Fulfilling contractual and legal obligations. Your data may also be collected and processed in order to meet contractual or legal obligations.

On what basis do we process your data?

We make sure that we always have a lawful basis for processing your personal data. We may process your data on several different bases, but we ensure that we always have at least one requirement for processing your personal data as defined by law.

We primarily process customer and marketing register data to fulfil and prepare contracts and on the basis of our legitimate interests, which are, in particular, the production and provision of our services, customer management, direct marketing, customer feedback processing, and training services.

If applicable legislation so requires, we may process some of your personal data on the basis of your consent. If we process your data based only on consent, you can withdraw your consent at any time.

We may also process your personal data in order to fulfil legal obligations. Personal ID numbers are processed to a limited extent in certain systems to e.g. identify a user. Personal ID numbers are stored on systems in an encrypted format.

What personal data do we collect? 

Mtech’s customer register primarily contains the following personal data:

  • First and last names
  • Personal ID number (limited use)
  • Address information
  • Telephone number(s), fax
  • E-mail address
  • Country and preferred language
  • Identification data (user name/password)
  • Objections and consent to direct marketing
  • Objections and consent to data disclosure
  • Services ordered by the customer and their history data
  • Service use, log and history data

Mtech only collects and stores data that is necessary for Mtech’s operations and data use purposes, for which there is a lawful basis for processing and whose basis for processing is described in this privacy policy. 

Data which has become unnecessary or obsolete, or for which there is no longer a basis for processing, will be anonymized or destroyed in a data-secure manner.

Which sources do we collect data from?

Data relating to the customer is collected from the customer themselves when a contract is made, from the online service’s “my data” section, from the use of products and services, when the customer contacts customer service, and if the customer participates in product and service development projects and pilot projects.

Data relating to the customer can also be obtained and updated from other external sources of data in cases made possible by legislation for purposes of which the customer is informed.

Who processes the data and will it be disclosed to third parties?

Primarily, your personal data will be processed by controllers’ personnel when they perform their tasks in accordance with this privacy policy. Name and address information can be disclosed from the data file to the controllers specified in this privacy policy for direct marketing purposes to the extent permitted by law. 

Your data may in some cases be confidentially disclosed to our subcontractors, who process personal data on the basis of a written commission agreement. Our subcontractors process personal data in an agreed way in accordance with our written instructions and only for the purposes that are specified in this privacy policy. For example, we may use such subcontractors to carry out market and to maintain information systems used for saving personal data. Our subcontractors do not disclose data to other parties or use the data for their own marketing.

Data (only name and address data) may be disclosed in the manner permitted by the GDPR and Personal Data Act to joint controllers’ partners who are commissioned by the joint controllers and act on their behalf.    

Data is disclosed to authorities in cases where the law so requires, such as when investigating and preventing misuse.

Will personal data be transferred outside of the EU?

Your data will not be transferred outside of the European Union or the European Economic Area. 

If there is a need to transfer your data outside of the EU in order to fulfil the purposes defined in this privacy policy, we will ensure that the country has a sufficient level of data protection as specified by the EU commission, that the recipient holds Privacy Shield certification (US recipients), or that the transfer takes place utilizing the model clauses published by the EU commission. We will, therefore, always ensure that any data transfer is carried out on a lawful basis and with sufficient protection mechanisms.

How long will my personal data be stored for?

We do not store your personal data for any longer than is necessary for their purpose or longer than an agreement or law dictates. The period of time for which we store personal data may vary according to their purpose and the situation, however. The storage times for personal data may be based on legal requirements. We will update your data if necessary. 

How is personal data safeguarded and protected?

The data security of Mtech’s customer data file and the confidentiality, integrity and availability of personal data is ensured using appropriate technical and administrative procedures in accordance with general industry standards. Data is primarily stored in an electronic format. Data and services are protected using, among other things, a firewall, physical protection in the equipment space, access control, user access rights and restrictions, as well as encryption technology and the active monitoring of the aforementioned. Personal data is protected from unauthorized access and illegal or accidental processing.

Personal data is processed by named persons employed by the controller. These persons identify themselves to the systems using a personal user ID and password.

Is it mandatory to provide personal data, and what are the consequences if it is not provided?

The implementation of the purposes of our services described in this privacy policy may, at least partially, require that we process your personal data. This can relate to e.g. managing the customer relationship, fulfilling the contract and invoicing. However, some personal data can be provided voluntarily. If you do not wish to provide your personal data in such situations, it may mean that we are unable to fulfil all of the purposes specified in this privacy policy.

Objections and consent to direct marketing

The customer can update their consent or objection to direct marketing when logged in to the online service or by contacting customer service. Consent to marketing can be given either electronically or by telephone to customer services.
