Informed Consent

All persons have individual rights that are not to be infringed. Individual participants in investigations have, the right to decide what happens to the personal data gathered, to what they have said during an investigation or an interview, and also to any photograph that was taken.

Therefore it is important that all participants gave their informed consent in writing prior to inclusion in the investigation. Identifying details (names, dates of birth, identity numbers and other information) of the participants that were studied should not be published in written descriptions, photographs, and genetic profiles unless the information is essential for scientific purposes and the participant (or parent or guardian if the participant is incapable) gave written informed consent for publication.

 

You can use the below form to obtain consent for publication from the participant.
