We have been approved to distribute insurances and our companies can be found in the Financial Supervisory Authority’s register of insurance intermediaries. By using our joint website, you accept that the Söderberg & Partners group processes your client data and personal data. In addition to having an internal agreement regarding processing of personal data, we also have a controller’s legitimate interest to transmit personal data within the concern.

 

Data may be disclosed, inter alia, within our group, to insurance companies, pension institutions, social insurance institutions, health care providers, client entities and the subject individual for the fulfilment of our contractual obligations or in order to handle the matter in question; and to competent authorities in statutory situations. Data will be saved only as long as our contractual obligations to the client or our statutory obligations so require. We may, for example, save correspondence until the time frame to make a claim has expired. Unnecessary and outdated data will be erased, also at other times when deemed necessary or required by law or statutory regulations.

 

What personal data is processed?

What personal data does Söderberg & Partners process?

Even if you are not a customer with us we may process your data for marketing purposes.

Why is my personal data processed?

Why does Söderberg & Partners process my personal data?

Personal data pursuant to you as a customer is processed in order to execute our agreement along with other commitments we have with you, and to provide good customer service. Furthermore, we are required by law to document some of our customer relationships and we are therefore compelled to process personal data about our customers and their relatives. We also need to process certain personal data in order to manage our accounting and financial reporting. Finally, we process personal data to contact potential and existing customers, including for marketing purposes, and to develop systems, products and the offers we send to our customers.

Contacted without being a customer

I have been contacted by Söderberg & Partners, but I am not yet a customer

If you have been contacted by us without being a customer, we are processing your data for marketing purposes, which includes booking meetings with you. If you do not want us to process your personal data, please contact us and we will delete the data we have on you. Get in touch with your adviser, send an email to info.finland@soderbergpartners.com.

How is personal data protected?

How does Söderberg & Partners protect my personal data?

Söderberg & Partners runs a highly ambitious information security operation. This means, among other benefits, that we have robust technical solutions in place to protect all of our data, such as firewalls and intrusion protection. Moreover, we work with data access control, which means that personal data is not accessible to more employees than is absolutely necessary to enable each employee to perform his/her work duties. Finally, we set equivalently high security requirements on the suppliers who process your personal data on our behalf.
