This privacy statement describes how Nova Talent Oy ("Nova Talent or the "controller") processes personal data. The privacy statement applies to our website, marketing and customer relationship management, as well as the processing of personal data related to the products and services we offer.

We comply with applicable data protection legislation in all processing of personal data. Data protection legislation refers to valid data protection legislation, such as the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (2016/679) and the Finnish Data Protection Act (December 5, 2018/1050). The concepts related to data protection, which are not defined in this data protection statement, are interpreted in accordance with the data protection legislation.

Our services and website may also contain links to external websites and services operated by other organizations. This Privacy Statement is not suitable for their use, so we recommend that you read the privacy statements that apply to them separately.

"Personal data" means all data concerning natural persons ("data subject") from which the person can be directly or indirectly identified, as defined in more detail in the data protection regulation.

Purposes of use (and legal grounds in parentheses) for processing personal data are:

• customer service and communication and customer satisfaction surveys (legitimate interest, consent, contractual relationship)

• invoicing and debt collection (legitimate interest)

• marketing, including market research, other marketing promotion and analyses, as well as producing statistics and measuring the effectiveness of marketing (legitimate interest)

When we process personal data based on a legitimate interest, we evaluate the benefits and possible harms of the processing for the data subject and have assessed that the rights and interests of the data subjects do not override the legitimate interest. Upon request, we provide more information about the processing of personal data based on a legitimate interest.

If we process personal data to comply with the requirements of legislation or to fulfill certain of our reporting obligations, the legal basis for the processing is primarily to comply with a statutory obligation.

Information marked with an asterisk (*) is generally processed in the role of a processor.

We collect personal data directly from the data subject, for example in connection with a transaction, or when the data subject buys or orders our products or services either himself or on behalf of the organization he represents, when the data subject visits our website or our other electronic services, subscribes to our newsletter, responds to a customer satisfaction survey or otherwise communicates with us.

When Nova Talent processes the trainees' personal data to produce the trainee placement service, it processes the trainees' personal data on behalf of the sending or receiving organization and does not act as an independent data controller in these respects. When Nova Talent acts as a processor on behalf of another data controller, the data protection statement and policies of that data controller apply to the processing of personal data.


We keep personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfill the purposes defined in the data protection statement and always for the time required by legislation (for example, responsibilities and obligations related to accounting obligations or reporting obligations), or for the purpose of settling a lawsuit or similar disagreement situation. We keep the personal data of job seekers and participants in our courses for 24 months from the last active contact. After the end of the purpose of use, the personal data will be deleted or made anonymous within a reasonable time.

Upon request, we will provide more information about personal data storage practices.


Various service providers and other third parties may also be used in the processing of personal data, such as providers of technical solutions or server space or accounting and financial administration service providers. We take care of the agreements required by data protection legislation with the entities we use in processing personal data.

Personal data can be handed over to third parties in situations required by legislation or authorities, or to investigate abuses, and to ensure security. In addition, personal data may have to be disclosed in connection with legal proceedings or similar legal procedures.

If the controller is involved in a merger, business transaction or other business arrangement, personal data may be disclosed to the parties to the arrangement or to parties assisting in the arrangement.

Upon request, we provide additional information about recipients of personal data.


When data is transferred outside the European Union or the European Economic Area, the company ensures an adequate level of personal data protection, for example by agreeing on matters related to the processing of personal data as required by data protection legislation, such as using standard contract clauses approved by the European Commission. Information is transferred to the following recipients:

Google Cloud and Google Analytics / Google LLC

Upon request, we will provide additional information regarding the transfer of personal data and the protection mechanisms used.


Data security and the protection of personal data is of the utmost importance to us. We use appropriate technical and organizational safeguards to protect personal data. We also ensure the fault tolerance of our systems and data recovery possibilities. The right of access to personal data is limited only to separately authorized entities. Entities processing personal data have a duty of confidentiality regarding matters related to the processing of personal data.
