3. The purpose of processing personal data

The data of service providers or goods suppliers shall be processed when handling orders, invoices and payments. Through processing the data it is possible to ensure that the orders made by Yle and any invoices resulting from these orders are coupled with the right supplier. The data is used for communicating with and contacting the suppliers with regard to the orders, as well as for company-internal reporting for the purpose of supplier management.

The legitimate basis for the processing of personal data is implementing an agreement. The data subject is a party to the agreement, and his or her personal data is processed for the purpose of implementing the agreement. The agreement relating to ordering goods or services, successful communication and cooperation requires processing personal data in Yle’s data files.

4. Data content of the files and storage of the data

The files on orders contain the supplier’s business and contact details as well as the supplier’s contact person’s name and contact details.

The data are stored only for the period needed for the agreement as well as to comply with the statutory retention periods defined in the Accounting Act.

5. Recipients and processors of personal data

Supplier data is processed by employees of Yle’s finance department and Yle’s employees who place orders. The data is not disclosed to third parties.

6. Regular sources of information

Suppliers submit the data to be entered into Yle’s files on a form designed for the purpose.

7. Transfer of data to countries outside the EU and the EEA

The data are processed in Yle’s finance management system which is located in the EU/EEA. Auxiliary services for the system may be located in countries outside the EU and the EEA. With regard to auxiliary services to a system used by Yle, if the recipient country does not provide an adequate level of data protection, EU standard contractual clauses will be used to ensure adequate data protection.

8. Data protection principles

As the data controller, Yle is responsible for ensuring that data saved in the system is used in compliance with good information security principles and guidelines issued by the data controller.
Only the controller and service providers and administrators authorised by the controller have access to the data in the files. Only persons whose tasks require processing personal data are granted access to the data. Authorised persons can access the data only with a personal user ID and password.

9. Rights of the data subject

According to the data protection legislation, data subjects have the following rights:

  • Right to access personal data: The data subject has the right to obtain from the controller information on whether or not their personal data are being processed. Where that is the case, the data subject may access their own personal data.

  • Right to object to processing personal data: The data subject has the right to object to the processing of the data subject’s personal data, where grounds for such a request exist.
  • Right to data portability: The data subject has the right to data portability of the personal data concerning them, in a machine-readable format.
