The Organisation is entitled by law, to collect and process the aforementioned personal data disclosed by you, for the fulfillment of its purposes only, as described in detail here.

In a situation in which we collect data about your age, we will utilise this only a) to confirm that an activity is suitable for your age group, b) to record statistics (without any names connected to specific data points) about our activities so that we can improve and develop them in the future. 

In a situation in which we collect data about your gender, we will utilise this only a) to provide the most suitable accommodation for participants and b) to record statistics (without any identifying details) in order to evaluate the activity and the manner in which it was advertised. 

In a situation in which we request an Identification Card (or Passport) number, we will delete the information as soon as the activity which requires this detail has concluded.

Third party access to your personal data

The personal data collected by ‘Voci Contra Tempo’ may be disclosed or transmitted to third parties, if this is required for the fulfillment of obligations by law or is necessary for the fulfillment of the purposes and functions of the Organisation’s operations and work,  subject to relevant legislation. Some of the Organisation’s functions-in particular, technical and communications functions with regard to our website- are outsourced.  We may therefore entrust natural or legal persons (external to ‘Voci Contra Tempo’) with certain services and functions of our website and other essential technical processes.

In each case, for such issues of access to data, the Organisation will request your consent.


Retention period of personal data

The data of the individuals who receive newsletters is held for one year after the individual’s request to no longer receive the newsletter. The data of the participants in our actions are kept for five years, from their last participation, but the Organisation is entitled to keep them for up to ten years for statistical reasons and in order to maintain an archive and long-term record.
