Grant applications to TrygFonden are sometimes reviewed by external reviewers or by members of the Advisory Research Committee of TrygFonden (TrygFondens Rådgivende Forskningsudvalg).

2. Information we process

The data we process about our external reviewers and the members of the Advisory Research Committee of TrygFonden is information about name, job title, place of employment and email address. For external reviewers we also process data about h-index and country of residence. Additionally, we process data about the reviewed grant applications, assessments, and data necessary for payment of fees, such as CPR number and salary number (for Danish reviewers) and IBAN, swift, date of birth and address (for foreign reviewers). 

The purpose of the processing is to be able to request assistance from the reviewers and to pay the reviewers for their assistance. 

The legal basis for the processing of personal data is both our legitimate interest in being able to request assistance from the reviewers  (pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR), performance of the contract with the reviewer (pursuant to Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR) and compliance with our legal obligation under the Danish Accounting Act (bogføringsloven) (pursuant to Article 6(1)(c) of the GDPR).

The data we process about external reviewers is collected from publicly available sources.


3. Data security

We have implemented technical and organizational security measures regarding the personal data we process. These measures aim to prevent data alteration, loss or unauthorized access. They include features such as firewalls, web security, regular server updates, security protocols for workstations and network equipment, as well as protection against viruses and unwanted programs. Additionally, we have authorization and access restrictions to ensure that only relevant employees can access personal data. These employees are also bound by confidentiality agreements and receive instructions about handling of personal data.

4. Disclosure to third parties and use of data processors

We only disclose or transfer personal data to third parties in accordance with legal requirements and for the purposes described in this privacy policy. 

We engage external vendors for IT operations, services, and web development. If these vendors have access to our personal data, they are bound by confidentiality agreements and/or by data processing agreements.

5. Deletion

We process data solely for the purposes specified in this privacy policy.

Data about an external reviewer is kept until we receive notice that the reviewer no longer wishes to conduct reviews for us. 

Data about a member of the Advisory Research Committee of TrygFonden is kept until he/she is no longer a member. 

Data related to payment of fees is kept according to applicable rules in force and is deleted after the current year of payment plus five years.
