Who is responsible for your personal data

Personal data in Xintela's research

For those who have personal data registered with Xintela for research purposes.

When personal data is to be processed, it is required that the data subject has given his or her consent to the processing or that the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.

According to the general rule, it is prohibited to process sensitive personal data, such as those revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious beliefs and data relating to health or sex life. But there are exceptions in the law.

An exception is if the data subject has given his or her explicit consent. Another exception is for research purposes if the processing has been approved in accordance with the Act on the Ethical Review of Research Involving Humans (The Ethical Review Act). In addition, sensitive personal data may be processed for statistical purposes, without the data subject's consent, if the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest and if the public interest in the research in question clearly outweighs the risk of undue invasion of the data subject's personal integrity. If the treatment has been approved by an ethical review board, these conditions are considered to be met. It is not permitted to collect sensitive personal data in a separate database for research or statistical purposes that are not determined at the time of collection.

Ethical review

All research involving the processing of sensitive personal data or information about violations of the law must be ethically reviewed. The ethical review is carried out by an ethical review board with representatives both for the public and for the research, and it includes the research project itself and the processing of personal data in accordance with the Personal Data Act. The starting points for the examination are set out in the Ethical Review Act, where the review of research ethics must be a sufficient guarantee that sensitive personal data is processed for research only in the exceptional cases where a certain intrusion into personal integrity is really justified.

The Ethical Review Board does not need to apply the balancing standard that normally exists, i.e. that the public interest must clearly outweigh the risk of intrusion into individuals' personal integrity that the processing may entail. However, how the balancing standard is normally applied can guide the boards' assessment.
