We know that securing data of all our participants is very important. This is why we only use anonymised data. A 14 digit ID is assigned to every student which is the only identifier we use. All sensitive information like names or date of birth remains with the schools. We are not interested in the results of individuals but rather in the broad relationships of overall factors like musicality and school engagement.
The data will never be shared with any third parties, not even funding institutions like the Humboldt-Foundation or our universities. Only members of the LongGold team have access to the data. It will only be use for scientific purposes.
