Legal basis
GDPR only allows processing of personal data if there is at least one legal
basis. The available legal bases are defined in Art. 6, Art. 9 GDPR. In the
context of Castellum, we consider a very limited set. Except for recruitment
consent, the legal basis is deduced from available information.
- **Recruitment consent**: The subject has given explicit consent for being
contacted for future studies. See :ref:`subject-consent`.
- **Study consent**: This applies if the subject either participates in a
study or is currently in the process of being recruited for one. This is
valid until the study has been deleted or the subject drops out of the
- **Legal representative**: As long as a subject is the legal representative
for another subject it is assumed that the legal basis for the other
subject extends to this one.
- **Subject blocked**: In order to guarantee that a subject who has shown
inappropriate behavior will not be invited to studies again, the fact
*that* they are blocked can be stored without further consent.
If a subject does not have any legal basis for being in the database they will
appear in the :ref:`data protection dashboard <data-protection-dashboard>` so
their case can be reviewed and their data can be deleted from the system.
