Privacy Policy

In order to comply with Europe’s privacy policies (GDPR) and Switzerland’s Federal Act on Data Protection (FADP), we are providing the following disclosure about the data collected by and other sites we own and operate and how it is used. This Privacy Policy informs you about the personal data we process, the purpose of processing, and the rights of individuals whose data we process. Please note that additional privacy policies or legal documents may apply to specific offers and services.

Your privacy is important to us. The Mental Health Initiative is committed to respecting your privacy and complying with all applicable laws and regulations regarding the collection and use of personal information. This Privacy Policy applies to our website, as well as other sites we own and operate.

Information We Collect

We collect two types of information: voluntarily provided information and automatically collected information.

Voluntarily provided information refers to any information you knowingly and actively provide us when using our services or participating in promotions. This may include personal details such as name, address, date of birth, payment information, and usage information.

Automatically collected information refers to data automatically sent by your devices when accessing our products and services. This includes standard data provided by your web browser, such as IP address, browser type, visited pages, and other details about your visit. We may also collect error data if you encounter any issues on our site.

Please note that user-generated content, such as materials submitted for publication on our website or social media channels, becomes publicly accessible and may be viewed by third parties not covered by this privacy policy.

Use of Information

We may collect personal information from you when you use our website or contact us via email, social media, or other technologies. We may combine voluntarily provided and automatically collected information with general information or research data from trusted sources to improve our site and your experience.

We use your information for various purposes, including donation processing, event registration, responding to inquiries, fundraising, monitoring and evaluating our services, market research, profiling, and analysis. However, you can object to the use of your information for market research, profiling, and analysis.

Security of Your Personal Information

We take commercially acceptable measures to protect your personal information from loss, theft, unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use, or modification. While we strive to protect your information, no method of transmission or storage is 100% secure, and we cannot guarantee absolute data security.

You are responsible for the security of your own information, including selecting a secure password and ensuring its confidentiality. Please do not make your personal information publicly available through our platform.

Retention of Personal Information

We retain your personal information only for as long as necessary for the purposes stated in this privacy policy. If your personal information is no longer required, we will delete or anonymize it. However, we may retain your personal information for legal, accounting, reporting, archiving, or research purposes as required by applicable laws and regulations.

Disclosure of Personal Information to Third Parties

We may disclose personal information to third parties, including parent, subsidiary, or affiliate companies, third-party service providers, employees, contractors, related entities, agents, business partners, credit reporting agencies, courts, tribunals, regulatory authorities, and law enforcement officers, as required by law or for the purposes stated in this privacy policy.

Some of the third-party service providers we currently use include Google Analytics. We will perform any international transfers of personal information in accordance with applicable laws and protect the transferred information as described in this privacy policy.

Your Rights and Controlling Your Personal Information

By providing personal information to us, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of your information in accordance with this privacy policy. However, you have the right to:

  • Access the personal information we hold about you
  • Correct any inaccurate, out-of-date, incomplete, irrelevant, or misleading information we hold about you
  • Object to the use of your information for market research, profiling, or analysis

Business Transfers

In the event that we or our assets are acquired, or if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, your personal information may be included among the assets transferred to any parties who acquire us.
