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.
