TYS pay special attention to protecting the customers’ privacy and personal data, and comply with good data processing principles.

Personal data are mainly collected from the customers themselves. In addition, personal data are collected from e.g. the credit information register of Suomen Asiakastieto Oy and the population data system of the Population Register Centre.

In addition, TYS may collect data of the users’ terminals on their websites through cookies and other similar techniques such as web analytics (see more about this in Terms of use). As a rule, no collected data is released outside TYS, with the exception of situations where the ownership of the apartment changes and cooperating partners in accordance with the data protection plan.

According to the Personal Data Act, every person has the right to inspect which data concerning them has been recorded. The data access request cannot be made on the phone, as it must be given in writing and personally signed.

The customer has the right to demand the rectification, deletion or completion of any data concerning them in the register that is incorrect, outdated, incomplete or unnecessary for the purpose of processing.
