Privacy Policy

We are committed to protecting your privacy. If you choose to participate in one of our studies, you will be presented with a consent form which describes the nature of the information you are providing to us and how we plan to use and safeguard it. Typically you will respond to a few survey questions and/or complete a experimental task. We deliberately avoid asking questions likely to have sensitive answers. We make every effort to ensure the anonymity of all study participants. When you participate, we avoid associating potentially identifying information such as your IP address. If you choose to make a user account, your email and password will be stored using secure encryption. You can delete your account at any time, removing any identifiable personal data from our database. Research on this website has received ethics approval from the Committee for the Protection of Human Subjects at Dartmouth College.

Data you provide will be used for the purposes of scientific research. We will never sell any of your information for commercial purposes. Anonymized data from some studies may be shared for scientific research purposes using established public academic data repositories. Results from our research will appear in formal and informal publications, but identifiable personal data will not be made public. Specific descriptions of the purpose of each study may be found in the consent forms at the beginning of each study, and in the debriefing pages after the experiments.
