This privacy notice describes how we at Scanwings Oy process personal data when acting as a data controller.

PURPOSES AND LEGAL BASIS OF PROCESSING

In the course of our business, we collect and process personal data of our prospective, present and former clients, business partners, and agents.

The purposes of collecting and processing personal data depend on the capacity in which you interact with us. The main purposes for collecting and processing personal data at Scanwings Oy are:

  • Seeking potential customers and developing customer relationships
  • Carrying out marketing activities related to our products and services
  • Providing services and consultation to our customers including both on-site and remote technical service and support, as well as charter and medevac flight services to our customer.

  • Promoting Scanwings Oy’s products and services
  • Conducting market studies and research
  • Administrative purposes such as planning and developing Scanwings Oy’s business operations.

We only process personal data when we have a legal basis to do so. The legal basis depends on the personal data concerned and the specific context in which we process it.

This means that we collect and process personal data in the following cases:

  • To fulfill a contract when you have entered into an agreement with us or are considering to do so
  • When we have a legitimate interest such as a business or commercial reason to process personal data − these reasons might include e.g. the management and development of customer relationship or business operations. When we use legitimate interest as a legal basis, we carefully consider that such processing is compatible with the data subject’s rights and freedoms.
  • For compliance with our legal or statutory obligations
  • When you have given us your prior consent to process personal data

CATEGORIES OF PERSONAL DATA WE PROCESS

The data we process depends on the nature of our relationship with you. We typically process personal data categories such as:

  • General contact information and other information such as name, phone number, email address, mailing address, and other contact details

RETENTION PERIOD

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes described in this Privacy Notice and to comply with mandatory legislation such as accounting requirements. As a general rule, we process relevant personal data for the duration of the customer contract and for a predefined period after the contract is fulfilled. We delete all the personal data where retention period has expired on regular basis. We aim to make sure that personal data we process is up to date and correct. In some circumstances, we may anonymise personal data for e.g. statistical purposes.

DATA TRANSFERS AND PROCESSING OUTSIDE THE EU/EEA

We are a global company and due to technical and operational requirements we may process personal data outside the European Union and/or the European Economic Area. If we transfer personal data outside the EU/EEA, the transfer will be carried out in accordance with appropriate transfer mechanisms, such as using the standard data protection clauses.

We may share personal data within our group companies and regional dealers and suppliers. In some cases, we may share personal data with appropriate and authorised service providers e.g. agents, who provide permit and ground handling services and IT hosting providers. We may also share personal data with third party recipients e.g. government authorities and other regulatory bodies. We only share information with government authorities if required to do so to comply with a legal or statutory requirement.

SECURITY OF PROCESSING

We maintain appropriate and adequate organisational, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect against the unlawful or unauthorised destruction, loss, alteration, use or disclosure of, or access to, the personal information provided to us. Only authorised persons have access to the personal data we maintain, and the access is on a strict 'need-to-know' basis. We require all employees who have access to any personal data to handle it strictly confidential.
