RMIT University values privacy and is committed to handling personal, sensitive and health information in accordance with the RMIT Privacy and Data Protection Policy and the privacy principles contained in the Privacy and Data Protection Act 2014 (Vic) and the Health Records Act 2001 (Vic).
The Behavioural Business Lab's (BBL) research-ethics responsibilities include the proper safeguarding of potentially sensitive data collected during a study. BBL takes the following steps to meet its confidentiality requirements:
- All data collected during recruitment is stored on a server that is accessible only to BBL research staff. This data is stored internally on the RMIT server. The data is used only for the purpose of recruiting people to participate in BBL studies.
- All personally-identifying data collected during a study (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 study data.
- All human-subjects forms containing personally-identifying information (e.g., informed consent) are stored in secure locations.
