Privacy Policy

Free Press Unlimited respects your privacy. All personal data you provide is handled with the utmost care, remains strictly confidential and will not be passed on to third parties. We process these data in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Personal data

This privacy statement applies to the processing of personal data provided by donors, gift givers, volunteers, (freelance) employees, participants and contacts, and data acquired from visits to and use of our website.

By personal data we mean all information about an identifiable natural person (the ‘data subject’). This means information that is directly about a person or can be traced back to this person. With this privacy statement, Free Press Unlimited would like to inform you about what personal data we collect for which purposes.

Purposes of data processing

During your visit to this website, Free Press Unlimited may collect personal data about you. For example, when you subscribe to our newsletter, request information, ask a question, react on our website or establish contact with us in another way. We may also collect information that you have shared with us via social media, if you Like us, share posts, participate in a promotional activity or contact us.

Free Press Unlimited shall only use these data for the purposes described below:

1. to contact you and to inform you about Free Press Unlimited projects. For example, when you use the contact form, the donor form or subscribe to the newsletter on our website.

2. to register web statistics.

3. for the proper fulfilment of the task of the organisation. For example, the conclusion of agreements and relationship management (CRM).

Retention period

Retaining personal data may be necessary for the proper performance of the tasks of the company or to comply with legal obligations. Personal data are not kept for longer than necessary.

When you fill out the contact form on our website or send us an e-mail, then we shall keep and process the personal data you send us for as long as this is necessary. How long they are kept depends on the nature of the form or the content of the e-mail and the complete answering and handling thereof. In addition we may keep e-mails we receive insofar as this is necessary for the proper execution of our regular activities.

E-mails and Newsletters

For all our mailing lists, your e-mail address shall only be added to the list of subscribers with your consent. Every newsletter contains a clear link with which you can unsubscribe. We manage the maintenance, management and the security of software for the mailing lists ourselves.

Contact information management

We use the online crm system Action Network to manage our contact data. This software is run under our own management on the servers of Action Network.

If, in the context of our work, you have voluntarily provided us with contact information with the intention that we can reach you via these contact details, for example by providing us with a business card, we save these data for the purpose of managing our relationships.

Data from contacts can also be stored locally in the personal address books of Free Press Unlimited employees. Of course we will delete your contact information from our systems on request.

Storing data outside the European Union.

In order to administer the site and the campaign ‘A Safer World For The Truth’ we share personal data with third party service providers that perform functions on our behalf, such as the company that supplies our CRM system. They have access to personal data needed to perform their functions but may not use it for other purposes. This involves storing personal data outside of the European Union, specifically in the USA.

Furthermore, if you live in a country outside the European Union, the disclosure of your personal information as discussed above will involve storing of that information in the USA.

Where your personal information is transferred to a service provider based outside of the European Union, we will ensure that your data is protected to the same extent as in the European Union through the following safeguard:

Access to and your rights over your personal information

The personal data we hold about you is yours. You have the following rights over your information:

Special personal data

Free Press Unlimited does not collect data pertaining to political views, race, religious views, health, criminal information or other matters.


Free Press Unlimited ensures the personal data are correct and complete before these are processed. Free Press Unlimited has taken physical, technical and organisational measures to protect your personal data. We use a secure server that is accessible only to authorised persons. This should prevent personal data being accessed or modified by persons not authorised to do so.

We shall never pass on your personal data to third parties, if this does not explicitly follow our privacy statement. The only two exceptions to this are:

Our website used a reliable SSL Certificate to guarantee that your personal data do not fall into the wrong hands. We take every measure that can be reasonably expected to arrange security in the best way possible.

Social media

We have buttons for the social networks Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and LinkedIn on our website, so it is easy for you to share information about Free Press Unlimited. These buttons are bits of code from the social media themselves, and use a cookie. This cookie remembers that you are logged in so that you do not have to log in every time you want to share something on Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn.

To see what the social media platforms do with your personal data, you may inspect the privacy statements of Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Facebook and Twitter cookies are only placed if you are logged in to Facebook during a visit and have given your permission. By installing a program such as ‘Disconnect’ for Chrome and Firefox, you can switch off this feature.

In blog articles, content that has been imported from other sources or sites can be used and offered on the Free Press Unlimited website. For example, YouTube videos. Just like the social buttons, these codes often use cookies. What they do with the cookies and personal data, can be found in the privacy policy of the service concerned. That is out of our control.
