    The privacy statement, on the other hand, defines what personal data we collect and how we use this data.

    Why is personal data collected?

    The Live Foundation offers a wide range of services. The personal data we collect depends on the services you use, subscribe to or purchase. The purpose of use determines what kind of information about the user is collected in any situation.

    The reasons for collecting personal data can be, for example:

    • Compliance with legal obligations: We process personal data for the performance of our legal obligations, such as the provision of vocational training or for accounting purposes.
    • Providing services: We collect and/or process personal data in order to offer and provide Services. The providing of Services requires that we process personal data for the processing and delivery of orders, invoicing or customer service.

    What kind of data is collected about me?

    We collect and process, among other things, the following types of personal data:

    • personal data related to the implementation of vocational training
    • personal data related to the implementation of social and health services
    • personal data related to the employment relationship
    • personal data related to the customer relationship, such as information about orders and billing and payment information

    Who processes my personal data or is it passed on?

    The Live Foundation may process personal data in accordance with the current Personal Data Act. This information may only be processed by Live employees for whom it is necessary for their duties. We may also outsource the processing of personal data to a third party, in which case we guarantee through contractual procedures that personal data will be processed in accordance with the Personal Data Act. These third parties may not use the personal data for any purpose other than to provide the service agreed on with us.

    The Live Foundation is obliged to disclose personal data in accordance with the requirements set out by authorities and legal requirements. We will not transfer data outside the EU or the EEA. 

    How do we safeguard personal data?

    We use the necessary technical and organisational security measures to protect personal data. Such means include, but are not limited to, the use of firewalls, limited access rights and control of their use, proper access management, instruction of personnel involved in the processing of personal data, and the careful selection of contract partners using personal data. More information about the Foundation's information security policy.
