Not-for-profit associations can only achieve the objectives for which they were founded if they can count on the necessary resources. That’s why we rely on generous donations from businesses, organizations and individuals. For a non-profit association such as ours, it is therefore also essential to be able to reach the widest possible audience in our mission and fundraising campaigns.
For this reason, in certain cases (see below) we pass on your personal data to another data controller, DSC, which only uses your data to raise funds for other non-profit organisations. We believe it is important that other good causes can also reach as many people as possible and thus raise the necessary funds to carry out their work. These other non-profit organizations then also give us the chance to get in touch with their supporters.
When you make a donation via the account numbers BE15 0013 1604 0830 and BE22 3631 2869 0647, your name, address, title, gender, language and the data relating to your donation are transmitted to DSC (unless you do not wish this – see below – or you belong to the donor file which is the exclusive property of Vétérinaires Sans Frontières and is not transmitted to DSC). DSC processes this data in its own database as part of its role as data controller in order to allow your postal data to be used by other non-profit associations for the same purposes as those of our organisation, and within the same framework as that described in this document. A list of the non-profit organisations concerned can be obtained on request from DSC. For this reason, you may be contacted by other not-for-profit associations to inquire about their projects and similar opportunities to donate to their good causes.
The transmission of this data to DSC and other non-profit organizations is justified by the legitimate interest of our organization and other non-profit organizations involved in good causes. This legitimate interest is to be able to provide funds to non-profit organizations (including our own) to carry out our respective missions, in order to contribute to a better world. By reaching out to people who are already donating to a good cause, these non-profit organizations increase their chances of receiving new donations. These organizations, including Vétérinaires Sans Frontières, thus spend their fundraising budget as efficiently as possible in their quest for financial means. DSC keeps the data for up to 10 years after your last donation to one of the organisations concerned.
If you or third parties (e.g. your bank or bpost) share changes to your personal data, these will be made in our file and in the DSC file. For the production of certain fundraising campaigns, DSC uses a supplier based in the United States that is certified by the Data Protection Shield, or Privacy Shield. You may also make use of your rights against DSC, as mentioned in point 5 above.
DSC will no longer keep your data in its own file for the purposes described in this point 8 if you indicate that you no longer wish to do so – subject to the provisions described in point 5 above – by contacting DSC by letter addressed to Direct Social Communications S.A., Rue Victor Rauter 33, 1070 Brussels or by e-mail to email@example.com, in both cases enclosing a copy (of the front) of your identity card or other document certifying your identity. You can also contact Vétérinaires Sans Frontières at any time, who will forward your question to DSC, by sending a letter to Vétérinaires Sans Frontières, Avenue des Arts 7-8 – 1210 Brussels, or an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, in both cases enclosing a copy (of the front) of your identity card or another document certifying your identity.
