You have the right to request to ask us to correct, erase, or supplement any information you have provided to us in the past. This right to correct or delete your personal data extends to third parties of CARE International Members or Affiliates to whom we have disclosed your personal information.

If you have concerns about the way that the CARE’s Climate & Resilience Academy is collecting or handling your data you can file a claim with the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC).


The legal basis on which we hold and use your data will vary depending on the activity involved. In some cases, we might hold the data because it is needed to fulfill a contract or meet our legal obligations.
