Showable Media Audience Panel Privacy Statement

Showable Media maintains a panel of online media listeners/viewers made up of respondents to an anonymous survey who have voluntarily elected to participate in follow-up surveys. Panel surveys are administered using a third party survey engine. This Privacy Statement describes Showable Media's policies and practices as they relate to the collection and use of information gathered from these surveys.

Privacy Commitment

Unless you give us explicit permission, we will not share your personally identifiable information such as name, address or e-mail address with third parties for any purpose, unless required by law to do so.

Collection, Use, Disclosure of Information

Showable Media collects personally identifiable information from respondents to our anonymous surveys who volunteer to become panel members. Examples of personally identifiable data that may be requested are name, address, phone number, email address, etc. The personally identifiable information you provide when joining a Showable Media panel is used solely to contact you for participation in future surveys and to match your responses back to an anonymous profile.

Our site automatically creates logs regarding user sessions on showablemedia.com, such as features that you use, the actions that you take, and the information that you access. We generally use this information in statistical and aggregate formats to assess the effectiveness of our site and to better understand consumer priorities and interests.
