The director has the ultimate responsibility for the processing of personal data in the
Collection of personal information
We gather full name, address, telephone number and e-mail address from our donors
in order to offer adequate information relevant to you as a donor. It is voluntary to give
us your personal information. If you want to contribute as an anonymous donor, that is
fully possible. Contact us by phone or email. The Helpful Cow / Europa i Fokus takes seriously
the trust you place in us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the
personal information you submit to our website. Your personal information is stored in a
secure database, to which only employees and volunteers with permission from the
director have access.
The information is not shared with anyone outside the organization, with the exception
a third party when it comes to obligations such as tax reporting. We send out our
magazine twice a year, which you at any time can reserve yourself against. In regard to
the magazine we send a list of the names and addresses to an advertising agency. We
send the list through a program that encrypts the information. The agency is required by
contract, to keep the information received on behalf of The Helpful Cow/ Europa i Fokus confidential and
may not use it for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing
for The Helpful Cow / Europa i Fokus.
When you sign up as a donor, you give consent to each of the areas in which you allow
the organization to use the information to for example send you our magazine, letters
of thanks, funding information etc. You may contact us at any time and reserve yourself
against any types of inquiries from us.
When you actively end your engagement, we will immediately delete your personal data
from our database.
If you don not actively end your engagement, we will keep your personal data in our
database for 3 years after your last donation. Then we will delete your information.
To ensure that personal data is kept for no longer than necessary, The Helpful Cow/ Europa i Fokus
have put in place a data retention policy that we will review regularly. This policy shall
consider what data should/must be retained, for how long, and why.
The Helpful Cow/ Europa i Fokus shall ensure that personal data is limited to what is adequate, relevant
and necessary in relation to the purposes for which it is processed.
It is important for you to be aware of the many rights you have in respect of the personal
information we hold about you. These rights include:

The right to restrict the processing of personal data.
The right to object to the processing of your personal data.
