Poor form to start w/ personal information and demographics. Surveys should start with topical questions to build rapport. Initials, age, email address, all right up front, are certain to make response rates nosedive.

Can you say why initials and email address are needed? There's no explanation up front, other than that you provide a guarantee of confidentiality (rather than anonymity).
