Privacy regulations

Dutch Foundation for the International Campaign for Tibet

The Dutch Foundation for the International Campaign for Tibet (hereinafter referred to as NSICT) processes data, including personal data, in accordance with applicable legislation. Your privacy is very important to us and we handle your personal data with great care. You can request to see your data or have it changed or deleted at any time by contacting our secretariat during office hours at telephone number 020-3308265 or by sending an e-mail to icteurope@savetibet.nl. You can also contact this number or email address if you no longer wish to be kept informed of our activities. It is possible to unsubscribe through the unsubscribe link at the bottom of every email. The following document is a description of exactly what you can expect from us and which rules we adhere to.

Scope

These privacy regulations apply to the processing of personal information (hereinafter referred to as personal data) provided by donors, employees, relations, participants and volunteers and data obtained from visits to and use of NSICT’s websites.
As a volunteer, donor or participant in our campaigns, you accept these privacy regulations and give NSICT permission to collect, save and process your information in the ways described in this document.

Data processing

NSICT processes personal data for its donor records, fund-raising programmes and in order to inform you of our activities and campaigns. NSICT does not supply personal data to third parties. In conformity with applicable legal obligations we only mention your name and place of residence to the Dutch Data Protection Authority (DPA) when a petition has been signed.

NSICT is responsible for providing appropriate organizational and technical security for the systems in which personal data is stored. This ensures that personal data can only be accessed by employees who are authorized and used for the purposes for which they were obtained.

NSICT’s donor and relationship management is registered with the Dutch Data Protection Authority (DPA) under notification number 1646367. The Central Bureau for Fundraising (CBF) has acknowledged NSICT as a registered charity (www.cbf.nl). We are beneficiaries of the branch association Goede Doelen Nederland (www.goededoelennederland.nl) and subscribe to the codes of conduct that this branch association has drawn up, including the SBF Code of Good Governance. NSICT only works with parties who observe the Do Not Call (Bel-me-niet) Register (www.bel-me-niet.nl).

If you have any questions about the processing of your personal data or if you would like to know which personal data is being processed by NSICT, please contact our secretariat during office hours at telephone number 020-3308265. NSICT is obliged to request proof of identity before we may let you see any personal data in our administration.

Collecting data through the internet

NSICT collects personal data through its website. This takes place when you subscribe to one of our email newsletters, participate in an online action, register as a patron, donor or volunteer, or place an order via our webshop.

Collecting data outside the internet

NSICT also collects personal data if you participate in a NSICT activity or if you become a donor or patron through a street recruiter, a registration form, a telephone conversation or in any other manner.

Participating in NSICT campaigns

There is a variety of ways (both online and offline) in which you can participate in a NSICT campaign. If you participate in a NSICT campaign in which we address an authority, company or institution, you may receive a response from this company or institution. If you suspect that your data is being made public by the company or institution as a result of your participation in one of our campaigns, please contact our secretariat during office hours at telephone number 020-3308265.

Email

If you have given NSICT your email address as a patron, donor, volunteer or through a general information request, you will be sent emails to inform you of our work, ask your support for our campaign actions and, occasionally, to ask you for a contribution. If you wish to receive fewer emails or no emails at all, you can unsubscribe whenever you like through the unsubscribe option in every message or by contacting NSICT’s secretariat during office hours at telephone number 020-3308265.

When sending emails, NSICT uses a system which gives us insight into the way in which these emails are opened. We can also see whether or not you click on the links in our email. This enables us to further optimize the information we send you and to bring it more into line with your interests.

Under the Personal Data Protection Act it is not (yet) obligatory to report this option, which is used by many organizations. If you wish to withdraw permission to receive information by email, you can use the unsubscribe link in the email in question or contact NSICT’s secretariat during office hours at telephone number 020-3308265.

Contact with donors

If you register as a donor of NSICT, we will store any personal data you provide in our donor records. NSICT informs its donors of campaigns through mailings, email, post, telephone and/or social media.

NSICT is a foundation whose income depends upon donations from private individuals. Our donor records also contain personal data of relations. A relation is a person who is known to NSICT – for example through participation in a campaign, an order in the webshop, a request for information or as a former donor – but who is not an active donor.

If you have stated that you no longer wish to receive post from NSICT, we will process this in our administration and will no longer contact you through the address you have given us. NSICT also uses telemarketing to ask our donors and relations for financial support and to inform them of our campaigns. When doing so, NSICT works within the legal frameworks of the Telecommunications Act and the Personal Data Protection Act (www.rijksoverheid.nl). When recruiting new donors by telephone, we check the address file used against notification in the Do Not Call register (www.bel-me-niet.nl). If you have stated that you no longer wish to receive calls from NSICT, we will process this in our administration and will no longer contact you at the telephone number you have given us.

Becoming a volunteer at NSICT

NSICT stores personal data of volunteers in our volunteer administration. This information is not passed on to third parties.

NSICT informs its volunteers by telephone, post and email of volunteer activities, volunteer meetings and NSICT campaigns. Volunteers can unsubscribe for this information via the unsubscribe option in every message or by calling NSICT’s secretariat during office hours at 020-3308265.

Changing data

You can change your data at any time through our online contact form (https://www.savetibet.nl/over-int-campaign-for-tibet/contactformulier/contact-opnemen/) or by email via icteurope@savetibet.nl.
If you would prefer to inform us of any changes by telephone, please contact NSICT’s secretariat, which can be reached during office hours at telephone number 020-3308265.

Cookies

NSICT uses cookies. Cookies are small text files which are placed on a PC, tablet or mobile telephone through an internet page. They are used to make NSICT’s websites more user-friendly and to monitor visits to them.

NSICT’s websites (www.savetibet.nl; www.savetibet.org; www.savetibet.de; and www.tibetpolicy.eu) and the NSICT webshop (www.savetibetwebshop.nl) use cookies to adjust certain options and to improve the experience of visitors returning to the site. Cookies also make it easy for registered users to fill in online action forms and to make comments without having to fill in the same information again.

You can turn off or delete cookies at any time. You can also install your browser in such a way that it deactivates cookies or notifies you each time you receive one. It is possible, however, that the website will not function optimally if you use this option.

NSICT uses Google Analytics to collect information on, for example, the date and time that you visit our website and which pages you view on it. NSICT uses this information to improve the website, compile traffic statistics (such as the time of day or days in the week that the website attracts most visitors) and to estimate the popularity of the various parts of the site. NSICT only uses such data in an aggregated form so that it cannot be traced back to a PC or individual. You can install the “Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on” to prevent our website sending information about your visits to Google Analytics.

We display buttons and widgets from the social networks Facebook, Twitter and YouTube on our website to make it easy for you to share NSICT campaigns and news with friends. These social networks are linked to web servers that can trace your behaviour on our website and combine it with other information from other websites. Facebook and Twitter cookies will only be placed if you are logged in on Facebook or Twitter when visiting NSICT’s website and you give permission for this. You can turn off this function by installing a programme like “Disconnect” for Chrome and Firefox.

Personalization of advertising communications

NSICT uses retargeting for its website. We use this technique to make the information displayed even more interesting for you. This makes it possible for internet users who have already expressed interest in NSICT’s campaigns, goals and products to see relevant advertising communications on other websites. NSICT is convinced that personalized advertising communications are more interesting for internet users than advertising communications that are irrelevant to them. These advertising communications are displayed on the pages of partners by using cookies and an analysis of previous user behaviour. This form of advertising is completely anonymous. No privacy-related data is stored and no user profiles are linked to your privacy-related data.

Security

NSICT has taken appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect your personal data against loss or data leaks. NSICT uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to protect the communication of sensitive information online. SSL is a protocol that has been designed to guarantee communication privacy and to prevent bugging, intrusion or falsification of messages. Our website, donor page and webshop use SSL so that any private information you send, such as payment details, are not visible to third parties. If you are on a secure page such as our donor form, your browser should notify you that you are on a safe site.
Within our organization all your data, not just sensitive data like payment details, is only available to a limited extent. Only employees who need this information to perform a specific task (such as our administrative employees) have access to the personal data required for this task.

These privacy regulations are regularly reviewed. If you have any questions about this policy, please contact NSICT’s secretariat during office hours at telephone number 020-3308265.
