Anonymous or Non-Anonymous Egg Donor
One of your decisions as a donor is if you want to be an Anonymous or a Non-Anonymous egg donor.
If you choose to become an Anonymous egg donor, no one can ever demand that Cryos disclose your identity. Neither parents, children, relatives, authorities nor others may obtain your identity from Cryos. However, Cryos is obligated by law to keep a record of your identity for 30 years starting from your last donation.
If you choose to become a Non-Anonymous egg donor, children can learn your identity upon reaching 18 years of age. They must be able to document or provide evidence to support the probability that they are the result of a treatment with donor eggs from a specific, Non-Anonymous egg donor from Cryos. In other words, you may be contacted at some future time by children conceived using your eggs.
Clinics or authorities in those countries that only allow Non-Anonymous egg donors, e.g. the UK, Australia, and Finland normally demand to know the identity of egg donors. Parents or others do not have access to this data.
Non-Anonymous egg donors under the age of 25 must pass an emotional maturity evaluation during the clinical examination to ensure candidate suitability.
Your decision to become either an Anonymous or a Non-Anonymous egg donor is final and irrevocable. In other words, it cannot be changed.
The definitions; Anonymous and Non-anonymous do not mean that you are not identifiable. As donor eggs carry DNA, there is always a risk that you, recipients and children can be traced via DNA-analysis and maybe otherwise making the privacy questionable in the future
