I didn't provided any personal information other than my country and 
birthyear. As for my email, I always use the one I have for all the SPAM 
I'd like to subscribe to :)

Registration is rather different from confirming your email (which 
prevents filling the DB multiple times by spambots/yourself, thus 
screwing the survey). Who's behind it, its purpose, privacy, etc., 
please read the FAQ:
