We collect the following information about visitors to our site:
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that was extracted from public sources or which you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
Any information we gather, except for the email address we use to contact you, will be shared on our website.
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do this by following the appropriate link in the email we sent to you.
We discourage authors from forwarding survey emails they receive from us. Distinct survey emails are sent to each author of a paper. Each email includes a link to a survey that is unique to the receiving author. Forwarding this email/link to others would allow recipients to impersonate the author when answering the survey. Similarly, our website logs of visits to survey pages would attribute the visit to the author who originally received the email/link.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Only employee/research assistants who need the information to perform a specific job is granted access to your information. The computers/servers in which we store this information are kept in a secure environment.
