We also use our customers’ personal information to provide important information about the services.

TRANSFER OF PERSONAL DATA TO THIRD PARTIES

We do not sell, exchange, or otherwise transfer personal information to third parties. This does not include trusted third parties that assist us in maintaining our site or in performing our business, but these parties are also to keep this information confidential.

We believe that sharing information may be necessary when it comes to investigating, preventing, or otherwise dealing with illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations that may potentially endanger the physical security of a person, violation of our Terms of Use, and other statutory situations.

TRANSFER OF PERSONAL DATA OUTSIDE THE EU OR THE EEA

Method Makia may use subcontractors to produce and deliver Method Makia’s services. Personal data may be transferred to the extent necessary to subcontractors outside the EU. In this case, we only use service providers who are committed to the United States and who are committed to the so-called EU-US Privacy Shield. More information on the Privacy Shield and related personal data processing principles is available here.

RETENTION OF PERSONAL DATA

Personal data will be kept confidential and will be retained as long as the user is registered with our service, to enable the operation of the service. When users remove their user account from our service or request us to do so, all personal information contained in our service will be deleted. Fees paid by a user in our service as well as entries about exercises and weight management are retained anonymously for development of the service.

PRINCIPLES OF PROTECTION FOR THE REGISTER

The personal data register is protected by modern security mechanisms, including firewalls, cryptographic practices, and other technical mechanisms that guarantee the level of security. The personal data register is located on the Name.com data centers in Europe.

The use of the register is limited to within the registrar’s organization, such that access to the register is limited to those employees who have the right of access as part of their duties and who need information for their duties.

USE OF COOKIES

Cookies may occasionally be transferred to the user’s computer. Cookies gather information about how and when the service is used. Using this information, the service is further developed to better serve users. In addition, the data is used in monitoring visitor numbers to the service. The information collected by cookies does not identify an individual user. You can read more about the cookies we use here.

USERS’ RIGHTS TO THEIR PERSONAL DATA

Users have the right to deny Method Makia the right to use their email address for marketing purposes. This is done either by clicking on the “cancel subscription” link at the bottom of our marketing email, or by informing us that you wish to be removed from our mailing list.

Users can, via the service, view all personal data stored on their personal records and can make the necessary corrections themselves. All user information is acquired through the service and users have access to all this information. However, users have the right to request this information from us as well. This can be done by sending a request by letter signed by the user to Method Makia, Päijänteenkatu 9-11, 15140 Lahti, Finland. Checking of information is free of charge once a year.

Because users can modify and correct their personal information in person, this is the recommended way to correct information. However, users also have the right to request that we make the necessary corrections. This can be done by sending a request by letter signed by the user to Method Makia, Päijänteenkatu 9-11, 15140 Lahti, Finland.

If users wish to remove all their information from our register, they should remove their user account from our service. Users can either do this themselves or authorize us to do it on their behalf.

If users find that their statutory rights have been violated, they may file a complaint with the Data Protection Authority in the European Union. The Data Protection Ombudsman acts as the supervising authority in Finland. Contact details of the Data Protection Supervisor are available here.
