Processing of Personal Data

In connection with filling out and sending an application to IFS, the data you pass on will be registered and processed by the foundation.

The data that is processed is all the data you disclose to IFS including information about name, title, address, telephone number, email, gender, age, nationality, curriculum vitae as well as any researcher ID (ORCID).

The purpose of processing

The purpose of processing your personal data is to evaluate your application for being awarded a grant from IFS.

In the event your project is awarded a grant, the personal data (please see “Erasure policy” below) will be stored in our database of granted projects. The purpose of this processing is partly to create a register/bibliography of granted projects in order that future applicants and other interested parties will be able to gain insight into who and what projects have received a grant.

In the event that your project is not awarded a grant, the personal data stated under the heading “Erasure policy” will be part of our internal register of applications received.

Erasure policy

The personal data that you divulge to IFS will as a minimum be filed until a decision about your application has been made and from then on based on the following criteria:

IF YOU RECEIVE A GRANT

In the event that IFS decide to award a grant on the basis of your application, the information about your name, project title and possible workplace will be filed in IFS register of granted projects, which partly is accessible to the general public. The data will be kept on file for as long as this is relevant considering there being an interest in the data still being accessible from a societal and research point of view.

In addition, all other information (address, telephone number, email and possible curriculum vitae) as well as information about your name, gender, nationality as well as possible researcher ID (ORCID) will be filed for as long as IFS find it necessary with a view to the data becoming part of IFS internal register of applications received as well as granted projects.

IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE A GRANT

In the event that IFS decide not to give a grant based on your application, the information about your title, name, gender, age, nationality, project title and possible workplace will be filed in IFS internal register of applications received
