Community Marketing & Insights Research Privacy Statement
Community Marketing, Inc. (CMI) respects your privacy.
CMI is an LGBT-owned and operated research firm based in San Francisco, CA. We are not a direct marketing firm, nor a telemarketing firm. We will never try to sell you anything and we will never sell your personal data to anyone. We will never contact you for any reason other than research.
We promise to protect your privacy and treat the information you give us as confidential. The information you provide will be used only for research purposes only.
We never sell or rent our subscriber email addresses to outside parties. We will not release your personal contact information to any third party without your consent.
We respect the privilege of sending you survey invitations, and will not send frequent communications.
You can remove your email address from our list at any time with one click on the link included on every email, or send an email request directly to firstname.lastname@example.org
Some of our surveys have contest-based incentives. In this case, we maintain a list of published winners by first name and state, and that list can be accessed on the CMI website.
At times, CMI works with third-party research firms to recruit LGBT participants for their projects. In this case these invitations will be clearly marked. Typically, the programing works so your contact information is never released to the third party and stays only at CMI, unless indicated in the invitation email.
We never knowingly invite children under the age of 16 to participate in research studies without taking measures to ensure appropriate parental consent, unless youth anonymity is required and the survey is under IRB review standards.
Community Marketing & Insights utilizes third party data collection with Vovici Corporation. Vovici Corporation is a Licensee of the TRUSTe Privacy program. TRUSTe is an independent organization whose mission is to build users’ trust and confidence in the internet by promoting the use of fair information practices. Vovici has elected to disclose its information practices and have its privacy practices reviewed for compliance by TRUSTe as a testament of our commitment to your privacy. Vovici is also compliant with the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework.
We will investigate all complaints and attempt to resolve those that we find are justified. If necessary, we will amend our policies and procedures to ensure that other individuals do not experience the same problem.
