Privacy policy and accessibility

This page describes our privacy practices and the accessibility of the site.

Privacy policy

The Student Union of Tampere University (TREY) has committed to protecting its members’ privacy, in accordance with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation and other applicable legislation. TREY’s right to process its members’ personal data is based on the statutory duty of the register’s controller (Universities Act 2009/558, section 46). In addition, TREY processes personal data in order to provide various services. Authorisation to process personal data is based on the consent given by a data subject (EU’s General Data Protection Regulation, Article 6, paragraph 1, point a).

It is more specifically explained in TREY’s Privacy Policies, how, where and on what grounds the personal data are processed. The data subject has the right to check from the controller, what information has been collected of them. The data subject may also demand the controller to restrict the processing of the data subject’s personal data, or claim for rectification or erasure of the personal data. Processing period of the forms concerning data protection is one month from the day the form has been received or it has arrived.

The contact forms related to TREY’s general data protection statement, the data subject’s rights and various task-specific data protection statements can be found on the Privacy page of TREY’s website.
