Information. Trone Research & Consulting is the sole owner of the information collected on opinions@trone. We collect personally identifiable information from our Panelists in the initial questionnaire Panelists complete. We will not sell, distribute or make available in any form personally identifiable information (e.g., name, address, phone or email) of any Panelist without their express permission. We will not solicit you or ask you to purchase anything from us. As noted in our initial questionnaire, we are marketing specialists and we frequently need opinions on new ideas. When we need your opinion, we will contact you and provide you with the opportunity to participate in a survey panel. We collect the information provided to us by Panelists who choose to complete a survey that they have been invited to complete. We will not sell, share or rent this information to others, but we will provide to others summaries of the information we obtain from surveys. We may also invite Panelists to participate in a more in-depth survey or an interview by telephone or in person. If we do so, it will be an invitation that a Panelist can either accept or reject.
IP Addresses. Your access provider assigns an IP address to your computer when you use the Internet. We log each IP address that accesses the site, along with referring and destination URLs. We may use this data, as well as other data in our databases, to troubleshoot technical problems, address complaints and prepare aggregated reports of activity on our site.
Registration Data. When you register as a Panelist, you provide us with some personal data, including your email address. We use Panelist registration data in order to send invitations to complete surveys to persons in a particular demographic. We use survey responses to provide our clients with feedback about their businesses.
Other Data Collection. We may get data from or about you in other ways not specifically described in this statement. For example, you might contact us with a question or complaint. We maintain this data like other business records.
Contractors and Service Providers. We may use third-party contractors who can access our databases for the purpose of conducting repairs or upgrades to our computer system. These contractors sign a standard confidentiality agreement. We may use third-party service providers and give access to your personal data as part of the services they provide to us. We require these providers to use and disclose your personal data only as necessary to perform their services.
Communicating with Other Panelists. Trone Research & Consulting will not display or provide access to any personal data (including email addresses) relating to any Panelist. Therefore, you will not be able to communicate with any other Panelist through the agency of opinions@trone.
Security. We take every reasonable precaution to protect our Panelists' information. When Panelists submit information via opinions@trone, that information is protected both online and off-line. We use industry-standard security protocols, such as (if and where appropriate) firewalls, encryption and restrictions on which employees can access Panelist data.

We encourage our Panelists to be aware when they leave opinions@trone, and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.
