What personally identifiable information does ExecutiveOpinion collect from me?

ExecutiveOpinion collects information in several ways. Some personally identifiable information is gathered when you register. During registration, ExecutiveOpinion asks for personally identifiable information such as your name and address, and other non-personally identifiable information such as the number of employees in your company and other information. The more information you volunteer (and the more accurate it is), the better we are able to customize your experience and send you invitations to studies you are most likely to qualify for. Once you register you are no longer anonymous to ExecutiveOpinion and you will use your email address and password to access the various protected areas of the site. Also, if you contact ExecutiveOpinion we may keep a record of that correspondence. Whenever ExecutiveOpinion collects personally identifiable information we make an effort to include a link to this Privacy Policy on that page.

What security precautions are in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of my information?

Your ExecutiveOpinion Account Information and ExecutiveOpinion Profile are password-protected. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. ExecutiveOpinion will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. Also remember to sign out of your ExecutiveOpinion account and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet cafe. Whenever ExecutiveOpinion handles personally identifiable information as described above, regardless of where this occurs, ExecutiveOpinion takes steps to ensure that your information is treated securely and in accordance with the relevant Terms of Service and this Privacy Policy. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personally identifiable information, ExecutiveOpinion cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.

What else should I know about my privacy?

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information online - for example on message boards, through email, or in chat areas - that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personally identifiable information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you're online.
