Data protection, data base management and ethics

We protect the collected data on various levels: guarantee confidentiality, integrity and availability of data and protect personal data according to the EU General Data Protection Regulations (EU GDPR). These aspects are vital from the start of a planned study, from the application of scientific funding and design of psychological experiments. Each funding proposal has to be approved by the local Ethics Committee of the Faculty of Psychology of the RUB. A local TÜV-certified data protection officer supports the research teams in the implementation of the requirements.
