ABOUT THE PROJECT

We know that parents want to support and encourage their children's creative use of technology. We want to figure out the best way to help you to do that. This survey is designed to find out about the way you and your family feel about and use technology now so that we can use the experiences of real people to help design workshops and other supports for families. 

WHAT IS IN THE SURVEY
• You will be asked to confirm that you are over 18 and consent to completing the survey.

KEEPING YOU AND YOUR DATA SAFE
Our team are Garda vetted which means we are approved to work with families and children. Any responses that you give will not be linked to you or your family or your location. That means that we will process and store all the answers that you give to us in a way that means that you or your family members cannot be identified.

We will store your data on a secure password-protected server in Trinity College Dublin which only the project team will have access to. No hard copies of the data will be stored. Our project team promise to look after your data. However you should be aware that since your data is fully anonymous, it is not possible to remove it after submission. If you are at all worried about how your data is kept please email us at contact@ourkidscode.ie and we can answer your questions.

It’s very unlikely, but we have to advise you that if we find out about any illegal activities when we’re collecting answers to the survey, child protection law means that we have to let the authorities know

PRIVACY AND PUBLICATION
There may be media reporting, lectures, conference presentations and academic publications written as a result of this survey, however you and your child/children will not be identified. Our reporting and published results will not include any information that would identify you or your child/children.
