Personal data can be disclosed, within the limits permitted and required by the legislation in force from time to time, e.g. on behalf of Kojamo to business partners carrying out debt collection as well as to parties that have the right to obtain data in accordance with the legislation, or if the establishment, exercise or defence of a legal claim requires that personal data are disclosed. Personal data can also be transferred to Kojamo’s service providers that process personal data on behalf of Kojamo under the obligation of confidentiality and a binding data processing agreement. 

As a rule, data are not transferred outside the European Union’s Member States or the European Economic Area, unless it is necessary for the purposes of the processing of the personal data or the technical implementation of the data processing.

The access request must be sent to Kojamo in accordance with Section 2, and it must be in writing and signed. The access request can also be made in person at Kojamo’s office. The access request can be declined based on the grounds provided by law. The exercise of the right of access and the provision of a copy are usually provided free of charge; however, Kojamo may charge a reasonable fee based on administrative costs of taking the action requested, if the data subject requests copies repeatedly or the requests are manifestly unfounded or excessive.

Right to object to the processing of personal data in certain cases 

The data subject has the right to object, on grounds relating to a particular personal situation, to processing of personal data by Kojamo which is based on Kojamo’s legitimate interest. In that case the data subject should contact Kojamo in accordance with Section 2 and specify the grounds on which he/she objects to processing. Kojamo can deny the request on the grounds provided by law. 

Right to withdraw consent 

If personal data are processed based on the data subject’s consent, the data subject has the right to withdraw his/her consent by notifying Kojamo in accordance with Section 2. 

Right to data portability 

To the extent that the data subject has provided data to the register to be processed in order to perform a contract between Kojamo and the data subject or based on a consent given by the data subject, the data subject has the right to receive this data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and has the right to transmit those data to another controller (if this is technically feasible). 

Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority 

The data subject is entitled to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority if Kojamo has not complied with the data protection regulations applicable to its operations.
