How we keep data secure

We seek to use reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect personal data within our organization.

If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please immediately notify us in accordance with the "Contacting Us" section below.

How long we keep data for

We will retain your personal data for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Notice unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law, for example, for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements.

The criteria used to determine our retention periods include (i) the length of time we have an ongoing relationship with you and provide services to you (for example, for as long as you have an account with us); (ii) whether there is a legal obligation to which we are subject (for example, certain laws require us to keep records of transactions for a certain period of time before we can delete them); or (iii) whether retention is advisable in light of our legal position (such as in regard to enforcement of our contractual terms, applicable statutes of limitations, litigation or regulatory investigations).

Where a legal obligation arises or retention is advisable in light of our legal position, in some circumstances, we will retain certain personal data, even after your account has been deleted and/or we no longer provide services to you.

  • To cooperate with law enforcement or public, regulatory and government authorities: If we receive a preservation order or search warrant, related to your account, we will preserve personal data subject to such order or warrant after you delete your account.

  • To comply with legal provisions on tax and accounting: We may retain your personal data, such as Financial Data and Relationship History after you delete your account, for the amount of time appropriate to local limitation periods, as required by tax law and to comply with bookkeeping requirements.

  • To pursue or defend a legal action: We may retain relevant personal data in the event of a legal claim or complaint, including regulatory investigations or legal proceedings about a claim related to your personal data, or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation (whether in respect of our relationship with you or otherwise) for the amount of time appropriate to local limitation periods, after the dispute has been settled or decided by a court or tribunal from which there is no further right of appeal.

Anonymization of data In some circumstances we will anonymize your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

Third Party Services

This Privacy Notice does not address, and we are not responsible for, the privacy, information, or other practices of any third parties, including any third-party operating any website or service to which our products or services link. The inclusion of a link via any of our services does not imply endorsement of the linked site or service by us or by our affiliates.


We do not knowingly collect personal data from individuals under 16 for the purposes outlined in this Privacy Notice.

International Data Transfers

Nokia is a global company that has affiliate (Affiliates | Nokia), business processes, management structures and technical systems that cross national borders. This means your personal data may be stored and processed in countries where we operate, where we have customers, or in which we engage service providers or other authorized parties, and by engaging with us you understand that your personal data will be transferred to countries outside of your country of residence, including the United States, which may have data protection rules that are different from those of your country. In certain circumstances, courts, law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies or security authorities in those other countries may be entitled to access your personal data.

Nokia takes steps to make transfers with appropriate safeguards recognized by applicable laws. Generally international transfers will be safeguarded in accordance with relevant international laws. Where this will involve transferring your personal data outside the UK and/or EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

  • Adequacy Decisions: Some non-EEA countries are recognized under the UK GDPR and/or by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of data protection according to EEA standards (the full list of these countries is available here European Commission Adequacy countries and here, for the UK UK ICO List Adequacy List of Countries)

  • Standard Contractual Clauses and Binding Corporate Rules: For transfers of personal data from the UK and/or EEA to countries outside the UK/and or EEA which are not considered adequate under the UK GDPR and/or by the European Commission, we have put in place appropriate measures to protect your personal data. For example, we use standard contractual clauses adopted under the UK GDPR and/or by the European Commission. You may obtain a copy of these measures by contacting us in accordance with the "Contacting Us" section below.

  • Derogations for specific situations. Transfers may occasionally be made based on a specific derogation, for example, where you have given consent, for reasons of public interest, in connection with the establishment or defense of legal claims, or to protect the vital interests of an individual.
