If you are working with people for your research project then you have a duty to ensure that any data you gather and subsequently use is handled correctly. While activities classed as research are subjected to less legal regulations than similar non-research activity in which data is processed, it is still necessary to keep in mind relevant data protection requirements.

The University has well-developed guides with FAQs about the management of research data.

In addition, laws such as the General Data Protection Regulation, which governs the processing of personal data, must be adhered to. There is University guidance on General Data Protection Regulation which details the University's measures to ensure the regulations are met.

The UK Data Service provides comprehensive guidelines on working with personal and sensitive data and has an FAQ section on GDPR.
