Bits of Freedom defends freedom and privacy on the internet. For its activities, websites and mailing lists, Bits of Freedom therefore applies a clear privacy policy and no general terms and conditions.

Website

To create anonymous statistics about visits to our websites, we use cookies, so-called id and session cookies. The infringement of our visitors privacy is minimized. Bits of Freedom only uses open source software Piwik, masking the last 2 bytes of the visitor's IP address and removing visitor logs older than one year. We keep the data on our own servers, which are located in the Netherlands and are managed by us. Finally, we respect Do Not Track headers. Indeed, we encourage its use and of cookie-blockers!

 

Donations

Donations can be made through MollieMore about Mollie's payment module. Data of continuous donors are managed by Bits of Freedom. Data of one-time donations are managed by Mollie.

Mailing lists

For all mailing lists, interested parties must first confirm their subscription through email. Subscribers can unsubscribe without further intervention by Bits of Freedom. Subscriber e-mail addresses are not publicly accessible. The maintenance, management and security of the mailing lists software is carried out by Bits of Freedom. Email addresses will never be shared with third parties, unless we are specifically required to do so by applicable law or court order.

IP-addresses

When placing comments under blogs, IP addresses and, when filled in by the user, email addresses, are stored. IP addresses are only stored to prevent spam. Only the WordPress users of Bits of Freedom (the permanent staff and a strict selection of volunteers) can view these IP addresses. When a visitor participates in a poll, the IP address is logged to determine that one IP address has only voted once. The IP addresses collected for a poll are permanently deleted at the moment the poll is closed.

 

Other activities

For all other activities organized by Bits of Freedom, such as the award of the Big Brother AwardsGo to the website for the Dutch Big Brother Awards, or other actions requiring the engagement of interested parties, Bits of Freedom collects as little personal information as possible and never shares these records with third parties, unless we are specifically required to do so by applicable law or court order. If people sign up for mailing lists by email, their email addresses will only be used for that specific purpose. If Bits or Freedom collaborates with other organizations in campaigns, for example in a European context, it will insist on a clear privacy policy. And the people who read this text can receive a free Bits of Freedom t-shirt, if they send an email with the subject "privacy statement" to info@bof.nlMail info@bof.nl.
