Changes to the Finnish China Law Center’s Policies on Privacy and Data Protection

The Center is strongly committed to respecting privacy and protecting personal data.

To these ends, and to ensure the Finnish China Law Center’s records are accurate, from 25 May 2018 the Center will delete from its electronic databases all personal data it holds about people who have subscribed to receive email updates from the Center.

The Center will also delete personal data which has been provided to the Center as part of the process of registering to attend an event organized or hosted by the Center.

In addition, the Center is taking a range of other steps to protect personal data and to ensure compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation, enforcement of which begins on 25 May 2018.

For instance, the Center will ensure that if you give your name and email address and consent that the Center can use this information to send you email updates, you will easily be able to withdraw this consent later on, and have information about you that you have provided to the Center removed from the Center’s records.

You will also be entitled to exercise other rights under the EU General Data Protection Regulation.

The Center is based in and uses the physical and digital infrastructure of the University of Helsinki. Therefore, the Center operates under the University of Helsinki’s data protection statement.

If you have any questions about the Center’s privacy policy, compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation, and information security protocols, please contact the Coordinator of the Center, Stuart Mooney (stuart.mooney (at) helsinki.fi).
