On occasion, our business partners may also offer you additional products and services that may be of interest to you.

Voluntary Surveys / Online Forms
We may periodically conduct both business and individual surveys. We encourage members to participate in these voluntary surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us improve the types of services we offer and how we provide them to you. Your personal information and responses will remain confidential, even if the survey is conducted by a third-party.
We take the information we receive from individuals responding to our surveys and combine (or aggregate) it with the responses of other members to create broader, generic responses to the survey questions (such as gender, age, residence, hobbies, education, employment, industry sector, or other demographic information). We then use the aggregated information to improve the quality of our services to you, and to develop new services and products. This aggregated, non-personally identifying information may be shared with third-party partners.
If you submit an online form to receive further information about our Services, the information you submit will be used to contact you to provide relevant communications about our products and Services. This communication may be facilitated by a third party.
