Hi Anastasios

I'm with your first responder on this list re the paid/unpaid, hobby 
question and I haven't looked at the remainder of the questionnaire yet.

I would also prefer to see some link to your research centre within LSE.  
If you are on a taught MSc and this is your research project, what 
Department are you in and the title of your course e.g. MSc in Applied 
Psychology, Sociology ?  I find a link to the generic LSE company statement

While you are not necessarily involved in unique research, would you also 
please state what the association of the domain name holder's company, 
Survey Analytics LLC is to LSE, yourself and your project and what 
agreement you have entered into with Survey Analytics to stage your 
questionnaire through their facilities?  

Do they provide you with a statistical analysis of your data as well as the 
raw data and what else do they do with the raw data collected?  Have you, 
for example, agreed they can sell it on to others reearching the same area 
or are you paying for the use of their survey engine?

Regards and good luck
