Merritt Research Services is committed to safeguarding your privacy.
Merritt Research Services, LLC ("Merritt Research")
respects the privacy of anyone who uses the Merritt Research Web site (www.merrittresearch.com)
and the Merritt Express online applications.
We require people who register to use the Merritt
Express online applications (the "Services") to give us contact
information. Depending on the services chosen, we ask for contact and
account information, such as name, company name, address, phone number,
e-mail address and password, in addition to financial and billing
information, such as billing name, address and credit card number.
Merritt Research uses the information we collect to
set up the Services for individuals and their organizations. We may also
use the information to contact customers to further discuss
their interest in our company, the Services we provide and ways we can
improve them, and to send information such as announcements of promotions
and events regarding our company or partners. We may also e-mail a
customer newsletter and updates about the Services or the company. You can
opt out of receiving these communications by replying to them at the time
they are distributed or at any time by
sending us a message.
Cookies are files Web browsers place on a computer's hard drive. They are used to help us authenticate clients and provide timesaving shortcuts and preferences. Merritt Research uses a persistent encrypted cookie, if the client requests, to save and retrieve individual authentication information as well as other per-client device preferences.
The Merritt Research Web site contains links to other Web sites. Merritt Research is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these other Web sites.

Merritt Research has security measures in place for Merritt Express to help protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the data under Merritt Research's control. When the Services are accessed using Netscape Navigator, or Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 4.0 or higher, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology protects information using both server authentication and data encryption to help ensure data is safe, secure and available only to you. Merritt Research also implements an advanced security method based on dynamic data and encoded session identifications and hosts the Services in a secure server environment using firewalls, biometric identification and other advanced technology to prevent interference or access from outside intruders. Finally, Merritt Research requires unique user names and passwords that must be entered each time a customer logs on. These safeguards help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the appropriate use of data.
Merritt Research offers you a means to choose how we may use information you provided. If, at any time after registering for information or ordering the Services, you change your mind about receiving information from us, send us a request specifying your new choice.
