Last updated: 27th May 2018

Joukon Voima requires some personal information from you as a customer in order for us to provide our services to you, to comply with legal requirements, and to improve our services with help of third-party data processors. In this Privacy policy we tell you what personal information we collect from you when you browse our website, when you use our services and when you are otherwise in contact with us.

What kind of personal information we collect and why we collect it

Crowdfunder information

  • Your investments and their timestamps
  • Crowdfunding campaigns you have participated in

We collect this information in order to report about the progress of ongoing campaigns, and to develop our campaigns and marketing communication regarding our campaigns.

Information from cookies and similar technologies

Cookies are small text files that web servers place on your device to help websites and apps recognize you, e.g. so that you would not have to provide your login credentials every time you request information from or send information to our web server.

How your personal information is shared with third parties

We share your personal information with third party data processors in the following cases:

Internal communication

We use several third-party team work platforms to communicate internally. As part of this communication, we may transfer your personal information: for example we may internally send lists that contain the names of crowdfunders of a specific campaign and their investment sum. In all these platforms, your personal information is send in encrypted form, so an outsider is not able to read your personal information while it is in transit. It is technically possible for these platform providers to read your personal information before and after transmitting it.

Other cases

We may share your personal information in the following cases:

  • If we are required by law, court order, or other legal process, to share the information
  • If a government authority requests the information, and we think it would be appropriate to share the information
  • To provide information about our service and its users to potential business partners in pseudonymized or aggregated form (you cannot be identified using information that is pseudonymized or aggregated)

In an emergency, we may use and share your personal information to protect your own safety or the safety of the public.

How we store your personal information


Joukon Voima is committed to protecting your personal information. We use the best business practices to minimize the risk of your personal information getting compromised. However, it is impossible to make any system 100% secure, and there is always a small possibility of unauthorized access to your personal information. In the event of such data breach, we will notify those affected without delay. We will then act swiftly with our partners to minimize the damage caused to you.


Your personal information is stored as long as needed to fulfill the purposes explained in this privacy policy. This time can be extended if required or permitted by law. When we no longer require your personal information, your personal information is either deleted or anonymized. If, for some reason, this is not possible, your personal information is isolated instead until it can be deleted. Isolation means that your personal information is categorized as “cannot be used”, even if it exists. This may be the case for example if your personal information is stored in a backup archive.
