Purpose of processing personal data

Registry information is used in TAMK's open Moodle-based DIGMA learning environment. Personal information is used to manage the customer relationship: to identify users (authentication) and to authenticate users' access rights (authorization). The information

For users registered directly in the environment, their first
name, last name, username, e-mail address, place and country of residence are stored. Depending on the login method, password-related information can also be stored in the system. Those who log in with HAKA automatically save their user ID (EPPN),
name information, e-mail address, home organization, and home organization type.

If desired, the user can store other contact information in the system (telephone number, address, website address, identifiers of various messaging services).
