Wärtsilä undertakes to protect your privacy and personal data. The purpose of this privacy statement (“Privacy Statement”) is to explain how Wärtsilä Corporation and its authorised partners and affiliates ("Wärtsilä") process your personal data related to the Wärtsilä websites and internet service ("Websites"). Wärtsilä processes your personal data in accordance with the Finnish Personal Data Act (523/1999), the Finnish Information Society Code (917/2014) and other applicable personal data legislation.

In the following, we provide information on the kinds of data we collect on these Websites and the purposes for which we use such data. Please read this Privacy Statement before continuing browsing the Websites. If you do not agree with this Privacy Statement, you are expected to leave the Websites, as the processing is based on your consent.

Collected data and sources of information

When visiting Wärtsilä’s Websites, certain technical and other information is automatically sent by your computer to us (e.g. IP address and the type of your browser). We also collect information about your website usage by using cookies. You will find additional information on this subject in the Cookies section of this Privacy Statement.

Access to our Websites is logged for the purpose of security analysis reports and to defend against cyber-attacks. With the exception of the IP address, no personal data is ever collected or used in this connection. IP addresses are analysed only in the event of a cyber-attack. Log data is promptly deleted on a regular basis.

In addition, we collect personal data (e.g., names, addresses, telephone numbers, or e-mail addresses) in connection with the operation of our Websites only when you have voluntarily provided such data to us (e.g., through registration, contact inquiries, subscriptions, etc.).

As a general rule, we use such data only for the purpose for which you divulged the data to us, such as to answer your inquiries, send you subscribed content, or grant you access to certain information or offerings.

Purpose of processing

The purpose of processing your personal data is to

  • ensure an efficient and secure use of our Websites
  • develop the Websites for a better quality and broader scope of services
  • provide customized services and content recognizing your specific needs and interests
  • reply to your inquiries
  • provide marketing information via targeted e-mails or interpersonal communication
  • conduct research and collect statistics (e.g. what sections of our Websites the users visit and how much time they spend on the Websites).

Transfer of your personal data

All Wärtsilä companies might have access to your personal data. Moreover, personal data may be transferred to Wärtsilä’s suppliers, some of which may be located outside of EU/EEA countries.

In situations where personal data is transferred outside of EU/EEA countries, Wärtsilä ensures that sufficient level of data protection is maintained through appropriate safety measures, e.g. EU commission’s model clauses.

How long is your personal data retained?

We only retain personal data for as long as it is necessary for us to render a service you have requested or to which you have given your consent, except where otherwise provided by law (e.g. in connection with pending litigation).

You may at any time contact Wärtsilä to check that the personal data related to you is accurate. Wärtsilä will at your request rectify or erase any incomplete, inaccurate or outdated personal data.

If you feel that Wärtsilä has not complied with the applicable personal data legislation, you have the right to lodge a complaint to a competent supervisory authority.

When the processing of your personal data is based on your consent and carried out by automated means, you may ask Wärtsilä to transmit this data to another data controller.

Should the processing of your personal data be based on your consent, you may at any time revoke your consent by contacting Wärtsilä.
