The privacy statement applies to the controller’s website, deliveries of products and services, customer relationship management and marketing activities. In addition, this privacy statement applies to subcontracting and other stakeholder engagement. Where applicable, this privacy statement also applies to the processing of personal data by Tuusulan Peltikeskus Oy and other Group companies of Nesco Oy.

Data protection regulations refer to data protection legislation valid at the time, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation (2016/679) and the Finnish Data Protection Act (5 December 2018/1050). In the case that a term related to privacy is not defined in this privacy statement, the meaning given in data protection regulations shall apply. Personal data means any information relating to a natural person (data subject) who can be identified, directly or indirectly, as defined in detail in the EU GDPR.

We only process personal data to the extent necessary for each purpose. The main purposes are described below:

  • Delivery and provision of products and services, performance of customer contracts and management of orders.
  • Customer service and communication as well as customer satisfaction surveys and prize drawings.
  • Invoicing, credit decisions and debt collection.
  • Marketing (including market research), other marketing promotion and event organisation, customer references for marketing purposes, analysis, generation of statistics and measuring the effectiveness of marketing.

When we process personal data for the purposes of delivering products and services, performing customer contracts and managing orders and related obligations, the legal basis for processing is the performance of the contract or its preparation.

The legal basis for processing personal data may also be the legitimate interest of the controller or of a third party. Legitimate interests include managing customer relationships, customer communications, the processing of personal data related to marketing (including direct marketing), the processing of personal data related to, for example, reporting and business development, and the handling of complaints and legal proceedings. When we process personal data on the basis of a legitimate interest, we weigh the benefits and potential disadvantages of the processing for the data subject and ensure that the data subject’s rights and interests do not override the legitimate interest. Upon request, we will provide additional information regarding the processing of personal data on the basis of a legitimate interest.

When we process personal data in order to comply with legal requirements, the primary legal basis for processing is compliance with a legal obligation.
Processing personal data for the purposes of sending out newsletters and other direct electronic marketing is based on the consent of the data subject, in accordance with the requirements of data protection regulations.

4. Categories of personal data and their sources

*Personal data marked with an asterisk are mandatory. Without mandatory personal data, we are unable to, for example, deliver products or services or handle customer communications.

We collect personal data directly from you when, for example, you do business with us, purchase or order our products or services either on your own behalf or on behalf of an organisation you represent, visit our website or other electronic services, subscribe to our newsletter or other materials, respond to a customer satisfaction survey or contact us for some other reason.

We also collect personal data from other third-party sources, such as registries maintained by the authorities and, for direct marketing purposes, also from private registry services such as ProFinder (Leadventure Oy).

We may also receive personal data from other companies belonging to the same Group.

5. Retention of personal data

We retain personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes described in the privacy statement, but at least for the period required by our legal obligations (such as accounting and reporting responsibilities and obligations) or for the purpose of resolving legal disputes or other similar disputes. When personal data is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was collected or otherwise processed, the personal data is deleted or rendered anonymous within a reasonable time.

Personal data obtained from third-party registry services is retained in accordance with the agreement with the party that provided the data.

Upon request, we will provide more information about our personal data retention policy.

Group companies may also process personal data on behalf of another Group company. When we use third parties to process personal data, we ensure that the agreements required by data protection regulations are in place.

We may disclose personal data to third parties in situations required by the law or the authorities or in order to investigate abuse and ensure data protection. In addition, we may be required to disclose personal data in connection with litigation or similar legal proceedings.
