Information on Data Storage
This online study is conducted anonymously, which guarantees that the data will be stored and processed anonymously as well. The collected data will be stored digitally and protected with a password. After 10 years all personal data will be deleted as required by law.

Information on Data Usage
The anonymous data collected in this study will be used in the context of the VIRTUALTIMES project to inform the development of a virtual environment for the diagnosis and treatment of psychopathology. The results will be disseminated in academic publications and at conferences and other events. The data may also be used in the context of future studies. Anonymous participation guarantees that the data collected will not be connected to your identity.

Which Data is Collected and Analyzed?
You will be asked to provide demographic data (e.g. age, sex, level of education, mother tongue, knowledge of English language). You will not be asked to provide personal data that could be connected directly to your identity—such as your name. You will also be asked to provide data related to your subjective experience of the virtual spaces presented.

Withdrawal from the Study
You have the right to end your participation in this online study at any time without needing to provide a reason. Once the study is completed, it is not possible to withdraw your data, since these are collected anonymously and can therefore not be connected to your person. Deleting the data is not possible for the same reason.
