Important Note on Use of Quantitative Surveys  for Research

In order to protect the privacy of human research subjects' personal information and to conform to all provincial and federal legislative requirements for privacy and data storage in Canada, all StFX research involving online surveys or questionnaires must use the Qualtrics Survey Software or another Canadian-based product.  Researchers may not use SurveyMonkey or LimeSurvey, which are based in the United States and can be accessed without a court order by the FBI under the American Patriot Act.
