Royal Schiphol Group donations ceremony

The awards ceremony for general donations will take place at the headquarters of Royal Schiphol Group. During the event we offer applicants a tour of the airport. In connection with the security rules that apply at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, we require all tour participants to submit their name, telephone number, date of birth and a copy of their ID. These personal details are only required for this activity at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and will be destroyed after the event.

Visual material

If your application includes visual material to be assessed, such as photos or videos, you automatically give Schiphol Fund permission to use this visual material for the purpose of your application and possible donation.

Our photographer takes images during the donations awards ceremonies, which you will receive in digital format. If the Schiphol Fund wants to use photographs or other visual material for our website, social media channels or otherwise, we will ask you for your permission in advance.

Retention period

A donation is a contract. The legal retention period of all data for a donation is seven (7) years after termination of the contract. The contract is officially terminated when you have completed the financial statement for the donation. Your data will then remain stored in the secure database for a maximum of seven (7) years, after which time it will be destroyed.

If the Schiphol Fund fails to honour an application, we will return all documents belonging to the application. We will save the application form and the project description anonymously for a maximum of 2 years.

The Schiphol Fund does everything within its power to protect your personal data against loss and unauthorised use. All Schiphol Fund employees who have access to personal data as part of their work are required to maintain confidentiality.
