Data protection

Data protection is important to us, and we take it very seriously. We are committed to ensuring that the data of our students, personnel and other stakeholders is processed lawfully and professionally at Turku University of Applied Sciences (Turku UAS).

We have a designated data protection officer (DPO) at Turku University of Applied Sciences. The DPO monitors that the processing of personal data is carried out lawfully and contributes to Turku UAS in fulfilling its obligations related to data protection. Turku UAS students, personnel and other parties may contact the DPO in all matters related to processing of their personal data.

If you have any concerns related to data protection, please contact the DPO at tietosuoja@turkuamk.fi

Emails sent to the DPO email address will be handled by the DPO together with a data protection specialist who will also act as a deputy DPO, when needed. If both of the above-mentioned parties are unavailable for handling an email message, the message will be automatically forwarded within the organization. This way, we can ensure that matters related to data protection are handled as soon as possible, also during absences.

If you do not feel comfortable sending data via email, please contact us first, so we can agree on a suitable delivery method separately.
