Processing of Personal Data in Destia

Principally, we collect the data from the individual itself, but if needed, we can also collect data from publicly available sources, e.g. from the Internet. The personal data we process is, for example, your contact information, the information you have filled in for the possible feedback, inquiries and reclamations, as well as the information you have given to any enquiries/surveys and campaigns. The personal data we process also includes the information you have published yourself in our social media. In addition to this, when you visit Destia.fi -internet site, with your consent, we collect pseudonymized analytic information regarding your visit. This information is used, for example, for target marketing purposes and other similar marketing purposes.

The processing of personal data is based on either your explicit consent or our legitimate interest. While participating in any of our activities or being a member of our stakeholders, for example, when you are working for our customer, there is a meaningful and appropriate relationship between us. Based on this relationship, we have a legitimate interest to process your personal data for our usual communication and marketing purposes. If you are considered as a new contact to us, we have approached you based on the fact that your information has been publicly or otherwise easily available and based on your position we can assume that this type of communication is usual to you.

We use your personal data to reply to your feedback or inquiries, for any communication or direct marketing purposes as well as to collect statistics and in order to develop and improve our communication in all our channels. If your personal data is processed for a specific purpose, such as a campaign or draw, we will notify you of any special circumstances that may be associated with such processing while we are collecting your information.

Data retention and Transfer of Personal Data

We will process your personal data as long as there is an appropriate relationship between us and you.

When your personal data is no longer needed for any purpose, it will be deleted or anonymised securely.

We do not regularly disclose or transfer your personal data to anyone. It is possible to disclose and transfer information to the authorities on a case-by-case basis, for example, in connection with a criminal investigation or legal proceedings.
