Sometimes we try to find study members using publicly available information on the internet and social media. This may involve carrying out internet searches, for example using Google, and searching on Facebook and other social media sites. We also know that it can be difficult to identify people accurately on the internet and social media. So, whenever we are searching in this way, we will not reveal the name of the study in case the person we contact isn’t one of our study members.
If you have given us details of your social media profiles, we may also try to contact you by sending you private messages via social media.
