Name of the register           

The register is called the Information and Stakeholder Register of ECOPRODIGI and EXOPRODIGI projects

The purpose of the register of the ECOPRODIGI and EXOPRODIGI project / the purpose of handling personal data

The purpose for which the information in the personal data register is used is to give out information on the activities of ECOPRODIGI and EXOPRODIGI as well as to maintain stakeholder communications. We use the personal data register for sending out electronic bulletins, newsletters and invitations, as well as for providing information about events and expert services, and for marketing events. We handle personal data in matters related to the management of communications, such as reader surveys and responding to feedback.

With the help of the register we also develop ECOPRODIGI’s and EXOPRODIGI’s website, services and social media channels. With the help of the register we are able to target various stakeholder groups with relevant content.

The information content of the register and sources of information, in accordance with the rules

We collect and handle the following data:

  • The person’s work e-mail address / e-mail address
  • The name of the person’s employer organisation
  • The surname and given name of the person
  • The person’s mother tongue (or the language in which the person wishes to receive content)
  • The person’s work address, telephone number and title
  • Information on requests to send communications or marketing communications sent by the person
  • Information on prohibitions on communications and marketing
  • Information fed into contact forms
  • Information fed through blogs
  • Customer feedback information
  • The data subjects may be processed on the basis of the e-mail address in order to receive relevant communications from Ecoprodigi

In the use and development of the services we may handle the following personal data:

  • IP address information or other identifiers
  • Information collected from cookies
  • Data collected from the use of the web service, offered by Google Analytics

We also receive personal data from the following sources:

  • Information connected with the use of social media, such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube
  • Social media services themselves define the kind of information they offer their users and in what time period

On the basis of the consent of the person involved, we collect and handle other information on a case-by-case basis. We collect personal information primarily from the persons themselves in connection with contacts that are made and order forms. We may collect information about customers from public sources and registers, based on gaining permission from the customer or as set by law (for example, the Personal Data Act, Section 19, paragraph 3).

We collect visitor information from the web pages for the development of the web-site and for targeting content that is relevant to visitors with the help of the Google Analytics system and cookies. It is possible to cancel Google Analytics monitoring by following the instructions of the service provider.

Data systems using the register

  • Google Analytics and Google AdWords Google and the GDPR
  • The MailChimp e-mail service MailChimp and the GDPR
  • (wordpress)
  • ECOPRODIGI’s and EXOPRODIGI’s social media channels

Normal handing over of data                       

Data is not normally given to outside parties.

Passing on information outside the EU or European Economic Area                            

ECOPRODIGI and EXOPRODIGI use the MailChimp e-mail service in newsletters, marketing events and communications. User information moved to MailChimp includes the user’s given name, surname and e-mail address. MailChimp is a US-based company, which means that personal data is moved outside the EU. However, the personal data is encrypted in the manner required by the Personal Data Act and MailChimp is on the list of companies certified by the EU–US Privacy Shield framework, an agreement between the USA and the EU.

Storage time for personal data                   

We do not store personal data longer than is necessary for the purpose for which it is used, or alternatively, we store it for a period that we have defined with our service providers / cooperative partners in our data security and data protection agreements. The storage times of personal data vary according to the purpose of its use and the situation. We update personal information when necessary and we remove unnecessary information.

The principles of the protection of the register             

We keep personal data in electronic form on the servers of our service providers. These are protected through agreements that follow general practices made between us (ECOPRODIGI / Centrum Balticum Foundation) and our service providers. We do not disclose used or handled personal data to anyone other than those who need it for their work or our cooperative partners, to whom it is disclosed in confidence and to a limited degree (determined on the basis of agreements). We restrict access to personal data through user codes, passwords and access rights.
