Hello! I am a researcher in the United States trying to get approval to run a study on German participants. We are running into some questions from our IRB about if we are compliant with the GDPR. Has anyone else run into issues with this with their review board? From what I have seen on the help sites about data privacy and protection it doesn’t seem to be a problem. Thanks!
Hey Emily, welcome to the community! Glad you’re here
From the Prolific side:
More concisely, Prolific is a UK based company which complies with GDPR. All survey data is collected by researchers using 3rd party software, we do not have access to this data.
We do ourselves collect personal data about participants which we use for screening, however we only ever share an anonymised version of this data with Researchers (using Prolific IDs).
(P.S I’ve moved your question to a separate topic, so you get max visibility for it)
(P.S we’ve just launched a £10k Research Grant Competition ! You can enter if you’re in need of funds, or if you know someone who is, share it with them)
Hope it helps!
