The research programme is 3 years in duration.

Procedures, risks, and benefits to the participants

Usage data is gathered anonymously and stored remotely for each user. There is no risk of anyone being personally identified from the usage data. Our researchers will use the data to look at how you use and benefit from remembering your past as a person living with dementia or a carer of a person living with dementia. We may also use the data to improve the app.

Information about confidentiality and handling of data (including any sharing with third parties)

The data is anonymous and will be used only for scientific research carried out by Ulster University. The data will be stored in Ulster University cloud-based secure computing resources and will not be shared with any third parties.

Photos, videos and audio will only be stored locally on your own device (phone/tablet) which will not be available to anyone else but you. In addition, users can backup these media using the iOS or Android backup facilities.
