What data do we collect?

The main type of personal data we may process is donor information such as names and personal identity numbers, as well as contact information, including addresses, phone numbers and email addresses. We also collect information about the qualifications of candidates who have applied for a job, internship or project grant from Ge Effektivt. When you contact Ge Effektivt, we process the personal data relevant to your enquiry. We will store data for as long as required to render a service you have requested or for which you have given your consent. We may store data longer if required by law or to protect our legitimate interests, for example, during ongoing legal proceedings.

What do we use the data for?

We will enter your personal data in our database when you make donations, order materials or subscribe to newsletters via our website, or when you contact us by phone or email. We use the personal data you provide to process enquiries and for our own statistical purposes.

The personal data may also be used for information-processing purposes, following up and improving the activities of GE, and to defend the organisation's rights. We also collect data to measure our impact, e.g. to find out the number of people who attend our events or if we have impacted someone's career choice or donation decisions. To best serve our donors and improve on our service, our employees, volunteers, or board members might reach out through email or other conventional channels.

When you apply for jobs, we will use your personal data strictly for the purpose for which they were provided. We may save applications for one year from the end of a recruitment period to ensure compliance with Swedish legislation.

Who do we share your data with?

GE may share personal data with companies that process personal data on behalf of GE (data processors), such as IT suppliers and partners. GE is always responsible for the processing of your data by such companies.

Personal data may also be shared if required to:
  • comply with applicable law, regulations, legal proceedings or requests from executive agencies
  • measure our impact
  • safeguard legitimate interests of GE
  • discover, prevent or otherwise call attention to security or technical issues and fraud.
GE always strives to store personal data within the EU/EEA, but personal data may be transferred to and processed in countries outside of the EU/EEA by a supplier or subcontractor, for example, in the case of cloud service usage. GE shall take organisational and technical measures to ensure secure processing of personal data at an adequate level of protection comparable to and at par with the protection provided within the EU/EEA.

Links to external websites

GE website may contain links to websites owned or operated by a party other than GE. GE is not responsible for any processing of your personal data on these websites.

Legal basis, storage and deletion of personal data

By providing data to GE, you consent to GE collecting and storing information about your enquiry and processing the personal data provided for the specified purpose(s). GE's legal basis for processing will be one of the following: performance of a contract, a legal obligation, legitimate interest or consent. If GE uses legitimate interest as the legal basis, this will be solely for the purposes described above. Please note that you can withdraw your consent at any time by notifying us. Data are processed in accordance with applicable legislation, which means that personal data is not retained for longer than is necessary in relation to the purposes of processing.

In practice, this means that data are deleted when they are no longer necessary or useful for analyses or contacts under the purposes for which they were collected. Some information may be retained longer than this to meet other statutory requirements, such as those of the Swedish Accounting Act. GE shall maintain a high level of security and confidentiality in all personal data processing.

GE will rectify information that is discovered to be incorrect on your initiative or its own initiative. You also have the option of requesting that your data be deleted or its use restricted at any time by contacting us. If you believe that your rights are not being respected, you are welcome to contact GE or the Swedish Data Protection Authority. You can opt out of receiving communications from GE at any time. You are always welcome to contact GE for assistance in opting out of our communications.
