Your decisions about participating in a survey, responding to specific questions, or discontinuing participation will be respected without question.

Occasionally, we may wish to contact you by telephone or email in order to validate or follow up your response and gather further information regarding your organisation's needs. However, you may select to opt out of this at the end of the survey.
