What personally identifiable information does Bloomberg Global Insight Panel collect from me?


Bloomberg Global Insight Panel collects information in several ways from different parts of our network of web sites. Some personal information is gathered when you register. During registration, Bloomberg Global Insight Panel asks for your email address, country and a few questions related to your lifestyle. The more information you volunteer (and the more accurate it is), the better we are able to customize your experience. If you contact Bloomberg Global Insight Panel we may keep a record of that correspondence. Whenever Bloomberg Global Insight Panel collects personal information we make an effort to include a link to this Privacy Policy on that page.
