We are committed to clearly describing to Respondents how their information may be collected and used. Our technology is used to measure the effectiveness of digital advertisements and is used, for example, (i) by website publishers to launch invitations to complete market research surveys, (ii) by advertisers that have asked us to perform research for them to measure the impact of advertising in leading to certain decisions, such as making a purchase and (iii) by advertisers to study the influence of digital communications in forming brand or product preferences.
Personal Information about Respondents

We maintain this personal information in a database, and may use this information to invite you to participate in future surveys, provided you have consented to receiving email or mobile communications from us. Your decision to participate in our surveys is completely at your discretion.
We may use the information we have about you to match it with other public and private data sources maintained by third parties in order to enhance our records, such as appending additional information about you to the database that we maintain which is associated with a unique identifier for you.
We do not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under the age of 13. If we become aware that we have collected personal information from anyone under the age of 13 without appropriate consent as required by applicable law, we will delete this information from our database of active Respondents.
