As Art.4 GDPR defines ‘personal data’ means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
Information given to us
We do not collect any personal information from our website visitors unless they explicitly and intentionally provide it. No personal information is collected about you if you are just paying our website a visit, however, we work with Google Analytics, https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/, as well as with Facebook Pixel, https://www.facebook.com/legal/FB_Work_Privacy both of which must be able to give you the details.
There are two ways in which you can explicitly and intentionally give us personal information or authorise us to collect it.
E-mail or newsletter information request
Our site contains links enabling you to contact us by e-mail in order to ask questions, to request information and documents or to let us know your comments and suggestions. When you register you must state whether you accept this type of contact. If you accept, we may ask you for further information such as your name and telephone number in order to fulfil your request.
We will only send you information about our projects if you have authorised us to do so. You are free to change your mind at any point by unsubscribing via the link in our marketing e-mails (normally at the foot of the e-mail), or by contacting our Legal Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How will we use the personal information that we gather, and who will we share it with?
When you provide Humanium with any personal information, we treat it in accordance with our legal obligations.
The principal use of the information that you give to Humanium is to:
- communicate with you
- provide you with information about Humanium and our projects.
Note, that in case you provide your credit card data, this is not shared with Humanium but with your bank/payment providers only.
We will ensure that all personal information is stored safely in accordance with the legal obligations that Humanium agreed to (Swiss law, notably the federal law on data protection), https://www.admin.ch/opc/en/classified-compilation/19920153/index.html.
In case you apply to work with us and provide your CV, be ensured that this follows our retention policy and your CV and email is deleted immediately, in case of an unsuccessful application, otherwise will remain with us for your employment with us.
To send answers and updates
We generally answer all questions, enquiries about Humanium and our projects that we receive through email. We also may use these mails in order to improve our projects and our website. We frequently store contacts in order to send individual updates or any other relevant information concerning our projects.
Transferring your personal data
Your personal data are safe with Humanium and we do not send them to any third parties.
Please believe that we have put in place security measures to prevent loss, theft or alteration of any personal data that we receive from you. However, like any other transmission made through the internet, a risk remains regarding sending personal information.
You have a say on your personal information and can ask that any inaccurate information about you is corrected. We encourage you to make use of this, not at least also to help us to be a good servant of your data.

Any changes to this Policy shall be subject to an email/newsletter update.
