However, we use a third party newsletter service called iContact, and we load our users’ email addresses into that system for distribution purposes only. iContact has a customer agreement with Enterprise Hive that ensures our customer data privacy. Enterprise Hive uses SurveyMonkey as well as other third party survey tools and we may also ask you to consider responding to appropriate surveys to support our industry research.
