As this is a research study, researchers from Lancaster University will collect three types of data in our research. Firstly, we will record data automatically from your use of the Smart Donations application. This includes details about the pledges you set up and nformation when and how you used the app.
We only record data and information in your use of the app and will never record any other data or information about how you use your phone or any other apps on your phone, such as your calls, contacts, location, internet use etc.,
Secondly, we will gather research data from voluntary questionnaires you can fill in before, during and after the pilot. Questionnaires will focus on your familiarity with technology, your charitable giving and your use and experiences of the app.
Thirdly, we will gather research data from phone interviews with some participants. It is not mandatory to take part in the phone interviews, and we will only contact participants that explicitly gave consent for participating in those.
