Summaries of non-personal data (data that cannot be in any way connected to you) such as your demographics (e.g., age, sex) and results from the hazard perception test may be retained by us long-term, as part of a larger data set and used for publication. Remember, any data you provide will be in an anonymous form and individual identification from this will not be possible.
