6 Regular sources of information

Information about customers is obtained from customers, e.g. in connection with requests for offers, orders, contracts and other contacts, as well as the information that is or will be saved from the use of the customer’s products or services. Information is also collected with the help of cookies and similar technologies in accordance with the procedures allowed by the regulations in force at any given time. The information of potential customers can be obtained in connection with possible raffles.

All customer contacts can be recorded and saved. The recordings are used e.g. in the authentication of business transactions and in the development of customer service.

Personal data can also be collected and updated from the registers of the Population Register Center, Suomen Asiakastieto Oy and other similar service providers.

The information is also updated based on the rules for exchanging information on the electricity market published by Energiateollisyys ry.

In the case of the employees of our subcontractors, personal data is collected directly from the registrants or their employers.

7 Data processors and other recipients

In principle, personal data is not disclosed to outside parties. Information may be disclosed to the authorities as required by the legislation in force.

In accordance with the electricity market legislation and the supplemental application instructions of the industry, information is disclosed to other parties in the electricity trade (electricity seller, distribution network operator) and to the data controller responsible for the electricity market data exchange solution (Fingrid Datahub Oy) via electronic message traffic.

Information can also be transferred for processing to Keravan Energia Oy’s partners, subsidiaries, service providers or subcontractors for the purposes specified in section five.

Our partners and subcontractors can process personal data only for tasks related to customer relationship management or maintenance performed on our behalf. We always ensure that our partners do not process transferred personal data for any other purposes.

8 Data transfer outside the EU or EEA

9 Principles of personal data retention

Personal data processed on the basis of consent will be deleted immediately after withdrawal of consent, if there is no other legal basis for the processing.
