We collect customers’ personal information so that we can inform about DocPoint-elokuvatapahtumat association’s activities linked to DocPoint – Helsinki International Film Festival, DocPoint FINEST Market, DocPoint IMPACT and DOKKINO – nationwide documentary film screening tour for children and youth.

The basis for processing personal data is a contract based on customer relationship and consent of the person.

DocPoint-elokuvatapahtumat association’s customer register contains information necessary for communication and operation: customer’s name, email address, phone number, and any other information collected with the consent of the person.

6. Where do we get the information from 

The data in the customer register is provided by the customers themselves when buying tickets to the DocPoint’s events or festival, through email contact or other customer relationships. The data is stored in the customer register for five years after the last entry, unless the customer themselves declares that they want their data removed from the customer register.

7. To whom do we transfer data

As a rule, the data in the customer register is not disclosed to third parties. Information may be disclosed to the authorities if required by law or regulations, for example for clarifying malpractices or infectious diseases monitoring.

Data may be transferred for research purposes to third parties. In these cases, DocPoint has an agreement with research providers. This agreement takes into account the requirements set by law and the EU General Data Protection Regulation. Research organisations are not allowed to use the data for their own purposes or to pass it on. 

8. Do we transfer data outside the EU or the EEA? 

We do not transfer data outside the EU or the EEA.

The 2022 DocPoint – Helsinki Documentary Film Festival uses a USA-based Eventive online platform for the festival. This is also used for the customers ‘ticket purchases. When purchasing a ticket through the system, a customer authorises the collection of their data into Eventive’s system.

The registry is protected both with passwords and firewalls. Only DocPoint employees and limited service providers have access to the DocPoint-elokuvatapahtumat association’s customer registry. The service has a contractual relationship with the registrar. Employees, who need the data in their work, are trained to use the information properly. 

We store customer data for five years after the last time they’ve participated in an event, unless the customer informs us that they no longer wish to be contacted regarding the activities of the DocPoint-elokuvatapahtumat association.
