Handling personal data

Check how to handle personal data before, during and after your research.

Guide to handling personal data

The Algemene Verordening Gegevensbescherming (AVG), or the General Data Protection Regulation  (GDPR), came into force on May 25 2018. The GDPR requires you as a researcher to provide clarity and transparency to data subjects about how you handle their personal data. It demands that certain safeguards and security measures be put in place to protect the privacy of data subjects. For detailed information on Privacy and Research at the UMC Utrecht visit the UMCU intranet.

Sharing of research data that relates to people can often be achieved using a combination of obtaining consent, pseudonymising data and regulating data access.
