What information do we collect?

When you visit our website, our web server automatically logs your domain and notes what pages you view. The only personal identifying information we collect from you is what you provide on a voluntary basis, such as contact, survey, or application information. This information can include your name, address, email address and phone number. North Fork Research only contacts individuals who have completed the double opt-in procedure to become an independent contractor for North Fork Research, including an application and email verification.

While the only personal information that we will gather is that information you directly provide to us, we will gather certain non-personal information from your IP (Internet Protocol) address. Your IP address can tell us things like what part of the world you’re connecting from, or what Internet service provider you are using.

Your browser offers “cookies” that, if you allow their use, store bits of data on your computer about your visit to our site. This data includes which pages you visit most. When you revisit the North Fork Research web site, these cookies enable us to customize our web site content according to your preferences. However, cookies do not give us any personally identifying information about you. The only way we get personal information identifying you is if you give it to us.

What happens to your personal information in a business transfer?

While we do not anticipate it, every business nowadays should plan for the possibility that it might sell certain or all of its assets to another company, or that it might buy certain assets of another company. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the business assets that is transferred. We reserve the right to transfer your information in the event of an asset sale or a business combination, merger or consolidation.
