Personally Provided Information

PMI does not require you provide to personal information to visit our web site; however, you may choose to provide us with personal information through an email message, form, survey, etc. This information is used only to fulfill the stated purpose of your communication and/or participation. While our server logs such things as IP address, and in some cases e-mail addresses, we do not tie this information to individual survey responses.

How the Information Is Used

Survey responses provided are analyzed in the aggregate form.

The survey sponsor is provided written analysis of the data collected as well as tabulations of responses in most cases. PMI may, from time to time; contact users (again, only those who have voluntarily provided us with their e-mail address) for follow up research purposes. Participation in follow up research is voluntary. We do not provide any individually identifiable information to any party. We do not use contact information for direct marketing purposes, nor do we make e-mail addresses available to any outside parties.
