Terre des hommes (“Tdh”) respects your confidentiality and private life. This Confidentiality Policy explains (i) which information is collected when you access and use the Internet pages accessible at (the “Platform”), (ii) how we use the information collected, and (iii) the level of security we provide to protect this information.

By accessing and using the Platform, you accept this Confidentiality Policy. The policy may be modified at any time to take into account new commercial or technological practices or legislative modifications.

Data collection

We collect data in connection with your access to and use of the Platform. In particular, we may collect personal data such as your name, sex, date of birth, address, payment information, e-mail address, telephone number, language preference, profession and any other information that may be used to identify or contact you in connection with your access to and use of the Platform (“Personal Data”).

Use of collected data

Data that have been collected and transmitted are used for the purposes mentioned at the time of collection, which include performing activities and furthering our humanitarian goals. In particular, we use these data to communicate targeted information concerning our activities, financial support (including support for our projects and actions) and subscriptions to our electronic newsletter.

Third-party websites

The Platform may contain links or references to third-party websites, including websites for local delegations that are managed and supervised by these local delegations. This Confidentiality Policy does not apply to these third-party websites or to the practices of other companies or individuals that Tdh does not control. You must find out 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, Tdh 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.

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.

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.
