For Dustin to lawfully collect and process your data, we must have a legal basis for each purpose for which the data is processed. The legal bases for our processing purposes are described in this section. Kindly note that several legal bases may be applicable to the same processing activity.
a) Legal obligation
This basis signifies that our processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation that is required of Dustin, for example to record payment details in order to fulfill the legal obligations under applicable Accounting Act.
b) Contractual obligations
This basis represents that our processing is necessary for either the performance of a contract to which you as a customer is party or to take steps prior to entering into a contract at a later stage. If you have a Dustin account, you have entered into a contract with Dustin by accepting the Terms and Conditions for the Dustin Account, with sets the limits for our processing of your personal data to provide, manage and administrate our services associated with the Dustin account, e.g. analysis of your personal aspects to provide personalized offers. When placing an order or making a purchase, we process your data to fulfill obligations in accordance with Dustin's general terms and conditions of sale. It may then be necessary for Dustin to, for example, register your contact details so that we can fulfill our obligation to deliver the goods or services, and request a credit valuation report if you choose invoice as a payment method so we can confirm your creditworthiness.
c) Legitimate interests
This basis express that our processing is based on a so-called balancing of legitimate interests, meaning that the processing is necessary based on our assessment that Dustin has a legitimate interest in processing your personal data which is not overridden by your interest not to have your personal data processed. On this basis, we process your personal data to, for example, avoid improper use of any Dustin account and to avoid, prevent and investigate crime in our business operations. If we believe that a crime or an attempted crime has been committed and we submit a report to the police, Dustin will also continue to process your personal data to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.
This legal ground means that we process your personal data when you have given us your consent to our processing. For example Dustin obtains your explicit consent prior to processing personal data regarding allergies when ordering food to an event. You have the right to withdrawal of your consent. A withdrawal of consent does not interfere with the lawfulness of processing your personal data with your consent prior to the withdrawal.
7.1 Dustin will store your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the data is being processed. So, the retention period depends on the purpose for which the data is being processed. Dustin may also store data for a longer period if it is necessary to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim, e.g. if there is an on-going dispute or a crime has been reported to the police. We perform regular disposals and erase personal data that is no longer necessary to process.
7.2 Dustin stores personal data related with your Dustin account for as long as you are active by interacting with Dustin in various ways. If you have been inactive for a certain period, the Dustin account will be automatically terminated and the personal data we have collected and processed to provide the Dustin account and the services associated with the account will be erased. Read out more about this and how we define inactive customers in the Terms and Conditions for the Dustin Account.
8.1 Dustin may share your data with other companies to provide you with our offers, goods and services. The recipients of your personal data may be either processors to Dustin, i.e. companies that process your data on our behalf and in accordance with our instructions, or independent controllers, i.e. companies that are independently responsible for the processing of your data as they have a direct relation with you as a customer, for example Klarna.
8.2 Dustin may also share your data with governmental authorities if necessary to comply with laws, regulations or governmental decision, or for Dustin to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.
8.3 Depending on how you have interacted with Dustin, e.g. whether you are a Dustin account holder or if you receive marketing communication, Dustin may share your personal data to the following recipients:
8.4 If you place an order with or make a purchase from Dustin, we may also share your personal data to the following recipients to manage your order and purchase based on our contractual obligations towards you as the legal basis:
Dustin will primarily process your data within the EU/EEA. But we may also transfer your personal data to a country outside the EU/EEA if we need to share your data with Dustin's suppliers or business partners that are outside or store personal data in a country outside the EU/EEA. If your personal data is transferred to a country outside the EU/EEA, Dustin will take the necessary measures in order to transfer the personal data legally by ensure that your personal data is processed securely and with an adequate level of protection that is comparable with the protection offered within the EU/EEA, for example by creating an agreement with the recipient that includes the EU Commission's standard contract clauses.

This section describes your rights associated with our processing of your personal data. At your request or on our own initiative we will rectify, anonymize, erase or supplement data that is discovered to be incorrect, incomplete or misleading. If you have any questions about this or wish to exercise a right, please contact us via the contact details at the end of this policy.
a) Right to access your personal data
At Dustin, we hope to be open about how we process your personal data. If you would like an insight into our processing of data about you, you have the right to request information about the processing activity, including a copy of your personal data being processed, what is referred to as a register extract. This includes information about purpose, categories of personal data, categories of recipients of personal data, storage period or criteria for how the storage period is defined, information about where data has been collected from and the existence of automated decision-making, including information about the logic behind and the significance of the processing activity. Please note that when there is a request for access, we may ask for additional data about you to ensure that we are disclosing the data to the correct person and to clarify which data you wish to access. The register extract is free of charge, although in the event of repeated requests Dustin has the right to charge an administrative fee of SEK 100.
b) Right to rectification of your personal data
It is very important to Dustin to collect accurate and updated personal data. If we have collected incorrect personal data from you, you have the right to request that it be rectified. You also have the right to supplement any incomplete personal data, e.g. if we have the correct street address but do not have the house number. At your request, we will rectify the incorrect or incomplete data we are processing about you as quickly as possible.
c) Right to erase your personal data
We respect that the personal data we are processing has been borrowed from you. You therefore have the right to request that Dustin erase your personal data if the data has been processed in an illegal way, must be erased to fulfill a legal obligation to which Dustin is subject, is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it has been processed or when you object to a balancing of legitimate interest performed by Dustin and there is no legitimate interest for Dustin or a third party that carries great weight (see section f) below for information about the right to object). We are, however, not always able to approve your request as there may be reasons that give us the right to process data, e.g. if the personal data is being processed to fulfill a legal obligation as the legal basis, such as a requirement of the applicable Accounting Act, or if the data is necessary to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.
d) Right to data portability
You have the right to a copy of your personal data in a structured format and in certain cases to have the data transferred to another controller. This right, however, only relates to data that you yourself submitted to Dustin and that we are processing with the support of your consent or a contractual obligation towards you as legal basis.
e) Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request that our processing of your personal data be restricted in certain situations, which means that the data may only be processed for certain purposes. You can, for example, request a restriction of incorrect data when you have requested rectification. During the period when Dustin is investigating the correctness of the data, the processing of it will be restricted. In case of restriction of processing, personal data should only be processed, except for storage, when the following applies:
f) Right to object to a certain kind of processing
When Dustin processes your personal data based on a balancing of legitimate interest as legal basis or for direct marketing, you have the right to object to our processing activity. An objection to Dustin's balancing of interest can be submitted when you have personal reasons that relate to the situation. In the event of such an objection, Dustin assesses whether our legitimate reasons for processing that carry more weight than your interest in protecting your privacy. If this is the case, Dustin may continue to process your personal data even though you have objected to the processing activity.
You can submit an objection to direct marketing and analyses performed for direct marketing purposes without having to state a reason. You control this yourself through the settings on My Pages within your Dustin Account, where you select whether you want to receive marketing communication and personalized offers. You are also given the opportunity to decline marketing in every single digital mailing. If you object to direct marketing, we will cease with the processing of your personal data for that purpose as well as all kinds of direct marketing measures such as sending newsletters and special offers. If you only decline personalized offers, marketing communication to you will be general, as we find it difficult to assess which kind of marketing is relevant for you if we are unable to analyze your personal characteristics. Find out more about how we adapt our special offers and communication according to your personal characteristics and how you can object to such processing under the Terms and Conditions for the Dustin Account.
If you believe that we are processing your personal data in an incorrect way, you are welcome to contact us. Our contact details can be found at the end of this policy. You also have the right to submit any complaints regarding the processing of your personal data to Tietosuojavaltuutetun Toimisto, which is the supervisory authority responsible for the processing of personal data in Finland.
You should always feel safe when you provide us with your personal data. Therefore, Dustin has taken appropriate technical and organizational security measures in order to protect your personal data against unlawful or accidental disclosure, use, access, destruction, alteration or harm to your personal data. For example, all customer data is stored in a database protected by firewall and access control so only employees within the Dustin Group who need access to your personal data to perform specific tasks have such access.
