Your participation in this research is voluntary.  You may choose not to participate.  If you decide to participate in this research survey, you may withdraw at any time.  If you choose to participate, you may decline to answer any question that you are not comfortable answering.  Choosing to participate or not to participate will not affect your employment or professional standing in any way.  Your decision to participate or not to participate will be kept confidential.  

To protect the confidentiality of your responses, only the Principal Investigator, Donald Humpert, will have access to the SurveyMonkey account being used to implement this survey.  This is an anonymous survey; neither your email address nor IP address will be displayed in collected data.  Your name will only appear on this informed consent page.  To keep your identity separate from your response data, the Principal Investigator has used the “sort” feature to create two views of the data collected: one showing only the pages with informed consent agreements, and another view showing only item responses with no identifying information.    

All data analysis will be conducted on a dataset exported from SurveyMonkey® with no personally identifying information to a temporary folder on the Principal Investigator’s hard drive which will be excluded from both physical and cloud-based backups.  No data on the hard drive can be accessed without entering the correct 15-digit password at login.  

During analysis, data will be able to be associated with a specific participant by respondent number.  Should you desire to be removed from the study at any time, your data will be deleted from the analysis dataset.  If you decide to opt out of the study after you have completed the survey, inform Donald Humpert of your decision via e-mail at or telephonically at (443) 845-5352.
