Our mission as a humanitarian foundation is to contribute to complete and sustainable communities, through integration, development and empowerment projects.
To do that, we provide you with information about our projects that may be of interest to you and collect some information from you when you visit our site, subscribe to our newsletter, sign up for a project or an event on our website, apply for a position or contact us through our website. We only use such information where we have a proper legal basis for doing so
We prepared this policy to help you understand what information we collect, how we use it and what choices you have about it. Some of the concepts below may be a appear technical, we have provided simpler explanations for your understanding. We welcome your questions and comments on this policy.
We collect information in a few different ways:
1. When you give it to us or give us permission to obtain it
When you subscribe to our newsletters, sign up for our projects or events, or apply to join our team, you give us certain information voluntarily. This includes your name, email address, phone number, address, and any other information you give to us.
When you contact us by any other means, or connect your social media accounts to any service we provide. Some of your personal information may be shared with us, we advice you to check your settings on these social media pages.
2. We also get technical information when you visit UID website.
Whenever you use any website, mobile application or other internet service, certain information gets created and logged automatically. The same is true when you use UID. Here are some of the types of information we collect:
What we do with the info we collect:
We use the information we collect to provide the Service to you. We commit to showing you content that’s relevant, interesting and useful to you. In order to do that, it’s necessary for us to use your information to Report technical issues or make suggestions on how we can improve on our site.
In addition and for similar reasons, we have a legitimate interest in using your information in these ways. It is also fundamental to the nature of the Service we provide. In summary, it’s necessary for us to do these things in order to make the Service relevant, interesting and useful to you.
We also have a legitimate interest to improve UID, maintain our relationship with you, and protect users. Both parties benefit when we use your information to:
Conduct analytics on who is using UID and what they are doing. For example, by logging what kind of projects or events people are most interested in and what features on UID are mostly used so we can understand the user experience on the site.
Improve UID and offer new features.
Work with law enforcement and keep UID safe. We may get requests for certain information from law enforcement authorities like the police or courts.
Identify you across different browser sessions. This means if you log into UID from your phone (or any device), we'll remember that you're you and you won't need to enter your login details each time you visit UID.
Transferring your information:
We take additional measures when information is transferred from the European Economic Area (EEA). We also rely on European Commission adequacy decisions about certain countries, as applicable, for data transfers to countries outside the EEA. Please read more on the Wix Policy
as we are hosted by wix.
Choices you have about your info:
You also have choices available to you through the device or software you use to access UID. For example:
The browser you use lets you control cookies or other types of local data storage.
Your mobile device lets you choose how and whether your location, and other data is shared with us.
To learn more about these choices, please see the information provided by your device or software provider.
How long we keep your information:
We keep your information only so long as we need it to provide UID to you and fulfill the purposes described in this policy. This is also the case for anyone that we share your information with and who carries out services on our behalf.
When we no longer need to use your information and there is no need for us to keep it to comply with our legal or regulatory obligations, we’ll either remove it from our systems or depersonalize it so that we can't identify you.
Our policy on children’s information:
Children under 13 are not allowed to use UID. If you are based in the EEA you may only use UID if you are over the age at which you can provide consent to data processing under the laws of your country or if verifiable parental consent for your use of UID has been provided to us.
If you are a parent and you learn that your child is using UID and you don't want them to, please contact us.
How we make changes to this policy:
We may change this policy from time to time and if we do, we’ll post any changes on this page. If you continue to use UID after those changes are in effect, you agree to the new policy.
If the changes are significant, we may provide a more prominent notice or get your consent, as required by law .
You have options in relation to the information that we have about you described below. To exercise these options, please contact us. If you're an EEA user, you can:
Access the information we hold about you. We'll usually share this with you within 30 days of you asking us for it.
