We would like to inform you about the collection and processing of your personal data.

Your personal data is collected by Free a Girl. You can read how Free a Girl collects and processes your data below.

Free a Girl depends on your help to achieve our goals: to bring an end to sexual exploitation of children by creating awareness of its existence worldwide and compel the world’s citizens to act to combat it. Whether you do this by making a donation, working as a volunteer, sharing a campaign or starting your own fundraising, all help is very welcome and vital if we want to achieve our mission. In order to create mutual trust between you and Free a Girl, we want to inform you in a transparent manner about the way in which we collect and process your personal information.

We are responsible for your personal data.

Free a Girl is responsible for collecting and processing your personal data and is dedicated to safeguarding this information in a prudent manner. Among other things, this means: we treat your personal data in confidence;  we have taken security measures to protect your personal data against loss, unauthorized access or theft; and  we will delete data if we no longer need it for our activities.

When do we receive your personal data?

In order to fund our rescue teams and offer victims direct assistance and fighting impunity, we depend on our donors and volunteers. When they register with us, we receive their personal data. For example, when you make a donation to Free a Girl, your name, address and account number are processed. This information is required in order to register and process your donation. If you are a Free a Girl volunteer, you create your own fundraising event for Free a Girl or if you commit yourself to Free a Girl in another way, we will also collect your data for our records.

We may also process your personal data when you use our services. This takes place when you contact us by email or telephone. In those cases, we will process data such as your telephone number, your email address, or your name.

Our Privacy Statement relates to Free a Girl and all websites managed by us.

Our Privacy Statement applies to the use of personal data by Free a Girl and by websites managed by Free a Girl.

We use your personal data in order to achieve our mission.

We use your personal data because we need the information to process donations. We can also use your data to help us optimize our services and spread our message further. Sometimes we also keep data because this is required by financial and fiscal obligations, including statutory obligations.

We only process the personal data that is required for the processing of donations or that helps us achieve our mission. Specifically, we process your personal data, so that we can:

  • Process and manage your donation;
  • Manage our accounts and fulfil all financial and fiscal obligations, including statutory obligations;
  • Test and improve the quality of our service provision, such as gaining an insight into the performance of our website or websites;

Free a Girl does not sell your personal data to third parties.

We do not retain your personal data for any longer than is necessary.

Your personal data is not retained for any longer than is necessary. Our aim is to destroy the personal data of donors once they are no longer needed to help us achieve our goals. Some data is retained because financial and/or fiscal obligations require it. In such cases, your data will be retained for seven years. When this period has elapsed, we will ensure your personal data is promptly and prudently deleted.

You have various rights when it concerns your personal data.

On the account of the privacy legislation you are entitled to make a request to inspect your personal data or to have them corrected or deleted. The latter will be the case if your personal data is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was collected or processed. You also have the right to request for data transmission. This means that you can submit a request to us to send the personal data that we maintain to another organization.
