By agreeing to partake in this research project:

-I understand that my identity is not revealed in my answers, unless I willingly provide my own contact information, and that all future published data will have no identification of participants.

-I do not need to leave my email.

-By leaving my email, my answers may be linked to my identity. I understand that because sensitive information is asked in this survey that, if I leave my email, my email would be removed before any data analysis is conducted.

-Only Dr. Kalkstein will have a link between my data and my email. The email will only be used to contact me for clarification or follow-up questions. If I choose to leave my email and then decide I want to retract the data, I may contact the Dr. Kalkstein to have that done.

-I understand that I do not have to complete questions I am not comfortable answering.

-I understand that online communication is at greater risk for hacking, intrusions, and other violations of privacy, confidentiality, and anonymity.

It will take approximately 25 minutes to complete the survey.
