If you require participants to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA), we can provide guidance. However, our system does not support creating, sending, or receiving attachments. Our internal team is unable to distribute or collect any documents pertaining to your project.
Below are recommendations we've found to be useful for researchers who would like to distribute and collect NDAs.
This option is ideal if you need NDAs signed as part of the application process. Create a online document (we recommend DocuSign, PandaDoc, or SignEasy) with a shareable link. Add a screener question to your survey. Your screener question could look like this:
This is ideal if you need the NDA completed before the session, but not as part of the application process. There are a few options here:
If you can wait until the day of your study, ask participants to arrive 10-15 minutes early to their session. There are two ways to do this:
If you go with this option, be sure to get consent from participants that they would be willing to sign an NDA as part of their participation (see next section).
If an NDA is required, we recommend that you let participants know in case this changes their interest in the study. Here's an example question you can add to your screener survey:
"All participants selected for this study will be required to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) in order to participate. Based on this requirement, are you still interested in participating in the study, if selected?"
- Yes, and I agree to sign an NDA (Accept)
- No, I do not agree to sign an NDA (Reject)
