal interference and passing on as well as from loss and destruction.
Personal data are to be correct and complete and kept up to date. Appropriate measures are taken as required to correct incorrect or incomplete data (e.g. upon request by data subjects).
Duty to maintain data secrecy
All employees of the Skaala group of companies and the employees of their contractual partners are contractually obliged to maintain confidentiality and they are regularly instructed and if necessary trained in the secure handling of personal and other critical data.
The protection of the confidentiality, availability and integrity of data is a major task for Internorm. This applies to the same extent to company and business secrets, customer data, personal data and other critical information.
To this end, technical and organisational security measures in line with the state of the art, internationally acknowledged best practice and security standards are established and constantly improved.
