Information pursuant to Art. 13, GDPR

All personal data provided will be processed by Associazione ActionAid Switzerland - data controller - Via Nassa 21, 6900 Lugano (hereinafter also referred to as "AA") using computer and telematic procedures for the following purposes:

  1. Processing requests and inquiries made through forms
  2. Promotional communications on own activities, institutional initiatives, fundraising and awareness-raising activities, research and surveys
  3. Customized promotional communications ("profiling") based on characteristics, interests and behaviours for the purposes listed in point 2.

All details marked with an asterisk are mandatory and if not provided it will not be possible to proceed with the request. All other details are not relevant and may not be provided, without prejudice to the right to obtain what has been requested.

The legal basis for the purpose mentioned in paragraph 1. is the fulfilment of obligations assumed towards the person concerned (art. 6, paragraph 1, letter b), GDPR). The retention of data is limited to the period necessary to process the request, which may also involve multiple contacts if not settled immediately or if the person concerned provides additional information or makes further inquiries.

The legal basis for the purpose mentioned in point 2. is the "legitimate interest" (art. 6, paragraph 1, letter f), GDPR, recital C47, GDPR and Opinion 6 of April 09, 2014 of the Working Party 29, paragraph 3.III) of AA to maintain a constant relationship with individuals who have interacted with AA in various manners and have shown interest in our principles and reasonably expect to receive information from AA regarding proposals for financial support or involvement in initiatives and awareness raising campaigns. For this purpose, therefore, the data will be stored in our archives for the period of time necessary to provide these information services, estimating this period according to the expectation of how long these persons will be interested in and share the mission of AA. Obviously, this retention period is extended as long as the person concerned shows interest in staying in touch with AA: if they no longer have an interest, it is sufficient to notify AA by the means explained below and AA will adopt the appropriate technical and logistical measures so as not to disturb these individuals any longer.

The legal basis for the purpose mentioned in point 3. is the consent of the data subject (Art. 6, paragraph 1, letter a), GDPR), expressed in an unequivocal manner. If desired, by ticking the relevant box, the data will be processed for communications tailored to the characteristics of behaviour, interests and preferences with respect to our actions. The profiling will involve the selection of information stored by the person concerned, so that they receive communications of interest to them and in line with their preferences, thus avoiding unwelcome or uninteresting communications. The data will be kept as long as the data subject's profile is in line with the customised notifications created by cross-referencing the information available to us and, therefore, as long as AA continues to pursue its mission with projects, initiatives, actions and activities - requiring financial contributions or spreading awareness – which reflect the person’s characteristics and behaviour and are, therefore, of specific interest to them and not of disturbance. Also in this case, the data storage will cease if the data subject expresses opposition at any time to the processing of personal data carried out for profiling purposes related to direct marketing.

The personnel authorised to process data are responsible for the services for which information is requested, relations with current and potential donors, marketing activities, information services and data security.

In accordance with art. 15-22, GDPR, by writing to the e-mail address, you are entitled to request a list of data processors and to exercise your right to access, rectify, cancel, and limit data processing, data portability, data processing opposition, also for direct marketing purposes, with or without profiling. In case of violations, you may lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority of the EU country where you reside or work or where you believe data processing has been carried out that has violated the rules of confidentiality of data related to you.
