Filtering of certain personally identifiable or sensitive information – Compete has established certain procedural and technical privacy rules designed to try to avoid the collection of certain types of personally identifiable and sensitive information that can be identified by those processes, such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, email addresses and email content from most web-based email accounts. Despite our efforts, certain personally identifiable or sensitive information might get through the privacy rules and procedures. However, we do not knowingly use any inadvertently retained personally identifiable or sensitive information in our services.
We may combine data collected by the service, data collected outside the service but part of the program, data collected by our related programs, and data obtained from other sources. We use this information to conduct research and analysis, and may share the information with our customers, partners, and affiliates. However, we prohibit our customers, partners, and affiliates from using your information to target advertising to you individually, although they may use the analysis to improve the way they generally target advertising to consumer market segments to which you may belong. We may use the information to determine whether to invite you to participate in a research survey.
