Our primary goal in collecting information is to provide you with fully functional website and efficient experience. We collect the following types of information:
We measure visitors to our website using Google’s analytics software. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so we don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited our site. The information we collect from analytics helps us understand what parts of our sites are doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better.
When you visit the Site, Global Survey collects your Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses to track and aggregate non-personal information. For example, Global Survey uses IP addresses to monitor the regions from which you navigate the Site. This data is only used in the aggregate.
In addition, we receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us via our Site. Global Survey data” on our server logs (including your IP address), Global Survey cookie information and the page you requested. Global Survey uses this traffic data to help diagnose problems with its server, analyze trends and administer the Service.
At times, Global Survey collects identifying information that you provide to Global Survey, including any pages or landing pages. When you initially express interest in obtaining additional information about the Service, or when you register for the Service, we may also ask for additional types of personal information, such as title, department name, etc. We may also request demographic information and unique identifiers in order to provide you with a more personalized experience or verify your passwords. You can control and delete cookies from Global Survey and third-parties anytime.
We may receive a confirmation when you open an e-mail from Global Survey if your computer supports this type of program, in order to help us make emails more interesting and helpful. We may also send out emails with information regarding Global Survey partners including promotions and events. If you complete the request form on the Site for additional information about the Service, we may also use your email address to send you information.
These services provide social buttons and similar features which we use on our website – such as the “Like” and “Tweet” buttons. To do so we embed code that they provide and we do not control ourselves. To function their buttons generally know if you’re logged in; for example Facebook use this to say “x of your friends like this”. We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those networks use it. Social networks therefore could know that you’re viewing this website, if you use their services (that isn’t to say they do, but their policies may change). As our website is remarkably inoffensive we imagine this is not a concern for most users.
