The information we gather
We gather personal information when an individual registers to become a member of our panels. Your participation in any of our panels and surveys is voluntary. After registration we ask panel members to provide us with more personal information so that we may invite them to appropriate surveys. To become a LISTEN TO YOUR SENSES member, we ask that you fill out a registration survey that gathers some personal and general consumer information. We ask for your email address so that we can send you email invitations to participate in our upcoming surveys and subject to the preferences you expressed when registering, to send you newsletters to make you aware of new features or contests running on the site. The other information we gather, such as your name, address, gender, and birthday is for matching you with the appropriate marketing research projects. Your birthday is used to automatically update your age for us to target age-related marketing groups. We ask you for this information as a means to see if you might qualify for particular projects. All email contact from LISTEN TO YOUR SENSES will be sent to your primary email address that you gave to us upon registration. If you become a LISTEN TO YOUR SENSES member, your information (name, address, city, state, and zip or postcode) is also used for the purposes of incentive fulfillment. When incentive points are deposited in your account and you wish to redeem them or you are determined as the winner of a physical gift card in a sweepstakes, this information is required so that we may send your reward to the appropriate recipient address. From time to time, a third party may be used for issuing cheques or processing the delivery of rewards.
You should be aware that any personal information you choose to make public on the site, in the Community area (as an opinion or topic in a message board or live chat or any other public area or forum) can be read, collected, or used by other users and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personal information you choose to submit or make public in this way. In addition, we are not responsible for the content you publicly post on the site that can be found via web-based search engines. To request removal of your personal information from our blog or community forum, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personal information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.
We display personal testimonials of satisfied customers on our site in addition to other endorsements. With your consent we may post your testimonial along with your name. If you wish to update or delete your testimonial, you can contact us at email@example.com.
