Processing purpose and legitimate bases

The Salvation Army treats personal data confidentially and carefully. The Salvation Army processes personal data in connection with the following categories of goals:

  1. To give the best possible interpretation to the role of employer and to implement the employment or volunteer agreement;
  2. Responsible business operations, including the ability to comply with statutory duties or obligations;
  3. The development and implementation of policy.  

In emergency situations, for example in the case of a life-threatening situation, the basis of protection can be invoked for the person concerned or for a third party. Processing operations that do not fall under the above accounting principles can only be carried out with the unambiguous consent of the data subject.

Security and access

The Salvation Army acts responsible in accordance to the content of the General Data Protection Regulation:

  1. to promote the transparency, accuracy and completeness of the personal data processed on the basis of these regulations;
  2. that are necessary to protect the personal data contained in the file;
  3. to ensure that no more personal data is processed than is necessary for the purpose for which they are collected and that they are not used for other purposes.

The Salvation Army takes the necessary measures with regard to the security of the equipment, software and the data with which the personal registration(s) is/are conducted. Only authorized persons have access to personal data. Digital data is protected by username and password. Paper files are kept in lockable cupboards to which only authorized persons have access.

Right to adjustment, inspection and removal

Insight
You can change some of your personal details via My InSite or if that is not possible with your supervisor. You have the right to inspect or copy your personal data to the extent that they relate to yourself (with the exception of any personal notes from your managers and others).  

Adjustment and removal
You can request in writing to correct or add to your personal data if they are factually incorrect, do not serve the purpose of the processing or are being processed in violation of a legal regulation (note: you cannot perform a performance, assessment or have another interview report corrected if you disagree, but you can prepare a statement that you can have added to your personnel file).

In certain cases, you can request in writing to have your data removed. Please note: we do not have to respond to this if we still have a legitimate interest in keeping your data (longer), if this is necessary in connection with the performance of your employment contract or to comply with a legal obligation or on for another reason stated in the law. In certain cases, you may request in writing to have the data that we process from you "limited". Please note: we strive to collect as little data as possible (data minimization).

If you have given permission for the use of your data (such as for using your photo on a who's who page or on our website), you can withdraw that permission. The cancellation then applies to future use of your data.

Within four weeks of receiving the request, The Salvation Army will inform you in writing whether and to what extent the request can be met. We cannot execute your request for removal in all cases. For example, because the law requires us to keep certain data. If we do not respond to your request, you will of course hear the reason from us. You can submit your request in writing via:
