If I take part in this research, how will my privacy be protected? What happens to the information you collect?
The data we collect will be private and confidential. We are only collecting your first name on this form and your email address to be able to pay you. We will keep your email address separate from all other data, and label your data with a code number instead. Although IDs will be linked to email addresses throughout the study to make sure we can pay you, your email address will be deleted within 1 year of study completion, and after we have sent you your gift cards. Your responses to our questions (separate from your name or any identifying information) will be kept forever for the purposes of future analyses. We would also like to note that our research is approved by Institutional Review Board (IRB) and you can always find more about them at: https://cuhs.harvard.edu/
