2. Personal Data and Categories of Personal Data to be Processed

We only collect personal information that is necessary for pre-defined uses. When we collect information, we tell you what information is a prerequisite for using the services and what information the user can provide if they wish. The information is primarily collected from the data subject themselves when they log in and use the services. Information about the data subject can also be stored in the services by instructors or a registered employer.

In addition to service user and training information, we process the following customer information:

  • basic information, such as first and last name, address, contact details, date of birth or social security number, position, employer, gender, native language, country of birth
  • basic information about the persons responsible for teaching, secretaries, teachers and instructors. These include first and last name, contact information, company name and business ID
  • information about the use of the services, such as the username and password, the information collected automatically through the use of the application and its various functions as well as information provided by the user in the application
  • basic information of the employer community, such as name and contact details (address, e-mail address, telephone number) and the name and contact details of the contact person
  • training information, such as information on the training attended or enrolled by the data subject and the degrees they have completed
  • information related to the contractual relationship, such as the time of use of the service, communication and transactions related to the service as well as information related to invoicing and collection
  • direct marketing authorisations and bans

In addition, we collect information about the use of our services as described in the cookie clause.

3. Purposes of the Processing and Legal Basis

The data is processed for the following purposes:

  • Implementation of Services: We use personal information to identify and log in the user, provide, maintain and protect the services, invoice and collect as well as communicate with the data subject. As part of providing the service, we may also analyse the use of the services, the training information of the data subjects and the responses of the data subjects to the queries to create a user-friendly learning profile to provide a more customised service. Without the mandatory information marked with an asterisk, the services cannot be provided in accordance with the agreement. This processing is based on the performance of the contract.
  • Maintaining the Learning Database: In the learning database, we combine the learning and professional qualifications of the data subject in the same view. We may use this information to notify the data subject of expiring professional licences or other qualifications as well as provide the data subject's employer or potential employer with access to the data subject's learning and professional qualifications necessary for the employer's operations. This data processing is based on a legitimate interest.
  • Marketing: We use data to market our products and services. Marketing messages can be customised using information provided by users or collected about the use of services. In this case, the processing is based on the data subject's consent or legitimate interest. The data subject may object to the marketing or withdraw their consent at any time.
  • Product Development and Reporting: We use data to improve our services. For example, customer contacts help us understand what features are desired for our services. This processing of data is based on our legitimate interest.
  • Prevention and Investigation of Abuse: From time to time we need to use the information to prevent and investigate abuse. For example, automatically collected log information allows us to monitor and determine the actions of the information system user and the lawfulness of the use of the data in accordance with our legitimate interests. This processing of data is based on our legitimate interest.
  • Statutory Obligations: We retain correspondence regarding documents and transactions for six years from the end of the calendar year in which the financial year ends in order to comply with the Accounting Act. For example, in the above situation, the processing of personal data is based on compliance with a legal obligation.

Driver data such as driving licence and driving licence related data as well as professional qualification data such as initial and continuing learning data for lorry and bus drivers and taxi drivers, and licence data, are public data that training centres and professional transport operators need to process. It is also in the data subject's interest that the compiled information is available to the employer or potential employer in an up-to-date manner. In so far as the processing is based on a legitimate interest, we consider that the data subject can reasonably await the processing, taking into account the public nature of the information, the employer-employee relationship and the need for the professional transport company to process in order to fulfill the contractual and legal obligation. Treatment based on a legitimate interest may be opposed as described below.

4. Data Retention Period

We will retain the information for as long as is necessary to fulfill the purposes defined above in accordance with applicable law. Learning records shall be kept in accordance with the Driving Licence Act and the Act on the Professional Qualifications of Truck and Bus Drivers for six calendar years following the year in which the training or examination was completed.

After the above period, we will truncate the information and process the name and contact information as well as individual information describing the user profile for marketing purposes as long as the data subject has not refused to receive marketing messages. If the registrant refuses the marketing and there is no other reason to process the data, we will retain information about the ban and contact information so that we can ensure compliance with the ban. The data subject may also request the deletion of their data in its entirety.

We strive to keep the personal information we hold accurate and up-to-date by deleting unnecessary information and updating outdated information. However, we encourage users of the Services to periodically check that their information is up to date by logging into the Services. The data subject can also influence the data retention period themselves through the options described below.

We comply with our legal obligations to retain information.

8. Registry Security Principles

The data is kept technically secure. Physical access to the data is blocked by access control as well as other security measures. Access to information requires adequate rights as well as multi-stage authentication. Unauthorised access is also prevented, e.g. with firewalls and technical protection.

The data is backed up securely and can be restored, if necessary. The level of security is audited at regular intervals through either external or internal auditing. The data shall be accessible only to the controller and to specifically designated persons who have access to the data in order to carry out their tasks. Users are bound by professional secrecy.
