On behalf of PanelOptimus, we would like to thank you for agreeing to be a part of our esteemed panel. We would like to share with you more about our policies on privacy, which we review on a regular basis and update on this page as necessary.

Privacy And Cookie Policy

PanelOptimus is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the PanelOptimus Web site and governs data collection and usage. By using the PanelOptimus website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement..

PanelOptimus collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. PanelOptimus also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.

There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by PanelOptimus. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by PanelOptimus for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the PanelOptimus site.

Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through PanelOptimus public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: PanelOptimus does not read any of your private online communications.

PanelOptimus encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from PanelOptimus so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. PanelOptimus is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the PanelOptimus and PanelOptimus family of Web sites.

Using your Personal Information

PanelOptimus collects and uses your personal information to operate the PanelOptimus site and deliver the services you have requested. PanelOptimus also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from PanelOptimus and its affiliates. PanelOptimus may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

PanelOptimus does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. PanelOptimus may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases too, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, PanelOptimus may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to PanelOptimus, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

PanelOptimus does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

PanelOptimus keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within PanelOptimus, in order to determine what PanelOptimus services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within PanelOptimus to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

PanelOptimus sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on PanelOptimus or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of PanelOptimus; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of PanelOptimus, or the public.

With our panels, we work together with our partner firm CINT who provides the panel environment where you enter and maintain your profile information. CINT manages these surveys on our behalf and on the behalf of many other research firms. As a panelist, you are likely to receive survey invitiations through CINT to complete surveys hosted by a variety of solely legitimate research suppliers. However, please note that no other entity besides PanelOptimus (the owner of the PanelOptimus Panel) and CINT (the administrator) will have any access to your personally identifiable data, including your e-mail address. Both PanelOptimus and CINT will communicate with you and collect data only as is reasonable concerning the conduct of research or the administration of panel activities. For the beginning, we will be required to answer a number of profile questions prior to joining the panel so that we can provide you with invitations to surveys that are likely going to be suitable for you. Also, we will need to know your address information to be able to process money transfers to you when you reach your preferred points level threshold.

Please note that our clients conduct marketing research studies using scientific methods and we promise that, in obtaining your cooperation, we will not mislead you about the general nature of the research or the use that will be made of the findings nor regarding the average time we expect that it will take to complete a survey.

Use of Cookies

The PanelOptimus site use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize PanelOptimus pages, or register with PanelOptimus site or services, a cookie helps PanelOptimus to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same PanelOptimus site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the PanelOptimus features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the PanelOptimus services or Web sites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

PanelOptimus secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. PanelOptimus secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.


Though we make every effort to preserve your privacy, we may need to disclose your personal information when we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a judicial proceeding or a court order or if we believe it is necessary in order to investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of the PanelOptimus site terms, or as otherwise required by law. PanelOptimus may also disclose your personal information to third parties where it has your express permission to do so, or where it can reasonably be inferred from the circumstances that you consent to the disclosure to the third parties.

Changes to this Statement

PanelOptimus will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. PanelOptimus encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how PanelOptimus is protecting your information.
