Privacy Policy Trast Insamlingsstiftelse

Revised and accepted by the board at 20190827

What is in this policy?

This policy describes how Trast insamlingsstiftelse (Trast in the remaining document) manages personal data for you as a customer. Your integrity and privacy is an integral part of our core business and we take elaborate and documented steps to make sure your personal data is safe with us and treated according to current data protection legislation and recommendations, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation GDPR.

Personal data for customers
To provide its services Trast collects and store national identification numbers and links them to public online accounts using strong digital identification. These links are very sensitive and Trast takes every precaution to assert that they remain confidential.

Trast is a trust as defined in Swedish law and one of the statutes defines that personal data cannot be sold to external parties or made use of in any commercial way. The only time the links are shared outside the trust is when prompted by an ongoing investigation by national or international law enforcement where the identity of an account is required to investigate potential criminal actions.

Personal Data Controller

Trast Insamlingsstiftelse c/o Alberius, Djurgårdsvägen 1, 75646 Uppsala is the data protection officer for Trast and is responsible for processing the personal data collected from customers.

Who can access your personal data?

The Trast organisation and IT is designed and built from the ground up with the GDPR in mind and Trast has also a designated data protection officer. In the cases where Trast uses external providers to process data on our behalf we have entered into contracts with them to assert adequate data protection according to this policy.

In cases where data needs to be used outside its primary use, e.g. operational metrics and other statistics, it will be anonymized.
