Consent preamble on a survey that you're taking said "You can choose to withdraw at any time by closing your browser or navigating away."

After you complete about half of the survey, you decide that you don't want to finish it and close the browser.

What do you expect the researchers to do with the partial data you submitted?

For context, I discussing this with a research team and was surprised they wanted to keep the partial data. Given the preamble, keeping the data seems unethical.

They have since changed their mind. \o/

@dbs I wouldn't have thought that whatever I'd put in was correctly saved, tbh
