We do not send your hardware to Africa, but use the revenues for investments in digital education. These could be hardware, training, support or product development. Your contribution is reported to you very transparent in a narrative and financial report which you can use within your own Corporate Social Responsibility communication.
Data security is paramount
SiSo and Aliter Networks are our processing partner. They have ample experience with secure data wipe and an audited process chain. Certified Blancco software is used to erase all data. SiSo is registered for all important ISO certificates regarding quality management, environmental management and information security management. Aliter Networks is a certified B corporation.
Donating your hardware is free of charge
By offering their processing and data wiping services for free, SiSo and Aliter Networks contribute to optimising the revenues for DEAN. Only if the anticipated revenues are minimal (< € 500) we ask for a contribution to the transport costs.
We ask you to contact us via the form and provide some basic details about the hardware. Based on that data, we can estimate the expected residual value of the hardware.
SiSo will then contact you about the practicalities of the donation and agree a collection date with you. After collection, SiSo processes the hardware and you will receive a detailed report of the data removal and the revenue realised.
These reports can also be found on a protected page to which your organisation will have access. This way, you always have access to all documents.
