  2. Data protection officer at the University of Helsinki

    You can contact the data protection officer at the University of Helsinki via email at: tietosuoja@helsinki.fi.

  3. Parties to the collaboration project and the assignment of responsibilities

    The University of Helsinki is the service administrator. All universities are individually responsible for the administration of students’ and other end users’ user credentials. Each university is responsible for processing their students’ personal data.

  4. Why are your personal data processed, i.e. what is the purpose of processing the data?

    The University of Helsinki has to process your personal data for the following purposes:

    Students and other end users log in to the service using their organisation’s Haka credentials. The data from the login are used for verifying the user’s access rights and for some functions within the service, such as sending the feedback received to the user’s own email. All data concerning the user are deleted either at logout or at the latest, within twenty-four hours of the end of the user session.

    Lawful basis for processing personal data:

    to meet a legal obligation to which the controller is subject:

    The missions set out in the Universities Act also include educating students to serve their country and humanity at large, and to interact with the surrounding society. This service is part of student services.

  5. What type of personal data does the University of Helsinki process?

    We process the following personal data in the system:

    Contact details required for identifying main users, i.e. information relating to system administration. These details include the name, email address and user ID. These data are from each of the universities participating in the service.

    As for end users (mostly students), we process the user’s name and email address in the service during the session. This information is retrieved from the university’s use authorisation system. To verify access rights, information on the user’s university is required. The information is deleted from the system at logout or at the latest, within twenty-four hours of the end of the browser session.

  6. Where do the personal data come from, i.e. what is their origin?

    The register information is received via the Haka logging system. The information comes from the use authorisation system of each of the universities. Possible errors in personal data must thus be reported to the user’s own university.

  7. Transfer or disclosure of data outside the University of Helsinki

    All personal data processed in the system are processed in a data centre of a third party, in data systems maintained by the third party. The data centre and all technical experts who have access to the information are located within the EEA.

    Druid Oy is responsible for the technical maintenance of the system, and their experts can add or remove main users of the application if requested by the ordering party.

    The IP addresses of the service users are processed in Google Analytics’ visitor tracking. Some of the servers used by Google Analytics are located in the United States. The use of the service is monitored and analysed with Google Analytics software. The IP addresses retrieved from the users are anonymised before transferring them to Google’s servers.

  8. How long are the personal data stored?

    The information is deleted from the system at logout or at the latest, within twenty-four hours of the end of the browser session. In addition, answers to questions or summary reports are not available via the application after the session.

    The main user data are stored in the system for as long as the person is appointed as a main user. The data of those main users who have exited the system are deleted from the system either by another main user or Druid Oy’s administrator.

  9. Transferring the data outside the EU or EEA

    The anonymised IP addresses of the service users are processed in Google Analytics’ visitor tracking. Thus, the data are not transferred outside the EU or EEA.
