Market Force will take reasonable steps to protect member privacy consistent with the guidelines set forth in this policy and English law and will respect and observe the provisions set forth in Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (the 'Act') and any other relevant legislation.

Market Force defines personally identifiable information as information that includes any combination of the following: a person's full name, address, telephone number, date of birth and/or email address.
Market Force can gather information on our users in two different ways:
1. You supply it in response to a request from us. Market Force collects personally identifiable information from users when voluntarily submitted by a user, such as on registration or when participating in a contest or a request for further information or to attain trade or media accreditation. We request that a user be 18 years of age or older before submitting personally identifiable information and we ask minors to get permission from their parents or legal guardian before submitting personally identifiable information.
Market Force will not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you provide it to us. If you do not want your Personal Information collected, do not provide it to us.
Surveys and Incentive Contests
As incentive for visitors to the Sites to complete a survey ("Survey"), Market Force conducts contests for incentive prizes ("Incentive Contests"). Please note that, if you elect not to provide your Personal Information to us, you will be unable to participate in any Incentive Contest that is offered on the Sites.
Our Surveys and Incentive Contests ask visitors for Personal Information and may ask visitors for Financial information (such as their income level), and demographic information (such as their postcode or age). Unless expressly agreed to as below, Personal Information will only be used for the purpose of administering the Incentive Contest and notifying a visitor if they have been selected as an eligible prize winner. Survey results are only shared with third parties on an aggregated basis and are not linked to any Personal Information, unless the User opts-in to have their Personal Information shared with client using one of the following exceptions:
- Opt-in Request for Contact
Some Surveys offer visitors the option of being contacted by Market Force or one of our clients to discuss their experience. Visitors must opt-in if they wish to be contacted and if they do their Personal Information will be shared only with the client of Market Force whose Survey was completed
- Opt-in for Additional Surveys or to receive Information or Product Offerings
Some Surveys offer visitors the option of participating in additional Surveys or receiving information from Market Force or from one of our clients. Visitors must opt-in if they wish to participate or receive such information and if they do their Personal Information may be used by Market Force and shared with one of our clients for that purpose.
Within each of the above exceptions shared Personal Information will only be used for the purposes opted in and for no other purpose.
