General Data Protection Regulation - GDPR
The GDPR is an EU regulation in force from 25 May 2018. In brief, it addresses personal data and privacy issues for people within the European Union, aiming to give them control over their personal data. Under the GDPR, websites must obtain specific consent from visitors to collect personal data. These websites must also allow people access to their personal data, and the right to request erasure of personal data.
Expat Finland does not collect or store personal data, cannot identify site visitors, and does not engage in email marketing or personalised advertising. Therefore Expat Finland does not request specific consent for data collection from site visitors. This may change; the GDPR legislation is complex and interpretation is still unclear. Please contact me if I have misinterpreted and am in breach of the GDPR. Much appreciated!
Confidentiality of communications
Any personal information supplied to Expat Finland by telephone, email or the Contact form is known only to Expat Finland and will in no circumstance be disclosed, given or sold to, or traded with any third party, unless required to do so by law.
If Expat Finland discovers criminal or fraudulent activity on the part of a business, communications with that business may be revealed to expose said criminality or fraud.
Google Analytics cookies
Expat Finland uses the information in Google Analytics to evaluate use of the site and make improvements to the site. Additionally, some listings at Expat Finland are paid for (as indicated by a gold star); these listings are non-personalised. Google Analytics reports tell Expat Finland for example how many people clicked the links in paid listings, and Expat Finland may inform advertisers of those figures.
Expat Finland uses social sharing features that let you share its content with other media - for example, each Expat Finland page includes a "Share on Facebook" button. Your use of these features entails the sharing of certain information with your friends or the public, depending on the settings you establish with the third party that provides the social sharing feature.
