FEMALE SPEAKER: With regards to the processing of data, Article 9 has the general provision about the ban on processing of sensitive data however it also, like the directive, provides for several exceptions. And consent is one of these exceptions like in the directive. It is possible to process sensitive data if it's necessary for health purposes, and subject to conditions and safeguards referred to in Article 81, which means safeguards of confidentiality and security of data. And finally importantly for this talk, processing is necessary for scientific research purposes, subject to the conditions and safeguards referred to in Article 83. This is very interesting. I will focus on that, let me just shortly summarize the consent provisions.
