1. Information We Gather And Track:
The Health Advisory Panel gathers demographic information, such as age, occupation, and other household characteristics, about our panel members when they fill out the Registration Questionnaire and participate in surveys. The Registration Questionnaire and subsequent surveys require panel members to provide us with contact information (such as name, email address, business mailing address, etc) so that we may communicate with you. Among panel members, we track this information so we can send surveys that correspond to members' qualifications and interests. We also summarize information about the panel to develop statistics, ensuring that the panel is representative of consumers from across the country. Email addresses and other contact information are used only when Health Advisory Panel needs to communicate with the panel members. Neither Client nor MarketTools (including their third party service providers) will sell this information or share it with any other party, unless we are required to do so by law. The communications that panel members will receive from the Health Advisory Panel will concern:
- Opportunities to participate in our surveys

- Communications about compensation for completing our surveys Panel members may opt-out of receiving communications from us at any time. Please see the Opt-Out Policy section below.
