Identifying information will be kept in locked cabinets in the study coordinator’s office. As such, research assistants will only be provided with a unique number that has been given to each participant upon enrollment in the study. As we will be assessing various parameters that are dependent on age, we will need to retain the participants’ date of birth in order to calculate their age at each assessment period. This is crucial to our data analysis, which will begin once data collection is complete.

Data storage will be in secure servers requiring two-factor authentication. Data are backed up at a remote site for safety in the event of a natural disaster. Participant files will also be stored in a locked cabinet in the study coordinator’s office, to which only the study coordinator and primary investigator possess a key.
