- Types of Information We Collect
Information you give us. We collect information you voluntarily provide to us, such as the following:
Registration information. When you sign up for a GeoPoll account, we may collect certain personal information from you, meaning information about you that can uniquely identify you such as your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address (“personal information”), if you choose to provide us with such information. Upon registration, we may also collect information about you that does not uniquely identify you, such as information related to your account settings and preferences, if you choose to provide us with such information.
Survey Responses. When you participate in a GeoPoll survey, whether through the Site or other MAI websites, text messages, APIs, Mobile App, and/or buttons, we may collect and store your responses to such surveys. Your survey responses are owned by MAI and used by MAI or its contracted partners.
Information from other sources.
Usage and Device Information. When you access and use the Services, we may collect certain information by automated means, such as cookies and web beacons. A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a visitor’s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A “web beacon,” also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag or clear GIF, is used to transmit information back to a web server. We also may use third-party website analytics tools that collect information about visitor traffic on the Services. The information we may collect by automated means may include (i) usage information such as your IP address, browser information and other information related to your visit to and use of the Services; and (ii) information about the device you use to access and use the Services, such as your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, and mobile network information including your phone number. All usage and device information may be associated with your GeoPoll account.
Location Information. When you access and use the Services using a mobile device, we may collect, store, process, and use information about your actual location through GPS signals or other technologies that determine location, including, but not limited to device latitude/longitude, accuracy, heading, speed, and altitude, cell tower and Wi-Fi access point information. All location information may be associated with your GeoPoll account.

- How We Use Your Information
We may utilize information obtained from you to collect additional information about you from our third-party partners and may combine information that we obtain from you with information from such third-party partners.
We may also use the information we obtain about you in other ways with your consent.

Legal basis for processing Personal Information (EEA visitors only)
If you are a visitor/partner/client/respondent located in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), GeoPoll is likely considered the data controller of your personal information. When required due to the nature of specific project GeoPoll will activate a Data Protection Officer to oversee the data controller competency. The Data Protection Officer can be contacted at email@example.com.
Our legal basis for collecting, storing, processing, and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it. However, we will normally collect, store, process, and use personal information from you only where we have your consent to do so (i.e. opt-in), where we need the personal information to perform a contract with you, or where the collection, storage, processing, and/or use is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms. In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you.
If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your Personal Information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information). Similarly, if we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are.
Use of Navigational Information
We use navigational information to operate and improve the Site and the Services. We may also use navigational information alone or in combination with personal information to provide you with personalized information about GeoPoll.
