How will my privacy be protected?

The Qanuippitaa? team takes the privacy and confidentiality of participants very seriously. All personal information, such as names and addresses, are stored separately from completed surveys. This means that no one will ever see a participant’s name and their answers together. All members of the Qanuippitaa? team, who have access to survey responses, have signed a Confidentiality Agreement, which protects the privacy of responses. All information provided by participants will be kept confidential and used only for statistical purposes. This means that the survey responses will be grouped together with many other responses and will be presented and reported in overall statistics.  One example of a statistic is, “the percentage of Inuit reporting excellent or very good health.”
