The original Resource consists of audio recordings of speech, technical metadata regarding the recording process, and answers that were voluntarily given by the speech donors to a set of non-mandatory background questions. Each piece of recorded audio may also be supplemented with a transcript of the speech content and other descriptions and mark-up that may be created manually or automatically.
The recordings included in the Resource have not been edited with respect to their original content, although the technical format of the audio files may vary due to practical reasons. In some cases, the identity of the speaker may become evident either directly or indirectly, for instance due to their speaking voice or due to some of the content mentioned in the recording. However, the Resource may not be used for identifying speakers.
The technical metadata includes the following types of information:
The technical metadata have been collected and included in the Resource on a coarse level. It is not possible to reveal the identity of the speech donor or the user of the device on the basis of the technical information.
The background details provided by the speech donors include the following:
It is not possible to verify the correctness of the background information mentioned above. The speech donors may have chosen to skip background questions or to submit false information. The free text answers could be provided at the desired level of detail. In case speech was donated several times via the same device, the donor may have given several different answers to the same background questions.
The data subjects are volunteers who participated in the Donate Speech campaign (Lahjoita puhetta) by donating their speech and the background details of their choice.
In these data protection terms and conditions, End-User means the party acting as the Controller for the Resource received, in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679. Depending on the case and the purpose of Resource use, End-User may therefore mean the Language Bank user’s employer or organisation (e.g., a university, university of applied sciences or other research organisation) or the service user personally.
The End-User understands that when receiving the Resources, it becomes a controller, as referred to in the data protection legislation. The End-User must ensure that it complies with the applicable data protection legislation when processing personal data.
The End-User shall notify the Language Bank without delay if it identifies or suspect the presence of the following content in the Resource:
The notification made by the End-User shall include information that enables the Language Bank to identify the relevant recording.
The Language Bank may produce new versions of the Resource to ensure, for example, that the rights of data subjects in accordance with Data Protection Legislation are fulfilled and that there is no unlawful content in the Resource. When the Language Bank produces a new version of the Resource and notifies the contact person of the End-User by email, the End-User shall, without delay, delete the old version of the Resource and replace it with the new version. The End-User must submit a functional and valid email address to the Language Bank to which notifications of updates to the Resource are to be sent.
