Research Participant

Information All responses to our research are completely confidential. We collect data in our studies for research purposes only, and our use of that information will be limited to that purpose. Research participant answers will not be used by any entity as an aid for sales. Research participation is voluntary and sample members always have the opportunity to decline involvement or to “opt out” of the research after agreeing to participate. We do not collect personal information without research participant consent. We will inform participants about the purpose for which we collect and use information about them, how to contact us with any inquiries or complaints, the types of third parties to which we disclose information, and the choices and means we offer participants for limiting use and disclosure. All studies provide a toll-free contact number or an email address to decline participation. We do not rent, sell or give personal information to any third party for the purpose of directly marketing any products or services. In some cases we may need to share personal information with third parties that provide research services in support of the research project. Any third party that receives personal information is obligated to follow all of the same privacy protection regulations as followed by Karlin Research. At their request, we give research participants access to the personal information we have collected about them. Individuals will be able to correct any information that is inaccurate or incomplete, change their consent status, or have their personal information deleted.
