Market Profiles privacy

We realize ...

...how important privacy is to all of us these days. In short, we don't share your email or any other private information with anyone.

Privacy Details

Market Profiles has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for MarketProfiles.net

Registration Forms

Our site's registration form requires panel members to give us their email address, first name, and country of residence. Contact information from the registration form is used to alert respondents when a questionnaire is ready to fill out. Opt-out instructions and an automatic link are included in every email sent to Market Profile lists. Panel members may opt-out of receiving future mailings by clicking on the appropriate link and following the instructions.

Sensitive identifiers (such as social security numbers) are not collected from our visitors. We require that survey respondents provide their email address as a means of identification and to assure that each respondent completes only one questionnaire per project.

Surveys

Our online surveys ask visitors for demographic information (like zip code, age, or income level). This information is reported in the aggregate along with the information from other respondents so that the information cannot be associated with any one person. For example, we may report that "50% of Internet users have purchased a music video over the Internet." Demographic information is never reported for any individual.

Contact information from the surveys is used to get in touch with the visitor if they are selected in a random drawing for one of the prizes offered for that particular survey. Opt-out instructions and an automatic link are included in every email sent to Market Profile lists. All members of the list may opt-out of receiving future mailings by clicking on the appropriate link and following the instructions.

External Links

This site contains links to other sites. Market Profiles is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites.

Security

This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. Users who join our list are in control of their own information. Questions included in the sign-up questionnaire are optional and users may join the list even if they choose not to provide all of the information. Sensitive questions included in our surveys are also optional and users may participate fully in our programs even if they do not provide all of the information requested. Blank questionnaires and questionnaires that provide no useful information are not accepted for purposes of payment or participation in drawings sponsored by Market Profiles.

  3. When verifiable parental consent is not obtained, we will only use the email address to Respond more than once directly to a specific request from a child (for example when a child requests to be a participant in our survey program) and not used to re-contact the child for other purposes.
  4. We will NOT entice the child to divulge more information than is needed to participate in any activity, game, or service.
  5. We will provide the parent a description of the specific types of a personally identifiable information collected from their child upon request.
