What data does Varma collect?
We collect the personal data of policyholders, i.e. employers and self-employed persons, the insured and pension applicants and recipients, and from official registers that Varma is legally entitled to use. We may also collect your personal information for different purposes based on your consent. You have the right to cancel your consent at any time. The cancellation of consent does not affect the legality of consent-based processing that took place prior to the consent being cancelled.
As part of its investment operations, Varma is a developer of rental flats and grants customer credit. Personal data is gathered from persons applying for flats and from lessees in connection with rental activities. In addition to the information provided by the applicants for flats and credit themselves, Varma verifies their credit information. Personal data on private customers and guarantors is compiled in the loan register.
We gather personal data expressly for the above-mentioned purposes and only to the extent that is necessary. We try to ensure that the data is accurate, complete and up-to-date.
The personal identity code is used as an identifier in Varma’s pension insurance operations, the renting of flats and granting of credit. When making pension decisions and selecting lessees on social grounds, we may also deal with sensitive data such as data concerning a person’s state of health.
