Personal data that are connected and processed for the same purposes constitute a personal data file. The privacy statement of a personal data file describes the personal data processed in connection with the data file, the purposes of their use and their protection, etc. This section contains the privacy statements for the key patient and customer registers of Pihlajalinna Group.
