INFORMATION REGARDING PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA

 For www.real-people.se, the protection of human rights is more important than anything else. This includes the protection of individuals’ integrity and personal data, which is governed by the so-called “General Data Protection Regulation”. We have elected to be transparent as to the manner in which we process personal data, e.g. in respect of our members, donors and subscribers to our newsletter. Naturally, we do so in accordance with the rules of the General Data Protection Regulation. Below, you can read how we process the personal data of various individuals, why we do so, for what period of time, and with whom we might share the personal data. www.real-people.se, is the data controller for the processing of personal data described below. All processing of personal data and marketing carried out by us takes place in accordance with the Swedish Fundraising Council’s guidelines.

WHEN WE GATHER PERSONAL DATA AND THE PERSONAL DATA WE GATHER

We gather and process your personal data in several situations, such as (i) when you make a donation to us or become a member, (ii) when you subscribe to our newsletter or sign up for one of our events, (iii) when you apply for a job or internship with us, and (iv) when we find you interesting because we think you can contribute to our activities. The information we gather normally consists of contact information such as names, telephone numbers, addresses and/or e-mail addresses. In certain cases, it also includes your title and the organisation represented by you. Depending on the purpose to be fulfilled, however, other personal data may be necessary, e.g. your personal identification number and bank account number if you make regular contributions to us via autogiro, your professional experience when you apply for a job with us or the type of business you conduct if you are a potential donor. In such case, we may also obtain information from publicly available sources. In situations where we gather personal data directly from you, i.e. when you choose to become a member, make a donation, subscribe to our newsletter, sign up for one of our events or apply for a job with us, we will tell you which information is mandatory in order for us to be able to fulfil our part of the agreement, e.g. to send a newsletter to you.

WHY WE PROCESS PERSONAL DATA, FOR WHAT PERIOD OF TIME, AND OUR LEGAL BASIS FOR THE PROCESSING

The processing of personal data is permissible only where there is a specific purpose for the processing and an applicable so-called “legal basis”. Furthermore, processing of personal data is permissible only during a limited period of time. www.real-people.se will only process your personal data for the purposes set forth below and at no time for any purpose which is otherwise incompatible with those purposes. Furthermore, we will only process personal data for the period of time set described below. Please note that we may be compelled to deviate from the time limits in the table in cases in which we must process your personal data in order to comply with, or demonstrate that we comply with, applicable legislation, e.g. the Swedish Accounting Act. In such cases, however, we will only process your personal data to the extent such laws so require or make it necessary for us to do so.
