According to the legislation, In Context Club Association is the data controller. To ensure the safe processing of your data, we have made every effort to implement reasonable measures to protect your personal information.

According to the law, you, the individual benefiting from our services or the person in any kind of relationship with us, are a "data subject," meaning an identified or identifiable natural person. To be completely transparent about data processing and to allow you to easily exercise your rights at any time, we have implemented measures to facilitate communication between us, the data controller, and you, the data subject.

The protection of your personal information is very important to us. Therefore, we are committed to the following principles:

Legality, fairness, and transparency - We process your data legally and fairly. We are always transparent about the information we use, and you are adequately informed.

Control belongs to you - Within the limits of the law, we provide you with the opportunity to review, modify, delete the personal data you have shared with us, and exercise other rights.

Data integrity and purpose limitation - We use data only for the purposes described at the time of collection or for new purposes compatible with the initial ones. In all cases, our purposes are compatible with the law. We take reasonable measures to ensure that personal data is accurate, complete, and up-to-date.

Security - We have implemented reasonable security and encryption measures to protect your information as best as possible. However, remember that no website, application, or internet connection is completely secure.

This Privacy Policy can change at any time. All updates and changes to this Policy are effective immediately upon notification, which we will do by posting on the website and/or notifying by email.

By communicating personal data, data subjects expressly and unequivocally agree that their personal data will enter the database of In Context Club Association for the provision of social services, fundraising activities, awareness campaigns, and information exclusively related to our projects and activities. The collected and processed personal data will not be disclosed to third parties unless In Context Club Association is obliged to disclose the data under applicable law. The requested data may include: full name, phone number, email address, home address.

Processing is done in a legal, fair, and transparent manner toward the data subject, ensuring the integrity and confidentiality of personal data, including protection against unauthorized or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction, or damage, by implementing appropriate technical or organizational measures.

We collect your information for specific and legitimate purposes, including but not limited to:

- For the conclusion or execution of a contract between you and us;

Personal data collected and used for the provision of social services, marketing activities, advertising, and information by In Context Club Association will be stored for a period of 5 years from the termination of contractual relationships or any longer period imposed by law, regulations, or applicable rules regarding the obligation to retain accounting documents or requests from public authorities. Immediately after the end of the applicable storage period, the data will be:

You will be notified of a data security breach within a reasonable time after discovering such a breach unless a competent public body determines that notification would impede a criminal investigation or harm national security.

Right to erasure - You can request the erasure of your personal data if the purpose for which it was collected no longer exists, if its processing violates legal provisions, if its processing excessively affects your interests, or if processing is based on your consent, which you have revoked.

Right to object - In case we process your personal data for the performance of tasks of public interest, for the exercise of public authority, or if we refer to the need to defend a legitimate interest, you can object to the processing of this data, to the extent that there is a prevailing legitimate interest regarding your personal data. You can revoke your consent for advertising messages without giving a reason.

Right to lodge a complaint - If you believe that we have violated Romanian or European data protection laws in the processing of your personal data, thereby infringing your rights, please contact us at to clarify your questions.

If, despite our efforts, we cannot identify you, and you do not provide us with additional information to help identify you, we are not obliged to comply with the request. You also have the right to address the Romanian National Authority for the Supervision of Personal Data Processing or a European supervisory authority.
