The methodological paper will discuss in detail the methodological and technical we have undertaken to ensure this high standard. These measure extend from standard privacy protocols, to providing respondents with high-quality VPN services that to a degree prevents online fingerprinting by masking their exact whereabouts, browser and system details, and IP addresses when they partake in our survey.
