Privacy Policy

CISV PRIVACY AND COOKIE POLICY

Last updated: 21-May-18

NOTE: this privacy policy applies to visitors to the CISV website and participants in CISV international educational programmes (“programmes”), including participants who register in myCISV.  Programme participants are typically under the age of 18 so the policy is for parents and legal guardians as well as the participants themselves: so when we refer to “you” we mean, “you the participant” or “your child, the participant”.

1. Introduction

Thanks for reading our privacy policy. It tells you how we (CISV International Ltd, and our affiliate organisations and partners) collect, use and share your personal information, what your rights are – and how to exercise those rights.

First of all, here’s a bit about us. CISV provides a range of unique, educational group activities, which develop cross-cultural understanding in children and youth from around the world.  By encouraging respect for cultural differences and the development of self-awareness, CISV empowers each participant to incorporate these values into their lives as they become global citizens and strive for a more peaceful world. Our use of personal information is directly linked to these charitable aims.

Now some key terms.

By “personal information” we mean personal data as defined in European data protection law, the GDPR. In general, it means any information that relates to you, which identifies you or allows you to be identified. That may be your name, an ID number, location, an online identifier or factors specific to you (e.g. physical, physiology (thoughts, feelings), genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social factors).

By “sensitive personal information” we mean two things: 1. what’s technically known as “special categories” (personal information revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, genetic data, biometric data for the purpose of uniquely identifying an individual, data concerning health or data concerning an individual’s sex life or sexual orientation) and 2. criminal data (criminal offences or related security measures, including the alleged commission of offences, proceedings for an offence committed or alleged to have been committed or the disposal of those proceedings, including sentencing). In practice, we collect health data from participants who want to attend a CISV programme, and the views that participants express on CISV values – which may amount to philosophical beliefs. Otherwise we do not set out to collect sensitive personal information.

The privacy policy is split up into parts:

  1. Introduction
  2. Important information about your rights in relation to consent and to object to our use of your personal information
  3. Key information  required by the GDPR
  4. CISV affiliate organisations and partners
  5. Cookies

If you have any queries about this privacy policy, please contact us. Our contact details are in section a of “Key information required by the GDPR” below.

2. Important information about your rights in relation to consent and to object to our use of your personal information

Your rights in relation to consent: If you wish to participate in one of our programmes, your local CISV National Association and Chapter may ask you to complete a Health Form. This form will be shared with the CISV National Association and Chapter running the programme and with your host family. CISV International Ltd will only get a copy of this health form in the event of an incident, complaint or claim. You may, at any time, withdraw your explicit consent to us using the sensitive personal information in the Health Form. However, please be aware that, for health and safety reasons and to be able to deal with your medical needs, we are not willing to provide the programme to you without this information, nor can we make adjustments to provide for your needs.

Participants that register in our safe online myCISV website are also invited to consent to receiving information about CISV from us or from our Alumni Association in the USA. Participants can withdraw consent to marketing/fundraising communications by changing their consent settings in myCISV or by using the opt-out in the marketing/fundraising communication. We will only transfer your personal information to our Alumni Association if you give this consent.

Using the settings in myCISV, you may consent to your personal information being accessed by fellow participants or our members of staff/volunteers, who may be anywhere in the world. We have safeguards in place so that under-16s cannot make their contact details visible to other participants, and all participants have full control over who they share their personal information with. Please see our terms and conditions for further details.

To give or withdraw consent to cookies, please adjust your browser settings.

To withdraw your other consents, please contact us. Please make it clear you want to exercise this right, for example by putting “Withdrawal of consent” in the subject line of the email. Thank you.

3. Key information required by the GDPR

Here are important details about us and our use of your personal information.

Requirement Our details
a.        Our identity and contact details

Identity and contact details and, where applicable, of the representative

CISV International Ltd, registered in England & Wales with company registration no. 3672838; registered with the Charity Commissioner charity no. 1073308.

Address: MEA House, Ellison Place, Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne & Wear, NE1 8XS, England.

Telephone: +44 (0)191 2324998

Email: international@cisv.org

We are entered in the UK Information Commissioner’s register of data controllers with registration number Z7421894.

It would be very helpful if you would tell us exactly why you are contacting us. For example to exercise a right, please put the name of the right in the subject line of the email. Thank you.

b.        Data protection officer

Contact details of the data protection officer, where applicable

We do not have a data protection officer. For data protection queries, comments or complaints please use our contact details in the “Identity and contact details” section a above.
c.         Purposes and legal basis

The purposes of the use for which the personal information is  intended as well as the legal basis for the use

 

Here’s a key to the second column:

Consent: your consent to one or more specific purposes

Contract: entering into a contract with you or performing a contract with you

Legal obligation: we’re required by law to do this

Vital interests: to protect your own or another individual’s vital interests (e.g. life or death situation)

Legitimate interests: we’ve identified this as a legitimate interest of ours or a third party; we consider that use of your personal information is necessary to achieve that legitimate interest; and we’ve balanced all that against your interests, rights and freedoms

The third column gets a bit more technical. Where we’re dealing with sensitive personal information we need not one legal basis but two, from a different list (and the list is a lot longer).

The main ones are:

Explicit consent: your explicit consent to one or more specific purposes

Legal claims: to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim

Legitimate activities of a not-for-profit body: to carry out, with safeguards, our legitimate charitable activities with a philosophical aim, where our use relates solely to members or people who have regular contact with us, and we do not disclose personal data outside CISV without your consent

Prevention/detection of unlawful acts: this is where we must use personal information without consent so as not to prejudice preventing or detecting unlawful acts

Research, statistics and archiving in the public interest: for research and statistical purposes, with safeguards; our use is proportionate, respects privacy rights and has suitable and specific safeguards

Vital interests: that’s the same as column 2 except it has to be where the individual is incapable (physically or legally) of giving consent.

You can find more details on the ICO website at https://ico.org.uk

A summary of the purposes for which we use personal information and the legal bases for our use are set out below.

d.        Legitimate interests

Where the use of information is based on the legitimate interests condition, the legitimate interests pursued

Our legitimate interests are set out in section d above. In summary they are to:

·        operate programmes as part of our charitable activities; this includes sharing of your personal information with CISV National Associations and Chapters and host families to deliver programmes

·        keep accounts and records as a matter of good practice where it is not a legal requirement

·        measure and manage the quality of our programmes

·        carry out direct marketing; where you consent to direct marketing from your local CISV National Association/Chapter or the Alumni Association, we will share your details with them for their direct marketing purposes (which in the case of the Alumni Association, includes profiling)

·        handle and seek to resolve any incident, complaint or claim

·        operate myCISV, which allows participants to keep in touch with each other in a safe online setting and helps with our internal administration, and

·        conduct research as part of our charitable activities; research projects may involve third parties such as universities.

e.        Personal information collected indirectly – categories

The categories of personal information collected indirectly

We collect the following categories of personal information indirectly (e.g. from third parties):

·        If you are under the age of 18 years and a parent or carer provides us with your personal information or completes a Legal Form and (if applicable) a Health Form on your behalf, we collect the categories of personal information will be those provided by your parent/carer or those set out on the relevant form(s) (which will have their own privacy notice(s)). Please note that your personal information on Legal Forms and Health Forms will typically be collected by your National Association/Chapter. These forms are only provided to CISV International Ltd in exceptional circumstances such as an incident, complaint or claim.

·        Occasionally, if a Chapter or National Association or host family which provides your personal information on your behalf or a healthcare professional who provides information to your temporary CISV guardian if  you need medical attention during a programme or when travelling to or from a programme. In those cases we will collect the categories (sensitive) personal information provided in that situation.

f.          Recipients

The recipients or categories of recipients of the personal information, if any

We may share your personal information with:

·        service providers such as Ideagen Software Ltd who host and maintain our website and myCISV in the UK on our behalf

·        travel providers such as airlines

·        affiliate organisations and their staff/volunteers and host families who are involved in administering the programme (note that host families will be given a copy of the Legal Form and Health Form)

·        our Alumni Association (see “CISV affiliate organisations and partners”) (with your consent)

·        financial organisations (if and as necessary to process payment)

·        consultants and professionals (if required in relation to the programme or the particular situation – for example if you become ill, we may need to share your sensitive personal information with a local healthcare provider)

·        research partners in relation to a research programme (see “CISV affiliate organisations and partners”), and

·        other recipients as permitted or required by applicable law.

g.        Transfers outside of the European Economic Area (EU member states, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) (EEA)

Where applicable, the fact that personal information is to be transferred to a third country or international organisation and the existence or absence of an adequacy decision by the European Commission, or in the case of transfers subject to appropriate safeguards or non-repetitive, limited transfers based on compelling legitimate interests, reference to the appropriate or suitable safeguards and the means by which to obtain a copy of them or where they have been made available.

We operate in 69 countries. We will transfer your personal information to CISV National Associations and Chapters and host families that are outside the European Economic Area to the extent necessary to administer your participation in the programme. For example if you live in Belgium but are travelling to Australia, the Belgian and Australian National Associations may be involved, as well as the Chapters nearest to where you live and to the programme, as will any host family you stay with in Australia. The basis for those transfers is that they are necessary for contract purposes, namely:

·        the performance of a contract between you and us, or

·        the implementation of pre-contractual measures taken at your request, or

·        for the conclusion or performance of a contract concluded in your interests between us and another person.

Using the settings in myCISV, you may consent to your personal information being accessed by fellow participants or our members of staff/volunteers, who may be anywhere in the world. We have safeguards in place so that under-16s cannot make their contact details visible to other participants, and all participants have full control over who they share their personal information with. Please see our terms and conditions for further details.

Please note that the absence of an adequacy decision and appropriate safeguards creates possible risks that you will not have the same rights and remedies in respect of the processing of your personal information once it is the US or other non-EEA countries as you would have in the EEA.

In terms of appropriate safeguards, we have we have a standard contractual clause (“model clause”) contract in place between CISV International and our Alumni Association in the USA – for a copy please contact us. Our contact details are in the “Identity and contact details” section a above. Please make it clear you want a copy of this contract, for example by putting “CISV model clause contract” in the subject line of the email. Thank you

 

Further information

Here is a short explanation of the options for transferring personal information to a third country or international organisation.

First, an “adequacy decision” which is a legal decision by the European Commission that adequate protection is provided by a country, territory, specified sector(s) or an international organisation. It is based on an assessment of the following: (a) rule of law and other legal considerations (b) existence and functioning of an independent supervisory authority and (c) international commitments and obligations/participation.

Secondly “appropriate safeguards” which may take several forms, including:

·        standard data protection clauses adopted by the European Commission (known as “model clauses”) (see above – there is one in place between CISV International and our Alumni Association)

·        other contract clauses that have been approved by the Information Commissioner

·        “binding corporate rules” which apply to a group of companies or enterprises engaged in a joint economic activity, and

·        an approved code of conduct or approved certification mechanism, which binds the organisation in the third country and can be enforced.

Thirdly, “derogations” such as consent or contact performance (which we rely on for myCISV and programmes respectively).

h.        Storage period

The period for which the personal information will be stored, or if that is not possible, the criteria used to determine that period

The period for which we will store personal information is based on our need to fulfil our legitimate operational needs, comply with applicable law, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

·        To allow participants to claim participation and for child protection reasons, we keep a record of which programme you attend indefinitely.

·        Your local CISV National Association/Chapter may retain a copy of the Legal Form for the purpose of legal claims. CISV International Ltd will only retain a copy of the Legal Form and any Health Form in exceptional circumstances such as an incident, complaint or claim. Health Forms (paper) are normally returned to the participant or their parent/legal guardian after the end of the programme, and any electronic copies are deleted at the same time.

i.          Individual rights

The existence of the right to request access to and rectification or erasure of personal information or restriction of use concerning the individual or to object to use as well as the right to data portability

You have rights to make a request to us:

·        for access to your personal information

·        for rectification or erasure of your personal information

·        for restriction of processing concerning you

·        to object to our processing which is based on legitimate interests please see the “Legitimate Interests” section d. above for our reliance on this legal basis for processing

·        to object to direct marketing (including profiling)

·        to object to research

·        to port (transfer) data you have provided to us, either to you or to another employer (this means to receive the personal information which you have provided to us, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, and to have us transmit that personal information to another controller).

Where we rectify, erase or restrict your personal information, we will inform third parties who have received your personal information as required by applicable law.

These rights are more complicated than the simple summary above. To find out more about them, please visit the Information Commissioner’s website. To exercise your rights, please contact us. Our contact details are in the “Identity and contact details” section a above.

Please make it clear which right(s) you want to exercise, for example by putting “right of object” in the subject line of the email if you wish to exercise the right to object. Thank you.

j.          Withdrawal of consent

Where the use is based on consent (for ordinary or sensitive personal information), the existence of the right to withdraw consent at any time, without affecting the lawfulness of use based on consent before its withdrawal

You have a right to withdraw any consent you give us at any time.

This will not affect the legality of our consent-based use before you withdrew consent.

To exercise your right to withdraw, please contact us. Our contact details are in the “Identity and contact details” section a above.

Please make it clear you want to exercise this right, for example by putting “Withdrawal of consent” in the subject line of the email. Thank you.

k.        Complaints

The right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

You have a right to complain to the Information Commissioner, whose contact details are:

Information Commissioner’s Office
Wycliffe House
Water Lane
Wilmslow
Cheshire
SK9 5AF
England

Telephone: 0303 123 1113 (UK local rate) or +44 1625 545 700 (from outside the UK) and see https://ico.org.uk/global/contact-us/helpline/ for further options.

Please see http://ec.europa.eu/newsroom/article29/document.cfm?action=display&doc_id=50061 for a PDF list of all European data protection authorities (link correct as at 21-May-18).

l.          Information collected directly – legal or contract requirement

Whether the provision of personal information is a statutory or contractual requirement, or a requirement necessary to enter into a contract, as well as whether the individual is obliged to provide the personal information and of the possible consequences of failure to provide that information

We need all the registration details asked for on the Legal Form and Health Form to perform the programme contract (provide you with the programme) or to take steps at your request before to entering into the programme contract.

If you do not provide the personal information required in those forms, then unfortunately we will not be able to provide you with the programme. We must have certain personal information to accommodate children on international programmes, away from their parents or legal guardians, for health and safety reasons.

m.     Sources of personal information collected indirectly

The source of the personal information and if applicable, whether it came from publicly accessible sources

The sources of the personal information that CISV collects indirectly are:

·        your parent or carer, if you are under 18 years old as they will complete our Legal Form and Health Form (and may otherwise provide your personal information) on your behalf

·        a Chapter or National Association or host family which provides your personal information on your behalf

·        a healthcare professional who provides information to your temporary CISV guardian if you need medical attention during a programme or when travelling to or from a programme.

n.        Automated decision-making

The existence of automated decision-making, including profiling. This means a decision based solely on automated profiling which produces legal effects concerning the individual, and which must not be based on special categories of (i.e. sensitive) personal information without explicit consent or substantial public interest, with safeguards. Meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and the envisaged consequences of the processing for the individual must also be provided.

We do not conduct any automated decision-making in relation to this website or the programmes. All decisions are made by humans.
