Processing of personal data

What do we mean by personal data?

Personal data is any kind of information that can be linked directly or indirectly to a natural person, for example names, personal identity numbers, postal addresses and email addresses. The EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which replaced the rules of the Personal Data Act on how personal data may be processed, goes into effect on 25 May 2018.

Personal data processed by FI via


When you sign up for a subscription, your email address and details about the publication you have chosen to subscribe to are saved in a register. We do this so we can send you the publications you have specified that you want to receive. The data is saved as long as you remain a subscriber. The data is used solely for this purpose, and we do not pass on this information to third parties. Personal data can be turned over to a government authority, but only when specified by law or in an authority decision.

With regard to press releases and major shareholding notification announcements, the personal data is handled by our supplier, Cision, which has its own procedures, policies and systems to ensure protection of your personal integrity. FI has a separate agreement with Cision regarding the processing of personal data, in accordance with the requirements of GDPR.

You may cancel your subscription at any time by clicking on the link in one of the emails you received. This applies to all subscriptions. Your subscription details are then removed from the register in question.

FI Forum and other seminars

When you register for an FI Forum or seminar, your name, email address and the name of your employer are saved until the FI Forum/seminar is over. We save your name and the company name so we can register your attendance upon arrival at the event. We save your email address in the event we need to contact you with information, for example if we change the location of the event. We erase all personal data after the FI Forum/seminar is over. FI has a separate agreement with Webforum regarding the processing of personal data, in accordance with the requirements of GDPR.

Job applicants

When you apply for a job at FI, we save your name, address, telephone number, gender and other information you include so we can handle your application. This data is deleted after two years. FI has a separate agreement with the supplier of our recruitment system, Reach Mee, regarding the processing of personal data, in accordance with the requirements of GDPR.

Data Protection Officer

FI will appoint a Data Protection Officer, who will be tasked in part with monitoring and controlling how FI complies with the data protection legislation. Until this is person is appointed, we have a Controller of Personal Data in accordance with the Personal Data Act.
You can turn to the Data Protection Officer if you have questions about or viewpoints on FI's processing of personal data.

According to GDPR, you are entitled at no charge to withdraw your consent or request a correction or the erasure of any incorrect data. You may also request information on the personal data concerning you that has been processed at FI regardless of whether this data has been collected via the website or in some other manner.
