How your information is protected

Keeping your information safe is important to us. We take your privacy very seriously. We always check to make sure you are the person chosen for the survey before we go into detail about the survey. This way, we do not give your private information to others by mistake.

We will not put your name on the survey; instead, we use a random number. To further protect you, when we share the data, we group everyone's answers together. That way, no one can find out your information from the data that we share.
