Lingu House Oy’s client register

According to EU’s GDPR, the legal justification for this site’s data processing is being a customer, a member in the weekly newsletter email list, the approval or contract with the registered person, or the protection of the owner of the register.

The register is used to manage, update and improve the personal data of customers, and for marketing or direct marketing of products and services (also before a person is a paid customer), documentation of past customers (e.g. their purchases for accounting purposes), statistics and analytics, affiliate marketing, and marketing/sales of digital products/services, and including Google, Facebook or other social media services and email marketing solutions.

The management of personal data is Lingu House Oy’s legal necessity to hold a customer/member register and in some cases it is necessary for fulfilling proper service/products based on contracts.

4. Profiling

As a part of personal data management Lingu House Oy can use automatic profiling and thus the registered person can get more focused marketing messages and voluntary benefits.

For example, if we market a product/service to a customer, we can do it by using the customer’s registered data. For example, when you join the email list of the newsletter recipients, you may also sometimes receive good tips about the coming web courses and other products and services of (R)evolution for Love and/or performed or marketed by Lingu House Oy. You have always to possibility to unsubscribe the newsletters and similar posts.

Lingu House Oy’s website, social media channels or emails may sometimes have links to third parties. These sites are not managed by Lingu House Oy, so each person shall familiarize themselves and approve separately those sites’ own data clauses. Some links may be affiliate links: when a customer buys a product/service through that link, Lingu House Oy may get a commission. This doesn’t cause extra costs for the customers. Lingu House Oy recommends only trustworthy, good products or services.
