The user is also entitled to prohibit the processing of their data for marketing purposes afterwards. This request must be presented by e-mail to the contact person mentioned in this description.

The purpose of personal data processing

We use the data collected about the data subjects for:

  1. the delivery and ordering of services
  2. personalising our services and communications, making recommendations and targeting our marketing activities
  3. customer services and customer communications relating to services, for example, sending messages, reminders, technical notes, updates and information requested from us
  4. the production, maintenance, protection and development of services
  5. direct marketing in accordance with the consent and prohibitions of the Data subject
  6. ensuring the appropriateness and functionality of communications
  7. business design and product development
  8. other tasks required for the fulfilment of the rights and duties of the controller
  9. resolving any disputes between us and any customer and executing agreements we have made with third parties.

If the Data subject gives us their electronic contact data, such as their e-mail address, in connection with customer communications, we consider them to have given their unambiguous consent to send them the above-mentioned communications also via electronic channels.

The purposes of the processing of personal data for individual, pre-identified and short-term campaigns may also be communicated in campaign-specific register descriptions. The data collected for the campaigns shall be destroyed immediately after their purpose of use relating to the campaign ends.

Regular sources of information

Regular sources of information include data given by the Data subject in orders and forms and data created in connection with customer service, offers, contact requests, complaints and the use of products and services. With the consent of the Data subject and based on the law, we may also acquire or receive data relating to the Data subject from third parties such as authorities, for example, to improve the quality of communications and ensure the up-to-dateness of the data.

Regular data disclosures

No regular data disclosures are made from the Vilkas user register.

Vilkas may hand over personal data within the limits allowed and obligated by the existing legislation to third parties, for example, authorities.

In e-mail communications, Vilkas uses the MailChimp system, in which personal data is saved in servers outside the European Union and the service provider is in the PrivacyShield system of the US, which means that data protection is at the EU level.

Use of cookies

Cookies may be used on the Vilkas website and equivalent electronic platforms. The data collected with cookies are used to improve the functionality and content of the site. The user may choose to disable cookies in the browser settings. However, we cannot guarantee that our platforms work flawlessly after disabling cookies because cookies may be necessary for the operation of certain services.

Register protection principles

The register and the personal data included in it are processed confidentially. The register is properly protected from outsiders with firewalls and other technical protection methods. The register is only kept in electronic format, and any occasional paper printouts from the register are immediately and appropriately destroyed in accordance with the internal instructions of Vilkas.

Personal data may be kept on Vilkas’s own physical platform and in a cloud service provided electronically by an external service provider. When the services of an external service provider are used, the service provider in question is, as the controller, responsible for the measures concerning the rights of the Data subject. Regardless of whether we store and process data in our own environment or an outsourced environment, we are responsible as the controller for ensuring that data security is appropriately organised and personal data is properly protected from outsiders by protective measures.  

We do our best and continuously implement and update our operations in order to protect personal data from unauthorised use, destruction or modification. We collaborate with the authorities and our partners in order to guarantee data protection for the Data subjects in accordance with the applicable laws. However, it must always be remembered that no data is completely reliable or safe online.
