This agreement states that, “Upon completion of this work described herein, all Restricted Data records shall be destroyed or returned … within 30 days of the completion of the work. In addition, the Institutional Review Board (IRB) protocol (UNC-IRB No. 15-1629) further outlines how the confidentiality of the data will be protected during analysis.
