Your privacy and research ethics

The Minds for Minds Network of New Zealand takes your privacy seriously. Whether you register yourself or someone in your care, we will treat all information you provide to us as confidential.

The information you provide falls into two main categories - your personal details, and clinical information. Your clinical details help us to match you (or the person in your care) to our research projects, and we need your contact details to inform you about the projects you may wish to participate in.

The clinical information you provide via this website will be stored anonymously and separately from your personal details. This means that only the Principal Investigators (or database experts working on their behalf) can join clinical and personal information.

The project entitled "The molecular basis of Autism Spectrum Disorder and other neurodevelopmental disorders" has been approved by the Northern B Health and Disability Ethics Committee, reference 12/NTB/59.
