This app is part of an on-going project on smoking cessation. The data you enter will help researchers better understand how to help more people quit smoking. You are free to use the app without taking part in the research but the more you contribute the more we will learn. It also seems the more you contribute the better your chance of success.
Before you make your decision I need to formally explain what’s involved.
You are being invited to participate in a study looking at smoking cessation. The study is being conducted as part of my PhD in Psychology.
All your information will be held anonymously and securely. You are not obliged to take part in this study and you should not feel coerced. If you choose to withdraw you may do so without disadvantage to yourself and without any obligation to give a reason. To withdraw please go to the Help tab of the app and choose "Opt out of the experiment".
Your information will be used by myself and will be open-sourced so that other researchers can make use of it. Please note, the only personal information that will be collected or shared is that of your age. Therefore, it is extremely unlikely your data could be traced back to you.
Please feel free to ask me any questions on firstname.lastname@example.org.
