An outline of the ODK Service at LSHTM: Introduction to ODK@LSHTM
IMPORTANT UPDATE 2018-05-22 : Encryption
ODK form submission takes place over an encrypted connection to the LSHTM server, but it is additionally necessary to establish more stringent encryption.
We require ALL LSHTM Open Research Kit data to be fully encrypted.
Users who do not implement encryption within their forms may be in breach of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679
Instructions for how to implement encryption can be found at the bottom of this page.
Please note that data sets which use pseudonyms are not exempt from GDPR. All health data relating to individual, potentially identifiable individual humans is considered sensitive data under GDPR.
