We’ve developed this Privacy Policy to describe (1) how we collect, use, transfer, and store information of individuals who provide responses to sample, sample panel, or survey questions (“you” or “Respondents”); (2) your choices regarding your personal information; and (3) how we ensure the privacy of customers who use Pegasus (“you,” or “Clients or Suppliers”).

This Privacy Policy only applies to the Pegasus website (the “Site”), and to the data that we collect through Pegasus. It does not apply to any data that we collect via sites where this Privacy Policy is not posted.

Continued use of Pegasus and the Site constitutes your freely given, specific, and informed consent and agreement to the collection and use of your personal information.

1. Collection of Personal Information

a. Usage and Browsing Information. You can visit most of our Site without registering or actively submitting personal data to us. If you do not register, general technical user data, such as your device’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, operating system and browser type, and the date and time of your visit, may be automatically collected through the use of “cookies” (small files that are stored on your computer by a website to give you a unique identification) or other technologies. Cookies also keep track of services you have used, record registration information regarding your login name and password, ensure you do not repeatedly see survey questions, record your preferences and keep you logged into the Innovate Site.

b. Information You Actively Submit. If you register on our Site on behalf of a corporate customer (e.g., a client or supplier of market research sample), or if you sign up for our newsletter, you will provide contact information such as your name, email address, mailing address and company affiliation. If you use our Site to provide responses to sample, sample panel, or survey questions, you will provide demographic information about yourself and answer questions at your discretion. In each case, you know what information you provide and we collect, because you will actively submit the information.

c. Combination. We may combine information that your device transmits, information that you actively submit, and information that we obtain from third party sources, including suppliers of market research sample and data marketing platforms that may direct you to our Site, as well as web publishers, advertisers, and online service providers that may have obtained information from you or your devices via cookies, pixels, and other tracking technologies.

d. Business Information. We may collect employee contact names, addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of our business partners, including buyers, suppliers, and vendors, for the administration our business relationships. If you feel that your personal data or personally identifiable information is being collected inappropriately, please notify us at support@pegasusMR.com.

e. Information Tracking Technologies.We may use or allow third parties to use web beacons on our Site to monitor the effectiveness of survey qualification. Web beacons are small, graphic images on web pages, web-based documents, or in email messages that allow us or third parties to monitor who is visiting our Site or if an email has been read. Web beacons collect the IP address of the device where the web beacon is sent, the URL of the page where the web beacon originates, and the time it was viewed. Web beacons may be linked to your personal information. We may also use third-party devices, services, links, or electronic mail to deliver surveys to you, which may use cookies, web beacons, or other technology to collect information about your visits to our Site (or other sites) in order to present surveys that may be of interest to you.

We may use a pixel or cookie to examine what is happening on third-party websites, including programs and sites with marketing and advertising partners, to improve the understanding of site traffic and market research effectiveness. Respondents or participants in survey or survey panels that are hosted on, accessed by, or routed through the Site should consult the privacy and other policies of third parties through whom they are providing information.

You can opt out of receiving interest-based ads and tracking from third parties who are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) or who follow the Digital Advertising Alliance’s (“DAA”) Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising by visiting the opt-out pages on the NAI website and DAA website.

f. Do Not Track. Some browsers have a “do not track” feature that lets you tell websites you do not want to have your online activities tracked. Because these features are not yet uniform, we do not presently respond to “do not track” signals.

We use your information to operate, evaluate, and improve our business, including for such purposes as developing new products and services, managing our communications, and analyzing our products. If you provide us with your name and contact information, we will use this information to answer requests from you, communicate with you regarding any services we are providing to you, and inform you about new products and services (unless and until you opt-out of marketing information). If you come to our Site to qualify for or take surveys, we use the demographic information you provide to make your survey answers more meaningful to us and our clients. We may also use information derived from cookies, pixels, and other technologies to determine your interests in particular surveys, advertisements, and other communications.

We rely on the accuracy of the information provided directly to us but accept responsibility for the management and confidentiality of the personal information collected.
