The type of personal information we collect We currently collect and process the following information:
How we get the personal information and why we have it
Most of the personal information we process is provided to us directly by you for one of the following reasons:
We use the information that you have given us in order to facilitate adopted persons’ searches for their roots and biological families’ searches for their children lost to adoption. As adoption is a sensitive subject, we may share this information only internally within our organization and only with those in our organization involved in the search/reunion process in order to facilitate search/reunion services for adoptees and biological families. We will obtain your consent before sharing with anyone outside our organization, and then only when absolutely necessary (for example, with a genealogist) to facilitate said search/reunion.
Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), for citizens of the European Union, the lawful bases we rely on for processing this information are:
(a) Your consent. You are able to remove your consent at any time. You can do this by contacting Linda Carol Trotter at email@example.com
(b) We have a legitimate interest.
(c) We have a legal obligation.
How we store your personal information
We keep the personal information we collect until the purpose for which it was collected is fulfilled, including but not limited to, search and reunion, post-reunion support services, research, events, etc., or until you withdraw your consent for our services. Once the purpose for which it was collected is fulfilled or you withdraw your consent, we will either anonymize your information or dispose of your information by either deleting the data securely from any personal computer files or by shredding any physical documents containing your personal information.
