BRC database

In order to participate in our research, we need certain information from you and your child. We store this information in our database. The database is located on a secure server within the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics. Only a select group of employees has access to the database and only for as long as is necessary for a specific research project. These are employees of the Radboud University Nijmegen and the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, who are affiliated with the BRC. A separate smaller group of employees monitors this.

We keep your personal data in our database until your child reaches the age of 10 years. We will then remove your personal data from the database. If you sign up via the pregnancy route, your personal data will be kept indefinitely unless you request that your personal data be removed from the database.
