Privacy notice

Who collects and processes data

Data is collected and processed by Norminet Oy (VAT FI29440448).

What data do we collect

We collect information that the user enters into the service, such as the user's username, email address, filled forms, messages, publications, attitude information, texts and images (User Content). We also automatically collect information: IP address, number of requests, amount of transferred data, and the page address (URL). Session data and encryption data are stored in cookies or in storage comparable to them on the user's device. We do not store user-associated search history.

If the user creates a user account through third-party authentication, such as by using their Google account, we also receive the user's name and email address from this third party.

How we process the data

We enable the smooth operation of the service with the collected data. Search terms are processed to return results. The e-mail address can be used for logging in, resetting the password, contacting and reporting service events. Automatically collected data is used to identify and prevent intentional interference with the service and to detect and fix errors.

The attitude data entered by the user is combined with attitude data entered by other users in an algorithm that calculates reputations for the items in question. Reputations affect the search results of users. Attitude data can also be used in a search where the user is provided with results of other users who have attitudes similar to the searching user.

How we share the data

Due to the nature of the service, some of the collected data is available to other users through the normal use of the service, such as the information that the user has entered in his profile. We cannot control how other users store or share the information they receive through the service. User data is not separately shared with a third party, unless it is specifically mentioned or the law requires it.

Attitudes set by the user to be public can be shown to other users of the service. User's profile can be displayed along with his/her public attitude.

The user's non-public attitudes can be combined with the attitudes of other users and shown to other users as an anonymized reputation.

How long we store the data

The User Content available in the service can remain until the user separately deletes individual information or deletes his entire user account, in which case all available User Content will be deleted. Data related to the user can remain in backups for a maximum of one month after deletion. The session and encryption data is removed from standard browsers when the user logs out of their user account.

How to check, update or delete your data

First, check the settings and account pages to see if the function you are looking for is available there. If not, you can contact the email address to check, update or delete the collected data. We strive to provide granular control over all your data. You can delete the user account on the settings page.
