Purpose of data processing
Autoklinikka processes personal data in order to provide repair services and assess damages and costs. The legal basis for this processing is the creation of, or the prior existence of, a contract between Autoklinikka and the data subject. The legal basis of this processing as a repair service is grounded in Autoklinikka’s legitimate interest in fulfilling a contract between Autoklinikka and a given organization. Billing information is processed as legally required.
We process personal data related to customer service and feedback. If the data is not related to providing repair services, the purpose of processing is Autoklinikka’s legitimate interest in providing excellent customer service.
Online services, marketing, and other processing
Providing online services requires the processing of online identifiers. We collect data on the use of our online services and tailor our marketing based on this. Providing online services, collecting data on their use, and marketing is in our legitimate business interest. By providing quality online services we make it easier for potential customers to interact with us. Electronic marketing allows us to inform potential customers of our services and directs business to us.
We also process personal data of Finnish-speaking individuals to:
- Provide mapping, location, and guidance services.
- Deliver updates on our new blog posts via MailChimp.
- Take steps prior to entering into contracts with organizations.
- Inform potential clients of our services and market our services to them.
- Process employment applications we receive.
We process personal data while ensuring the security of our processing and facilitating the exercising of data subject rights. The exercising of data subject rights requires that we confirm the identity of the data subject. We store information on data subject rights requests to demonstrate compliance.
