Information Collection and Use

Communication Labs collects two types of information: Personal information, which means information that can be used to uniquely identify and contact you; and non-personal information, which does not provide direct association with you.

When you register to use Thrive Matters we collect the following:

  • Your demographic information, which we use for our research. Your demographic information is non-personal. Your age is used to help provide guidance on content relevance provided to you in the application.
  • Your answers to our questionnaires, which will allow us to create a customized profile for you. Your answers to our questionnaire are non-personal but we link the answers to your account details which is used to support the profile. Traits from your profile may be included in collective/group analysis if you accepted to join as part of an organization. If surveys are provided and you have accepted to be part of an organization, then your responses may be provided to the organization.
  • Any data which is used for research will be anonymized.
  • Device information. We may collect information about the device or any computer you may use to download or stream a copy of the Thrive Matters application on your device, including, where available, the device’s or computer’s unique device identifiers, operating system, browser type and mobile network information as well as the device’s telephone number, for system administration. We may associate device information with your sign-in data and will treat the combined information as personal data in accordance with this policy for as long as it is combined.
