Consenting Procedure: Describe the consenting procedure, whether participation is completely voluntary, whether the participants can withdraw at any time without penalty, the procedures for withdrawing, and whether an incentive (describe it) will be offered for participation. If a vulnerable population is recruited, describe the measures that will be taken to obtain consent (e.g., cognitively impaired participants, prisoners, pregnant women, HIV/AID participants) or assent from minors and permission from parents of minors. Participation will be completely voluntary, with the participants free to withdraw from the study anytime they wish without any penalty. However, they will need submit a written notice three days in advance indicating their reasons for withdrawing from the study. There will be no incentive for participation. The measures to obtain consent for the participants will entail adhering to the code of ethics for research which will protect the participants from unjustifiable deception, physical or psychological harm, and also protect their privacy and confidentiality.
