Audio- en video opnames als dataset

Audio and video recordings as dataset

Audio and video recordings are regularly used in academic research. Sometimes these recordings can be made anonymous by blurring faces, or just filming hands, but this depends strongly on the purpose of the study.

Recordings can be used for presentations or publications, for example in education. It is important that the respondent is well-informed and has given permission.

Informing and consenting respondents

Data subjects are clearly informed in advance on:

  • recordings being made, based on informed consent
  • the use of recordings for presentations and publications. For this purpose, data subjects will be asked to give specific permission.
Use of audio or video data

If audio or video recordings are used in academic research, it is important that sufficient personal data is collected to answer the question of the study.

However, only personal data that is necessary for the research may be collected.

Recording  research results must comply with the guidelines below.

  • Do not mention respondents by name anonymize later.
  • Do no't film faces if this is not necessary, but only hand movements for example.

In connection with integrity guidelines, it is important that it is possible to use the data to check who participated in the research. This can be done by pseudonymizing, in the form of a communication/connection file and the informed consent forms.

Please note that if a respondent's voice is recognizable, it can be traced back to a person and is thus not anonymized but only pseudonymized.
