CISV International makes continual efforts to respect your privacy and to be clear with you about the type of data we will need from you, how we will use it, and for what reasons. We know how important your privacy is to you and we work with our volunteers, staff, and host families around the world to keep your information as safe and confidential as possible.
We have developed several resources to assist our National Associations, Chapters, and Volunteers in ensuring good Data Protection everywhere.
First among these is our “Data Protection Miniguide” – this document summarises and explains CISVs approach to Data Protection. This approach is based on the General Data Protection Regulation from the European Union.
Second, we have developed a document, that details how we gather, use, store, destroy, and archive the data we collect in the forms related to our international programmes. The document “Data Protection and CISV Forms” is particularly useful to the staff, leaders, and local contact persons for our programmes.
Third, we have prepared a “Data Privacy Notice Regarding Participation in CISV International Programmes” that all of our National Associations and Chapters can use and adapt to their own local and national laws to inform our participants, parents, and volunteers why we need their data and what we do with the data.
For those involved with the technical side of Data Protection, we have included a few relevant questions and answers below.
