Privacy Policy

We take great care to protect you and your data. Should you share any information with us, either by participating in a study on The Person Project or by registering for an account with The Person Project, your information will be stored in an encrypted form in a secure and password-protected database. Your personal information will not be shared with anyone outside of the research team.

When you participate in a study, you will be asked to respond to words or pictures on your computer screen, and/or answer questions about yourself or about other people. Specific information for each study will be provided in a consent form prior to the start of the study. We take care to avoid asking questions of a very private nature. Should any questions make you feel uncomfortable, you have the option to skip that question. You are also free to end any study at any time by closing your browser window. Your participation in this project is completely voluntary, and you may discontinue your participation at any point. If you have an account with us, you are free to delete your account at any time.

Our goal is to combine your data with the data from participants like you, in order to answer research questions about why people do what they do. Anonymized data from your participation may be shared with other researchers or submitted to a repository as part of a dataset that is publicly available and can be used to answer further research questions. This dataset will not include any information that can be used to uniquely identify you, and will be used solely for research purposes. We will never sell your data. We may change this Privacy Statement in the future. If we do, we will post any changes to this page promptly. This statement is effective as of June 7, 2018.
