Ethics approval and consent to participate
: Ethics approval to access the data was obtained from the Curtin University Human Research Ethics Committee (ethics approval number: RDHS-239-15). All respondents provided online consent at the time of completing the surveys. As per the National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research (2007, Chapter 4, paragraph 4.2.6), the researchers had been attentive to the developmental level of potential participants (including minors) in this study when engaging them in understanding the nature and likely outcomes of this study. The researchers were of the opinion that any minors participating in this study would be mature enough to understand and consent, and not vulnerable through immaturity in ways that would warrant additional consent from a parent or guardian (National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research, 2007, Chapter 4, paragraph 4.2.8). Combined with the low level of risk involved in participation, the Ethics Committee approved a waiver of parental/guardian consent from those aged less than 18 years. Also, as the survey was online, parental consent could not be validated.
