Survey Confidentiality

Questions may be more sensitive than we realize. To help ensure confidentiality, you should only require a minimal amount of information that would be used to identify a survey participant. In addition, the surveying company's staff or employees should not use or discuss information that would identify the participants for anything other than the purpose for which the survey was conducted or for collecting follow up information from participants.

If information is going to be distributed, the information that identifies participants should be withheld or masked to avoid the revealing of participants.
