Thank you for your interest in our study.
With your help, we would like to learn more about the impact the
COVID-19-pandemic (coronavirus) has on the lives of individuals – how it has
affected your mood, how you have been coping and how this will change over
time. Some of our questions may not seem to be
directly related to the coronavirus pandemic at first glance. These will allow
us to find out to what extent general attitudes and strategies have an impact
on the experience of and coping with the current situation.
By participating in this study,
you will enable us to better understand how we all react in situations such as
this, in order for us to be better equipped to deal with the current and future
situations as individuals as well as societies.
If you agree to participate in this
international study, we will ask you to provide us with information regarding
yourself and your living conditions. This will take approximately 20 - 25 minutes. Then, we will contact you in intervals of five weeks for another five questionnaires.
It would be great if you continued participating
until the end. Should you be unable to participate in individual questionnaires, you can simply resume your participation the next time we

no time can your answers be traced back to your identity. Data collection
complies with the European General Data Protection Regulation. You may
discontinue your participation in this study at any time without stating a

that your data is more valuable for research the more complete it is.
In order for you to be reminded to participate in the
weekly questions, your e-mail address will be requested. This address will be
stored separately from your other data so that this, too, cannot be used to
trace your answers back to your identity. All e-mail addresses will be deleted
after termination of the study.
