(TRNS) – Amid the growing concern over domestic surveillance policies, The White House has launched a survey aimed at gathering opinions from Americans on how they view data collection.

The survey asks users a series of questions such as who you trust with your online data, what information you as a user want to keep private, what types of data collection processes are concerning, and how important transparency about data collection is.

The survey comes as a result of President Obama’s pledge on January 17 when he called for a 90 day review of data collection and new ways to address privacy concerns. That effort is headed by White House Senior Counselor John Podesta.

“We know that this is a complicated issue,” Podesta said in a video message. “Technology is changing rapidly.”

The review is scheduled to be completed by the end of April, and the goal of the Obama administration is to better understand the current State of technology and how it relates to the use of ‘big data’ and how it can be dealt with better in away that respects the online privacy of Americans.

The complete survey can be found here.
