Who we are


The address of our website is the following:




Caritas Mauritius is a non-governmental organization. This privacy policy applies to Caritas Mauritius.

The confidentiality of the information collected from all the people we come in contact with is very important to us. In this Privacy Policy, we describe how we collect, use and protect the personally identifiable information you have provided to us. By providing us with personally identifiable information, you agree to the use of this information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use, which you may also access from our website.

What information do we collect?


Caritas Mauritius collects some of your personal information when, for example, you make a donation, ask for information, you register for an event. Some of this information is provided to you directly, such as your name, email address, and phone numbers. You provide us with this information directly and voluntarily. Caritas Mauritius uses cookies, web beacons or any other indirect electronic means to collect personally identifiable information about individuals. Cookies are small files containing a string of characters identifying your browser. Caritas Mauritius uses cookies to provide a better user experience for registered users who download publications and then return to our website. You can reset your browser to refuse cookies or to notify you when they are sent. Please note that by disabling cookies you will not have access to all the features available on our website.

How do we use your information?


Caritas Mauritius uses your personally identifiable information only to respond to your direct requests for information, requests to attend or attend a seminar or other event, to review your application for employment or, once employed, to internally process your personally identifiable information. Personally identifiable information will only be retained as long as the original purpose for which it was collected remains applicable.


Will we share your information with third parties?


As a non-governmental organization, we may share your personally identifiable information with our partners to respond to your requests. However, Caritas Mauritius will not intentionally sell or transmit your personally identifiable information to third parties for the purposes of sale or marketing. The only instances where Caritas Mauritius may provide personally identifiable information to a third party are where you have expressly accepted such disclosure or where Caritas Mauritius is compelled by a court order or other legal process to disclose your information. If Caritas Mauritius shares your personally identifiable information with a third party agent, RGP remains liable under the Data Protection Act (“Principles”) if the third party processes such personally identifiable information in a manner inconsistent with the principles.


What about sensitive personal information?


Sensitive personal information or data refers to certain personal information that European legislation and other data security laws offer special protection due to the nature of the information and the increased risk it entails for the individual.
Sensitive personal information includes social security numbers or other identities, data about your personal life (including health, genetic and biometric information), racial or ethnic origins, nationalities, political affiliations, affiliations religious, sexual orientations or any other similar information. Caritas Mauritius does not generally collect sensitive personal information. If we collect sensitive personal information from you, we will do so only with your express and prior permission and our understanding of how we intended to use that information. However, if you voluntarily provide us with sensitive personal information on an unsolicited basis, you agree to allow us to use such information for purposes consistent with applicable law and this Privacy Policy.


Do we allow you to access or modify your personal information?


Yes. Caritas Mauritius allows you to access, correct, update or delete any personally identifiable information you have provided to us through our website. If you wish to access, correct, update or delete your personally identifiable information, please contact Caritas Mauritius, 1, rue d’Estaing, Port Louis, Mauritius.


What happens in case of data breach?


In case of violation and unauthorized access, collection, processing, publication or similar unjustified disclosure of information, Caritas Mauritius will take all reasonable steps to mitigate any damages incurred. Caritas Mauritius will inform the data subject of the violation and, where appropriate, the appropriate authorities. The above notification may include a report on the circumstances in which the violation occurred, any damage resulting from the violation and the measures taken by Caritas Mauritius to limit the damage.


What about unsolicited information?


Caritas Mauritius will process all unsolicited information – information we have received but not requested – with all reasonable safeguards to maintain the safety of the person who provided it. Caritas Mauritius will determine whether the information is necessary to achieve the purpose (s) for which the unsolicited information was collected, and whether the information was provided with the consent of the individual.
If the unsolicited information does not meet the above standards, then it will be destroyed or de-identified (made anonymous so that the information can not be attributed to a specific individual) in order to protect the privacy of the individual.

Links to sites outside ours


Our website may contain links to other websites. However, Caritas Mauritius does not control these sites or their privacy practices. Please note that personally identifiable information you provide to websites, other than ours, is not covered by this Privacy Policy. We encourage you to review the privacy policy of any company or website before submitting your personal information.


What about data security?


Caritas Mauritius has put in place commercially reasonable technological and operational security measures designed to protect personally identifiable information. Only authorized Caritas Mauritius employees have access to your personally identifiable information, and these employees are required to treat such information as confidential.
