Customer messages may be sent electronically or by mail. They do not contain marketing.
marketing messages and calls
In addition to these customer messages, we may send messages containing marketing, either electronically or by mail. Marketing messages provide you with a more extensive view of the products, services and benefits from Telia companies (hereinafter also referred to as “Telia”) and Telia’s partners.
Telia customer benefits are primarily communicated via electronic channels.
Electronic direct marketing may be sent if you have consented to that (marketing consent). Without a marketing consent, you may only receive messages pertaining to services you have already obtained. If you forbid electronic marketing, we will not send you any electronic messages containing marketing. You may set an electronic marketing ban in self-service or via our customer care.
Marketing permissions apply to all Telia group companies and to all of your products and services, such as mobile subscriptions, Internet connections, TV services and other value-added services, and to the services of our partners.
We may send you direct marketing messages by mail without a specific permission. If you want to forbid direct marketing by mail, you can activate a direct marketing ban in self-service or via our customer care.
We may also call you to inform you about benefits and offers. If you want to forbid marketing calls, you can activate a direct marketing ban in self-service or via our customer care. We may also call you to inform you about our offers if you have left us a call request regarding that.

Targeting of marketing messages
We want to ensure that you feel the communication you receive from us is relevant. To this end, we may collect information from our customers regarding their areas of interest.
We can also target marketing messages we send you by means of your customer data. When you are our customer, use our services or visit our website, we get information on you that enables us to better offer you topical and relevant offers and messages to meet your needs. If you do not wish for us to tailor the messages to better suit you, you can forbid the personalisation of marketing messages in self-service or via our customer care.
If you wish, you can also give your consent to targeting marketing messages on the basis of traffic and location data generated in connection with your use of our products and services.
Traffic data include data on calls and text messages; data on the parties engaged in the communication, the date, time and duration of the connection, the IP address and location data of the subscription and data on the terminal device. Traffic data enable us to give you a tip on a subscription better suited to your needs or on new accessories for your terminal device.
Location data, in turn, indicate the geographic location of your subscription or terminal device, and are used to offer value-added services such as map, navigation or locally targeted advertising services. The accuracy of location data depends on factors such as the features of the value-added service offered and, with regard to mobile phones, the number of base stations in the area in question. Location data are used, for example, when you order information on the location the nearest pharmacy or restaurant to be sent to your phone. Similarly, you may also receive a locally targeted advertisement based on the fact that you are currently in the area in question.
CUSTOMER SURVEYS AND RESEARCH

To this end, we survey our customers’ opinions on a variety of topics ranging from service development to the performance of customer service or, for example, the most wanted customer benefits. If, however, you do not wish for us to contact you regarding these surveys, you can forbid it by activating a direct marketing ban in self-service or via our customer care. In this case, we will not contact you for research purposes through any channel (e-mail, text message, calls).
Targeted and personalized advertising in social media services
We can also target and personalise advertising interesting to you in social media channels based, for example, on the personal data we process when providing you with a service pursuant to an agreement or when you use our services. If you want to forbid targeted advertising, you can activate a direct marketing ban in self-service or via our customer care.
