Data protection template for research projects

Updated on 25 May 2020

This template should be used whenever research is carried out that requires the storage, use or transfer of personal data where the privacy risks and mitigations are not covered in an Ethics submission and/or a Research Data Management Plan

On this page

Data Protection Impact Assessments should be completed for all new or modified uses of personal data. Data Protection Impact Assessments are mandatory for all high-risk or high-volume processing of personal data, for the introduction of any new systems or for monitoring and/or surveillance systems (such as CCTV).

This template should be used whenever research is carried out that requires the storage, use or transfer of personal data where the privacy risks and mitigations are not covered in an Ethics submission and/or a Research Data Management Plan. The completion of a DPIA may also be useful when working with other organisations or funders to demonstrate proper consideration of personal data risks and their mitigation.
