Personal data protection and security policy


We take great care to keep the personal details you provide for credit card payments confidential and secure. Find out more about our data security policies.

How can I be certain that my online payment is safe?

The ICRC takes great care to keep the details you provide for credit card payments confidential (see our Privacy policy). We use Saferpay, an online payment system which ensures an optimum level of security. To prevent fraud, your data are encrypted and then transmitted automatically and directly to the credit card issuer, who processes the payment. The padlock symbol at the bottom of your web browser shows that you are in secure mode.

If you prefer, you can make your donation by bank transfer or cheque.

How can I ensure that my personal details are not sent to third parties?

The ICRC takes great care to protect the personal data of its donors. This data is stored confidentially, and will not be used by third parties for commercial purposes.

How can I avoid being on the ICRC mailing list?

You won’t be on our mailing list unless you check the box marked “Yes, I'm interested in receiving information via email about the ICRC” on our donation or contact form. If you do check that box, you give us permission to use your e-mail address to send you our newsletter and any other important information.
