Company Information

Saarni Learning provides software and services to both public and private clients in Europe. Our headquarters are in Tampere, and our operations are governed by EU data protection regulations. Our Data Protection Officer oversees compliance with data protection practices.

Applicability of Data Privacy Statement

This privacy statement applies to all Saarni Learning’s processes, domain names, mobile applications, and cloud services. Applicable service descriptions, privacy policies, and separate data processing agreements specify and, if necessary, limit the details and procedures of data protection for each service and customer.

Data Privacy and Data Retention

Privacy is of utmost importance to us. We adhere to at least the requirements of EU data protection laws in all our activities. Our employees receive regular data protection training. Applicable service descriptions with attachments define the details and implementation methods of our data protection practices. Our goal is to develop our operations in accordance with CSA CCM, ISO/IEC 27001, KATAKRI, OWASP, and VAHTI standards.

We retain your personal data only for as long as necessary for the stated purposes and to fulfil legal obligations. We regularly delete outdated and unnecessary personal data from our records.

Personal Data

Personal data refers to information that can likely be used to identify and recognize an individual. Typical examples of personal data include names, addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses.

Saarni Learning as Data Controller

We act as a data controller when we determine the purpose and methods of processing your personal data. We are also a data controller when we collect personal data about you as a customer, potential customer, job applicant, or end user of our service. We process personal data, among other things, to fulfil contracts or based on legitimate interests.

Processing of Personal Data on Behalf of Customers

Our services involve the processing of personal data of our customers’ employees and other individuals. In this case, the customer determines the purpose of processing personal data and acts as the data controller, while Saarni Learning acts as the data processor. The customer determines and is responsible for the legal bases for processing personal data. The customer must also comply with the data controller’s obligation to provide information to data subjects.

Sub-processors and Data Transfers

We may use sub-processors for the processing of personal data. In this case, we may transfer personal data outside the EU. When using sub-processors, Saarni Learning enters into data processing agreements with them. We ensure the legal basis for international transfers, for example, through EU standard contractual clauses. More specific and often more restrictive terms and conditions for Saarni Learning’s services are available in the applicable service descriptions.

Marketing communication

In terms of marketing communication, we follow the principles and practices defined by Saarni Cloud our parent company. A register is maintained of customers, potential customers, and their contact persons of our group’s various businesses. The content of the register is limited to only those organisations and persons who are estimated to be interested in the services offered by our group or ecosystem partners. Targeted marketing communication can be sent to entities in the register by the group, the group’s various business functions or our ecosystem partners. At the end of each marketing message or newsletter, there are instructions for withdrawing consent to marketing communication.

Your Rights

You have all the rights under EU privacy laws. For example, you can request a summary of your personal data, request corrections to incorrect personal data, object to the processing of personal data, and request your personal data to be deleted. If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please contact us at our email address. All requests will be handled promptly and without delays. In case Saarni Learning is not the data controller of your personal data, we will immediately forward your request to such data controller.
