Customer Question

Dear Sir/Madam,
I have a very specific question about donor ivf in Spain. I know donor eggs can only be given on an anonymous basis i.e. the donor can never be identified. Exactly what information can be given to the recipient. I understand age, blood group, hair, eye colour, skin colour, height weight. What about nationality and whether they are a university graduate etc.?
Thanking you in advance.
