The INVICTA Sperm and Egg Bank ensures full anonymity for donors and recipients. This means that no personally identifiable information is divulged to either party. Each Honorary Donor receives a number (ID), which INVICTA will use during the process of treating couples with this particular material. Recipients can only learn about the donor’s blood type, height, eye and hair colour or education.
The Act on Infertility Treatment of 25 June 2015 stipulates only anonymous donation and reception of reproductive cells (eggs, sperm) or embryos. The Ministry of Health, as required by the act, maintains a registry of donors of reproductive cells and embryos for non-partner donation, as well as of recipients who receive this type of treatment. The system provides a high level of security and protection of the data.
Of course, risks arising from changes in the law or possible court cases cannot be ruled out, although it is understood that new norms should not be retroactive. Donors are informed of the risk that future regulations might enforce the abandonment of anonymity.
