The DARIAH working group ELDAH (“Ethics and Legality in Digital Arts and Humanities”) is pleased to announce that a new tool to manage data protection in humanities research has been developed and launched: the DARIAH ELDAH Consent Form Wizard (CFW).
This tool enables researchers to correctly approach the management of personal data in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). After responding to a series of questions, researchers receive a standardized consent form template for collecting consent from data subjects in DH projects (e.g. from visitors of scientific events, survey participants, mailing list subscribers, …). The provided consent forms are valid throughout the European Union and therefore serve the entire DH community.
