We process your personal information for the following purposes:

We register information about you in order to communicate with you, inform you about our work and, if you are a member of the association or a donor, to charge an annual membership fee or a monthly donation fee.

Legitimate interests
As mentioned above, our processing of your personal data takes place on the basis of the balance of interests rule in Article 6 (1) of the Data Protection Regulation. 1, letter f.

The legitimate interests are to be able to inform you about the work that you support, either as a member, donor, volunteer or sponsor.

In connection with the work of the board, the information about the board is collected with the legitimate reason and purpose to be able to run the association and have an active board with decision-making rights, which can sign relevant and necessary documents in connection with the operation (e.g. agreements with the bank, sponsors, cooperation agreements, insurances etc).

The association stores and processes information about the following groups;

  • Members/donors
  • Volunteers
  • Sponsors
  • Board members

For the first three groups, we collect general information. All information is collected with the consent and directly from the person to whom the information relates.

Members/donors: The general information collected for members/donors is name, address, email address, telephone number and payment information.

The association does not have access to the members’ payment information. Upon your registration of payment information, a third party approved in accordance with international security standards (PCI DSS – Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) registers and stores the necessary payment information for use in collecting subscriptions.

For volunteers and sponsors, only name and email addresses are collected.

For the board name, address and e-mail addresses are collected.
In connection with the signing of important documents, sensitive personal information is collected from the board, such as: CPR number, copy of passport / driving license / health insurance certificate.
These documents are deleted immediately after active and relevant use and are not posted on dropbox, with whom we do not have a data processor agreement, and where we therefore do not store sensitive personal information.

For information about the processing of data in connection with our Facebook profile, please refer to Facebook as data controller. See

We do not pass on information about you to facebook.

We do not collect information on members, volunteers or sponsors who, according to the Personal Data Regulation, are described as sensitive.

Members who receive one-way communication as newsletters receive it only with consent. This consent may be withdrawn at any time.
Unsubscription from our newsletter service can be done directly to the association or digitally via the unsubscribe newsletter option in the most recently received newsletter.

The information collected is stored in the association’s membership systems, which are hosted services (data processor) and with whom the association has a data processing agreement approved according to GDPR. These data processors are: Donorbox ( and mailchimp (

None of the information collected by the association is passed on to a third party.

We only store your personal information for as long as and if there is a legitimate reason for this, as described in this personal data policy.

We collect, store, record, organize, structure or delete personal data using’s systems. This data may be located in emails. We therefore have an approved data processing agreement with and do not store information longer than necessary, and in relation to financial and legal requirements. As a general rule, emails are deleted after 5 years.

It is the personal data controller’s assessment that the storage of the collected data takes place with the necessary security, as data is protected by firewalls, antivirus systems (TotalAV) and access can only take place after encrypted login on the mentioned data systems.

Only the personal data controller has access to these logins. Log-in is changed at regular intervals to avoid abuse.

In addition to the above persons, the companies where the member database is hosted have access to data. Reference is made to the data protection plan of these companies.

For the collection of data relating to users of our Facebook profile, please refer to Facebook’s personal data policy at

There is an ongoing monitoring of possible security flaws in the association’s databases. This is done in collaboration with the companies where the databases are hosted. In the event of a security leak, the Danish Data Protection Agency and the persons covered by the leak will be informed.

The contact person for the Danish Data Protection Agency is the personal data controller in the association.

The association’s procedures and processing of data are reviewed every six months to ensure that new initiatives and changes in the regulation are implemented in a timely manner.

We do not transfer your personal information to recipients outside the EU and the EEA.
