Personal Information does not include de-identified or aggregated consumer information.

We may share the information we collect from and about you with select partners and service providers as well as third parties such as our clients.

If you are a California resident, you may have additional rights. Please see our California Privacy Rights section below for more information.
We collect information in three different ways: (1) information you provide to us; (2) information we receive from third parties; and (3) information collected through various automated collection technologies.
Information You Provide. When you use or participate in the Services (such as visiting our Sites, completing a survey on a survey platform, or attending one of our screenings or other research sessions) or otherwise correspond with us, we and our service providers collect Personal Information you provide to us. Personal Information collected in this manner includes contact information such as your email address, name, and zip code, as well as your race, ethnicity, income level, gender, date of birth, parental status, education level and financial information. If you respond to a job posting or apply for employment with us, we collect Personal Information you provide in your application, resume, or other communications.
Information From Third Parties. We may receive Personal Information from other sources. For example, if you connect your social media account(s) to your profile with us, the social media site may share information with us about your use of their services, including information about your profile, contacts, and viewed or liked content. We encourage you to read the applicable privacy policies for your social media accounts. We have no responsibility for and are not liable for the data collection and use practices of those social media sites.
Information Collected Through Automated Technologies. We and our service providers also collect Personal Information and other data through automated data collection technologies, such as cookies or pixel tags. This information tells us about how people use our Sites so that we can analyze their effectiveness and provide you with a better web or app experience. We collect and use this information through a variety of technologies, as discussed below.
(a) Server Information
Like most websites, the Sites gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (“IP”) addresses, browser type, operating system, internet service provider (“ISP”), referring/exit pages, date/time stamp of access, and clickstream data, and information about the content you view on the Sites. When you visit the Sites, the servers automatically log your IP address, the time and duration of your visit, and the time and duration spent on the pages of the Sites which you view. If you arrive at the Sites by clicking a paid advertisement or a link in a communication, then the server will capture information that tracks your visit from that link. If you arrive at the Sites by clicking on a non-paid source, such as a search engine result or link on another website, the server captures information that tracks your visit from that source, to the extent available. The server also captures information from direct traffic.
(b) Site Visit Tracking Technologies
A cookie is a unique alphanumeric identifier that websites use to help identify the number of unique visitors to a website, whether or not those visitors are repeat visitors, and the source of the visits. If you prefer not to enable cookies or to disable them, you may do so through your web browser’s security settings. Please note that certain features of our Sites may not be available once cookies have been disabled.
We may also use pixel tags (also called web beacons or clear GIFs), which are tiny invisible graphic images, in the Sites. Pixel tags may be used by us to count users who have visited its webpages and for related website statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain website content and verifying system and server integrity).
Some of our email or text communications to you may contain a “click-through URL,” which links to content on our Sites. When you click one of these URLs, it passes information through our web server before you arrive at the destination web page. We track this click-through data to help determine interest in particular products and measure the effectiveness of our communications. If you prefer not to be tracked, simply avoid clicking text or graphic links in emails or texts you receive from us.
(c) Different Devices
If you use different devices (i.e., your smart phone, laptop, and/or home computer) to access the Services, we may collect device-specific information, including your hardware model, operating system version, browser type, unique device identifiers, phone number, and mobile network information. We may associate your device identifiers or phone number with your profile information.
(d) Third Party Analytics
(e) “Do Not Track” Signals
“Do Not Track” is a privacy setting that you may set in your web browsers. If turned on, this setting requests that websites not track information about users. At this time, we do not respond to “Do Not Track” browser settings or signals.
