8. Personal information

How long will we keep data (email, name, etc)? Will we add it to a mailing list for subsequent contact? Will it be passed/sold to a third party?[3]

Shouldn’t the first one be ” free for those providing a name, age and email address. As this is the key information that we need.[1]

We said the 12th March but since that is a Friday, I thought that the 14th (Sunday) will also work well and give a little bit more time [2]

The ethics framework at the university prohibits me from storing data after it has served its purposes (i.e. once the special issue is published) and from selling/passing it on to any third party. However, once we publish the data in the special issue it is part of the public domain, isn’t it. [3]
