At Harmon Research We Respect the Privacy of Our respondents.
WHAT KIND OF INFORMATION DOES HARMON RESEARCH COLLECT?
HRG collects a wide range of information about survey respondents depending on the information needs of our clients requesting the surveys. For example, survey respondents 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 respondent should only provide responses to questions they are comfortable answering and survey respondents may decline to answer any survey question.
WHAT DOES HARMON RESEARCH DO WITH RESPONDENT INFORMATION?
HRG reports information gathered through the survey (demographic data, preferences, etc.) to HRG's clients. Any information you voluntarily disclose in the survey will be provided to the commissioner of the survey. HRG does not disclose a survey respondent's personally identifiable information to any clients or third parties other than the commissioner of the survey.
In addition, we may disclose personal information that we collect or you provide:
To contractors, service providers and other third parties we use to support our business ( and who are bound by contractual obligations to keep personal information confidential and use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to them). To a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution or other sale or transfer of some or all of HRG's assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by HRG about our users is among the assets transferred. For any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information. With your consent. To comply with any court order, law or legal process, including to respond to any government or regulatory request.
WHAT ADDITIONAL INFORMATION DOES HARMON RESEARCH COLLECT FROM SURVEY RESPONDENTS?
HRG's servers automatically recognize a survey respondent's domain name and IP addresses (the number assigned to computers on the Internet). No personal information about a survey respondent is revealed in this process. HRG may also gather anonymous traffic data that does not not personally identify a survey respondent, but that may be helpful for marketing purposes or for improving the services HRG offers. From time to time, HRG may use the standard cookies feature of feature of major browser applications that allows HRG to store a small piece of data on your computer about your interaction with our website.
