CAVEAT.
Having just filled in the survey in a burst of altruism, I was miffed to find that I had wasted my time, since I do not wish to supply my email and other details. It should be made clear that respondenst are also obliged to submit their contact details.

FYI, the machine translated texts are pretty duff overall, and the style of the original English also seems rather simple, perhaps aimed at a school-age audience.
