Privacy statement and disclaimer

Wilde Ganzen Foundation (the initiator of Change the Game Academy) processes personal data and other data in accordance with the applicable legislation. In this privacy statement, the considerations involved in this data processing are established.


This privacy statement applies to the processing of personal information provided by participants, newsletter subscribers, project applicants, and our business relationships (hereinafter: personal data), as well as data obtained from people visiting and using the Wilde Ganzen websites, which includes Changethegameacademy.org.

Processing personal data

Wilde Ganzen handles personal data with confidentiality and caution. Wilde Ganzen collects personal data when you make a donation (online and in other ways), subscribe to the newsletter (your e-mail address and consent to be e-mailed), visit Wilde Ganzen events and activities, take part in a course, and register a project with Wilde Ganzen.

These data are processed for the purposes of:

  • sending the newsletter;
  • starting private initiatives (“projects”) for fundraising;
  • compliance with legal requirements;
  • addressing disputes, questions, and complaints;
  • optimising the operation of the website;
  • analysing and improving our services.

Wilde Ganzen collects data such as (the business) name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and data that are relevant if you engage in contact with us or become a participant in one of our courses.

In addition to the personal data that you provide to Wilde Ganzen yourself, we may also collect, record, and process data regarding your use of our website(s). This data pertains to the devices you use, such as a unique device ID, the version of your operating system, the settings on the device with which you visit Wilde Ganzen, as well as data regarding the use of our website, such as the time at which you visit it and the topics that you view. We also keep track of how actively our newsletter is read by tracking the number of opens and clicks.

You can also request that we delete your data from our database. In some cases, we may not be able to comply with your request. For instance, if you have donated to us in the past, the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration requires us to store agreements for seven years. In addition, if you request that we no longer approach you with marketing information, we are required to retain your name so that you can be excluded from contact regarding future campaigns. Of course, if we are unable to comply with your request, we will provide you with the reason.
