What data does this survey gather?

Naturally, you're curious as to what data this survey gathers. When you start, you'll be asked one totally optional question: Your occupation. You do not have to answer this question! After that, the survey will create a session token cookie that helps us track and group your responses in our database.

From there, your responses will be gathered as you rate the quality of up to 25 images. If you have JavaScript turned on, and if your browser supports a number of APIs, performance timings will be captured with your responses. Performance timings tell us how fast images and pages are loading for you, which is a key part of our research. We will also capture your browser's user agent string.

We also use Google Analytics to gather specific information about your visit to this site. Stuff that helps us answer questions such as, but not limited to, "how long did this person spend on our site?" and "where in the world is this user accessing the survey from?" We pledge to you that we will not use this information to market products and services to you, but we obviously can't make any guarantees as to what Google will do with the information it collects.

What will you do with the data you collect?

This survey will run until we've captured what we deem enough data to analyze. Collected data may be used in media including (but not limited to) articles, presentations, videos or books. By taking this survey, you consent to having your responses used in any of the aforementioned media.

OK, I'm in Thanks, but I'll pass
