Statement of data use

All the personal information provided will be kept confidential to the researchers unless it is judged that confidentiality will have to be breached for the safety of the participant or others or for audit by regulatory authorities. This is under the statutory obligations of the agencies which the researchers are working with.

The data provided will be securely stored in Loughborough University Data Repository.

All data collected will be anonymised. However, if you send us material for our websites such as photographs of yourself and/or video clips in which you appear, you may be identifiable.

Data collected in the form of anonymised excerpts and quotations will be used in academic publications, reports, web pages, and other research outputs. Data may be used by our project partners, Charnwood Arts/Equality Action/Tower Hamlets Council, for non-commercial purposes in their artwork or promotional material.

Participation in the project is completely voluntary, anyone has the right to withdraw from this study at any stage for any reason and will not be required to explain their reasons for withdrawing.
