What information do we collect?
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.
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.
