Storage of Information

The Demographic and Psychographic information which you provide will be stored separately from each other. This means that the Psychographic information will not be identifiable with an individual.

Personal Information shall be used for market research and the information will not be distributed to outside entities as raw data. The results of market studies will be available to outside entities but not the raw data itself. This way no individual will be identified to outside entities, only the aggregate data on specific markets.

Use of Personal Information

The information that you provided to this website will be used to measure and forecast market conditions by studying the shifts in markets or to markets by a population identified by Psychographic style. This will be done by combining the aggregate scores of the individuals that makeup a market, based on demographic and psychographic information.

The study of specific market segments will be conducted by identifying the individuals within a specified market-based Psychographic style. This will be done by combining the aggregate scores of the individuals that make up a market, based on demographic and psychographic information.

The purpose of the aggregate data is to provide insight into market conditions. By understanding the Psychographic makeup of a market, assumptions can be made for marketing and sales purposes. Aggregate data is the combined information from multiple individual scores. These combined scores form a whole data to describe the large group of individuals.

In summary, MineTech, Inc. treats personal information and Psychographic information as confidential. MineTech, Inc. will never sell or disclose raw data to outside entities. We will only disseminate aggregate data, or conclusions drawn from aggregate data.
