Thank you for showing interest in our social mission and for considering a gift!  Below we explain how we collect and use your gifts, and how we process your personal data.

 

 PAYMENT PROCESSING 

  1. For each gift, relevant personal and payment information is collected online. The website and applications are hosted by (i) our hosting provider jouwweb.be, (ii) our payment intermediary Mollie.com and (iii) the payment provider of your choice. Gifts are either directly credited on our sustainable bank account with Triodos Bank in Belgium or indirectly via our Entraide Vincentienne à l' Etranger who is entitled to deliver tax deduction certificates. 

  2. For the correct execution of your payment, you accept the general terms of the payment provider intermediary and the provider of your choice, without giving rise to liability for us for any reason whatsoever. You will receive an electronic confirmation after payment.

 

GIFT POLICY

  1. We collect all our own and gift money on a specific bank account with Triodos Bank in Belgium. On a periodic basis, international money transfers are made to our local representatives.

  2. We are acting in good faith as funding and coordinating supervising partners and cannot be held liable should your gift not be used locally according to your expectations.

  3. We have not entered into any locally legal binding commitments for the infrastructure, daily running or employment in a project.

  4. Your gift can be either without a specific purpose or with a specific purpose, if it is made for a specific order through our donation catalogue. In the latter case, we will use your money as much as possible in accordance with your preferences. However, very much will depend from the daily needs in the projects. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that your donation will effectively be used for the specific item loaded in your shopping cart. There logically is no shipment of orders to your address.

  5. Any gift is supposed to be free of charge or compensation.

  6. We may propose you to make your payment to a partner organization, in order to provide you with a tax deduction certificate, provided that the provisions of the Belgian income tax code are respected.
