Data Privacy Statement

 

 

1. General

It is a pleasure to welcome you to our website. Please read through the Privacy Policy contained in this document, since, by using this website, you declare your agreement to these conditions.

As the party responsible for processing your data, Also Cloud Oy, Salomonkatu 17, 00100 Helsinki, Finland has implemented a large number of technical and organizational measures with the aim of ensuring that your personal data processed via this website is protected with all round security where possible. Nevertheless, internet-based data transfers may, as a matter of principle, give rise to security gaps, so that total security cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is more than welcome to send us personal data by other means, over the telephone for example. 

 

2. Data protection
1. When you visit the ALSO website, both general information and person-related data are recorded and collected automatically (i.e. not by registration). We use the person-related data specifically for processing orders, delivering goods, checking creditworthiness, processing payments, preventing misuse of our website, and informing you about orders, products, services, and offerings. When necessary, we collect data about your online interactions with our company (for example, the pages that you visit and the links and advertisements that you click). The webservers that are used store as standard, for example, the name of your internet service provider, the website from which you visit us, our websites that you visit, and your IP address. These items of information are used exclusively to improve the attractiveness, contents, and functionalities of our website. If data are communicated to external service providers, we ensure by technical and organizational means that the data protection regulations are observed.

2. The careful handling of person-related data is of central importance for ALSO. When collecting, processing, and using data, we strictly adhere to the legal stipulations. In certain operations, (e.g. participation in competitions, contacting us, submission of your job application documents, use of protected areas, etc.), you voluntarily reveal to us some of your person-related data. You therefore agree that ALSO may use the person-related data that you submit for processing the respective business transaction or, should the occasion arise, use your address and order data for marketing purposes, make them accessible to other companies within the ALSO Group, or communicate your person-related data to third parties. If third-party providers have access to these data, the protection of your person-related data is always assured by corresponding contracts and restrictions of purpose. Needless to say, you can at any time revoke your permission for the use and processing of your data, especially for marketing purposes, by sending us a corresponding notification. You can do this with a formless notification to the e-mail address privacy.fi@also.com.

3. We store person-related data for as long as it is necessary to perform a service that you have requested, or to which you have agreed, provided that there are no legal obligations to the contrary, such as, for example, archiving periods under commercial or tax law.

4. ALSO has implemented technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against manipulation, loss, and destruction, as well as against access, by unauthorized persons. These measures are continuously updated and improved to correspond with technological development. Your person-related data are transmitted over the internet from your computer to our server and vice versa in encrypted form. The actual level of encryption depends inter alia on your computer. Always use the latest browser so that you can encrypt your data with 128 bits.

5. The ALSO Group uses cookies. Cookies are small text files which the web server inserts at various points in the browser of your computer and which enable you to be identified when you next visit the website. The cookies we use do not record any personal data (except for personal data that you enter with your login, such as your customer number, etc.), nor do they damage your computer or contain viruses. While you are using our internet offering, we mainly insert on the hard disk of your computer so-called “session” cookies, which are only of significance for your visit to our website. The sole purpose of these cookies is to control the connection and navigation and to make user-friendly surfing in our internet offering possible for you. The cookies “remember”, for example, certain settings during your session and save you having to re-enter them repeatedly. Session cookies are deleted when you terminate your browser session. We also insert “persistent” cookies, which have a long life and enable us to recognize your browser again at your next visit.

Your browser offers you the option of receiving a warning message when a web server wants to insert a cookie on your computer. You can either accept cookies or reject them. Most browsers are automatically set to accept cookies. However, you can also set your browser to block cookies or warn you that cookies are being sent. However, we must point out that, without the use of cookies, our ALSO Shops do not function.

After you leave our website, you can manually delete cookies from the hard disk of your computer if, for example, a fault in the internet connection makes it impossible for them to be removed automatically.

6. On its internet pages, ALSO uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use our website.
