We take your privacy very seriously. We believe in protecting your information in the same way we want ours protected. Schmidt Market Research, Inc. and its authorized agents (collectively, "Schmidt”, “we” or “us”) encourage you to become familiar with this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy describes what information we collect about you and how we collect it, with whom we share it, and how we protect it. By accessing and using the Site, you agree that you have read and understand this Privacy Policy and that you accept and consent to the privacy practices that are described in this Privacy Policy.

1. What information do we collect, and how?

We may collect certain identifying information from or about you in connection with your submissions to the Site, including, but not limited to, your name, address, phone number and email address.

As with many other websites, the web servers used to operate the Site may collect certain data pertaining to you and the equipment and communications method that you use to access the Internet and our Site and store it in log files.

Our Site may include links to other Web sites whose privacy practices may differ from those of Schmidt. If you submit personal information to any of those sites, your information is governed by their privacy policies. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy policy of any Web site you visit.

Our Web site includes widgets, such as Google Maps. These features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Site. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

In addition, our Site may use a third party web analytics service. These features may record mouse clicks, mouse movements, and scrolling activity as you navigate through the website. This Site does not use the feature to collect any personally identifiable information entered in this website or have the ability to view personally identifiable information. Furthermore, we do not track your browsing habits across websites we do not own. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

2. With whom do we share the information we collect?

Other than as described below, we do not share this information with anyone unless it is necessary to fulfill your request. We primarily use your information for the purposes of:

  • 1. Responding to your request;
  • 2. Have us delete any information we have about you; or
  • 3. Express any concern you have about our use of your information.

How do we protect information collected about you?

Schmidt maintains certain commercially reasonable security measures to protect your information, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, the storage and communication of your information can never be completely secure. Hence, we do not guarantee that information that you transmit or otherwise supply to us, or any communications conducted on or through the Site, is or will be totally secure. If you become aware of any breach of Site security or this Privacy Policy, please notify us immediately at (412) 367-1226.

From time to time, we may change our privacy practices and this Privacy Policy because of changes in relevant and applicable legal or regulatory requirements, our business practices, or in our attempts to better serve your needs and those of our other clients. If we make any material change, we will notify you by email (sent to the e-mail address specified in your account) or by means of a notice on this Site prior to the change becoming effective. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices.
