Research Privacy Policy

Thank you for taking part in our research. We are not trying to sell or promote anything. This is a market research survey using scientific methods, and we promise not to mislead you about the nature of the research or how the findings will be used.

The answers you give us will be treated as confidential unless you give us permission to use your name. In the few instances where we ask you for permission to pass data on in a form that could allow you to be personally identified, we will ensure that the information is used for research purposes only. We will not send you unsolicited mail or pass on your email address to others for this purpose. If we want to send you future emails, we will ask your explicit permission.

As with all forms of market and opinion research, your cooperation is voluntary. No personal information is sought from or about you without your prior knowledge and agreement. At any stage of the interview, or afterwards, you may ask that part or all of the record of your interview be destroyed or deleted. Wherever reasonable and practical, we will carry out this request.

We try our best not to interview children without first getting the permission of their parents, though we cannot always guarantee this to be the case.

We use browser cookies and similar tools sparingly and only for quality control, validation and to prevent bothersome repeat surveying. You can configure your browser to notify you when cookies are being placed on your computer. You can also delete cookies by adjusting your browser settings. We automatically capture information about your browser type in order to deliver an interview best suited to your software. We do no other invisible processing of data from your computer.

Our website and online survey tools have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. Only certain employees have access to the information you provide us, and only for data analysis and quality control purposes.

Who are you? What is SimpsonScarborough?

We work with institutions of higher education to complete market research, which often means we need to find out what prospective students, students, alumni, faculty, staff, or community members think about an institution. We love higher education, and we love hearing what you think about the colleges and universities that make up this industry.
