The GDPR has come into force on 25 May 2018, bringing with it increased requirements with respect to processing personal data. Processing of personal data needs to be lawful, fair and transparent.
UZ Leuven is committed to responsible processing of information relating to individuals and to respecting their rights to data privacy. Although the consideration of GDPR may seem like an additional burden, much of it is plain common sense and consistent with the ethical requirements of many research projects. The present list of questions is intended to faciliate compliance with GDPR and collect all necessary information regarding the processing of personal data in accordance with the GDPR.
Note that personal data that have been pseudonymised – e.g. key-coded – fall within the scope of the GDPR. Data that have been anonymised are considered to be out of scope of GDPR.
