General
1.Technology on the Internet is rapidly changing, and City Research Consumer Panel needs to maintain flexibility in our business model. City Research Consumer Panel reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy, and if we do, we will post these changes on www. CityResearchConsumerPanel.com 14 days before they go into effect. You agree to check this site for changes to this Privacy Policy every 14 days.

2. City Research Consumer Panel will not sell, rent, swap, or otherwise disclose to any third party any personally identifiable information provided during your participant registration. In addition, we do not include on our site any functionality allowing third parties to perform “reverse searches” to identify individuals from e-mail addresses.

3. City Research Consumer Panel asks you to complete the participant registration process when you first visit the site so we can most efficiently communicate with you in the future. This personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to, your name, e-mail address, zip code, and facts about your background, interests, and consumer habits. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of eighteen. See Section9 of this Privacy Policy for more about our handling of personal information from children under 18.

4.We may use your regular mail address, e-mail address or telephone number to communicate with you.

5. City Research Consumer Panel reserves the right to send subscribers maintenance e-mails, such as, but not exclusively including, service confirmation, renewal/expire notice, periodic account summaries, and infrequent service alert messages. The purpose of these maintenance e-mail messages is to inform panelists of updates and specific changes that may impact their ability to use this site.

6. City Research Consumer Panel automatically collects site usage information from you when you visit the www. CityResearchConsumerPanel.com site.

Children Under 18
9.If you are a person under the age of 18, we do not want to receive any personal information about you – including information like your name, address or e-mail address or other information in the panel intake form. City Research Consumer Panel does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 18. In the event that we learn that we have collected any personal information from a child under the age of 18 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information from our database as quickly as reasonably possible.

Security
10.Whenever City Research Consumer Panel handles information that you enter on our site, regardless of where this occurs, we take steps to ensure that your information is treated securely and in accordance with the Subscriber Agreement 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 personal information, City Research Consumer Panel cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we use our reasonable commercially efforts to provide for its security on our systems.

11. City Research Consumer Panel does not control the privacy policies of our business partners, sponsors or other sites to which we provide hyperlinks.

Cookies
12. City Research Consumer Panel uses “cookies” to identify return visitors. A “cookie” is a small file that we save on your computer’s hard drive. It contains no personal information, like your name or e-mail address, but “remembers” that your computer has visited this site before. So if you leave the site and then return, cookies will be able to detect what questions you have already answered so that you do not have to start all over again. To accept cookies, go into your browser preferences and check that cookies are being accepted. You can also turn off the ‘cookie’ function through most standard browsers.
