I asked the UThink people this very question last year, and they did say it was prohibited.  But I'm just the messenger here, so I can't provide details or explanations...

I'm working with a psychologist who is studying 2-year old temper tantrums. His goal is to
get several hundred people to send in video recordings of their children throwing fits. The
researcher is offering $75 in compensation for the footage. Proper privacy protocol will be
followed with the tapes.

My question is this: are there any U of M policies that prohibit the use of a Google Ad Words
campaign to drive traffic to a uThink blog set up to explain the study and solicit videos?

Many thanks.
