Samfylkingin is a political party, i.e. NGOs, which were established on specific policies, ideologies and views, but one of the preconditions for democracy is that the free activities of political organizations should flourish. It is necessary for political organizations to record and process personal information in their work, e.g. for the purpose of maintaining the membership registers and the rights and obligations of members, and disseminating information to party members and, as the case may be, others.
The purpose of the Samfylkingan with the registration and processing of personal information is that the party can fulfill its duties and fulfill its role according to the party's laws and national laws, towards party members, employees and those with whom it has business relations.

Samfylkingin collects and processes personal information about party members, registered supporters, employees and those with whom the party has a business relationship. The party collects only the information necessary for the party to be able to fulfill its obligations towards the above-mentioned parties.
In principle, Samfylkingin collects personal information directly from party members, registered supporters, employees or those with whom it has a business relationship. However, information may also come from third parties, e.g. national register, government and companies.
Samfylkingun cares about communicating its policies and activities. Such information sharing is in many cases based on direct contact with individuals.

4.2. SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER. The ID number usually accompanies the registered name of an individual. The information is mainly used to distinguish those with the same names from each other. ID numbers are also used to obtain information on the age of party members. In addition, they are used as a unique identifier to retrieve regular updates to the National Registry of a registered domicile and other information stored by the National Registry, such as a name. ID numbers are also used to obtain information on who is banned in the National Register and / or telephone directory, as well as to find and update telephone numbers of those who are not banned in the run-up to elections.

They are also used to send information by letter to party members and registered supporters regarding party work. Postal codes and, as the case may be, addresses are used to locate individuals in municipalities and constituencies, but the location depends on e.g. the right to join local party associations, the right to stand for election in the relevant associations and local councils, and the right to participate in primary elections in the run-up to local and parliamentary elections.
4.4 ADDRESS. E-mail addresses are used for the purpose of sending information to party members and registered supporters by e-mail, such as events, meetings, messages from leadership, fundraising, policies and other news from the party's work, as well as incentives in the election campaign.

Party members and registered supporters can at any time refuse further calls and text messages from the party by submitting a request to the party's office.

Samfylkingin maintains a central party register where information is kept about all party members, their membership and national union registration, about confidential work for the association and / or the party, and information related to fundraising, such as membership fees and membership in the sponsorship system. Samfylkingur supporters who are not members of the party are also registered in the central party register.
Only those Samfylkingur employees who need it for access to the party register as a whole have access to it and it is not shared with third parties.
A central party register contains information on the membership numbers of each member association and national association. Only the chairmen and / or the party nominated by the boards for legitimate purposes have access to the membership list in order to be able to perform duties to members, e.g. for general and association meetings, fundraising, membership fees and other communication with members, incl. due to the selection of a list of candidates in local companies. Depending on the circumstances, party members in special confidential positions, such as chairmen and employees of association meetings, as well as election boards and standing committees, may also have access to the membership list of member associations and national unions.
Associations and national associations are not allowed to receive e-mail addresses from the party register, but the party's office sends an e-mail message on their behalf in the area of operation of each association or constituency council, upon request.
