Does Connect Maintain Personally Identifiable Information?
The short answer is no. Connect does not maintain any personally identifiable information about participants. Because payments are routed through PayPal and identity verification is done without invasive methods, Connect does not need personally identifiable information.
What information does Connect collect?
Connect gathers and maintains an email address and data that you provide about your age, race, ethnicity, gender, and other demographics. We use that information to send periodic updates about our platform and to determine projects you qualify for. We do not share or sell your data.
How Do I Turn on Study Notifications?
To receive notifications when studies you qualify for are posted to Connect:
Navigate to “Settings” via the sidebar menu
Within Settings, click on “Manage Notifications”
On the Notification Settings page, you can toggle the switch under the Email column to ‘on’ for whichever category you would like to receive email messages for.
What is Light Mode/Dark Mode, and How Do I Toggle Between Them?
Light mode and dark mode are display settings for user interfaces, such as a smartphone or computer. When a display is presented in light mode, dark text shows up against a light screen. In dark mode, the opposite occurs: light text is presented against a dark screen.
While there are several mixed opinions and scientific findings concerning the benefits of dark mode, advocates say it is easier on the eyes, better for low light settings, and consumes less electricity. We’re agnostic about the benefits of dark mode but we’ve programmed it into Connect all the same.
