With all the security issues plaguing the Internet and the need for confidentiality when it comes to private personal information, survey companies are being very careful about who can access the information they have collected from you. Most survey companies only allow access of your information to the employees and agents who may need it to process your account. Anyone else is denied access. These employees and agents are held accountable to not use your personal information for anything other than their specific job function. Marketing partners or clients may also given your information for the purpose of adding your name to their mailing list and solicitations. These companies have their own privacy policies, which should reflect that the same type of care is taken of your private information.
