Purpose and legal basis for processing personal data

The purpose of personal data processing is to handle and process in accordance with applicable legislation the reports received through the Whistleblowing channel or otherwise.

Personal data is processed in order to comply with legal obligations, and on the basis of the data controller’s legitimate interest.

The procedure allows to report also anonymously suspicions or observations of misconduct, suspected violations related to financial markets and securities markets as well as suspicions regarding possible money laundering and terrorist financing.

Categories of personal data and content of the register

The personal data is relevant to the purpose of the register and relates to the person who has made the notification about an infringement and the subject of such notification, as well as persons, who are suspected to be involved in the alleged infringement based on the notification.

The register does not contain information about the data subject’s private life, which is not connected to his/her work duties or the notified infringement.

The register may contain sensitive data, if processing such data is necessary in order to draft, present, defend or solve a legal claim.

Basic personal data about the person who has made the notification and its subject:

  • first name and last name
  • employee’s name
  • job title
  • contact details (address, telephone number, e-mail address)

Data about the employment of the subject of the notification:

Sources of information

Data is received from person, who has reported the infringement, as well as from the employees of the controller and the Group companies.

Personal data may also be gathered during the controller’s process.

Transfer and disclosure of personal data

The data can be disclosed to be used for pre-named persons within the controller’s organisation for closer inspection and as allowed and obliged by applicable data protection legislation, to the authorities (e.g. the police), where the controller is by law obliged to inform about infringements and to co-operate with the authorities.

By rule, the data are not transferred or disclosed outside the EU or European Economic Area (EEA). If such transfer outside the EU or the EEA were necessary, the transfer and processing will be made by means allowed in the applicable data protection legislation, such as the Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the EU:s Commission.

We use external service providers in the production of system and support services. Personal data can be transferred to said service providers in accordance with applicable legislation.

No automated decision-making or profiling is associated with the personal data processing.

Information retention

Personal data is is only stored for as long as, and to the extent that, it is needed, and the data controller will utilise it for actions related to the reported purposes of processing and in no case for more than five years, unless extension of this retention period is required because the process, court proceedings or investigations by the authorities are still in progress or in order to safeguard the rights of the person who has reported the infringement or is the subject of such report.

The need for retaining the data is evaluated after two years at the latest from the time of their last evaluation.

The above mentions time limits do not apply to any anonymized statistics drafted from the data.

Reports that contain no basis for investigation will be anonymized immediately if they contain any personal data.

Protection of personal data

Personal data is protected carefully throughout its entire life cycle, by employing the appropriate data protection and information security measures.

Personal data is stored in systems that can only be accessed by pre-named persons with the right to process the data based on their work duties. All those using the register data are bound by professional secrecy.

In principle, personal data is not stored as physical documents. Such material is at all times kept in locked storage protected by an access control system.

Electronic data are available in databases that are protected by firewalls, passwords and other technical means. Databases and their backups are in locked spaces and access to the data is limited to certain pre-named persons.

An external partner (WhistleB, Whistleblowing Centre) is responsible for the technical implementation of the notification channel. WhistleB processes personal data at secure server facilities. WhistleB does not store IP addresses or other information that could be used to identify the sender of a report.
