Processing of personal data

The leasing out of apartments which is undertaken by Pirkan Opiskelija-asunnot Oy (hereafter referred to as POAS) requires the processing of personal data. The basis for the processing of personal data is the client relationship, other relevant connection, or consent which is expressed by the client. Personal data is used for reasons such as managing the client relationship, conducting client satisfaction research and other surveys, client communications, apartment maintenance, and marketing. POAS pays particular attention to the protection of the privacy and personal data of the client and observes good data processing practice.

Personal data is collected mainly from the clients themselves. In addition to this, personal data is collected from the credit reference register of Suomen Asiakastieto Oy and from the population data system of the Population Register Centre.

POAS can also collect data on user terminal devices through its website using cookies and other such technology, including web analytics (for more information see: Terms of service). As a general rule, any data which is collected will not be disclosed to any party outside of POAS, with the exception of situations in which the owner of an apartment changes, or when cooperating with the parties listed in the data protection plan.
