Personal Data and Confidentiality
Data that contains personal information has to be handled according to certain regulations, note that:
- All research projects that involve processing of personal data must be registered in PULU (Personal Data Lund University). For employees of The Joint Faculties of Humanities and Theology, the research project first needs to be registered in LUCRIS, before the processing of personal data can be registered in PULU. Information on personal data and data protection can be found on the Staff Pages.
- Informed consent is sometimes a requirement when you collect personal data: Lund University Staff Pages on written consent.
- Sensitive information must be stored in a secure location. For example, this may apply to sensitive personal data, included in interviews (audio files and transcriptions) or survey responses, and attached consent documents. The data may need to be stored in a strongbox or on a secure server.
- It must be decided how codes, de-identification of data, and encryption keys are to be managed.
