Why We Collect Your Personal Information
CampVision is a secular volunteer-driven movement made up of individuals who share a common vision to contribute and make a difference in the lives of less-fortunate youths. We collect information about people so as to allow us to communicate with them, introduce them to our organisation, inform them of the work we do and encourage donations so we can continue to provide opportunities and a safe place for the youths from different background and social circumstances to get connected, to be empowered to live their dreams, and be leaders of their lives.
In different aspects of the work we do, we will require your information to better serve our youths, volunteers as well as donors. We generally collect the information we need to deliver and improve our programs and initiatives. We do not use the information in any way other than the purpose it is collected for.
We may also use your information for the following purposes:
- for the immediate reason for which you have provided it to us (for example, to enable us to process your request, payment, registration etc);
- to maintain contact with you about our work, to inform you about our programmes and initiatives, or to encourage you to learn about what we do;
- any other purpose directly related to our programmes and initiatives and for which you have provided consent (where it is reasonably required by law);
- to comply with requests by government agencies; and
- contact other welfare agencies (where you have agreed to).
Sometimes we may be legally required to disclose your information, for example, to government departments like Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore for submission of tax deductions.
If you are under the age of 13, please consult your parent or guardian before providing us with your personal information.
If you are under the age of 18, please consult your parent or guardian before donating to CampVision.
