Do I have to take part? Participation in this study is voluntary. You do not have to become involved nor do you have to give any explanation for choosing not to participate. Should you choose to participate in the study, you are free to terminate your participation at any point without having to give an explanation and with no consequences to yourself or adverse effects on your rights. However, once you have completed the questionnaire the data cannot be removed, unless you can recall all your answers, as the data is all anonymous.
