We need certain personal data to successfully support and improve the mission of the Fundación, by contacting beneficiaries, sponsors, participants, donors, users, and volunteers, following up on funding requests and support of approved projects and to organise fundraising events.

For instance when you register for an event or contact us to request information to apply for funding for a potential project with the Fundación, there is certain personal data that needs to be recorded so that we can provide services (see Section 5 above). This also applies to signing up for a newsletter, making a donation, expressing an interest in our events or connecting with the Fundación for any other reason.

We process personal data for the following specific purposes:


You can register during our events, through our website or by sending an email to receive news and updates on the work achieved by the Fundación. The newsletters contain also information about fundraising activities, approved projects and/or planned fundraising events. If you no longer wish to receive a newsletter, you can unsubscribe in any email via our provider Mailchimp or contacting us.

Sponsorships and Donations

If you make a financial contribution, as donor or sponsor, to the Fundación and/or supported projects, the Fundación collects contact details, such as name or company name, address, telephone number, email address, and bank details (see Section 5 above). This is done in order to maintain contact with everyone and provide relevant information. During a fundraising event, attendees are invited to make contributions, and they can do this with a debit card by pin to the Fundación’s Bank Account. Through this transfer, we do have access to data such as: Person’s name; IBAN number; Time of purchase; Amount paid for the purchase. Our organization does not make any kind of use of this information.

Fundraising Events

When people participate in our fundraising events, they either contribute by purchasing an entrance ticket and/or they have the option to donate through our provider Eventbrite. This means that all the personal information is directly processed and administered by Eventbrite. However we do have access to peoples names and email (see Section 5 above). In this respect the Fundación keeps an updated list of people who have registered and attended through Eventbrite.
