1. What personally identifiable information is collected from me?
2. What are cookies and how are they used by ClearVoice Research®?
ClearVoice Research® may place Internet cookies on your hard drive. Internet cookies are small files that may be placed on your hard disk for record-keeping purposes. Cookies are used to (a) remind us of who you are in order to deliver you better service; (b) estimate our audience size by determining repeat usage of the Web site to help target advertisements based on user interests and behavior; (c) track your progress in surveys; and (d) measure certain traffic patterns for use as a research tool to understand how our users’ habits are similar or different from one another. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. By not accepting cookies, some Web pages may not display properly or you may not be permitted to access certain information.
ClearVoice Research® also collects IP addresses (the Internet address of a computer) to track a user’s session while the user remains anonymous. We analyze this data for certain trends in statistics, such as which parts of our site users are visiting and how long they spend there. In those limited cases where session information is not anonymous, ClearVoice Research® will provide notice of the practice and an opportunity to “opt-out”.
Research companies that you may take surveys with through ClearVoice Research® may also use their own cookies. The content of such cookies and the use of the information they contain is controlled by the individual research companies, not by ClearVoice Research®.
