In the present paper, two studies are presented in which people’s privacy concerns are studied in light of their willingness to disclose personal information to web-based surveys. In Study 1, measures of privacy concern are collected, followed six weeks later by a request to complete a web-based survey containing requests for sensitive personal information, alongside measures of trust in the requestor, and perceived privacy related to the specific request (n= 759). Structural equation modelling identified two privacyrelated pathways determining self-disclosure: one based on respondents’ perceived privacy and trust (a situational pathway), the other respondents’ general privacy concerns and privacy-protecting behaviours (a dispositional pathway). In Study 2, privacy and trust were experimentally manipulated, and disclosure to a web-based survey measured. The results indicated that the impact of low privacy on self-disclosure is moderated by trust, such that high trust compensates for low privacy when examining item non-response. Implications for understanding the links between privacy attitudes, design of web-based surveys and item nonresponse to sensitive items, are discussed.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Paine, Carina B.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Joinson, Adam N.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Joinson, Adam N.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Buchanan, Tom</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
