Do the board members and volunteers of Stichting Vlieg een Dier get paid?

How many days before my flight can I register as a flight partner?
Obviously the sooner we receive your registration to become a flight partner there is an increased chance that we will be able to match foundations/shelters and flight partners. It is possible to register up to the day prior to your flight, although this reduces the chances of a match. Therefore we would encourage flight partners to register as early as possible.

Why do I need to sign the Data Processor Agreement as shelter/foundation to complete my subscription?

All collection, processing, transfer and storage of personal data is regulated, and referred to simply as processing. The Data Processor Agreement shall state the purpose of the processing, what data is processed, how they shall be protected, and more.

Since Stichting Vlieg een Dier shares personal data with other foundations/shelters/persons which/who are looking for flight partners, we are legally obliged to enter into a Data Processor Agreement.

In short: A Data Processor Agreement is a legally obliged agreement with at third party  which regulates the processing of personal data.
