Handling of Personal Data (GDPR)
Personal data is processed in accordance with applicable laws and other relevant regulations. Personal data is collected through the Foundation’s application process, primarily via the Foundation’s application form.
The collected data may include name, address, date of birth, position, and workplace. This information is required to manage applications. All applications are voluntary with the purpose of applying for research grants. Personal data is used, as previously mentioned, to evaluate applications and for analytical purposes within the Foundation. Data in the research description is handled by the Foundation’s Technical and Scientific Committee, board, and office with high integrity. In some cases, where specific expertise is required for evaluation, information may also be shared with external parties.
The collected data may, if a grant is awarded, be shared with authorities in accordance with applicable laws. Among other things, information about awarded grants is published on the Foundation’s website, including the recipient’s name, university affiliation, application title, a layman’s description, and the awarded amount. This is done in consultation with the applicant and aims to inform about the Foundation’s grant activities and fulfillment of purposes, expected to benefit the researcher/grant recipient.
You have the right to withdraw your consent to the processing at any time by sending a written and signed request to the Foundation. For further information about the Foundation’s handling of personal data, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
