(2) the person who undergoes the intervention, in the case of any clinical intervention relating to assisted procreation, particularly ovarian stimulation, egg retrieval or embryo transfer;
(3) the person to whom the gametes belong, the woman for whom the embryos were intended and any spouse, in cases involving assisted procreation activities relating to gamete or embryo cryoconservation and their storage;
(4) the woman for whom the embryo was intended and not transferred into her and any spouse, in cases of embryo donation for a parental project or research purposes; and
