What we collect
If you choose to share it with us we may collect the following information:
- your name
- your contact information including your address and your email address
- demographic information such as your country of residence, postcode, preferences and interests
What we do with the information we gather
The Odysseus Unbound Foundation processes your personal data as a Controller as defined in the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
We require this information to understand your needs and provide you with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons:
- Internal record keeping, such as for donations made through this website.
- If you opt in to receive them we may periodically send newsletters containing information which we think you may find interesting using the email address which you have provided.
- We may use the information to improve our products and services.
We will not use your personal information for direct marketing nor will we sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so.
We may transfer your data to another country or international organisation for processing. For example, our newsletters are processed by MailChimp, which is based in the USA, and donations are processed by Stripe or PayPal, which operate internationally.
Other countries may not have data protection laws as comprehensive or protective as those of your country of residence. However, we shall only transfer your information to organisations that have agreed to process data in compliance with the EU GDPR.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
For example, we never store your credit card details on our servers and all donation transactions are secured by SSL. Both Stripe and PayPal support the European Union’s new Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) requirements (effective from 14 September 2019).
