4. Purpose of processing personal data and the lawful basis for processing

The Data Controller’s switchboard routes calls that are made or diverted back to the switchboard to staff at Tampere Universities. 

Calls made or diverted back to the switchboard will be recorded to help develop and maintain the quality of switchboard services and to detect, prevent and investigate misuse and technical problems. The recording will begin only after a message informing the caller that the call will be recorded has been played.

The switchboard provides services to the customers of Tampere Universities and therefore influences the experiences of the customers of Tampere University of Applied Sciences and Tampere University. Switchboard services are assessed and developed in response to customer feedback. To process feedback pertaining to a specific call, we will utilise the recording of that call. The recording allows us to connect the feedback to the correct call, address issues with service delivery and develop our switchboard services.

The purpose of call recording is to enable the processing of feedback. We may review a call recording later if feedback is provided on our switchboard services and the processing of this feedback must be carried out in cooperation with the switchboard operator who answered the call. The lawful basis for processing personal data is the legitimate interests of the Data Controller (the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 Article 6.1(f).
