What information do we collect?
GIVEWATTS collects and uses personal information from those who receive information about the foundation's work. This includes name and address, telephone numbers, comments and e-mail addresses, gift amounts and in some cases also social security numbers.
The purpose of this personal data collection is to inform the donor about the organizations work. This is done via newsletters and via the foundation's social channels, such as Facebook and via our website.
Collection of personal data takes place through consent. This consent takes place in several different ways; by e-mail, online or physical presentations, or other contexts. It can also be done by filling out forms on the website or on other social media.
The donor has the right to take part in the information collected that concerns him, and to have it deleted from all registers, when he so wishes.
How do we use the information?
GIVEWATTS will never publish, sell, exchange, rent or distribute names (unless they have been given specifically for publication), e-mail, postal addresses or telephone numbers to our donors. GIVEWATTS will use donor contact information (email and postal address) for these purposes:
1. Distribution of newsletters.
2. Give receipts for donations, where the donor so wishes.
3. Thank donors for their donation.
4. Inform donors about upcoming fundraisers and other activities.
5. Internal analysis and registration.
6. Contact donors for changes to this policy.
We respect the donor
GIVEWATTS's fundraising work is completely dependent on donor commitment who, through their gift(s) and expressed will, wish to support the organization work. These donors are important and significant and their gifts are a prerequisite for the organization to be able to conduct its operations. It is not the size of the gift that is decisive for us, all gifts, regardless of size, are important for the GIVEWATTS’s work. The donor must be able to be sure that the funds raised are used for the purpose for which they were collected, so-called "earmarked funds". Unless earmarked or otherwise stated or communicated, the donor leaves it to GIVEWATTS to decide how the gift should be used and where it is best needed. Likewise, if the donor wishes to give his gift anonymously, this must be respected.
GIVEWATTS mainly receives gifts via sponsors, corporate sponsors, monthly donors, fundraising letters, credit card transactions, Paypal and Swish. Also through holiday and memorial gifts, wills, collections and from donors' private collections and initiatives. All access to the donor's financial information is restricted to professional personnel who must process this information. No such information is given to any person, organization or group that does not need access to this information. GIVEWATTS only uses online services whose payment management is considered secure in terms of security and good reputation.
The purification routines happen every quarter and encompasses all the systems and registers GIVEWATTS uses in its operations, and which contain personal data.
