Privacy Policy

Introduction

The present policy applies to Terre des hommes Valais (TdhVs).

We give importance to the protection of your private life. We respect your personality as well as your private life, and aim to their protection as well as a use of your personal data in line with the law.

The present Confidentiality Policy explains what information is collected when you log to and use our website pages accessible on http://www.tdh-valais.ch (Platforms), the ways in which the collected information is used, and the level of security we provide in protecting those.

By accessing and using the platforms, you expressly agree to this Privacy Policy which can be altered at all times in view of adapting to new commercial practices, technology or legal modifications.

Data collection

We collect data in relation to you access and utilisation of the Platforms.

Notably, we may collect personal data such as your name, gender, date of birth, address, payment information, Email, telephone number, language preference, or other information which might be useful to identify you or contact you with regards to the use of these platforms.

Use of the collected data

We use the collected data for the purpose stated in their collection, including the achievement of our activities and our humanitarian purpose. In particular, we may use this data in view of the dissemination of targeted information on our activities, our financial support, analysis, as well as the subscription to our electronic Newsletter.

No transmission of secure data

The electronic communication operates via an open cross-border network. It is therefore possible that outside parties consult the transmitted data and that the contact establishment be tracked.

Third-party websites

The platforms may contain links to external websites, notably websites of partners of the organisation. This Confidentiality Policy does not apply to those other third-party websites or the practices of other institutions or individuals that TdhVs does not control. You must inform yourself about and review the confidentiality policies of third-party websites that you visit, as these policies govern the collection and use of your Personal Data when you visit these websites. Subject to legal limits, TdhVs cannot be held liable for the confidentiality practices of third-party websites.

Communication to third parties

We do not communicate your Personal Data to third parties, except to our partners and/or subcontractors when this is necessary to perform the goals for which data were collected. For example, when you make a donation for our financial support, your payment information is only transmitted to the company that is subcontracted to manage and cash your donation.

International transmission

Your personal data are processed in Switzerland but may also be stored and used in other countries. It should be noted that these locations may include countries that do not guarantee the same standard of personal data protection as Switzerland. By submitting this data to us, you accept this transfer.

Cookies

To improve the uses and features of our Services, we use “cookies” or other beacons that may automatically save Personal Data. A cookie is a small data file that is saved on your electronic device. When you access and use the Platform, the cookie identifies your electronic device. We also use cookies to measure the Platform’s traffic, use and features.

If you do not want cookies to be saved on your electronic device, you must configure your Internet browser or electronic device to refuse cookies before using the Platform. If you do not do so, you consent to the collection and processing of the data collected. This may affect or prevent your use of the Platform or some of its features.

Modifications

We may modify this Confidentiality Policy at any time as we see fit. By accessing and using the Platform after these modifications, you accept the modified Confidentiality Policy. The Confidentiality Policy in force when data is collected and used governs the collection and use of this data.

Right of access and modification

Unless otherwise required by law, we will provide you with a summary of data collected and processed on request. Subject to any contrary legal provisions, you will be given the opportunity to correct, update, modify or delete this information by sending a request by e-mail to info@tdh-valais.ch
