FAQ for Research Participants

What kind of research does RySense do?

We systematically collect and interpret information using statistical and analytical methods and techniques of the applied social sciences. The research areas we focus on include social trends and public opinion.

How do you choose/identify people to participate in the research?

Our research participants are randomly selected from the population and asked to voluntarily participate in the research if they meet the profile of interest for that study.

My number is in the Do Not Call (DNC) Registry. Why are you still calling me?

The DNC registry is meant for telemarketing calls or commercial messages. Our work is not covered under this as it is meant for research purposes only.

For more information on the DNC registry, you may wish to visit the Personal Data Protection Commission’s website at www.pdpc.gov.sg

Will I be identified from my responses?

All responses are anonymised, summarised and reported based on general trends. Personal information is kept confidential and separated from your answers prior to analysis, so that individual research participants’ identities cannot be traced from the results.

How will you use my personal data or the responses I shared? What is Rysense’s data protection / privacy policy?

We adhere to market and social research standards and ethics, and are committed to protecting the personal information of our research participants:

  • Participation in our research is completely voluntary, and recording of your responses is only done with your consent.
  • Participants have the right to refuse to answer any question and/or to discontinue participation in the research at any point.
  • We do not use your personal data or information for marketing or sales purposes.
