How your data is protected
- How your data is protected
Information collected or held by the University must comply with the data protection principles which are set out in the Data Protection Act 1998. In order to ensure that this happens, the University has developed a Data Protection Policy. This policy can be found here.
If you have taken part in CHARIS Ipsos MORI will have interviewed you over the telephone. Ipsos MORI are collecting the data on behalf of the University. Here are some key ways in which we are protecting your data:
- Data are transferred from Ipsos MORI to Aberdeen via a secure data transfer facility.
- Data are stored in Aberdeen on a secure server in a secure study project file.
- The only people who can access the data are named members of the research team.
- As soon as possible all the information that could be used to identify an individual participant is removed from the survey data. The data are thus anonymised.
We securely store the anonymised datasets. Once the study is complete and we have completed all our publications, other researchers will be able to access the anonymised data. This is part of the open science approach to research that aims to make best use of all the research data collected nationally and internationally.
CHARIS started in 2020 (funded by the Chief Scientist Office) and is currently in it’s second run of surveys (funded by the Health and Safety Executive). Please select below which time interval your participation falls into to access relevant questionnaires.
