The Survey Initiative does not collect any information from you when you access this website, unless you provide us with information and consent by which we can contact you. We do, of course, collect and store information provided by you if you participate in surveys we conduct on behalf of our clients.
We will use the information provided by participants in the surveys we conduct to provide the client with reports and analyses on the results of the survey.

Except in providing a technical support service, The Survey Initiative will not communicate directly with survey participants without the agreement of its client.
The Survey Initiative will not pass survey data to anyone else, except to any successors in title to our business. We may use and disclose, for the provision of benchmarking information and marketing purposes, aggregate data only so that no individual clients or survey participants are identified.
