What information we collect
Rising Stars, Leadership Fellows, Mentors
In order for you to become a Rising Star, Leadership Fellow, or Mentor, we must collect your personal information starting at the application stage. Throughout your engagement with Wedu, we will continue to track and monitor your progress through programme-related calls, surveys, email correspondence, and meetings, where we take down qualitative and quantitative data related to your personal and professional interests, goals, and achievements. These will include but are not limited to academic achievements, graduation information, current occupation and place of work.
Funding Recipients (Rising Stars only)
If you are successful in receiving a Future Income Sharing Agreement (FISA) or scholarship, you will be asked to share with us more information, including financial details and bank information for payment processing.
Donors and partners are individuals or organizations who support Wedu’s mission, either financially or through collaborative work. The information we collect will pertain only directly to the nature of your support or our collaboration, and as needed, may be used for the purposes set out in our policy and to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce our agreements and protect Wedu’s legal rights.
Website Subscriptions, Event Attendees, and more
Those who subscribe to the general newsletter through our website or event sign up sheets and/or follow us on social media channels are agreeing to share with us general contact information (i.e. email addresses, social media usernames or handles). We appreciate your keen interest in following our activities and spreading the good word, so we strive to ensure we send content in limited amounts and frequencies to respect your digital space. This also applies to unsuccessful applicants to both our programme or organisation, and includes any information collected throughout the application and selection process.
How your information is used
The information you give us permission to use is vital to help us in the following ways:
- To find the most relevant and rewarding leadership opportunities and determine your eligibility for such opportunities;
- To refine the mentorship experience, and further develop our leadership development programmes and services;
- To help you monitor your individual leadership progress and goals;
- To manage donations and partnerships in a way that is necessary for us to fulfill any contract or obligation, as well as provide relevant updates with regards to our relationship or collaboration;
- To perform statistical analysis, market research and consulting projects from time to time, with which we may use anonymized data and share it with business partners and academic researchers.
We will contact you for your consent to share your photos, videos, and personal stories and reflections for use in social media campaigns, presentations to partners and donors, and marketing and awareness campaigns.
Wedu has not, does not, and will not ever share or sell your information to third parties.
How to view your information
Data transparency is critically important - both to us and the GDPR. We want to make this easy for you, so to view your personal information, simply ask and you shall receive! We’ll follow up as soon as possible with a detailed report on the personal information that’s stored with Wedu.
All requestors must verify they are the owner of or have legal rights to personal information before anything is distributed.
How to remove your information
You have full authority over your information, and you can ask us to remove any or all of it at any point in time.
As long as you’re involved with Wedu, we will retain your information as necessary to provide you with our services and to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce our agreements and protect Wedu’s legal rights.
Removing your information is easy - simply send us a request! Please keep in mind that the information you provide us with guarantees you access to our leadership development programmes and services. By requesting to have your information removed, you may be restricting yourself from Wedu’s programmes and thus may not be eligible for continued leadership opportunities, mentorship, or other facets of our programmes and services.
Wedu’s privacy & data protection policy is available on our website. Please feel free to read in detail. If you have any questions, concerns, or would like to learn more, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
