Rights Almost all of the data are collected from the public record. The only personal data collected include the characteristics of members of boards, and where possible this information is collected directly from members of each board. The data collected in interviews are kept anonymous, and human subjects IRB approval will be obtained for data that apply to individuals, such as board members. Since they are public figures, this information is largely in the public realm already.
