How the collected data is handled in the Minerva project

Personal data

  • In the Minerva project, the participant is anonymous to the greatest extent possible.
  • The participant will only state age, gender, vocational and educational background.
  • As long as the respondent does not provide any personal information about themselves, for example in free text fields, they will remain anonymous.
  • All accounts used in the project are cleared after use and data extracted will be anonymized.

The Minerva group is responsible for ensuring that the research data generated within the project is handled in a legal and correct manner, taking into account good practice in the research and taking into account the General Data Protection Regulation, GDPR. It follows that the research data generated within the Minerva project is added to the Minerva group and, as far as possible, the participants in the research project.

Transfer of personal data

The data is collected and temporarily stored by Google, the company that provides Google Classroom. Personal data that can be collected through Google services will be deleted at Google after completion of the course and then stored anonymously by the Minerva group. The ownership of the data lies primarily with Online Partner, which owns the G Suite domain and is shared with Insert Coin.

International transfer

The personal data collected through the survey is transmitted and stored temporarily in Google Sheet on the Online Partners G Suite domain. G Suite is a service provided by Google that is certified under the Privacy Shield framework. You can read more about it at


The personal data collected in the survey is stored with Online Partner for a maximum of 90 days from the end of the survey. They are then transferred and deleted from the Online Partners G Suite and are only available at the Minerva group. The Minerva group stores data for as long as needed to carry out the analyzes needed in the investigation of the Minerva project. The Minerva group complies with the applicable regulations, which require, for example, that research data should be made available through archiving and registration and that the research ethical principle of open data be applied. Research data and documentation are stored for at least 10 years after publication.
