4. Description of data file

Suomisport is a sports and exercise service provided jointly by the Finnish Olympic Committee and the Finnish sports community. Each user must create a personal user account, i.e. Sport account, in the Suomisport service. The Sport account is intended for users to access the service and manage their information in accordance with the My Data principle.


Through their Sport account, a data subject can purchase a variety of sports and exercise services available in the service, such as competition licences, insurance policies, club memberships, club products and services, and event registrations. Through the Sport account, which is available online and as a mobile application, users can manage their own daily sporting activities and those of their dependants.


When a person accesses the various services encompassed by Suomisport, the controllers (i.e. service providers, such as the sports federation or a club) or those processing the personal data contained by them gain the right to use the data subject’s information for the lawful purposes indicated to each data subject upon service use and for a limited period only. The purpose of use is described in the service providers’ accounts regarding the processing of personal data.


The following personal information is collected for the purposes of the data subject’s own service management:
language, name, personal identity code, citizenship, Suomisport ID, telephone number, e-mail address, address and country
If a data subject wishes to make purchases for a dependant within the Suomisport service, Suomisport will collect the corresponding information for the dependant in question.

Upon the creation of an account, the personal identity code is used for identification only, based on which each user is provided with a personal Sport ID and Sport account. Collecting the personal identity code for the service is necessary and lawful.

The personal identity codes requested in the context of creating a Sport account are not forwarded or processed by the Suomisport service.

The personal identity codes are only displayed to the administrator of the Suomisport service in the context of error correction.

The processors of personal data gain access to the data subjects’ details for a limited period only and for the specific lawful purpose that is indicated to each data subject upon accessing the service. Each processor of personal data is bound by terms of use regarding the use and data protection of the Suomisport service. All service providers are obliged to describe the personal data processing measures as regards their own data file.

The administrator of the Suomisport service will process personal data as necessary in the context of data file maintenance and error resolution.
