Staff have limited access to customer information Access to customer information is limited to those employees who have the need to access the information related to the job. We educate our staff to understand the importance of trust and customer privacy. We also have the accepted principles to classify information. We thus safeguard the confidentiality and storage of information.
High security requirements to protect customer data We use approved security rules and methods to prevent access to our customers' information from third parties who are not entitled to this. These methods include, for example, access control systems, firewalls, network security, fire security locks, and secure disposal of unnecessary data and documents.
Personal data relating to customers shall be disclosed only in the context of a regulated bank and investment firm's corporate secrecy or with the consent of the data subject. Information can be disclosed to companies within the same group for customer service, customer relationship management, marketing, and risk management. Information is disclosed to authorities that have a statutory right to information without prejudice to confidentiality provisions. This information can be provided by the Finnish authorities to the authorities of other countries, eg to tax authorities, according to Finnish laws in force at any given time. Information may also be disclosed to financial and insurance affiliates, for use in their customer service.
Customer has authorized us to provide this information The secrecy of a bank, a management company or an investment firm shall not preclude disclosure or, as the law requires, the competent authority to request information.
Protecting your privacy in business with third parties It is necessary to provide information about the customer to certain suppliers and service companies from whom we purchase services. For example, when ordering a payment card, we will provide the card issuer with the necessary information. We demand from these vendors and service companies the confidentiality and compliance with the law. We do not allow third parties to sell or use information for their own purposes.
When a customer uses our online services, we follow the same rules of trust and privacy as he is doing at our branch office. Read more about security and Akti's Terms of Service. For cookies used in our online services, please see below
We gather information from different parties to understand and meet the needs of users and to meet the customer-specific requirements of the law. For personal information about our customers, we collect, for example, the customer's own or his representatives, the Population Register Center and other registers maintained by the authorities, customer error and credit information records, companies within the same group, and financial and insurance affiliates within the limits permitted by law. We can also collect information from other trusted sources such as business registers containing corporate information and business owners. We endeavor to keep the information of our customers up-to-date, but if, despite everything, our customer finds mistakes in their information, for example in the statement, we ask the customer to report an incorrect entry.
The right to check their information and deny marketing The customer has the opportunity to check the information about himself that has been stored in our customer records by making a written request to the registrar. The customer has the right, by means of a notice to the controller, to prohibit the use of his or her personal information for direct marketing, distance selling and market or opinion surveys. The registry administrator immediately rectifies the information found in the registry as incorrect or obsolete. Due to confidentiality regulations, we can not respond to requests for verification by email via an open Internet.
