Privacy statement


Your privacy is important to the Clinton Young Foundation. We process personal data and other data carefully and in accordance with applicable laws and regulations to protect your privacy. In this privacy statement, you can read about what you can expect from us, and what rules we adhere to.


This privacy statement is from the Clinton Young Foundation, based in the Netherlands, an official foundation, registered in Dieren, the Netherlands, registered in the Trade Register of the Chamber of Commerce under number 60425768 (hereinafter: “the Foundation”). This statement applies to any processing of personal data both online and offline. This concerns the processing of personal information provided by donors, relations and volunteers, as well as the data obtained from visiting and using the Foundation’s website.

Data processing

We maintain a donor administration and an administration in which the personal details of relationships are saved. A relation is a person who is known to the Foundation (for example through participation in a campaign, a newsletter subscription, a help offer or an information request), but who is not a donor. We record personal data of volunteers in the volunteer administration.

The Foundation makes people aware of injustices in death penalty cases in the United States and calls on them to take part in our actions through certain actions and campaigns. The work of the Foundation is mainly financed by donations from donors. We collect personal data (name and e-mail address) to inform you about our promotions, campaigns, (the achievement of) our goals, and for marketing purposes, such as a donation or a request to increase the contribution.

The collection of personal data is done via the website when you sign up for our e-mail newsletters, when you sign up as a donor or as a volunteer, or when you send us a written (including e-mail) help offer.

Financial data and data relating to a transaction, donation or payment are collected to carry out the agreement (donation or purchase of letter). This information will not be provided to third parties for commercial purposes.

In short, we process personal data for the performance of an agreement or a legal obligation, based on permission and for the legitimate interests of the Foundation: the fulfillment of our goals.

Processors and third parties

The Foundation does not use service providers for the execution of our services. The Foundation has therefore not made any contractual agreements with parties that process personal data for the Foundation.

The Foundation uses various payment services for online payments. PayPal’s privacy policy applies to all PayPal transactions and the iDEAL privacy policy applies to all iDEAL transactions.

No personal data is transferred to a company or branch in a country outside the European Union that does not have an adequate level of protection and does not meet the other obligations under the AVG.

Contact with donors and relations

E-mail (newsletter) If you have provided your e-mail address to the Foundation as a donor or interested person in the form of a subscription to our newsletter, you will be informed by e-mail about our work, to request your support for campaigns, to inform you about (the fulfillment of) our goals, and incidental requests for contributions. If you want to receive less or no more e-mail, you can unsubscribe from these e-mails at any time via the unsubscribe option in every message you receive or via our contact form.

Social media

The Foundation is active on various social media channels. The ‘Clinton Young Foundation’ accounts on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube and Instagram are managed by the board and by volunteers who have received explicit permission from the board.


The Foundation does not use automated decision-making (including profiling).

Recruitment and selection

If you want to qualify for a voluntary position with the Foundation, the Foundation will receive your personal information. The Foundation handles the (personal) data of all its applicants with care during recruitment and selection procedures and only uses them to assess the suitability of the candidates. This personal data is not stored any longer than necessary.

Photos and images

In all cases, the Foundation handles photos and images with care. Photos and images are made during (regional) events, lectures and promotions to record the event and to give atmospheric impressions on our website and / or social media. As soon as the news value of the image material has disappeared, only (part of) the photos are stored internally for historical purposes. We will ensure, for as much as possible, that the photos that we publish do not show identifiable people who have not given explicit permission for publication to the Foundation.

Are you still recognizable on an image, but do you not appreciate this? Let us know immediately and the image material will be removed at your request.
