Nomadic UnityHub Foundation (a.k.a. the Foundation) is established with the mission to revive life in Bulgarian villages. It represents an innovative union which mission is to revive and inspire free lifestyle and economic independence in rural areas in Bulgaria by transforming them into social incubators for exchange of experience, knowledge, creativity, entrepreneurship and international practices.

3. How do we collect your data

Generally we collect the data:

Data from public sources/registers are limited to:

– data to contact you

When we contact you, we will tell you where we have your personal information from in case we did not collect it personally.

We note that most of our events are public and photos are being taken on most of them. This is necessary because of the nature of our activity and in achieving our mission, ideals, goals and good ideas that we want to become accessible, accepted and supported by an increasing number of people. The photos taken are only used for this purpose and the focus of the materials where you may be presented is on our goals and activities as a foundation, not on the individual. If you believe that these actions would violate your privacy in a way that is unpleasant to you, you may object to and warn us before the start of the event that you do not wish to be photographed.

Typically, the faces of the pictures are recognized and tied to the activity that we exercise and we are proud of.
