How we'll use your responses

After the consultation has closed your responses will be independently analysed and help us finalise our standards later this year.

Your personal data will be collected and stored in line with our privacy policy. The survey data will be anonymised (this means removing anything that could identify you or anyone else talked about in the data).

The anonymised data will be used in our reports and potentially in academic articles. The anonymised data may also be stored so other users can access it in the future.
