How Does Cambridge Market Research Collect Information?
We collect information submitted by participants about a wide variety of subjects using an online survey tool “Decipher” hosted by FocusVision Worldwide Inc. This company is a data processor for CMR and only processes personal information in line with our instructions.
At Cambridge Market Research We Respect The Privacy Of Participants.
What Kind of Information Does Cambridge Market Research Collect?
CMR collects a wide range of information about survey participants depending on the information needs of our clients requesting the surveys. For example, survey participants may be requested to provide certain personally identifiable, financial or demographic information, as well as specific opinions about a variety of goods and services. Responses to all survey questions are completely voluntary. A survey participant should only provide responses to questions they are comfortable answering and survey participants may decline to answer any survey question.
What Does Cambridge Market Research Do With Participant Information?
CMR reports aggregated, non-personally identifiable data gathered through the survey (demographic data, preferences, etc.) to CMR’s clients in order to help them improve their products and services. In very rare circumstances we may ask if you are willing for us to disclose personally identifiable information to our client. If this is the case we will make it clear as to the purpose of this request and will only do so with your express permission.
What Additional Information Does Cambridge Market Research Collect From Survey Participants?
CMR’s servers automatically recognise a survey participant’s domain name and IP addresses (the number assigned to computers on the Internet). No personal information about a survey participant is revealed in this process. CMR may also gather anonymous “traffic data” that does not personally identify a survey participant, but that may be helpful for improving the services CMR offers. From time to time, CMR may use the standard “cookies” feature of major browser applications that allows CMR to store a small piece of data on your computer about your interaction with our survey. CMR does not set any personally identifiable information in cookies.
