What is personal data?

Personal data is any information related to a person, that identifies them or can make them identifiable. There is a wide variety of information that is considered personal data, for example, names, contact information, identification numbers, such as ID, location data, or online identifiers often called cookies.

The law obliges those who use this type of data to take certain measures to protect them. In this privacy statement we explain how SCI Madrid protects and guarantees the security of your personal data.

What does personal data processing mean?

The processing of personal data refers to any interaction with the information, including, among other processes, the consultation, collection, exchange, storage, transfer or analysis. Likewise, any operation or set of operations carried out on personal data, whether by automated procedures or not. This includes, among others, the processes of collection, registration, conservation, modification, consultation, communication by transmission, interconnection and analysis.

Why do we need your personal data?

When you request to work with SCI Madrid as a partner or volunteer, you have to provide certain personal data so that we can process your request and the relevant procedures.

What personal data will SCI Madrid process?

We process personal identifying data such as name and surname, ID, contact information; or curricular data such as social circumstances, academic and professional data.

What do we use your data for?

How long do we keep the data for?

The personal data provided will be kept until the interested party requests its deletion.

What is the legal basis for processing your data?

The legal basis for data processing is the consent granted by the interested party in the application for registration as a partner or volunteer.

What if I choose not to provide my personal data?

Refusal to process your data would entail the impossibility of sending the requested information.

If you choose not to provide us with your personal data, or to limit the processing of the necessary personal data, it could prevent us from fulfilling our contractual obligations, as well as meaning you would have to manage your own volunteer application.

What are your rights when you provide us with your data?

  • To know if we are using your data or not.
  • To access your personal data.
  • To request to update your data if it is inaccurate.
  • To request to delete your data if it is no longer needed for the purposes  they were collected, or if you withdraw consent.

  • To carry your data, which will be provided in a structured format, in common use or machine readable.
  • To file a claim with the Spanish Data Protection Agency or competent control authority, if you think that we have not dealt with the data correctly.
  • To revoke consent for any treatment for which you have consented, at any time.

You can exercise all the above rights or ask any questions regarding the treatment of your personal data, by contacting SERVICIO CIVIL INTERNACIONAL (SCI Madrid) at Calle Leganitos 35, 5ºB, 28013 Madrid (Spain), as well as by email addressed to a oficina@ongsci.org.

Do not forget to accompany your request with a photocopy of your ID or equivalent identification document so that we can verify your identity.

And what if I’m a minor?
