Information sheet and Consent

PLEASE READ THIS IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
 
 
This study is being conducted by a research team at the University of Wolverhampton led by Drs Alison Attrill-Smith and Caroline Wesson. It requires you to complete a series of questions around your views on sharing sexually explicit images online. 
 
Please note that you will be asked about the likelihood of sharing and receiving sexually explicit images. If you do not feel comfortable sharing this information anonymously with us, please exit the study. You are under no obligation to complete it. 
 
You will not be asked to provide your name or other identifying information. This is a very brief survey, we don't anticipate it taking longer than 15 minutes to complete, but there is no fixed time. All we ask is that if you start the survey, please complete it in one go, otherwise you will be locked out and your contribution will not be complete. 

Please note:

1. You must be aged 18 or over to take part in this study.

2. You can withdraw from this study at any time and for any reason without any adverse consequences. If you do wish to withdraw please simply click on the exit button at the top of the page, that will be present throughout the study. Please note that once you submit your data via the Submit button at the end of the study, you will no longer be able to withdraw your contribution from the study.

3. The online survey tool will record your IP address to avoid duplication - your IP address simply records a device, it does not tell us who you are. This does not mean that you are identifiable, we use this to avoid duplicated completions. When the data is downloaded, this information is removed and your responses will be anonymous.

4. All of your answers will be confidential and anonymous. At no point will you be required to provide identifying information about yourself, such as your name. Please note that by completing the questionnaire, you are giving your full and informed consent to your data being added to the overall data set for analyses.

5. Your data will be pooled with data from other participants and analysed at the group level. Your individual data will not be identifiable. The only people who will have access to the anonymised data will be the main researchers. Other researchers may access the pooled data should they work on the publication or dissemination thereof. It is important to note that at no point will any of these individuals be able to link the data back to you. 

If you have any questions at all then please do not hesitate to contact one of the research team.
