The Olson Research Group is a full-service marketing research and consulting firm that conducts a variety of surveys, both online and offline. Online surveys are conducted over the Internet, while offline studies include telephone surveys, mail questionnaires, personal interviews and focus groups. We offer our online survey services through this website (http://www.olsononlinesystems.com/) and our home page for The Olson Research Group is http://www.olsonresearchgroup.com/.
Our survey website provides panelists with the opportunity to express opinions and attitudes about the most current issues. We conduct research that involves people from around the world, in areas such as pharmaceutical/healthcare, consumer goods and services, animal health and agriculture. The invaluable information and opinions you provide through market research surveys helps companies develop new products and services, and modify existing ones to better suit your needs. We are commissioned by a wide variety of clients, including important decision makers in major corporations and organizations. When we provide a client with survey results, they are aggregated with all other study participants and stripped of any personally identifiable information thus as a participant in a study, your identity is kept completely anonymous.
We are committed to keeping our website safe and secure for your use. The Olson Research Group conforms to the Council of American Survey Research Organizations (CASRO)'s Code of Standards and Ethics for Survey Research, the American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR)'s Code of Professional Ethics and Practices, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC)'s Fair Information Practice Principles, and privacy guidelines in both the U.S. and abroad.
Protecting Your Privacy
As a professional marketing research firm, protecting survey participants' privacy is an integral part of our business, both with our online and offline studies. The Olson Research Group will never sell your personally identifiable information to another party, or use it for solicitation purposes. We use this information for internal purposes and share it only with our research partners in order to gather and analyze aggregated, anonymous survey results. We share information with our partners only in limited circumstances, specifically to allow our clients the ability to validate our work, or to use the data as an analytical aid. We share information pursuant to CASRO's "Standards Regarding Disclosure of Respondent-Identifiable Data to Clients," and have our client first confirm in writing that they will only use that information for these purposes.
It is important to us that panelists are able to access and correct their information. We want to make sure we can contact you again, and we also want to ensure that our demographic survey data is up-to-date.

Additional Survey Data
As part of the survey process, we often ask panelists other demographic information (e.g. income level), and other information related to interests, hobbies, and product usage. We collect this information so that we can invite panelists to future surveys that fit their interests, and so that we can aggregate the responses received by various broad categories and report the aggregated results to our clients. We also summarize information about the panel to develop statistics ensuring that the panel is representative of the general population or market segment we are studying. Finally, we use this information to analyze how responses differ across demographic segments. For example, we may look at how answers differ among gender, age or income levels.
