Privacy Study Looking for Volunteers

Andrea Forte

Hi all,

If you would like to help us out, you need to read and complete the online consent form linked here and we will get in contact with you:

We are planning to conduct interviews that will last anywhere from 30-90 minutes (depending on how much you have to say) by phone or Skype and we can offer you $20 for your time, but you do not need to accept payment to participate.

Thanks for considering it, please contact me if you have questions!
