From time to time we do research to see what strategies are most helpful to parents and to make improvements. In some cases, we work with outside parties (e.g., university researchers) to implement this research and analyze data. We don’t share your identifiable information with outside researchers unless it was provided by you in a user survey or already publicly available.
