2. General Information and Our Commitment to Data Protection
The following overview informs you about our approach to process personal data information when you visit our website. Personal information is any information that personally identifies you.
It is important for dropforlife that you understand how information about you is used and shared. We appreciate your trust in us that we do this carefully and reasonably. We treat personal data confidentially and in accordance with the data regulations of Switzerland (DSG) and any applicable foreign data protection law, in particular of the EU (DSGVO).
We would like to emphasize that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can be subject to security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
3. How We Collect Data
We collect personal data when you voluntarily submit it to us. For example, this may involve data that you enter in a contact or donation form.
Other data is also automatically collected by our IT systems when you visit the website. These are mainly technical data (e.g. Internet browser, operating system or time of the page call). This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.
For example, as a donor you can provide us with personal data (such as name, address, e-mail address, telephone numbers and/or credit card information). When a donor or visitor to the Site contacts us by e-mail, they may provide us with their e-mail address and name. This information is necessary in order for us to process your donations or requests.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Some of the data is collected in order to ensure that the website is free of errors. Other data may be used to analyze your user behavior.
We collect information primarily to receive financial support, make our charitable projects a success, and inform you about our projects and activities. We also use information for analytical purposes (to respond to requests for information and improve our website, support base and reach).
We do not trade, share or sell any information you provide to us with other companies that intend to use it only to market their products or services to you.
