Terms and Conditions

ThinkTank, an online community operated and managed by Paradigm Sample, is committed to protecting your privacy. Research serves an important function in helping promote the flow of information in open societies. Through survey research, businesses, political organizations and governments learn from representative samples of people. As a survey participant, your opinions help inform the development and improvement of new products and services, customer service programs, and public and social policies.

We conduct survey research for the benefit of our clients, who include for-profit companies, non-profit organizations and governmental institutions.

When our interviewers reach respondents by telephone or in-person, they identify themselves and state the purpose(s) of their contact. Our mail delivered or emailed survey invitations clearly identify us as ThinkTank and explain the purpose(s) of our contact.

When we contact you, we will generally do so for one of the following purposes:

  • To invite you to join a survey research panel
  • To conduct a survey research interview
  • To validate answers you gave in a survey we conducted
  • To update our records on the accuracy of your personal information

Much more occasionally, we may contact you for one of these other purposes:

  • To notify you if you have won a sweepstakes we sponsored;
  • To ask for your permission to use your personal information for a purpose that was not identified to you when we first collected your personal information.
