Data Protection information for AMALFI participants
The University of Oxford is a world-leader in developing systems to ensure that information is stored safely for research studies like AMALFI. You can read the University's Data Privacy Notice on the Nuffield Department of Population Health website.
The University of Oxford is the data controller for the AMALFI information, which means that it is responsible for looking after this information and for ensuring it is used properly. Information about patients is stored securely using encryption and password protection and access is limited to only those members of staff who need to use the information.
The University of Oxford is using information about people for research purposes and it will only process personal data (i.e. information about someone where that individual could be identified) in order to undertake research carried out in the public interest. This is known under data protection law as our legal basis for processing personal data.
