Our pledge to you
We respect your wishes
Taking part is voluntary and you do not have to answer any questions you don’t want to. Just let your interviewer or nurse know and they will move on to the next question.
We answer your questions
Your interviewer or nurse will be happy to answer any questions you have about the study which aren’t covered here.
We ensure you safety
All our interviewers and nurses carry photographic ID cards and have been checked by the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly the Criminal Records Bureau). We welcome any feedback you have about your experience with our interviewers.
We guard your privacy
We take great care to protect the confidentiality of the information people give us and we take careful steps to ensure that the information is secure at all times. Your answers are put together with the answers collected from thousands of other people across the UK and the survey findings are published in a report.
We will handle your data in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The survey findings are anonymised and nothing we publish will identify you or anyone else who took part in the survey. The results collected will help inform official statistics on diet and nutrition.
