If you leave a comment on our site, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address, and website in cookies. This feature adds convenience because the form does not need to be filled out again each time you add a comment. Cookie information is deleted from the browser after one year. You can also request the removal of cookie information electronically by sending an email to santeri(a)santerikarki.fi.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser window.

Embedded Content from Other Websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles, etc.). Opening embedded content imported from other sites is comparable to the visitor visiting a third-party site themselves.

These sites may collect information about you, use cookies, embed third-party tracking cookies, and monitor your interaction with embedded content, including tracking interaction if you are logged in as a user on the site.

How Long We Retain Your Data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is done so that we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

We retain the information of registered users (if any) in user profile data. All users have the option to view, edit, and delete their own personal information at any time. Only the username cannot be changed. Website administrators can see and edit user profile information.

Information may be kept for a longer period if your actions are considered to violate Finnish law, and if it is necessary to file a criminal report about the activity. By commenting on the site, you agree to comply with Finnish law.

Your Rights to Your Data

If you have a user account on this site or have left comments, you can request an exported file of your personal data, including all personal data you have provided to us. You can also request the deletion of your personal data. The right to delete your own data does not apply to personal data that we need to retain for administrative, legal, or security reasons.

Where Your Data Is Sent

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
