4. Why do we collect data?

The purpose of the register is to maintain contact and customer relationship information for the Aholansaari Foundation and its subsidiary Aholansaari Tourism Ltd (both of which are also referred to as Aholansaari), volunteers, donors, subscribers to friends' letters and other customers. The customer register is an essential tool for Aholansaari's marketing and mailings, as well as an archive directory. Those on the register can be informed about the activities and campaigns of Aholansaari and, in special cases, of the Foundation's partner organisations and sister organisations (the Awakener Association, Wanha Karhunmäki) by e-mail or paper mail. However, no direct marketing will be sent to the customer without his/her consent. The Customer has the right to withdraw his/her consent to direct marketing at any time.

Personal data of the customer may be processed for the following purposes:

  • customer relationship management and development
  • implementation of the service
  • verification of customer transactions
  • developing customer service
  • marketing (direct mail)
  • analysis and statistics
  • studies

5. What information do we collect?

The register may contain, among other things, the following information:

  • Person's full name
  • Postal address
  • E-mail address
  • Phone number
  • Date of birth
  • Sex
  • Language
  • In the case of a minor client/participant, also the contact details of the guardian
  • Any health information from participants in camps and events that is relevant both for the safety of the person and to ensure appropriate catering services.
  • Customer relationship information such as order and payment information, customer feedback and contacts, sweepstakes and contest information, and cancellation information.
  • Permissions and consents, if any

  • the date of arrival and departure of the passenger at the accommodation establishment

When required by the law on accommodation and catering of 28.4.2006/308.

6. How do we collect the data?

Contact and supporter information in the register is obtained from the customer themselves by telephone, post or via the internet through various forms, contact forms filled in at events or by email. For example, addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses of employees of client communities may be collected from public websites.

7. How do we store your data?

The register is kept only in electronic form and only persons authorised by the controller have access to it. The persons who process the data in the register are bound by the obligation of professional secrecy. We will only keep personal data for as long as necessary for the purposes specified in the privacy notice, unless otherwise required by law. We will endeavour to ensure that personal data and other customer information is kept up to date and accurate.

8. To whom do we disclose your personal data?

The Aholansaari Foundation will not disclose contact information collected through the website and promotional events to third parties and will only use the information for its own activities. For events on Aholansa Island and events lasting more than 24 hours on the island, participant lists are required for both accommodation and security purposes. For partners and subcontractors (e.g. accommodation booking systems, accounting services) acting on behalf of the Foundation who process personal data on our behalf and who are involved in the production of a service chain for that client or who contractually invoice their services directly to that client, we disclose data on the basis of a mandate given by us. The same applies to the collection of claims. These third parties may not use the personal data for any other purpose than to provide the service contracted with us.

The data of the guests will be handed over to the police (North Savo Police Department) as required by the law on accommodation and catering 28.4.2006/308. Personal data will not be disclosed outside the EU or the European Economic Area.
