How is your data protected?

The protection of your data is particularly important to us, which is why we only use multiple secure data processing systems in the project.

You can find more information below, but you can also contact us at any time if you have questions.

How long will the personal data be stored?

Your data will be processes for 4 years, i. e. for the entire duration of the project, after which it will be irretrievably deleted.

What kind of personal data is collected and processed?

Personal data (age, gender, origin) will be collected as part of the study. The collection and evaluation of the data is pseudonymised. This means that you can create your own psedoynm (individual code) in the questionnaire at the beginning of the survey. We also ask you to create this individual code in the second and third quesionnaires, and via this code we can assign the data records from the questionnaires to each other without knowing which specific persons are behind these pseudonyms.

We will guide you through the process of creating the code in the questionnaire. This requires the first tow letters of your other's first name, the first two digits of your birthday and the second and third letters of your place of birth. For example, if your mother's name is Katrin and you were born on 08.12. in Düsseldorf, this would result in the pseudonym "KA08ÜS".

What special categories of personal data are collected and processed?

Health data (stress, mental health, physical condition, health behaviour) and education-related data (study performance & satisfaction) are collected. The collection is pesudonymised, i. e. it is not possible to assign the data to an identifiable person.

Legal basis for processing

Data is only collected and processed with your consent. We record this consent when you call up the online survey by asking you to tick a checkbox.

Recipients and categories of recipients of personal data

Your data will only be viewed and processed by the scientific team that has developed and evaluated the questionnaire. Your data will not be passed on to third parties.

Legal or contractual obligation

Completing the questionnaire is voluntary. You will not suffer any adverse consequences if you do not participate in this study. It is also possible to leave questions blank. Even if you do not answer individual questions, you can still participate in the survey.

Information on the rights of data subjects

Data protection law grants you the following rights:

- the right to information (das Recht auf Auskunft, Art. 15 DS-GVO),

- the right to rectification (das Recht auf Berichtigung, Art. 16 DS-GVO),

- the right to erasure (das Recht auf Löschung, Art. 17 DS-GVO),

- the right to restriciton of processing (das Recht auf Einschränkung der Verarbeitung, Art. 18 DS-GVO),

- the right to object to processing (das Recht auf Widerspruch gegen die Verarbietung, Art. 21 DS-GVO),

- as well as a right to data portability (Recht auf Datenübertragbarkeit, Art. 20 DS-GVO).

Information on the right to withdraw consent

As the data is collected in pseudonymised form, the deletion and blocking of individual or all personal data can be initiated. To do this, we will collect the individual code that you create yourself at the beginning of the survey. If you want to withdraw your consent to the use of your data, you only have to send us this code (don't worry, we will help you to create the code again). The code will allow us to identify your data and delete it if you wish.
