In our qualitative research, individual responses may be used for quotation purposes, in a manner that will not identify you unless you have agreed to be identified. We only use your Personal Data and Sensitive Personal Data for the conduct of research and for no other purpose. We do not use the contact information we receive about you for any direct marketing activities, nor do we share your contact information with third-party vendors for the purposes of marketing activities.
We will not make your Personal Data or Sensitive Personal Data available to any third party without your consent, unless it is for research purposes or required by law, as specified below.
