Information and consent
Do I have to give information to the sample?
As a main rule, you are obligated to inform the person(s) you are going to collect personal data about. This is a fundamental right that is entrenched in Norwegian law. The obligation to inform applies irrespective of the requirement to gain consent.
Generally the information is to be given individually (for instance via letter/e-mail). If it is not possible to give information individually, it is possible to give collective information (for instance in newspaper/membership magazine, notice in institution, webpage, notice in the area where observation will be done).
