VoiceFive, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of comScore, Inc. (“Comscore”), ("VoiceFive" or referred to as “we”, “us”, or “our”). We are a professional market research company that conducts research projects with participants from around the world. In most cases, these participants take surveys to share their opinions with us.
The information you contribute is used by Comscore, a globally-recognized authority on market research and cross-platform consumption behavior trends, whose data are routinely cited by major media outlets such as The New York Times®, The Wall Street Journal®, and CNN®. The data are extensively relied upon by some of the world’s largest media companies, advertisers and film studios and its strategic partners include the most important players in the TV and digital media and advertising ecosystem. To learn more about Comscore, please see www.comscore.com.
VoiceFive also manages several market research panels. Each of these panels has its own website with a description of the panel, the type of research performed, and the sponsors of this research. The privacy policies for these panels can be found at the respective panels' websites, a list of which can be found here.
What information is collected and why
Information you provide to VoiceFive.
We may collect personal information that you choose to provide to us. For example, if you contact us through our Website, we may collect personal identifiers (e.g., your name and contact information) as well as any other information that you voluntarily provide to us in order to respond to your inquiry or verify your identity, where necessary.
This information is used to manage your participation, verify your identity for Data Subject Requests, and process applicable rewards and prizes.
Information collected automatically when you visit our Website.
Our Website and application automatically create logs regarding your activity on our Website. These logs may identify the features that you use, the actions that you take, and the information that you access while on our Website or mobile app.
The personal information collected from you may include online identifiers (e.g., IP address) and Internet or other electronic network activity including information about your browsing history, operating system, browser type, website preferences, your use of our website or application (e.g., time accessed, duration of visit, etc.). We generally use this information in statistical and aggregate formats to assess the effectiveness of our Website and application and to better understand your priorities and interests.
Information collected when you respond to a survey.
- personal and online identifiers (e.g., name, cookie ID, device ID, IP address, etc.),
- geolocation based on the IP address,
- demographic information (e.g., race and gender),
- education information (e.g., level of education), or
- any other information you provide about you and your household.
VoiceFive also conducts surveys on behalf of third parties, including Google, and may set cookies in support of those survey efforts. The surveys may collect all the information listed in this section. To opt out of receiving VoiceFive studies on the Google Network click here. If you choose to opt out, a cookie will be placed on your browser that will prevent you from receiving other studies from VoiceFive while on the Google Network. However, if your browser does not accept cookies, or if you delete all of your cookies, then you may be presented with other studies from VoiceFive while on the Google Network. Additionally, this opt-out is only effective when you are using the Internet browser you were using when you opted out.
Information Collected from Third Parties.
We may collect information about you from third parties and service providers collecting your information on our behalf. We may also collect information about you from information resellers, search engines, email providers, social networks, and other application service providers whose Internet sites or applications you use. For a list of some of our specific partners please click here.
We may use third parties such as television and mobile communication service providers, website and application operators, social media platforms, consumer preference reporting companies, and credit reporting agencies, to obtain information about your:
- online web browsing activities,
- television viewing behavior (such as programs that you watch and record, your usage of your set-top box, your consumption of on-demand programming and over-the-top content, and your usage of interactive television applications),
- interests, your use of credit, and
- usage of applications, social media platforms, and your mobile device(s).
This information may identify the content that you view on the websites you visit or the applications you use, which may further provide Comscore with inferences drawn from the information about your actual and predicted affiliations, interests, and other characteristics. We may also share information with and receive information from third parties who help us enhance our data, such as providing additional demographic information.
We use the information collected through your survey responses, combined with information from other sources, to make predictions and evaluations about current and future digital consumption behavior based on inferences drawn from the information collected. We make this data available so that our customers may enhance their own understanding of digital consumption trends.
Additionally, we may use the personal information that you provide to us to operate and improve our products and services, including our Websites, to communicate with you, to provide you with information or services that you have requested, and to provide our products and services to our customers.
We may also use the information we have collected from you to identify your use of search engines, email providers, social networks and other application service providers whose Internet sites you visit.
How we share the information we collect
- to operate VoiceFive’s products and services or support general operations of business;
- to integrate the products and services of our business partners;
- to use third-party cloud services to host our Website, and process and store the information we process about you; and
- for any other legitimate business purpose.
- our customers, which include, among others, media companies including Google, brands, public relations companies, and marketing and advertising agencies; and
- joint industry committees (“JICs”) involved in media audience measurement and research. Further details of JICs can be found here.
Compliance and compelled disclosures. We may share personal information:
- with public authorities to respond to subpoenas, court orders, and other legal process, or as otherwise required by law;
- to protect the rights, privacy, safety, and property of VoiceFive, our customers, our business partners, or others; and
- to exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims, to enforce our contracts, to investigate, respond to and resolve problems or inquiries (including governmental inquiries), or to permit us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain.
How long we keep the information collected
We store your information for as long as is reasonably necessary for the purposes listed above or as required by applicable local law.
Your choices about your personal information
Certain domestic and international laws provide individuals with rights related to their personal information. These rights may include the rights, subject to certain exceptions, to access specific pieces of personal information, correct any errors to personal information, object to the processing of personal information, and delete the personal information. Individuals may also have the right under certain laws to opt out of the sale of personal information as defined by that law. Please note that these consumer rights and definition of “personal information” vary by jurisdiction.
We provide the right to access and delete personal information, subject to certain exceptions. To exercise your choices about your personal information, including choices which may not be listed above, please visit our Data Subject Rights Page. You may also contact us by email at email@example.com.
If you would like to submit a request to opt out of the sale of your personal information, you may also exercise your right on our Data Subject Rights Page.
We may need to request additional information from you to verify your identity (e.g., your email address, cookie identifier, machine identifier, and/or device identifier) or understand the scope of your request. However, you will not be required to create an account with us to submit a request or have it fulfilled. You may designate an authorized agent to exercise your rights by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of the above rights. We may, however, offer you certain financial incentives permitted by applicable law as compensation for allowing us to collect, sell, or maintain your personal information through your participation in our market research efforts.
Interest-based advertising and market research
What is interest-based advertising?
Interest-based advertising, also known as Online Behavioral Advertising, allows advertisers to display ads tailored to your individual interests based on how you browse and shop online, as well as to provide advertising-related services such as ad delivery, reporting, attribution, analytics, and market research.
We may use third parties and service providers on our Websites, as discussed in the What information is collected and why section, to collect information for interest-based advertising. This process may involve third parties and services providers using tagging technology, such as a cookie, on your device. These tags may collect data about your Web browsing over time and across digital properties, including information about the possible relationships among different browsers and devices. We adhere to the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Self-Regulatory Principles in connection to all interest-based advertising activities.
We may also set tags on your browser that collect information for ScorecardResearch, a service offered by Full Circle Studies, Inc., which is also a part of the Comscore market research group. The information collected from these tags is used for interest-based advertising purposes, where appropriate. Please note interest-based advertising services based on information collected by ScorecardResearch are not provided in the European Union ("EU").
How do I manage my preferences for interest-based advertising?
You may visit www.aboutads.info/choices to learn more about interest-based advertising, to opt out of our collection and transfer of Web browsing information for interest-based advertising purposes, and to opt out of the collection and use of information for this purpose by other companies that participate in industry self-regulation. To opt out of our collection and transfer of application usage information for third parties to use for their own interest-based advertising purposes, you can use any controls that are provided for this purpose by the operating system on your mobile device. Please note that opting out will not stop advertising from appearing in your browser or in the applications you use. It may make the ads you see less relevant to your interests. You may also continue to receive interest-based advertising from other companies.
What is market research?
Market research is an organized effort to gather information about markets and customers. With the use of ScorecardResearch tags and surveys, Comscore’s market research group collects and analyzes information to provide products and services to companies around the world. This information helps companies better understand and meet the needs of consumers.
How do I manage my preferences for market research?
To control your level of participation in our market research programs or opt out, click here. By opting out of our market research program, ScorecardResearch Tags will only be able to count your visit to a particular site but not identify your device beyond that count. Additionally, if your mobile device platform offers settings to limit data collection for interest-based advertising, you can use these settings to opt out of participating in our market research programs. For example, your device may "Limit Ad Tracking."
What does opting out of market research on your browser do?
The browser opt-out mechanisms linked above are cookie based (i.e., a cookie must be on your computer to tell our systems that you have opted out). The cookie-based method does not prevent us from identifying certain events (e.g., when a user visits a website). The method, however, prevents us from associating that event with your browser or otherwise identifying you beyond us merely counting your visit. If you delete, block, or otherwise restrict cookies, this opt-out may not be effective. Additionally, because different computers and different Internet browsers require their own version of the opt-out cookie, you may need to perform this opt-out process on any computers and browsers that you want to be opted-out.
Other important information about your personal information
Security. We use organizational, technical, and administrative measures to protect your personal information. For an overview of our security measures, click here.
In addition, VoiceFive submits to an annual independent SOC 3 audit, the assertion is available here.
International Visitors and the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks
If you visit our Website or participate in our program from locations outside of the United States, please note that any information you provide to us through your use of our Website or your participation in the program may be transferred to and processed in countries other than the country from which you accessed our Website or participated in our program, including the United States where our central database is operated. Subject to the next paragraph below, please be aware that the United States, and other countries in which your data may be maintained, may not offer an equivalent level of protection as provided for in your country.
Authoritative Version. When the text of this Policy is available in multiple languages, the English version is the authoritative version, except where prohibited by applicable law.
If you have any concerns, questions, or would just like to better understand our privacy practices, please send an email to email@example.com. If you prefer to contact us by mail, please write to VoiceFive, Inc., ATTN: Privacy, 11950 Democracy Drive, Reston, VA 20190.

You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless us, our subsidiaries and affiliates, and our and their members, managers, officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors, retailers and suppliers (collectively, the “Service Providers”) from and against all claims (whether or not such claims are merely alleged, settled or finally adjudicated), losses, expenses, damages and costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs, and expenses resulting from any violation of these Terms of Service or any activity related to your account and use of the Site (including negligent or wrongful conduct) by you or any other person accessing this System using your Internet account. We reserve the right, at our own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you at your expense, and you shall not in any event settle or otherwise dispose of any matter without our prior written consent.
We may give you responses or notices by e-mail to the address most recently provided by you, posting to this System, or by written communication sent by U.S. Postal Service and/or FedEx to the address most recently provided by you.

Final Arbitration: The arbitrator’s award shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.

Class Action Waiver: To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration under these Terms of Service shall be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to these Terms of Service, whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise.

The arbitral tribunal may not consolidate more than one (1) person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitral tribunal has no power to consider the enforceability of this class arbitration waiver and any challenge to the class arbitration waiver may only be raised in a court of competent jurisdiction.
Some jurisdictions, such as the State of New Jersey, do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, in certain jurisdictions, some of the above provisions may not apply to you; all other provisions of these Terms of Service remain in full force and effect.
Our failure to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any provision of these Terms of Service shall not be construed as a waiver of any provision or right. Neither the course of conduct between the parties nor trade practice shall act to modify any of these Terms of Service. We may assign our rights and duties under these Terms of Service to any party at any time without notice to you and without your express consent. You will not assign any of your rights or delegate any of your obligations under these Terms of Service without our prior written consent. Any purported assignment or delegation in violation of this Section is null and void. No assignment or delegation relieves you of any of your obligations under these Terms of Service. If any provision of these Terms of Service shall be held unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms of Service and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. These Terms of Service, together with our , constitute the entire agreement between the parties pertaining to the subject matter hereof and supersedes in their entirety any and all written or oral agreements previously existing between the parties with respect to such subject matter. Some people who endorse our services may receive consideration for their endorsement.
