You are being asked to participate in a survey about how the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic is affecting you. This survey is being managed by the International Brain Tumour Alliance (IBTA) and the Society for Neuro-Oncology (SNO) with support from a wide range of country-specific brain tumour charities and not-for-profit organisations around the world (see list below).

 The purpose of this survey is to provide the international brain tumour community with an understanding of how COVID-19 has affected you. We will only use the information you provide here to help understand valuable information about brain tumours and COVID-19.

You are under no obligation to participate in this survey. If you choose to do so, your replies will remain anonymous. In addition to your opinions in response to the survey questions, we will also collect some personal (“demographic”) information about you which will also remain anonymous. 

We respect your trust and desire for personal privacy and will not sell your personal information. Further, we will not share your personal information except on an anonymised basis as set out below.

The survey managers reserve the right to publish in electronic or any other formats (to be determined by the survey managers) the anonymised data collected in this survey. Such publication will include, but is not limited to, websites, newsletters, articles, presentations, journals and social media and will be available as so published including by individual access throughout the world and also in parts of the world where data protection measures are not equivalent to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
