The collection and reporting of information you provide will be maintained with high standard of professional conduct. All your personal information is pooled together and strictly remains confidential and anonymous unless explicitly stated in the study. GLocal Panel will respect your privacy at all times and the confidentiality of your answers will be maintained as described in this Policy.

Before any professional is added to GLocal Panel, each professional is sent an invite (e-mail) to join the GLocal Panel. To ensure the privacy of professionals, each invite provides for an unsubscribe option. Once this option is selected by the professionals, Glocal Panel does not contact such professionals in future.
WHO IS COLLECTING INFORMATION AND FOR WHAT PURPOSE?
GLocal Panel collects valuable information, which assists in developing new products and services.
When you are on a GLocal Panel site and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with GLocal Panel alone, unless it is specifically stated otherwise. If data is being collected and/or maintained by any company other than GLocal Panel, you will be notified prior to the time of the data collection or transfer.
You acknowledge and accept that GLocal Panel may pass your personal data to any third party company which assists GLocal Panel in managing the Honoraria Program available to its members. For the avoidance of doubt, such information may include your name and address and all other information necessary to enable these honorary providers or any other third party to properly administer our honoraria program.
WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
We collect, store and use the following kinds of personal data:
• Information about your visits to and the use of the Website
• Information that you provide to us for the purpose of registering with us and for making use of our services (e.g. updating your profile data to ensure you are invited to studies relevant to you or updating your address details to make sure your honoraria can be send to you)
INFORMATION ABOUT WEBSITE VISITS
We may collect information about your computer and your visits to this website such as your IP address, geographical location, browser type, referral source, length of visit and number of page views. We may use this information in the administration of this website, to improve the website's usability, and customize the content and/or layout of our page for each individual visitor.
We may place a text file called a "cookie" in the browser files of your computer. The cookie itself does not contain personal information although it will enable us to relate your use of the GLocal Panel site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided.
Once a registered GLocal Panel member, you are invited to provide additional information in your personal and professional profile describing your credentials, professional experiences, academic background, biography, etc.
Your GLocal Panel profile is only available for viewing by you. You may edit your profile at any time by using your e-mail and password to log in to your personal member pages.
Providing additional information in your personal profile beyond what is required at registration is entirely optional and can be altered or removed by you at any time. Providing further information will enable GLocal Panel to better match panellists to available studies and therefore it is advised to keep your profile up to date at all times, to avoid disappointment.
SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA
GLocal Panel operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorised individuals have access to the information provided by our customers.
We follow reasonable technical and management practices to help protect the confidentiality, security and integrity of data stored on our system. Unfortunately, data transmission over the Internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet. While no computer system is completely secure, we believe the measures implemented by GLocal Panel reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved.
GLocal Panel maintains a strict "No-Spam" policy, which means that GLocal Panel does not intend to sell, rent or otherwise give your e-mail address to a third party without your consent.
CERTAIN EXCEPTIONAL DISCLOSURES
We may disclose your information if necessary to protect our legal rights or if the information relates to actual or threatened harmful conduct. Disclosure may be required by law or if we receive legal process.
GLocal Panel may at any time, without notice to you and in its sole discretion, amend these Terms and Conditions. Please review these Terms and Conditions periodically. Your continued use of the Website and participation in our research projects after any such amendments signifies your acceptance thereof.
