There are several ethical considerations involved in our study. Part of our methodology will involve showing participants pictures of people and having them comment on whether the people in the pictures are beautiful, in their eyes, or not. Therefore we must make sure that the pictures of the people that we use were collected ethically and legally. We must check for copyrights and take into account what we are allowed to use the pictures for, and properly explain where we got the pictures from.
Also, our study involves interviews. We must make sure that participants agree to participate in our study. We must make sure that they understand their freedom to withdraw from the study at any moment, and most importantly we must ensure our participants confidentiality. For participants who want to remain anonymous, we must make sure to securely protect their identity. Sarah and I will do our best to make sure that the participants involved in our study are protected, and agree to all the terms that we present before them.
