We collect and process information concerning the contact persons of member companies. We only collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or directly through the website or that which your employer has provided us with. The information we process may include your contact information, such as your name, telephone number and/or email address and other related information that you send to us.

We process your personal data because you are a contact person of an Amcham member company. Amcham, therefore, has a legitimate interest in processing such data. We use the information to respond to your questions and inquiries. We may also contact you in the future via email, unless you ask us not to.

Your data may be processed by Amcham staff members both in the EU and the United States. We will not disclose personal data to third parties but we may transfer your data to our service partners and use it for research purposes benefiting the membership. Such transfers will be carried out in compliance with applicable laws and necessary safeguards. We oblige such third parties to keep the transferred personal data confidential and secure.

By contacting us via the email address or phone number given above, you may:

• Access the data we have collected on you;
• Request us to erase or rectify any erroneous, unnecessary, incomplete or obsolete personal data;
• Prohibit us from processing your personal data; and
• Express any other concern you have about the use of your data.

Although we strive to solve any disagreements through negotiation, we would like to note that you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.

The data collected will be maintained so long as the company providing it is a member of Amcham Finland or affiliated with our programs or until the company informs us of a change in its contact personnel. Once such a membership or affiliation ends or the contact person is changed by request of the concerned party, the data will be deleted within 1 month of the expiry of the membership (membership occurs on an annual basis, and so the expiry date will always be December 31 unless expressly agreed otherwise).

We have implemented a number of technical and organizational measures necessary for securing the personal data against unlawful processing.

Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time and all updates will be posted on our website.
