    Committment To Your Privacy

    This site is owned and operated by Stratalys Research & Consulting, LLC. Your privacy is of the utmost importance to us. At Stratalys, we want to make your experience online satisfying and safe. Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the collection and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.

    Information Gathering

    Stratalys gathers information about users through voluntary surveys with and without compensation. Opinions or other responses to polls are aggregated and are not identifiable to any particular user. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party. Stratalys may use a system to "tag" users after they have submitted surveys, so they can submit only once on a particular study. This tag is not correlated with information about individual users.


    Consistent with the Federal Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of thirteen (13) without requesting parental consent.

    Usage Tracking

    Stratalys tracks user traffic patterns throughout our site. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. Stratalys does break down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser).


    We may place a text file called a "cookie" in the browser files of your computer. The cookie itself does not contain Personal Information although it will enable us to relate your use of this site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided. But the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can't read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Stratalys uses cookies primarily to ensure against multiple survey submissions (as described above).

    Sharing of the Information

    Stratalys uses the above-described information to tailor our content to suit your needs and deliver valuable research to our clients. We will not share information about individual users with any third party, except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.


    Stratalys operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our customers.

    Your Consent

    By using this site, you consent to the collection and use of this information by Stratalys. If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.
