Privacy & Security

For applicants/grant holders:
When you choose to apply for funding from the Danish Heart Foundation or Danish Children Heart Foundation, or when you have a research grant from the Danish Cardiovascular Academy, we need to process your personal information cf. the guidelines for applications and terms for research grants. These guidelines e.g. require evaluation by peer review committees and that we follow up on assigned grants. Read more here.

Your personal information can therefore be shared with external collaborators such as our panel of grant reviewers, our data processors and other companies we use to manage our grants e.g. in connection with analyses of the Danish Heart Foundation’s and Danish Children Heart Foundation’s research investments.
The legal basis for processing your personal information as mentioned above is GDPR art.6(1)(f) and without the sought after information, it would not be possible for us to process your application and/or manage your grant.

Your personal information will be kept as long as you have an active grant or as long as the Accounting Act prescribes it, according to GDPR art.6(1)(c). After that we will store following personal information for a period, that unfortunately is not possible for us to define in advance, as long as it is considered historically relevant for future research investments (this applies to both granted and declined applications), according to GDPR art.6(1)(f): Main applicant's, co-applicants' and manager's name, title/scientific position, affiliated institute, email, education and year of birth.

For reviewers:
When you review research applications for the Danish Heart Foundation or the Danish Children Heart Foundation, we need to process your personal information, a.o. to be able to inform you about the reviewing work and its processes and for us to be able to receive your review.
If you are a member of the Danish Expert Committee or the Patient and Public Committee, your personal information can be shared with other members of your committee. If you are an international/external reviewer, your personal information can be shared with the Danish Expert Committee.
The legal basis for processing your personal information as mentioned above is GDPR art.6(1)(f) and without the sought-after information, it would not be possible for us to administer your review.

If you are a member of the Danish Expert Committee or the Patient and Public Committee, your personal information will be anonymized when you are no longer an active member of the committee or when the Accounting Act allows us to do so, according to GDPR art.6(1)(c). We will keep the names of the members of the Patient and Public Committee for an additional four years to make sure we recruit new members for the following committees, according to GDPR art.6(1)(f). We will keep the names of the members of the Danish Expert Committee for an additional 10 years to make sure we recruit new members for the following committees, according to GDPR art.6(1)(f). If you are an international/external reviewer, your personal information will be anonymized when we no longer expect to receive research applications within your area of expertise or when the Accounting Act allows us to do so, according to GDPR art.6(1)(c). You are of course at any time welcome to request deleting of your personal information, which we will oblige if the Accounting Act allows us to do so.
