Can I meet my donor?

In accordance with the data protection and privacy regulations a contact is possible if both the recipient and the donor agree. Also, if the recipient agrees, the donor may receive updates on the patient’s health status. There are some countries that due to national legislation do not allow any correspondence or contact between donor and patient.

For a period of two years all correspondence between recipient and donor will be checked to make sure that no identifying information is disclosed in the correspondence. Two years after the donation the personal data of the recipient and the donor may be released if both parties give their consent.

Many countries including Germany and the USA still allow the contact between donor and recipient.
