Thanks Chris, and of course I understand that. Retaining contact information is 
totally fine as long as you need it to do what you want do do. The question is 
how long you have to retain it. Here you are going to retain it indefinitely, 
even if there won’t be any contact at all with regards to the nomination. And 
it is up to the people to ask for deletion. Another (and yes, as said, a very 
European) option would be to delete this data after the survey and all 
communication based on it is done. It would be great if we accept and consider 
in future surveys that our views and concepts about personal data like names, 
birthdays and mail addresses differ and that people may shy away from concepts 
that look like collecting personal data to just have it in stock. 
And I stop now. I didn’t want to hijack this initiative for a side aspect. It's 
great and I'm looking forward to see great projects of our movement, done by 
people in other parts of the world.

Alice.
