Furthermore, when you use any Siili IT tools and applications, we may collect certain personal data concerning you, such as the internet protocol (IP) address, the source of visit and the type of your web browser even prior to explicitly requesting any of your Subcontractor Data described above.

We do not generally collect or process any Subcontractor Data belonging to special categories, such as personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership or data concerning health or sex life. If there would be a need to collect this type of personal data, we would ask your explicit consent to processing such data.

Disclosures and Transfers

We will not disclose your Subcontractor Data except as provided in this section or when you have given your consent.

We do not generally disclose any Subcontractor Data to be independently used by other data controllers outside Siili unless required by mandatory law (such as the authorities). As an exception, personal data related to Siili Academy training (i.a. participation and course information) can be disclosed to our trusted business partners for provisioning training certifications and maintaining information on them. Also customer assignments, in which you participate or may participate as our subcontractor, may require disclosures to our customers (such as your CV information).

We may transfer your Subcontractor Data to/from other Siili Group companies or to/from third parties (e.g. subcontractors) who process Subcontractor Data on behalf of us for the purposes described in this Statement. In this way, we do not release the Subcontractor Data from our effective control.

If Subcontractor Data is transferred to/from external data processors (subcontractors or vendors including other companies belonging to Siili) to be processed on behalf of Siili, appropriate data processing agreements, as required by the applicable laws, are executed to secure lawful and appropriate processing of Subcontractor Data.

As we operate internationally, due to necessary technical and practical requirements, your Subcontractor Data may be processed by other Siili companies or subcontractors located outside the European Union or European Economic Area (incl. Switzerland). Hence, countries to which your Subcontractor Data may be sent to or accessed from may have a data protection standard differing from the country in which we are located. In all such situations involving such international transfers of Subcontractor Data, the processing of Subcontractor Data shall be in accordance with applicable legislations (e.g. justified by EU Commission standard contractual clauses and supplementary measures, if necessary) and our data processing policies and instructions.

We may also need to share your Subcontractor Data with a purchaser or potential purchaser of our business. Such sharing does not occur regularly, but should it be necessary, we will share only smallest possible amount of your Subcontractor Data and always in the limits of applicable legislation.

We may provide aggregate statistics about our subcontractor companies and related persons to reputable third parties, but these statistics are anonymized and will not include your Subcontractor Data.


Subcontractor Data is protected by organisational and technical measures against accidental and/or unlawful access, alteration, and destruction or other processing including unauthorized disclosure and transfer of Subcontractor Data.

Such measures include (without limitation) proper firewall arrangements, malware detection, appropriate encryption of telecommunication and messages as well as use of secure and monitored equipment and server rooms. Data security is of special concern when third parties (e.g. data processing subcontractors) providing and implementing IT systems and services are retained.

Data security requirements are duly observed in IT system access management and monitoring of access to IT systems. Personnel processing Subcontractor Data as part of their tasks is trained and properly instructed in data protection and data security matters.
