Data protection and processing of personal data 

In the wellbeing services county of North Savo, we shall process your personal data for various purposes and in different ways, depending on the context. Your personal data may be processed, for example, when providing health care or social welfare services. 

Everyday examples of situations where we process your personal data include an appointment at an outpatient clinic, taking a laboratory sample, or a customer meeting with child welfare services. The processing situations are just as diverse as the personal situations of our patients or customers. 

The purpose of data processing, the data processed and the means used may also vary. Your personal data may be processed for purposes such as carrying out treatment, organising services, doing scientific research, or for other lawful purposes. The data processed may include contact details, test results, customer records and other necessary information. 

On the below web pages you can read more about how we process your personal data. For further details, select the capacity in which you use our services (as a healthcare patient, for example). Under the heading “Other information”, we inform you about other instances where personal data are processed.
