The information is processed based on the customer relationship between the customer and Kuomiokoski Oy, the agreement, the customer’s separate express consent or legal obligations.
  • When dealing with the online store, the basis for processing is the implementation of the agreement and the measures prior to concluding the agreement, as well as Kuoma’s legitimate advantage insofar as Kuoma uses the information collected through the online store to maintain marketing and customer relations. In addition, personal information related to purchases made in the online store is also processed to fulfill Kuoma’s statutory obligations, such as in connection with liability for errors and accounting.

Wherever possible, the processing of personal data will be carried out primarily within the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA).

In addition, some information may be retained for longer to the extent necessary to fulfil and demonstrate the proper performance of statutory obligations, such as accounting and consumer trade responsibilities.

Legislation imposes obligations on some data for longer-term storage of data, for the following purposes, for instance:

  • The Accounting Act defines longer retention periods for information, regardless of whether the material contains personal data or not
  • Fulfilling responsibilities for consumer trade
  • System log information is collected and stored as required by law to enable us to provide legal and secure online commerce to our customers.

Please note that this does not affect the lawfulness of data processing prior to the withdrawal of consent. However, withdrawal of consent may in some cases affect the availability of our services.
