The legal justification for processing personal data is fulfilling the contract between the parties or the legitimate interest of the controller, which is based on the relationship between the parties. The legal justification may also be the data subject consent, if the applicable legislation so requires. If you have questions about this legal basis you can contact Kohtas' Data Protection Officer.

You are not required to provide the personal information that we have requested, but, not providing the requested personal information may in many cases mean that we will not be able to provide you with our products or services or respond to your queries.


Personal data may be disclosed to purposes described in this Privacy Policy in accordance with applicable data protection legislation. No information is, however, given to any third party for direct marketing purposes without an explicit permission of the user, excluding legal reasons for giving the information for authorities.

Kohtas may also share information to safety, security, and legal compliance for the purposes such as to satisfy any applicable laws or regulations. Personal data may be shared or transferred, if Kohtas explores or undergoes a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, transfer of control, or sale of assets.

Personal data may be processed by authorized third parties, who process the data on behalf of Kohtas for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy (for instance, third-party service providers of technical infrastructure or services). Such service providers may use the personal data only according to the instructions from Kohtas, i.e. only for the purpose for which the data has been collected.

Personal data may be processed outside the EEA or European Union by Kohtas' third party service providers as further defined in applicable privacy policies of third parties. Kohtas shall not be liable for such policies. The transfer of personal data to third countries may be affected by an appropriate transfer agreement in accordance with template clauses currently in force at the EU Commission and/or any other personal data transfer requirements at that time or as otherwise permitted by applicable law.

You have the rights according to the personal data legislation applicable in Finland, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), to request access to the personal data that Kohtas has collected about you for the purposes of reviewing, modifying, or requesting deletion of the data. You may also have the right to request a copy of the personal data that Kohtas has collected about you and to have any inaccuracies in that data corrected. In certain circumstances, you may also request that we cease processing your personal data. Whether you make the request by electronic means and you have not requested it by any other means, the information shall be provided by electronic means.

You also have the right to receive confirmation from Kohtas as to whether or not personal data concerning you are being processed and the right to prohibit the processing of personal data for direct marketing purposes.. To help protect your privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity, such as requiring a password and user ID, before granting access to your personal data. We will make reasonable attempts to promptly investigate, comply with, or otherwise respond to your requests as may be required by applicable law. Different laws may prevent us from providing access to your personal data or otherwise fully complying with your request depending upon the circumstances and the request, such as for example, where producing your information may reveal the identity of someone else. We reserve the right to charge an appropriate fee for complying with your request where allowed by applicable law, and/or deny your requests where they may be manifestly unfounded, and/or excessive, or otherwise objectionable or unwarranted under applicable law.

If processing of personal data is based on consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent. The withdrawal of consent may, however, affect the usability and functionality of the service in question. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

In certain cases, the data subject has also the right to request from the controller restriction of processing of personal data or otherwise object to processing. Furthermore, you may require the transmission of the personal data, which you have provided to the controller in a machine-readable format based on the GDPR. All requests mentioned here shall be provided to contact person of Kohtas mentioned below. Whether you find the processing of your personal data unlawful, you have the right to lodge a complaint to the authorities responsible for personal data protection.
