C. How We Use the Information You Provide Us

  • Information you provide during the recruitment process is used to determine eligibility for participation in one of our panels. After you join a panel, we use the information we collect to create a variety of research insights for our clients. We use tools and methods to make sure that there is no reasonable possibility of identifying an individual participant in the reports that we create for our clients. For example, we combine the responses we collect from you with the responses of others to produce "aggregated" reports. We also create scientific reports based upon modeled information. "Modeled information" is data we have developed based upon demographic and behavioral characteristics (like your gender, age, and purchasing habits to predict what people with similar or matching characteristics would buy. For instance, this allows advertisers to identify the likely audience for a marketing campaign.

Our research insights help our clients make choices about where and how they advertise, including on print, broadcast television, radio, online, mobile and voice. Among other things, our solutions have helped clients:

    • Understand which Alexa skills appeal to female viewers

    • Understand the makeup of the audience that was shown an advertisement while surfing the Internet or interacting with social media

    • Identify the types of electronic products consumers in different demographic groups would be likely to buy

    • Determine the audience that would be more likely to respond to a particular advertisement online, on a smartphone, or tablet

    • Whether residents in a particular neighborhood would be likely to shop at a specialty store if it was nearby

    • Understand the media and purchasing habits of different types of potential voters

  • We may use the information you give us to contact you. When we contact you - by phone, email, SMS, or postal mail depending on what information you provide to us - we will usually do so for one of the following reasons:

    • to respond to your inquiries;

    • to validate answers you gave;

    • to update our records to ensure your information is correct;

    • to ensure that the software is working properly;

    • to send you information regarding your participation such as how to redeem rewards;

    • process and deliver sweepstakes and contest entries and rewards;

    • communicate with you about new sweepstakes, contests, promotions, rewards, upcoming events, and other news about products and services offered by us and our selected partners;

    • to provide notice regarding changes to our terms, conditions, and policies;

    • to ensure compliance with terms of active panel membership; or

    • to offer you expanded research opportunities through panels and surveys.

By participating in our research, you agree to be contacted as described above, and also agree to receive push notifications through our software.

  • We may also use the information for business purposes, such as data analysis, audits, developing new products, enhancing our Site or software, improving our services, identifying usage trends and determining the effectiveness of our communications.

If we combine non-personal information with personal identifying information, the combined information will be treated by us as personal identifying information as long as it is combined.

F. About Children

For our research, we collect information about every member of your household and this includes any children in your household. If we collect information about children, we take special care.

These tools collect personal identifying information from children under age 13. For example, when children use computers, mobile devices, smart speakers or other devices from which our technology measures media consumption, we use persistent identifiers to collect and track certain information from the child. We may use such means as IP addresses, MAC addresses, or other unique device identifiers to collect and track such information as the content, including ads and videos that the child viewed and/or, to which the child was exposed. For more information on our collection and use practices for all panelists, including children under age 13, please see sections B, C, and G of this Notice.
