Data Protection and Privacy
The FEEdBACk project is committed to ensure that all project activities are conducted in an ethically responsible manner. This is particularly important with regards to the involvement of users and their data, which is an essential component of the project.
The FEEdBACk project has therefor defined four ethical principles for interactions and work done in connection with the project:
• Respect for Persons: Respect for autonomy and personal integrity as well as for stakeholder’s perspectives and considerations. Besides that, FEEdBACk honour informed consent.
• Beneficence: Persons are treated in an ethical manner not only by respecting their decisions and protecting them from harm, but also by making efforts to secure their well-being.
• Justice: This point includes fairness and equity. The recruitment and selection of users to participate in the demonstrators must be fair and equal, and the voluntariness of users must be stressed (cf. Respect for Persons). Collected data from the demonstrators must not be used to discriminate or stigmatise any individual or social groups.
• Respect for law and public interest: Commitment to treat personal data with confidentiality and respect privacy. To do that, FEEdBACK complies with national and international regulations on privacy and data protection.
