Use of Information
The data collected during registration enables us to validate your eligibility, to determine which surveys/research activities are applicable to you, and to contact you regarding participation in surveys/research activities or in voluntary sweepstakes that Opinion Insiders may sponsor. We also use individual information to generate demographic data relating to the responses we receive to particular surveys.

Our survey results only report aggregate information about demographic groups. Online surveys may reside on servers located at our office, a client site or third party site(s) authorized by Opinion Insiders. Survey responses are identified based upon a survey respondent identification number assigned to each respondent. No personally identifiable information is associated with such survey responses or provided to clients or third parties without the respondents/panelists prior to “opt-in” and/or consent. The individual personal information you provide through the registration process is completely confidential, we never sell it nor do we share it with third parties without your consent (This does not include third party service providers who deliver services essential to the operation and use of the Website and who have agreed to protect the confidentiality of such information that they may have access to as part of their provision of services). Your personal information is also used to credit your incentive account for successfully completed and authenticated surveys and to reward you when you request payment of your incentive balance that is shown to you via your dashboard at Opinion Insiders. Your personal information (including your social security number) may be required for compliance with tax laws and may be disclosed to the appropriate taxing authorities, as required by law.
