We will never release your personal information or release results in a way that would make it easy for someone to identify you. We work very hard to protect the privacy of your responses and any personal information that can identify you will be removed from the data before sharing the results.

The survey findings will be shared with researchers for research purposes. Eventually, the results will be published in academic journals and the popular press. All survey findings will be provided without any personally identifiable information, such as your name or contact information. This information will be removed from the results and will not be shared with anyone.
