Legal basis and purpose of the processing of personal data

The processing of personal data is based on one or more of the following:

  • The legitimate interest of us or other group companies;
  • The contractual relationship, that is, the processing is necessary to implement the employment or training relationship;
  • Processing is necessary to comply with our statutory obligations;
  • The data subject has explicitly consented to the processing of his/her personal data.

The purpose of processing personal data is, for example, to handle employment matters and related employer’s obligations, such as payroll, and to plan and develop our business from a personnel perspective.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data is the employment relationship of the Rainmaker Group and the related employer’s obligations.

Registered information

Basic employee information (name, social security number, address, telephone number, email address), employment information (start and end date, task), training and previous work experience, payroll information (salary group, salary, fringe benefits, employee benefits, sick leave certificates for resolving the salary payment obligation), access control, skill and personal assessments, work performances, annual leave and working time records. Consideration will be given to the processing of sensitive information.

The disclosure of personal information is a prerequisite for us to fulfil our obligations as an employer.

Communications records and its contents, including customer service call records, are retained to verify the content of the communications and to ensure our rights and obligations, as necessary. Call records can also be used for training staff internally to improve the service quality and develop our services. The records will not be used for any other purpose and will not be released outside of Rainmaker.

Regular sources of registry information

As a rule, personal data are collected from the employee himself / herself based on the information and consent given by the employee. The employee personally fills in the personal identification number, address and account number to the electronic system. The employee personally stores the amended data in the electronic system.

Regular disclosures

Information is forwarded to the tax authorities for tax enforcement purposes, to pension and insurance companies for the maintenance of insurance policies taken up by the employer, and to the employment and enforcement authorities to perform these statutory duties. Occupational health care companies to provide statutory occupational health care. For customer companies with the information they need to manage work. For employee unions with employee authorisation. The sensitive nature of the information will be taken into account.

Data transfer outside the EU / EEA

Personal data will not be transferred outside the EU / EEA.

Principles of the registry protection and data retention

The personal data of the employment register shall be accessible to designated persons to the extent necessary for the performance of the personnel management and payroll functions. Users of the employment register information have been given separate IDs by the system administrator, as well as training in data processing. In addition, they are subject to confidentiality obligations. Information on employees’ health is kept separate from other information.

Material in electronic data processing is protected by usernames and passwords. Personal information is collected in a computer system protected by firewalls to prevent unauthorised access. The server with the personal data in question is stored in locked premises, accessible only to a limited number of maintenance personnel. The computers used to access the database are located in locked and monitored spaces. Manual material is stored in a locked location.

Records are kept for 10 years based on the fulfilment of statutory employer obligations.

Customer service call records are retained for 180 days.
