How do you use my email address?
Your email address is used for service-related notifications, new study notifications, and other Research And Me news and promotions. We do not send spam or other unsolicited bulk email, and you can unsubscribe from an email by simply clicking the Unsubscribe link in the footer.
Additionally, if you register for a study and are approved for participation, your email address and other demographic information is provided to the researcher. Research And Me does not review, monitor, or manage direct communication between you and the researcher administering the study.
How do you use my phone number?
Your phone number is only provided to a researcher when you register for their study and are approved for participation. It is not considered a part of your profile and is requested each time you register for a study.
How do I unsubscribe from Research And Me emails?
You can control the emails you receive using the Contact Preferences section of your Account. Note that you cannot unsubscribe from system-related emails sent in direct response to account actions, nor can you unsubscribe from emails related to a study that you have registered for. If you do not wish to receive these emails, simply discontinue using Research And Me.
How do you use my ZIP Code? What's a Search Radius?
Your ZIP Code is used to identify your approximate geographic location, so that Nearby Studies can be determined. The Search Radius allows you to control how close a study must be to be considered "nearby".
How do you use my gender and age?
This demographic information is provided to researchers to help determine study eligibility. Note that neither your birthday nor your exact age are disclosed. Only a multi-year age range is provided to the researcher.
My old ResearchChicago account contained more information. What happened to it?
It's no longer needed - Research And Me uses an innovative new approach to determine study eligibility. Your old profile will be taken offline and permanently deleted once the site migration is completed.
