5.2. Reasons for collecting and processing the indicated personal data:

Personal data needs submitting so that the Foundation could perform its activities, including organizing campaigns, raising funds for a person in need and verification of the credibility of the request received for launching a charity campaign to avoid misappropriation. In such cases, the collection and processing of personal data is on contractual basis and provisions, without which the services could not be provided by the Foundation. If personal data that is photos and/or another one that cannot be accepted as a contractual basis, the Foundation shall request the express, voluntary consent by the respective person.

5.3. Pursuant to the legislation it is possible that the Foundation may be requested to disclose personal data of third parties in case of a court / arbitration / enforcement / collateral process and/or by a competent authority; disclosure might be needed for the purposes of national security, law enforcement or other cases set forth in the legislation. In such cases, the processing of personal data is in compliance with the legal obligation of the Foundation. Personal data may also be disclosed if such a disclosure is reasonable and needed to protect the legitimate interests of the Foundation. Therefore, namely to avoid misappropriation of funds and the ability of the Foundation to inform the competent authorities in case of suspicion about unlawful actions, the Foundation keeps a register of its donors, beneficiaries and initiators.

The Foundation declares that it is a subject to the Measures against Money Laundering Act (MMLA) as it gets in the scope of persons indicated under Art. 4, item 28 of the Act. So, the Foundation has legal obligations and pursuant to them it may request from the donors information about the origin of funds pursuant to MMLA. If the Foundation detects a risk and/or a suspicious transaction (donation) exceeding the legal limits regulated under MMLA, more precisely, as incorporated in Art. 11 of the Act, then it may inspect that and/or notify the competent authorities. As "suspicious" and/or "risky" donations are considered : (1) performing a random operation or executing a random transaction with a value equal to or exceeding the BGN equivalent of 15 000 euros or its equivalent value in another currency, regardless of whether the operation or transaction is carried out through a single operation or transaction, or through several related operations or transactions; (2) any case of suspicion of money laundering, suspicion of terrorist funding and/or funds of criminal origin, regardless of the value of the operation or transaction, the risk profile of the customer, other conditions for applying the verification measures, or other exceptions set out in the respective law or in the guideline for its implementation. The Foundation reserves the right, subject to its legitimate interests, to inspect in case of suspicion, incl. collecting the necessary volume of personal data required under the Personal Data Protection Act, including notifying the competent authority.

The activity of the Foundation is only and solely related to charity and therefore, it exercises its rights under Art. 11, para. 5, as it may perform and/or shall be able to:

  1. identify the donors and beneficiaries by collecting full information as much as possible which will allow unambiguous identification, including information about persons exercising control without obstructing the activity of the organization, and if need be, methods and means of complex verification might be applied;
  2. check the donors and beneficiaries, partner non-governmental organizations if there is negative public information or possible coincidence with persons under Art. 4b of the Measures Against the Financing of Terrorism Act.

5.4. If the initiator/beneficiary gives their express written consent (this also refers to the cases when the consent was granted by electronic signature on the declaration) to provide photos showing the condition or the need to organize a campaign, then the initiator/beneficiary gives consent to their publication, so they could end up in a post on social networks of the initiator/beneficiary and/or another platform for marketing and/or other purposes. In such cases, the reason for collecting and processing the personal data is the express consent. The initiator, if it is different from the beneficiary, is responsible for the provided personal data of the beneficiary that can be published.

5.5. The Foundation complies with all the provisions of the Regulation and the PDPA about informing the subjects in this regard as the Foundation has notified them (the subjects) in accordance with this Policy, incl. the Foundation has waited to get voluntary consent from its initiators/beneficiaries before getting into actions to publish and organize a campaign.

5.6. In regard to item 5.4. of this Policy, due to the nature of the provided data, namely data about health status, diagnosis, social and living conditions, etc., the initiators of the respective campaign shall delete the personal data of the beneficiaries. So, when organizing a campaign, the initiators should delete the ID number, identity card data, address of the beneficiary. If this has not been done, in compliance with the regulations the Foundation has the right to delete the personal data of the persons before publishing the information. It is important for the Foundation to comply with all regulations at national and supranational level, therefore, it shall publish only data for which it has obtained voluntary consent and data that is needed for the purposes of the respective campaign/cause.

5.7. Taking into account the desire of the Foundation to organize and help people/animals in a serious/disadvantaged condition as the funds are raised for treatment/improvement in their living and social situation, the foundation has the right to publish photos that are voluntarily provided to it by the initiator and photos proving the respective diagnosis/condition to third parties, solely for the purpose of campaign transparency. Hence, after obtaining an express and voluntary consent, the Foundation can also publish results on spending the funds to the donors to prove that the money was allocated only and solely for the purpose of improving the health, social, living conditions, for public works, renovation and/or other if money has been raised for that.

6.3. Donors can receive emails containing information about the campaign – funds raised, treatment of the beneficiary, their current condition and other public data uploaded to the website of the Foundation.

6.4. The Foundation shall store personal data for a period it is needed for to achieve the goals it was collected for, including the compliance with the regulations.

The initiators/beneficiaries understand and declare, through the adoption of this Policy, that after implementing the request to delete the personal data provided to the Foundation, the Foundation shall delete the respective campaign/cause so that it would not be able to raise funds and/or dissiminate it publicly.

This rule shall also apply when the initiator is different from the beneficiary but it has requested their personal data to be deleted.
