SMART Privacy Policy:

Research staff will keep your name and other contact information linked to your study ID number in a password protected computer file on a password protected server at Northwestern University. Only the research staff that need this information to contact you will have access to it. We will only contact you using contact information that you have approved, and we will use discretion if you request it (this means we will not tell anyone who is calling or why we are calling). The link between your study ID name and your contact information will be destroyed after the completion of the study. The data that only has your ID number on it will not be destroyed. The information from this study may be published in scientific journals or presented at scientific meetings, but your identity will be kept private. We have obtained a Certificate of Confidentiality from the federal government to help protect your confidentiality. However, we may still be required under certain circumstances to release your information.
