Transfer of information outside the EU or EEA or to international organisations
As a general rule, personal data contained in the <em>personal data register of the xx activities / project of Metropolia </em>will not be transferred outside the EU or EEA or to international organisations.
However, personal data contained in the personal data register may be transferred outside the EU or the EEA in order to provide IT services necessary for work or study, on a case-by-case basis. The destination country to which the personal data is transferred then, is mainly the United States. It is also possible that India is the destination country as global ICT service providers use often India as a host country for the international helpdesk service / ICT technical user support. International transfers of personal data from the Metropolia University of Applied Sciences' personal register to the United States and / or elsewhere outside the EU / EEA are primarily secured then by the safeguard provided for in Article 46 of Chapter V of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), standard contractual clauses. The SCC (Standard Contractual Clauses) clauses will be included as part of the personal data processing agreement to be drawn up with the ICT service provider. Only the necessary data will be transferred and the transfer will be made in accordance with and within the limits set by data protection law. The security and data protection of the transfer are always agreed separately.
<em> (-> If you use IT systems, softwares etc. provided by IT service provider registered in United States /outside the EU/EAA, it might be possible that the IT service provider uses servers for the data storage located in United States /outside the EU/EEA -> This might mean that personal data will be transferred to United States/ outside the EU/EEA as the storing of personal data is considered as processing of personal data according to the GDPR, and as storing personal data into the data storage servers located outside the EU/EEA, is considered as transferring personal data outside the EU/EEA according to the GDPR).</em>
<em>If that is the case, you need to specify to which third countries outside the EU or EEA you are transferring personal data <strong>(list of countries/mapping of countries).</strong></em>
<em>When mapping transfers, do not forget to also take into account onward transfers, for instance whether your processors outside the EEA transfer the personal data you entrusted to them to a sub-processor in another third country or in the same third country. In other words, you must know where the personal data you exported may be located or processed by the importers <strong>(map of destinations).</strong></em>
<em>Keep in mind that remote access from a third country (for example in support situations) and/or storage in a cloud situated outside the EEA, is also considered to be a transfer. More specifically, if you are using an international cloud infrastructure you must assess if your data will be transferred to third countries and where, unless the cloud provider clearly states in its contract that the data will not be processed at all in third countries.</em>
<em>As a next step, you must <strong>identify the transfer tools (safeguards)</strong> you are relying on amongst those described in the Chapter V of the GDPR (Articles 45 - 49). </em>
<em>Article 46 of the Chapter V of the GDPR lists<strong> standard contractual clauses (SCCs)</strong> as a transfer tool containing “appropriate safeguards” for the data transfer.</em>
<em>Whatever GDPR transfer tool you choose, you must ensure that, overall, the transferred personal data will have the benefit of an essentially equivalent level of protection. <strong>“An essentially equivalent level of protection”</strong> means that the transferred personal data is afforded a level of protection in the third country that is essentially equivalent to that are guaranteed in the EEA where strict data protection legislation prevails. </em>
<em>It might be useful to contact Data Protection Officer of Metropolia UAS (</em><a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org"><em>email@example.com</em></a><em>; </em><a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org"><em>tietosuojavastaava@metropo…;) in a case considering international personal data transfers outside the EU or EEA.</em>
Personal data retention times
When the data collection is based on consent, the personal data collected for and processed within LGIN register will be immediately removed upon request. When data collection is based on a contract, such as an employment contract or a collaboration contract, the data will be stored for as long as the contract stands.
The controller of the data file regularly evaluates the need for storing data in accordance with its internal practices. The personal information in the project register is only stored for as long as and to the extent that each category of data is needed, proportionate to the purpose of processing of the personal data.
Right to Object
According to Article 21 of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation, the data subjects have the right to object, on grounds relating to their particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning them which is based on point (e) of Article 6(1) (processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller), such as profiling based on these provisions. The data controller may no longer process the personal data unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
The request to stop processing of collected personal data can be submitted to one of the three above-mentioned offices of Metropolia’s Student and Admission Services or Metropolia’s Human Resources Management unit (staff only), where the data subject must prove their identity when submitting the request.
Right to withdraw consent
If the processing of personal data is based on the data subject’s consent, the data subject has the right to withdraw their consent for processing at any time without the withdrawal of consent affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
The withdrawal of consent for the processing of personal data collected by Metropolia (withdrawal request) can be submitted to one of the three above-mentioned offices of Metropolia’s Student and Admission Services (or in the case of a member of staff, to the Human Resources Management unit), where the data subject must prove their identity when submitting the request.
