Data Protection: Deleting a subject from Castellum
==================================================
Delete a subject
================
Prerequisite
------------
The subject data of a subject should be completely deleted because of three
different reasons:
- the subject either requested it,
- they cannot be reached due to incorrect or missing contact data or
- there is no legal basis for consent.
Deletion of externally and internally stored data
-------------------------------------------------
You may want personal data and subjects to be completely deleted because of an
explicit request from the subject or simply because there no longer is a
sufficient legal basis to keep the data.
In order to delete the externally and internally stored data of a subject,
please proceed as follows:
1. Click on **Data protection** on the front page
If the data of a subject should be deleted, you will find the subject assigned
to one or more deletion options
1. In the subject details, go to the **Delete** tab
2. Click on **Details** next to the subject to be deleted
2. If you see a message saying **This subject cannot be deleted because there
still is data about them in studies.**, proceed as follows:
3. Click on **Delete** on the upper right
- Contact the responsible person for each study - Ask them to delete
all collected data of the subject concerned. Identify the subject using
the study pseudonym that is displayed.
- Once the responsible contact person has deleted all data, delete the
participation record using the **Delete** button.
1. When you see a message saying **Are you sure you want to permanently delete this subject and all related data?**, click on **Confirm** and the subject will be deleted
3. Once all participation have been deleted you will see a message saying
**Are you sure you want to permanently delete this subject and all related
data?** You can now click **Confirm** and the subject will be deleted.
2. If you see a message saying **This subject cannot be deleted because there still is data about them in studies.**, proceed as follows:
.. note::
- Go to the responsible person of the study
- Ask the responsible person to delete all collected data of the subject concerned
- You can find the responsible person by clicking on **Study details** next to
the study name the subject participated in
- Delete all of these study participations by clicking on **Delete** next to
**Study details**
There may still be data stored in a backup. Please check with your local IT
department to verify proper deletion.
