This obligation has explicitly been included in a Data Processing Agreement between Aidsfonds and Kentaa.

Purpose of the processing of your Personal Data

Through the website Aidsfonds, Aidsfonds processes (personal) data for the following purposes:

  • Creating and managing of a personal donation box and the realization and execution of online donation
    Aidsfonds stores data such as your name, email address, bank details, data ralated to transactions or donations, the personal donation box or data that are relevant in case you and Aidsfonds enter into an agreement or you contribute financially to Aidsfonds's objectives as a donor or online fundraiser.
  • Notifications about activities
    Aidsfonds shall keep online fundraisers, donors and other interested parties informed about its activities by sending them emails, provided that you have given permission for this. Aidsfonds shall always ask consent before processing your personal data. Aidsfonds may also ask for your (financial) support through emailing.
  • Optimising the website and emails
    To optimise the content of Aidsfonds's emails, the open and click ratio of emails can be monitored and recorded at an individual level.

  • Improving the services
    In some cases, Aidsfonds uses the email addresses of online fundraisers and relations for research to improve the services.

    Aidsfonds stores data to offer and execute events or travels, or to grant benefits to patients. In order to realise these objectives, we may ask for health data. You must give your explicit prior consent for the processing of these special personal data for the purposes described above. Aidsfonds registers that consent.
  • Social media advertising possibilities
    To show you specific posts and advertisements, Aidsfonds may use the options offered by social media platforms, such as Facebook, to advertise through their services. Aidsfonds uses Facebook's email list custom audiences to reach or exclude specific target groups. Aidsfonds creates a Custom Audience by uploading the email addresses of its members/donors to an advertising tool. This group can then be linked to or excluded from a specific Facebook campaign. Aidsfonds uses the Facebook pixel to measure the effectiveness of advertisements. You can opt out from receiving advertisements or change your preferences, through the privacy settings of the social media platform, e.g. Facebook.

Method for processing your Personal Data

Aidsfonds collects (and therefore processes) personal data through different forms on this website. When you create a online donation box or make a donation, Aidsfonds may ask you for your personal data. Aidsfonds also does that if you sign up for receiving (email) newsletters, request information, ask information about activities, ask a question, or respond to the website. Sometimes, Aidsfonds may validate personal data or combine them with information from external sources. This is how Aidsfonds keeps its database up to date.

If it turns out that any person who leaves their personal data on the website Aidsfonds, for any reason, is under 16, Aidsfonds shall verify if these data were provided with a parent's or guardian's consent, as far as possible with the technical means available. If such consent is missing, Aidsfonds shall not process the personal data.

Security of your Personal data

Aidsfonds has taken appropriate physical, technical, and organisational measures for the protection of your personal data. Through its processor Kentaa, Aidsfonds uses a secure server that can only be accessed by authorised persons. Any data you upload to online forms, is sent with encryption.

Aidsfonds or Kentaa, respectively, made a processing agreement withMollie B.V., under which Mollie B.V. is obliged to take appropriate technical and organisational measures for the protection of your personal data.
