What do we collect and how long do we save the information?

The personal data information we collect and process is information about the name, social security number and contact details such as the address, telephone number and e-mail address. When donating a gift, we may also save information about the transaction (amount, time, type of transaction and type of gift). Account number is only saved for those who wish to pay by card. When a person applies for a vacancy, we also collect information about the applicant’s merits.

IAS uses personal identification numbers to avoid duplicate mailings to our donors, as this is the easiest and most effective way to avoid a donor’s appearance in our registry multiple times. For those donors we do not have a social security number, we cooperate with Bisnode to help us personalize eg. a phone number.

We save the data as long as it is necessary to carry out our work. We may save the data longer if we need it by law or to guard our legal interests, for example, whether a legal process is in progress. Your personal information may be saved for up to 36 months after we have reviewed them.

Testament (Will) cases are considered to be an agreement and are saved as long as the agreement is valid and subsequently filed.

You also have the right to have information corrected, unidentified or deleted. You also have the right to not process your personal data with automatic processes and the right to be forgotten or ported from a digital register.

Right to be forgotten

You are entitled to be removed / forgotten from our registry. But keep in mind that, in practice, there is a risk that when we buy new addresses, you will receive your address and make a new mail to you. This is because your name and address are no longer included in our register and therefore we can not save information that you do not want to be contacted by us. It may be better to tell IAS that you do not want the information or you do not want information through specific channels such as phone so we can stop sending to you in the future or until you tell us that you want them again.

If you do not want to be contacted by us at all, we can block you from all channels. We do this by adding you on to our “blocked” list so we will not be able to buy your address again.
