6. Data on Marketing Research Respondents
Through our CiviSelect Website (civiselect.com), social media accounts, and by telephone and email, we collect information for individuals who desire to be included in our CiviSelect respondent database or in an active research study. Individuals who wish to participate must provide their first and last name, phone number, email address, country, and whether or not they have high speed internet in order to be considered for a marketing research study.
Additional information, such as address, ethnicity, birthdate, gender, health information, income, and other demographics may be required for a specific study based on client requirements to participate. These requirements also apply to any individual who replies to any of our respondent recruiting solicitations or by way of a third-party respondent recruiter or panel (“Respondent Information” is incorporated under the definition of “Personal Information”).
Respondent Information shared with us by our clients as a part of a specific study may include similar information as the above. As part of our facilitation role we will contact you based on the information provided to us and in order to include you in the study.
In order to participate in a research study, you may need to provide additional information about yourself that is required by the research study in order to confirm that you are eligible to participate under the project specifications required. This information is collected to determine if you qualify for the study. Anonymized data is in most cases entered into a spreadsheet for disposition reporting. By providing this data you realize it is for the purpose of qualifying you for a research study.
When you are a respondent in a marketing research study, we or our clients may ask your opinions and views on products and services external to our company or theirs. You understand that you are providing this information freely of your own will in order to participate in the research study you have been qualified to participate in.
Researchers who engage with us in our facilitation of a research study may have their own privacy policies which apply to studies involving you. Those privacy policies may detail how they handle your personally identifiable information. We encourage you to become familiar with any such policies.
