The information is also used to gain more knowledge of you and other users of the site. This use may include studies and analytics that are aimed at improving our products, services and technologies.
General use of data

We only store the information needed to establish contact between associations and volunteers as well as perform user surveys, customer support, performance of agreements (e.g. grants or collaborative contracts) etc. We keep this data securely

For applicants the relevant information is:
Name ,Contact information (mail and phone number)A short message to the organisation (applicant is encouraged not to write personally sensitive information)
If you do not want GROWTOGETHER to access and store this data any longer, you can to two things: If you have made OPPORTUNITY listings and to find volunteers, feel free to delete your user and related job listings through your login details, which have been sent to you via e-mail.

If you have been seeking voluntary work, please contact us for support and we will delete all personally identifiable data that you want to delete. In either case, you should be aware that this will impact on the capacity of GROTOGETHER.DK’s ability to fulfill our purpose of communicating voluntary work to or for you.
Personal data in connection to feeds
In a number of municipalities, GROWTOGETHER.dk provides a local feed, which shows a picture of what is available here and now of volunteering options. The data for this is deducted from GROWTOGETHER.dk. Some feeds show email addresses for the person responsible for the job post. If you do not want this to happen, you can delete your user, but this can mean running into difficulties when using GROWTOGETHER to find volunteers.
Protection of personal data in job posts
GROWTOGETHER encourages all users not to include any personally identifiable or personally sensitive data in job posts. In practice this means that individuals cannot be identified by job vacancies on GROWTOGETHER.DK without prior written consent of the person.
