DARIAH ELDAH CONSENT FORM WIZARD (CFW) - a new tool to manage data protection in humanities research

10th September 2020

The DARIAH working group ELDAH (Ethics and Legality in Digital Arts and Humanities) has developed and launched a new tool to manage data protection in humanities research: the DARIAH ELDAH CONSENT FORM WIZARD (CFW). This tool enables researchers to correctly approach the management of personal data in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

More information on the tool:

After responding to a series of questions, researchers receive a standardized consent form template for collecting consent from data subjects in DH projects (e.g. from visitors of scientific events, survey participants, mailinglist subscribers, ...). The provided consent forms are valid throughout the entire European Union and therefore serve the entire DH community. The project was jointly developed and funded by CLARIAH-AT, DARIAH-EU, and DARIAH-HR and supported by SSHOC. The tool was developed and implemented by Vanessa Hannesschläger, Walter Scholger, Pawel Kamocki and Norbert Czirjak. 

To learn more about data privacy in general and how to use the CFW, join ELDAH's virtual workshop "Addressing legal and ethical dimensions of the processing of personal data in research contexts: The ELDAH Consent Wizard as a tool for fostering best practices for consent and transparency in DH" [6] at the DARIAH annual event on Wednesday, October 28, 2020, 10 a.m.
