Terms of Service
Welcome to Citizen Science!
This project is led by
Dr. Linda Li
at the University of British Columbia. Your participation is entirely voluntary, and you have the right to withdraw from the project whenever you want. If you decide to stop participating, you can simply stop using this website or
delete your account.
There are no known risks associated with using the website. The potential benefit of participating is that you will be able to try out a new website designed to change the public’s involvement in generating questions for health research. In other words, your contributions are important, as your experience with your symptoms will help to generate meaningful research questions to help researchers better understand the reality of how symptoms such as pain affect people differently.
Any data that is made publicly available through publication will be de-identified. That means your name and any other information that can identify you personally will not be used. Making the de-identified data publicly available should pose no risk to your privacy. It should be noted that once the data is made publicly available, you will not be able to withdraw this data. Visit our
for more information on how Citizen Science has taken actions to minimize confidentiality risks. Please also visit the FAQ section for more information if you have
concerns about your rights.
Feel free to
