Informed consent is the process in which a health care provider educates a patient about the risks, benefits, and alternatives of a given procedure or intervention. The patient must be competent to make a voluntary decision about whether to undergo the procedure or intervention.
Pseudonymisation is a process that allows to switch the original data set (for example data subjects' e-mail or a name) with an alias or pseudonym. Pseudonymization is a reversible process, that de-identifies data but allows the reidentification later on if necessary. The personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
