Therefore, the user is free to provide personal data contained in the application forms or otherwise indicated in contacts with ZanzibarHelp to request information or for the other purposes listed above. In these cases of compulsory provision of data, their absence may make it impossible to obtain what is requested. The need to request data as mandatory for adherence to individual projects or individual initiatives or to make requests has been considered in compliance with the provisions of art. 25, GDPR (“Data protection by design and protection by default” – “Data Protection by design and by default”), which require the prior evaluation of the appropriate technical and organizational measures, such as “pseudonymization” (art. 4 , paragraph 5, GDPR: “the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is stored separately and subject to technical measures and organizational measures aimed at ensuring that such personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person “), aimed at effectively implementing the principles of data protection, such as minimization, and integrating the necessary guarantees into the processing in order to satisfy the requirements of the GDPR and protect the rights of the interested parties.

Furthermore, if desired, the data acquired by ZanzibarHelp and those that it will acquire during the relationship with the interested party will be processed for the purpose of promotional, informative and institutional contacts on our projects, activities and fundraising initiatives, surveys and research reserved for donors, through actions designed in a personalized way based on the characteristics of behavior (eg: amount donated, donation frequency, area of ​​residence), interests and preferences regarding our actions, with the consequence of identifying the interested party as potential subject interested in our initiatives with certain characteristics (eg projects, distance support, bequests, adherence to petitions, etc. ..) and to send him only content in line with his needs (“profiling”). It is emphasized that the contact actions conducted by ZanzibarHelp are only of a personalized type as described (“profiled marketing”), in order to avoid unwanted or uninteresting contacts of the interested party: consequently, profiling being instrumentally connected in a structural way for each action for promotional purposes by ZanzibarHelp, a single manifestation of consent is required for these contacts.

The aforementioned activities may take place through both traditional contact methods (paper mail and telephone calls via operator on fixed and mobile numbers) and automated and similar ones (specifically, via e-mail and SMS).

For this purpose, the data (including profiling data) will be kept until the interested party’s consent is revoked or the right to object is exercised; failing that, they will be kept as long as ZanzibarHelp continues its mission with projects, initiatives, actions and activities that require financial contributions or that encourage awareness (eg: petitions, accessions to emergency projects) consistent with the profile of the person concerned. Thereafter, they will be anonymised for statistical purposes. The data will also be processed by external managers responsible for services related to the above.

The data of donors who adhere to the distance support project will necessarily be transferred abroad, to non-EU countries, to the ZanzibarHelp centers, responsible for the treatment, where the supported child lives, to allow interpersonal correspondence between the child and donor. The data processor for purposes related to the match between the supporter and the supported child and to receive updated reports on distance support is: ZanzibarHelp US 501 Kings Highway East, Suite 400 Fairfield, CT 06825.
