Privacy protection in HUNT
The use of data and biological material from health studies imposes strict requirements on the protection of privacy and ethical guidelines. Protecting the participants' privacy is of utmost importance in the HUNT study.
Participants will not be identifiable for researchers using HUNT data.
All participants in the HUNT study signed an informed consent form allowing the use of their data and samples for research. Participants can demand to have their data deleted from the HUNT database at any given moment.
All research in HUNT is in accordance with the guidelines of the Regional Committee for Medical Reseach Ethics (REK), Data Inspectorate and applicable law.
