What we do
Jackson Associates is in the business of data collection for the purpose of tailoring marketing and advertising to better serve consumer needs. We maintain a database of respondent information in order to more efficiently locate and screen potential participants for marketing research studies. While we screen, recruit and host the marketing research studies, it is our clients who determine the nature of the study, as well as the criteria required for participation.
Information gathering and security
Registration for our database is voluntary. Complete only the information that you are comfortable sharing.
Note: Basic demographic
information (sex, age, race, income, education) remains key to
the marketing research process, and contact lists are generated
from our database based on a study's screening criteria.When
a particular piece of information is missing from a respondent
record that file is simply excluded from a particular list.
Profile information will be updated via online surveys. Your information is handled with the utmost respect to privacy. Records are managed by a limited number of specialized personnel. Most records remain electronic, and paper records remain in a secure filing system during and after the processing phase. We never sell or exchange respondent information.
Electronic database call
lists contain abbreviated information specific to the query. These lists reside in our call center until a study's conclusion; then they are returned to Data Processing for profile editing and deletion.
Only authorized personnel are permitted to access
customer information. In addition, all Jackson Associates employees
are required to sign non-disclosure agreements regarding the
protection of information provided by clients and survey respondents.

research studies. We comply with federal and state laws regarding
