Privacy Policy

These details apply to your participation in this survey. By participating in this survey, you agree to the terms of our privacy policy and consent to the collection and use of your personal information according to the conditions set forth in this policy.

Data Collected
on Our Site

Your personal information is treated with the highest standards of confidentiality by Advanis. Survey answers will be grouped with other participant responses and your personal information will only be used for the purposes stated in the survey. We will not use this information for any purposes other than those consistent with market research requirements and guidelines.

We will only share your personal information and survey responses with the sponsor of this research if you specifically agree or request to be contacted by the sponsor or, in some cases, do not choose the opt-out selection which can be part of the survey. In these instances, the information you agree to forward will be provided to the sponsor.

Third Party

The research sponsor and Advanis will not share or sell your survey responses or personal information with any other company or individuals. Reasonable steps have been taken to prevent the accidental disclosure of personal information, which is maintained on a secure, fire-walled internal network.


Personal information provided to Advanis in completing this survey is done on a secure server that encrypts all transmission of personal information. Advanis uses 128 bit encryption to ensure that your personal information is reasonably protected against interception.


We use cookies and other similar devices sparingly and only for quality control, validation, and to prevent bothersome repeat surveying. You can configure your Browser to notify you when cookies are being placed on your computer. You can also delete cookies by adjusting your browser settings.

Internal Use

Other information collected is used to monitor traffic flow on our website in order to manage the site more effectively and to ensure that the content is useful. This information is not associated with your personal information once you have completed the survey.

this Policy

The foregoing policy is in effect as of November 1, 2003. We reserve the right to alter this policy statement at any time by posting the revised policy on this website.
