The address of our site: https://afrikaleaks.com.


Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, otherwise known as the General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter referred to as the GDPR) sets the legal framework applicable to the processing of personal data.

The DPMR reinforces the rights and obligations of data controllers, processors, data subjects and data recipients.

In the case of our activity, we are required to process personal data.

For a good understanding of this policy it is specified that :

the “data controller”: Afrikaleaks

Subcontractor” means any natural or legal person who processes personal data on behalf of Afrikaleaks.

Persons concerned”: refers to Afrikaleaks’ clients and/or contacts.

Recipients”: refers to natural or legal persons who receive personal data from Afrikaleaks. Recipients of the data can therefore be employees of Afrikaleaks as well as external organizations (partners, exhibitors, banks, speakers, etc.).

Article 12 of the GDMP requires that data subjects are informed of their rights in a concise, transparent, comprehensible and easily accessible manner.


The purpose of this policy is to satisfy the obligation of information to which Afrikaleaks is bound under the RGPD (article 12) and to formalize the rights and obligations of its customers and contacts with regard to the processing of their personal data.


The present policy is intended to apply within the framework of the implementation of all personal data processing relating to customers and contacts of Afrikaleaks.

Afrikaleaks makes every effort to ensure that data is processed within the framework of clear internal governance. However, this policy only covers processing for which Afrikaleaks is responsible for processing and does not cover processing that is not created or operated outside of Afrikaleaks’ governance rules (so-called “shadow IT” processing).

The processing of personal data may be managed directly by Afrikaleaks or through a processor specifically designated by Afrikaleaks.

This policy is independent of any other document that may apply within the contractual relationship between Afrikaleaks and customers or contacts.


No processing is carried out within Afrikaleaks regarding customer and contact data if it does not involve personal data collected by or for our services or processed in connection with our services and if it does not comply with the general principles of the DPMR.

For a proper understanding of this policy it is specified that :

Games & contests

Prospecting, generally by e-mail, SMS, telephone, etc.
The data is collected according to the cases of use in opt-in or opt-out.

The data is usually collected when registering for the event (directly or via a partner) or during the event itself (newsletter, questionnaire, business card, dedicated mobile applications, …).
