Who is Millward Brown Digital and what does Millward Brown Digital do?
Millward Brown Digital is a leading research company that analyzes marketing effectiveness through surveys and studies that are voluntarily completed by consumers.
Consumers participate in our studies through two primary channels:
2. panel-based participation (preferred panel partners such as Lightspeed Research (www.lightspeedresearch.com), gather inputs from their opted in panelists on our behalf). Information practices related to this type of consumer engagement are presented in the privacy policies of our partners
Technology enabled collection
Our partners such as Safecount.net may use preferred or certified service providers to enable their operations in whole or in part. Their privacy policies inform about such arrangements.
To exercise the option of opting out of data collection by our partners, you can click here http://www.safecount.net/yourdata.php and scroll down to use the "Consumer Opt-Out" button which will set a special cookie that excludes you from the above mentioned activity. You can opt-in and opt-out at http://www.safecount.net/viewyourcookiesinformation_optinout.php.
Though we do not use tracking technologies directly in connection with our studies, we do keep automated server log files that record IP address, browser type, time and date, and file accessed for all visitors to this website (www.dynamiclogic.com). These logs are for maintenance purposes only, and we are not able nor do we make any effort to match them to any personal identifiable information.
Consumer provided information
Once a consumer agrees to participate in the survey, he or she may be asked to provide their zip code, gender, birth year, income and in some cases, email address. Email address is only requested in 3 specific cases: 1) sweepstakes or other incentive is offered for users to participate in a particular research study, in which case the email address is used to notify the user if he/she has been selected to receive a prize, 2) to re-contact the user if he/she has opted-in to take future surveys, and 3) from time to time we conduct internal collaboration exercises and if an inconsistency with respect to your survey answers is noted in that process, we may contact you to get clarity . The other (i.e., other than email address) data values are only used to weight and analyze the survey results. If you do not wish to provide this information, then you will not be able to participate in our survey.
If we were to consider using or sharing either technology enabled collection or consumer provided information in any other manner than stated here, we would obtain the consent of affected consumers or survey respondents before doing so.
Survey results sent to our clients do not include email addresses or other personally-identifying information. We never divulge specific user information. In the case where a sweepstakes is offered as an incentive to participate in a study, selected winners must provide their name and address so that the winning prize may be delivered to them.
Do you rent, sell or release my name, address or email information?
No. We do not rent, sell, or release list information without your consent. You are providing it to our organization only, and we do not assume that we have your permission to provide it to any other organization or company without your consent.
What do you do with my survey answers?
All data collected is grouped together and analyzed as a whole - in the aggregate. Your identity will never be attached to a specific piece of information or response. In the analysis we provide to clients we do not say: Bob Smith from Tuscon, AZ said XYZ. On the occasion that we'd like to use a direct quote from your survey you will be contacted directly. And if you do not grant us permission, the quote will not be used.
All data is stored in the US.
Why do I need to provide my name, address and email?
We use your email address for a few purposes. The first is to inform you if you have been chosen as a sweepstakes winner for having taken a survey. The second is to contact you if you have opted in to take future surveys. Your name and mailing address would be requested only in the case where you are the sweepstakes winner and a check or prize has to be delivered to you. Age, gender and other demographic information is used to determine a user's eligibility to qualify for a survey.
You will be notified by email if there is ever a change in the way we use your personal information.
Lastly, we may contact you if we have any questions or concerns about the accuracy of your information. We periodically conduct internal corroboration amongst all our data tables and also validate data fields to reveal any possible inconsistencies in the database. The outcome of this exercise may prompt us to contact you.
And keep in mind, if you ever want any personal information (name, address, email address or other contact information) to be removed from our database, just contact us via email at email@example.com, and we will accommodate your request.
We will, however, retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
Why do I need to provide income, education and occupation information?
This information is used to properly analyze data. Many different types of people participate in these surveys and this type of data helps us and our clients understand who participated and see if there are any interesting similarities, differences or trends among participants in different groups.
How do you pay me if I am a Sweepstakes winner?
Based on the name and address you submit, we will issue you a check when applicable. This process takes 4 - 6 weeks depending on the nature of the survey.
We may also automatically collect non-personal information about your use of this site. Examples of such non-personal information is the type of internet browser that’s visiting the site, the pages of our site that’s visited or the Web site which directed you to our site. You cannot be identified from this information and it is used only to assist us in providing an effective experience on this Web site.
