Your rights related to privacy

You have the following rights concerning the personal data Lahti Region Ltd holds about you:

  • Right of access to your personal data: you have the right to inspect the personal data we hold about you;
  • Right to request rectification of inaccurate or incomplete data concerning you;
  • Right to request erasure of your data in the following cases:
    • You withdraw your consent from the processing of personal data and there is no other legal basis for the processing

In many cases due to financial and accounting legislation, we are obliged to retain your personal data throughout the duration of the customer relationship and even after it, if the data processing is necessary in order to fulfil statutory obligations. In accordance with the Finnish Accounting Act (Chapter 2, Section 10), the data controller has an obligation to retain accounting material for at least ten (10) years. Due to this, accounting material cannot be destroyed before the end of the statutory retention period.

If you wish to exercise any of the above-mentioned rights, requests are evaluated case by case.

For how long will Lahti Region Ltd retain personal data?

We retain your personal data for as long as it is needed for the purpose for which it was collected and processed or, as long as required by law and provisions. For instance:

  • Accounting regulations: up to ten (10) years

Who is processing your personal data?

The data controller and its employees process personal data. We may also partly outsource the processing of personal data to a third party. If we do, we will ensure, by using contractual arrangements, that the processing of personal data complies with data protection legislation and is done in an appropriate manner.
