Your privacy is important to us

Thank you for your interest in My Salmiakki Life and our services. We want you to feel comfortable visiting our site regarding your privacy. Data protection is a very important concern. The observance of the relevant data protection legislation such as the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a matter of course.

We want you to know about the information we collect online, why we collect it and how we process it. We have implemented technical and organizational measures to ensure that data protection regulations are observed both by us and where data is passed on to external service providers.

Personal data

Personal data means any information relating to the personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person (“data subject”). This includes details such as your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address. You are not required to disclose personal data in order to use our website. However, in certain cases, we need your name, email address and other details so that we can provide you with the requested services.

The same also applies, for example, if we are sending you information or answering individual questions. In such cases, we will specifically draw your attention to the processing of the data. In addition, we will only store and process data that has been supplied to us voluntarily or automatically.

Where you make use of our services, we will normally collect only the data we need to provide the service concerned. If we request further data from you, the information is voluntarily. We will process personal data solely in order to provide the requested service and to safeguard our own legitimate business interests.


My Salmiakki Life is the operator of this website in accordance with the existing data protection regulations; under the relevant provisions of the GDPR, we are the controller responsible for processing your personal data. You can find our contact information here: https://www.mysalmiakkilife.fi/contact/

Information on data collection, use, storage and erasure

My Salmiakki Life collects data on the basis of the information you provide to us. My Salmiakki Life regularly needs data about you for publishing your stories or subscribing the newletter. Any personal data collected, for example, your names and emails are provided on a voluntary basis. These data are processed pursuant to Art. 6(1) b GDPR to facilitate the performance of a contract, to enable us to take steps prior to entering into a contract or, to the extent permissible and desirable (assuming that consent has been given pursuant to Art. 6(1) a GDPR), for our own marketing purposes; we will not disclose them to anyone else other than for the aforementioned purposes without your express consent. Authorized third parties with whom data are shared might be affiliated companies, for example, or service providers. The provision of personal data by you is not required by law. Its provision is only contractually required if you yourself become a contracting party; however, such data are regularly needed for the performance of business operations and for contract execution purposes, to enable us to communicate with you in the framework of contract initiation or contract performance and to ensure smooth processing.

We will only store your data for as long as you require information on our products and services. The data which are stored about you (usually your name and email address) will be erased as soon as the purpose for which they have been stored no longer applies and provided its erasure does not conflict with any statutory tax, archiving or other obligations. If such legal obligations exist, the data will be erased after the retention periods have expired.

My Salmiakki Life would like to point out that no data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail), and especially unencrypted transmissions, can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure and vulnerabilities can never be ruled out entirely. While we make every effort to protect your data, complete protection against access by third parties is not possible.

Information, rectification, erasure, restriction of processing, data portability and withdrawal of consent

You have the right to request information regarding personal data stored by us about you at any time and at no cost, in particular about the origin and recipients of your data as well as the purpose for which it has been processed. In addition, you also have the right to demand the rectification, erasure, restriction of processing and portability of such data to the extent permitted by law. If you have given us your consent to collect and store data about you, you have the right to withdraw your consent to the storage of such data at any time. The withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of collection and storage based on consent before its withdrawal. You can unsubscribe from our newsletter at any point.
