JEDI Lab's research ethical responsibilities include the proper safeguarding of potentially sensitive data collected during an experiment. JEDI Lab takes the following steps to meet its confidentiality requirements:
- All data collected during recruitment is stored on a server that is accessible only to JEDI Lab research staff. These data are used only for the purpose of recruiting subjects to participate in experiments.
- All personally-identifying data collected during an experiment (e.g., your name) is processed according to the approved ethics document of the respective study. Usually, any personal information is replaced with a code number, and the list linking code numbers to personally-identifying data is kept separate from the experimental data.
- All material containing personally-identifying information (e.g., informed consent) are stored in secure locations.
