Donors in this category have not agreed to any contact with offspring, but have not ruled out possible ID-release or anonymous interaction in the future.
Consequently, the donor has the option of waiting to decide if he wants his identity released or have any anonymous contact until the donor child turns 18 and contacts SellmerDiers with the desire to make contact with the donor. The contact can only be obtained upon the donor child’s request. Neither a parent, nor the donor may initiate any contact.
The donors are registered under a fictitious surname such as Nelson, Russel, Cowan etc.
In addition to the basic information about race, ethnicity, appearance, blood type and profession/education, we provide a donor profile consisting of 8-15 pages of personal information about the donor.
The donor profile includes the following information:
- Donor history
- Family relationship
- The donor’s personality and view of life is thoroughly illustrated by several personal questions
- Detailed information on appearance, facial features and build
- A description our staff’s impression of the donor
- Photos of the donor from his childhood
- A look-a-like picture of a celebrity that the donor resembles
- A handwritten greeting from the donor
Procedure when the donor child reaches the age of 18:
- The donor child may contact SellmerDiers and request ID-release or any additional information about his or her donor. The donor child must document that he or she is a result of donor sperm from the donor in question. If in doubt, SellmerDiers may demand that this be confirmed by a DNA test.
- SellmerDiers will make all reasonable efforts to contact the donor on the donor child’s behalf informing him of the request.
- The donor will then decide if he agrees to allow SellmerDiers to initiate ID-release or any anonymous contact with the donor child or not.
- If the donor agrees to ID-release or anonymous contact with the donor child any form of contact/communication will be determined by mutual agreement between the donor and donor child.
- The contact can for instance be made by an in-person meeting, an e-mail, a written letter, a telephone call, additional information etc.
- If the donor agrees to ID-release, SellmerDiers will disclose the donor’s identifying information to the donor child after which the donor child can make contact him-/herself.
- If the donor agrees to anonymous contact – and if requested by both the donor and the donor child – SellmerDiers will facilitate the contact between them.
- The donor child will be required to sign an agreement to not share any of the donor’s identifying/contact information with other donor children and to accept that the donor may not be regarded as the donor child’s legal father. SellmerDiers reserves the right to deny access to the donor’s identifying information if the donor child does not sign the agreement.
- A small administration fee must be paid by the donor child to cover the costs of facilitating contact between the donor child and the donor and of determining whether the donor child is a result of donor sperm from that donor (possibly DNA test).
- If the donor refuses ID-release and any anonymous contact, the donor will remain unknown to the child, and it will not be possible to obtain any contact or additional information about the donor and his identity at any time. The donor cannot be contacted by the recipient or the donor child.
- Nor will the donor’s identity or any additional information of the donor be disclosed if the donor has passed away before the donor child has turned 18, and the donor therefore is unable to make a decision.
