Our Privacy Policy

Versta Research is committed to protecting the privacy of all information we collect from our clients and from research participants. This policy applies to all client and personal information that we collect or use in the course of conducting our business. Anyone who has access to such information or data must follow this policy.

Client Information

We treat all information we receive from clients as confidential and do not use the information for any purpose other than to fulfill our obligations to them. We keep client information secure at all times, and prevent the misuse and unauthorized disclosure of it by our employees or any third parties.

Research Participant Information

All responses to our research are confidential. We collect data in our studies for research purposes only, and our use of that information will be limited to that purpose. Research participant answers will not be used by any entity as an aid for sales.

Research participation is voluntary and sample members always have the opportunity to decline involvement or to opt out of the research after agreeing to participate. We do not collect personal information without research participant consent.

We do not rent, sell or give personal information to any third party for the purpose of directly marketing any products or services. In some cases we may need to share personal information with third parties that provide research services in support of the research project. Any third party that receives personal information is obligated to follow all of the same privacy protection regulations as followed by Versta Research.

At their request, we give research participants access to the personal information we have collected about them. We correct any information that is inaccurate or incomplete, change their consent status, or have their personal information deleted.

Opt Out Policy

Information Security

We maintain all necessary physical, electronic and procedural security measures to help safeguard client data and personal information. Third parties that provide us with support or services may also receive client data or personal information, and we require them to maintain security measures similar to ours with respect to such information.

Data Integrity

Versta Research will take reasonable steps to ensure the personal data is accurate, complete, current and relevant, being used only to fulfill our obligations to our clients.
