2. Processing of personal data

Personal data is processed in various ways. Depending on the type of data, this data can be consulted by us or by third parties (see point 3).

We use data minimization and try to minimize the retention period of data.

2.1 General website visit

Data about visiting the website is collected and processed anonymously to improve the website. This data includes technical data of the browser, duration of the visit and pages visited.

If one makes use of our contact form or joins our purpose, the data will be saved on the server as well as in the mailbox. The retention period for communication is to be consulted under 2.2.

2.2 General communication

General data of communication like emails are saved for 5 years to enable a smooth communication.

Subscribers that join the cause can email us to sign off the list. The list only contains their email address with which they signed up and the name if they chose to enter it.

In the future, it might be interesting to have a mailing list to keep people updated who have joined the cause. This is not that case yet. This future mailing list would be set up via Mailchimp. Users that have joined the cause without explicit consent to be added to this list will be requested to consent to it in the first email. Subscribers can always unsubscribe via a link in the mailing. A double opt-in will be used to ensure consent when signing up to the mailing list. Data are erased after 2 years of inactivity. After unsubscribing, the email address will be kept except when one asks to remove it explicitly.

3. Third parties and partners

Data is being shared with carefully selected partners to learn about the activity on the site. An overview of the partners that have access to (parts of) the collected data is found in the table below.
