Voluntary Subscriber Surveys
We may periodically conduct both business and individual Subscriber surveys. We encourage our Subscribers to participate in these surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us to improve the types of products and services we offer and how we provide them to you.
We may take the information we receive from individuals responding to our Subscriber Surveys and combine (or aggregate) it with the responses of other Subscribers we may have, to create broader, generic response to the survey questions (such as gender, age, residence, hobbies, education, employment, industry sector, or other demographic information).

In those cases we share information about our Visitors and Subscribers collected through the registration process as well as through online surveys and promotions with these advertisers.
Additionally, in some instances, we use this information to deliver tailored advertisements or joint ventures.

Based upon the information we have collected, we may then display or send the advertisement to the intended audience.
Our company does share personal information about its Visitors or Subscribers with these advertisers or joint venture companies.
