Data protection has always been part of our operations. Recently, digitalization has changed the way personal data is used in our society. This has created a need to update regulations to align them with the new and current ways of using personal data. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the EU has been applied to all companies and organization that process personal data since May 25, 2018. The purpose of the GDPR is to emphasize a person’s right to decide on their personal data and the way it is used. ValueSource Partners is committed to protecting the privacy of the users of our services in accordance with the GDPR as well as other applicable legislation. Below, you can find more information on the data we collect and the way we process it.
ValueSource Partners’ corporate customer and corporate decision-maker registers are maintained for the purpose of customer relationship management, targeted communications, and developing the services provided by ValueSource Partners (hereinafter referred to as “ValueSource”).
The data we collect for our registers includes: the name and address of the company, the names, titles, potential job descriptions, email addresses, and phone numbers of contact persons as well as additional information pertaining to assignments, invoicing, training, or events.
As a rule, the data is collected from the persons themselves as well as companies during the customer relationship but also from other sources. For example, data may be collected if you subscribe to our blog or enter information in other electronic forms via our website. We may also collect data from public sources, such as company websites, service providers (such as Suomen Asiakastieto Oy, Fonecta Oy) or private or public registers.
