Welcome to the DARIAH ELDAH Consent Form Wizard (CFW)!
Since the coming into effect of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), humanities researchers have been unsure about how to do certain parts of their research while considering their subjects’ right to privacy. The CFW is here to help.
(What this tool is)
The aim of the CFW is to support humanities researchers within the European Union in obtaining valid consent for data processing in the context of their specific professional activity.
This tool will guide you through a questionnaire that will consequently generate a GDPR-compliant form for obtaining consent from data subjects, tailored to your specific purpose and the data categories you intend to collect.
Please be aware that the validity of the generated output will be dependent on the truthfulness and accuracy of the input you provide. Honest and comprehensive answers will improve the quality of the results generated by the tool.
After answering the questionnaire, the CFW will output a consent form template specifically tailored to your needs according to your answers in plain text format. You will be able to use this text template for creating consent forms to print out and have signed by data subjects, or to include in online environments.
Since we will not store the generated output ourselves, please make sure to save your generated consent form at a location of your choice. If you want to provide your result as an example for other CFW users, please send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(... and what it is not)
The consent forms provided by this tool will observe the Articles of the GDPR. In some instances, the tool will recommend that you obtain additional legal advice.
BE AWARE THAT THIS TOOL DOES NOT PROVIDE FORMAL LEGAL ADVICE. USE IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE COMPLYING WITH APPLICABLE LEGISLATION, CONSULT A LAWYER IN YOUR COUNTRY.
(Who we are)
ELDAH (“Ethics and Legality in Digital Arts and Humanities”) is a working group of the Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities DARIAH-EU. The working group was founded in 2017 and is co-chaired by Koraljka Kuzman Šlogar (Zagreb / Croatia), Walter Scholger (Graz / Austria) and Vanessa Hannesschläger (Vienna / Austria). Among the main tasks of ELDAH are the presentation of workshops on ethical and legal dimensions of humanities research for arts and humanities scholars, and the development and distribution of training material and tools on these topics - such as the CFW. The CFW was developed and implemented in 2019/2020 by Vanessa Hannesschläger, Walter Scholger, Pawel Kamocki and Norbert Czirjak. The project was jointly funded by CLARIAH-AT, SSHOC, DARIAH-HR and DARIAH-EU.
