Informed consent for responsible, remote research

Make it easy to ask for consent. Make it painless to manage compliance. Scale it operationally at light speed.

Faster. Better. More compliant.

Help your team move from old, inefficient processes that make life difficult for you and your participants and start building trust through transparency today.

The old way

  • Spending an hour finding a decent consent form you can copy
  • Emailing people a PDF or Word doc, hoping they still have a printer so they can sign it
  • Using a survey tool that doesn’t let people change their mind about taking part
  • Spending half an hour in emails trying to figure out who has or hasn’t given consent yet
  • Leaving your consent forms in a drawer or locker somewhere
  • Having no idea what you have permission for and hoping that no-one asks
  • Forgetting to delete your research data
  • Breaking a sweat when someone tells you they want to withdraw from your research
  • Having mild panic attacks when you receive a data subject access request
  • Having to spend hours with the new person talking about admin when you leave or move to a new team

With Consent Kit

  • Generate a compliant consent form, specific to your research method in a few clicks
  • Use the same form to ask remotely, or in person. We automatically switch to a user friendly signature depending on how you ask
  • Participants keep a receipt of consent, which they can update if they want - notifying you if they do
  • Quickly track who has or has not agreed from the project dashboard
  • Consent is immediately backed up, safe and secure in the cloud
  • Linking research recordings to consent shows where everything is and what you have permissions for
  • We’ll send you reminders with links to delete when the retention policy in your consent form is about to expire
  • Respond to data access requests and initiate withdrawals from research in seconds, not weeks
  • Quickly assign or re-assign researchers to new projects. Assign as an owner and they receive all notifications and responsibilities.

Manage responsibilities around relationships

Your responsibilities don’t rest on a transaction.

They start as soon as you recruit and don’t stop until you delete or anonymise their data.
