Response Patterns in Computer-Administered Surveys
Unformatted Document Text:  Computer Administered Surveys 14 Participants use built-in browser capabilities to block cookies. 3 3.5% Participants who do not know what cookies are. 38 44.2% Participants who block cookies. 17 19.8% Participants who do not block cookies. 31 36.0% Table 4 shows that, of the 90 participants in the Hypothesis 1 Group, only 50.0% of them could correctly define a cookie.

Table 4 shows that, of the 90 participants in the Hypothesis 1 Group, only 50.0% of them
could correctly define a cookie. Furthermore, despite reported knowledge from Question 17,
Question 24 indicated that only 19.8% of participants who knew what cookies were chose to
protect themselves from the possible danger inherent in an unknown Internet source placing a
possibly-malicious piece of code on one’s system.
Research Question 2
Research Question 2 (Will users who do not accept cookies be more likely to have
stronger concerns about Internet privacy than users who do accept cookies?) incorporated
responses from Questions 5 (How concerned are you about the privacy of the personal
information you have shared on the Internet to this date?, shown in Table 6) and 12 (Have you
ever sent personal information in an e-mail?, shown in Table 7). Despite no real identifying
information being provided to participants in the study, there was an approximate 50-50 split
in the RQ 2 group when it came to concern over the privacy of personal information already
shared on the Internet.
