This data is all the type of personal data that is referred to in the Personal Data Act as ordinary personal data.

When you save a catch, we save the geographical position of your location if the app is activated in relation to a fishing trip. Similarly, you can specify a capture location in the web version and here we also save your location. If you associate photos with your captures that you take with your smartphone, we record the geographic location of the place where the photo was taken. We also save your photos to be able to quality assure data i.e. whether the stated and registered species matches the species in the photographs. Other specific examples of how we use the collected personal data are:
-We use name, email and telephone number to send activation links to the user upon creation and, if the user gives permission to do so and if relevant, to contact the user at a later point in connection with research.
-We use the postcode and address for research into travel patterns and associated economic consumption in connection with fishing, as well as for research into regional and local socio demographic differences in user patterns of Fangstjournalen.
-We use age, gender, postcode and address to do research in socio-demographic patterns in angling and user behavior.

4. Regarding the collaborations between Fangstjournalen and fishing clubs and associations

In some cases information is collected jointly by Fangstjournalen and a fishing club/association. When doing so, DTU Aqua and the involved fishing club or association have a shared data responsibility. This shared data responsibility complies only to the collection of data. This further implies that DTU Aqua and the fishing clubs/association have their own separate responsibility for any data handling that takes place after data has been collected. Fangstjournalen will inform you when data are collected in shared responsibility, i.e. when you include a fishing club in your user profile in the settings of Fangstjournalen settings and/or when you submit a fishing trip from a fishing location that involve a fishing club and/or association. This can happen through Fangstjournalen or through a special catch registration form positioned at the homepages of fishing clubs or associations.
In cases when DTU Aqua and a fishing club/association collects data jointly, the parties have signed an agreement of shared data responsibility. Important elements in this agreement includes that DTU Aqua accounts for most of the data protection obligations associated with the collection. However, the relevant fishing club/association itself is responsible for ensuring that a valid basis for treatment is carried out in order to carry out the joint treatment and to be able to document this, and to keep a record of the joint treatment. The information given below applies both to DTU Aqua's processing of personal data in connection with the collection and subsequently. In connection with stating, whether information is collected jointly together with a fishing club/association we link to the personal data policy of the involved fishing clubs/associations or to relevant contact persons. The information provided by the fishing club/association, including information on treatment basis provided by the fishing club/association regarding the fishing club/association's use of personal data, also applies to the information collected by the fishing club/association in collaboration with DTU Aqua.

5. Deletion of personal data

Then we anonymize the discontinued user, ie. deletes data about name, e-mail address and, if specified during the creation of the user profile, also information about address and telephone number. Only information about the disused user's postcode, age and gender that we can use in the further research of data remains. If a user during the creation of a user profile has allowed DTU Aqua to contact her/him, we save the e-mail address. If a user of Fangstjournalen has not been active on Fangstjournalen for five years, ie has not been logged in as a user, we will delete the user profile in accordance with the above.
