Privacy Statement

Of course you find it important what happens with your data and you also find transparency about this important. Net4kids shares this opinion. It has been one of our core values since day 1. We do our utmost to handle your data safely and clearly. Below we will hopefully answer all your questions about your personal data within Net4kids.

On what basis do we process your personal data?

We process (official term - this includes any use, collection, storage, etc.) personal data based on one or more of the following principles:

  • agreements with us (for example, contractually between the investor and Net4kids);
  • legal obligations arising from the concluded agreements (for example, data that we must keep for the Tax Authorities);
  • processing is necessary for the legitimate interests of Net4kids (for example, the data of local project partners who 'carry out' our projects);
  • your permission / expressed interest in us. If you want to withdraw this permission, you want to view or change your data, you can email us: info@net4kids.org

What happens with my data?

You can get in touch with us in different places and ways. For example, you may have completed a contact form on our website. In the case of the complete form, it concerns name, company name, email address and your message. In the case of the short form, it only concerns your email address. If you use these forms, this information will be used to contact you further. Until there is a concrete interest in cooperation, apart from the above action, nothing is done with this data.

It is also possible that you express your interest in Net4kids in another way. The same process applies to this. If you make a donation through the PIFworld / direct bank transfer platform, we may contact you through the PIF platform.

As soon as there is grounds for interest in further collaboration or if you actually make a donation, we will store your data in our CRM system “Salesforce” to the extent available and we can use it to maintain contact. By “maintaining contact” we mean all correspondence regarding possible concrete cooperation, keeping up to date with major organizational updates such as removals, any relevant news updates or general fundraising events.

We believe that if there is ground for cooperation, you also share our dream and want to be involved in what we do. Of course we limit this to information that is relevant to you. We will never approach you about matters unrelated to our mission, nor will we make your information available to others without your permission.

What personal data do we collect and why?

Net4kids only collects and stores information relevant to us. What we hold about you in personal data is, for example:

  • First and last name - so that we know who we are dealing with;
  • Email address and / or telephone number - so that we can reach you;
  • Title function - so that we know we are dealing with the right person;
  • The company you work for - so we know if we can see your interest as a private or business person;
  • Language - so that we can address you in the correct language;
  • Bank details - so that we can properly allocate any bank charges in our accounts.

We may validate personal data from external sources, such as checking your title function on LinkedIn. This way we can address you in the right way.

If you want to remain personally involved by post, we always coordinate this together in advance. Only then will we also collect your private address information.

In addition to personal data, as a B2B we also use business data. These are not traceable to people.

How long do we keep personal data?

We have set our retention period at 5 years. This means that we store the personal data known to us for up to 5 years after the last donation date or active involvement.

From Net4kids we often convert to costs per child per year. This calculation literally includes the educational costs for the child, but also includes costs such as teacher salary or the purchase of new school materials. Often the duration of a program that a child runs through is longer than a year - sometimes up to 15 years - and investments in infrastructure, for example, are long-term investments. The impact of a one-off annual investment is therefore not limited to one year, but is much longer.

Netkids and the investor enter into an agreement to invest in child aid projects, with the intention of making an impact on children's lives. The intention, regardless of whether the investor is still actively donating or not, is unlikely to have changed. That is why we want to keep the investor informed, even if he no longer donates in the new year. On the other hand, we understand that the investor does not want to be informed indefinitely about the impact of his investment if he has already decided to stop investing via Net4kids. Based on the average duration of the programs, we therefore maintain a retention period of 5 years after the last donation date or time of the last active involvement with Net4kids. After this period, we will request written or email permission to keep in touch for another 5 years. If we have received your permission, a new period of 5 years will start again. If there is no or negative response to this extension, the personal data will be deleted.

From a tax perspective, invoices will be kept for up to 7 years after the donation date. When it comes to invoices without personal data, this will be longer.
