Your privacy is very important to AFS and we would like to inform you about our data protection practices and obtain your consent.
If you have any questions about the privacy practices of AFS Intercultural Programs, Inc. (the AFS umbrella organization based in New York) please contact us at email@example.com, or contact your local AFS organization in your country if you have questions about its privacy practices.
PII includes amongst other things your identity, your home and e-mail address, your date of birth, your (mobile) telephone number, family details, as well as answers to specific questions.
You accept that AFS may process your PII for any purpose reasonably required in connection with your service as an AFS host family and for the proper organization and fulfillment of the AFS program operations. You accept that AFS may process your PII for your further involvement and in order to keep in touch, until you notify AFS differently. You also understand that your PII will not be sold or otherwise transferred to third parties for any other purpose and that AFS will transfer and store your PII in central databases in multiple locations to ensure that the data is not lost. Currently those locations are in the United States of America, in Germany and in Thailand. These databases are restricted and can only be accessed by AFS employees, consultants, and volunteers who use such data exclusively for the management of AFS program operations.
You also accept that, in order to deliver its services, AFS may share some of your PII with third party vendors and consultants (such has website hosting and design providers and ICT services consulting firms) for the sole purpose of delivering their services to AFS. All such third parties agree to comply with applicable data protection and confidentiality laws in connection with providing their services to AFS.
AFS is committed to protecting minors who access and use AFS online application and other AFS online questionnaires and tools. If you are under age 13, please do not attempt to register for any AFS online forms, applications or questionnaire or provide any PII about yourself to us. If we learn that we have collected PII from a child under age 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible.
