Consent is required before collecting any personal data or information including photos and videos. Getting informed consent is simple and straight forward with IOM’s Community Response App, an interactive mobile app which can be used anywhere in the world, online or offline to enable individuals to make informed decisions about the use of their personal information.
Designed by and for IOM field staff, the Community Response App helps demonstrate the impact of projects to key stakeholders by capturing feedback and testimonials of migrants, including their personal journeys, achievements, and challenges.
Informed consent is obligatory whenever data, photos, or video are collected. The App makes it easy to get informed consent with the app’s user-friendly digital consent form. Collecting and storing names and contact details of every person photographed or filmed, and ensuring everyone understands how and why their data will be used, protecting the vulnerable who lack functional literacy and ensuring full comprehension.
The Community Response Map dashboard puts the information collected from the app right at your fingertips. Authorized staff and partners can access real-time quantitative and qualitative feedback collected in the field. All personal information is encrypted in accordance with IOM data protection principles while an overview of the feedback received is publicly available for sharing with key stakeholders.
