Our Privacy Policy

Honeycomb Collaborative respects your personal privacy and is committed to adhering to federal and state privacy laws and industry guidelines in order to protect you and your identity. This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) describes how we handle the personal information that you provide to us on this site (the “Honeycomb Web Site” or the “Web Site”). This Privacy Policy applies only to the Honeycomb Web Site, not to any other sites that may be accessible from here.

This Privacy Policy includes:

  • What information Honeycomb collects from you
  • How Honeycomb uses your information
  • How Honeycomb protects your privacy
  • How you can contact Honeycomb

Please be sure to read this Privacy Policy before using the Web Site or submitting information to us. By using the Web Site, you accept and agree to our privacy practices. Our Privacy Policy may change over time and your continued use of the Web Site means that you accept such changes, so please check this area for updates to this Privacy Policy.


Active Information Collection

Like many other web sites, we actively collect information from users of our Web Site both by asking specific questions through the comment submission, registration and other features of the Web Site and by permitting you to communicate directly with us via email. Some of the information that you submit during any comment submission, registration or other online process, may be personally identifiable (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your name, business name, address, phone number, fax number, e-mail address, etc.) and may include other sensitive information, such as product information.

When you visit the Web Site, we will not collect any personally identifiable or other sensitive information from you unless you provide it to us voluntarily. If you choose to register, during the registration process you will be asked for certain information, most of which is required in order to complete the registration. We will inform you which information is optional.

Honeycomb does not have control over the privacy policies applied by any other party to whom you may disclose information. Third party sites that are linked to from the Web Site, including those of our Sponsors, are not under the control of Honeycomb and we are not responsible for their content or privacy policies. If you would like information on any other party’s privacy policy, you should contact that party directly, and we encourage you to do so.

Passive Information Collection

As you navigate through a web site, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without you actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as navigational data collection. Like most web site operators, we track IP addresses, use cookies and assign Internet tags. Your Internet browser automatically transmits to this Web Site some of this anonymous information, such as the URL of the Web site you just came from and the Internet Protocol (IP) address and the browser version your computer is currently using. Our system also automatically gathers information about the areas you visit on this site.

This site may also collect anonymous information from your computer through cookies and Internet tags. Most Internet browsers enable you to erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. However, certain features of this site might not work without cookies.

We passively collect information to understand what areas of the Web Site are most popular, which areas may require improvement and what technologies are being used by our visitors. This information helps us to update and improve the Web Site. We also use this information for security purposes, to detect and to block security breaches and to provide you with a safe online environment. Honeycomb does not collect personally identifiable information automatically, but we may tie information collected automatically to your previously submitted personally identifiable information.


Your contact information and product information will be used for the purposes for which you supplied it to us. If you direct comments to us or request information from us, we may ask you questions in an effort to tailor our response to your situation. We may also enhance or merge personally identifiable information with data obtained from third parties for the same purpose.

Honeycomb will not sell your personally identifiable information to any outside organization for the organization’s own use without your consent. Honeycomb may use third-party vendors to perform certain services on behalf of the site, such as hosting the site, designing and/or operating the site’s features, or analyzing users’ interaction with the site. These vendors are instructed not to use the information for any other purpose.

Honeycomb does not otherwise distribute to third parties your personally identifiable information. Honeycomb, however, will have no liability for disclosure of information obtained due to errors in transmission or the unauthorized intervention of third parties.

Honeycomb may provide aggregate statistics about our research participants and related information to reputable third parties, but these statistics will not include any personally identifying information. Honeycomb also will disclose any information that it is required to disclose by law or by an appropriate government authority.


Client Information

We treat all information we receive from clients as confidential and do not use the information for any purpose other than to fulfill our obligations to them. We keep client information secure at all times and prevent the misuse and unauthorized disclosure of it by our employees or any third parties.

Research Participants’ Information

In order to provide our services to clients, we may employ the use of client contact lists which would contain personal information such as names, email addresses, phone numbers, and mailing addresses. On studies involving European citizens or other individuals covered by the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), client contact lists or other personal data will only be processed in accordance with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield.

Any client supplied, personally identifiable information is destroyed after its use. We never store client lists beyond their immediate use. Additionally, all responses to our research are completely confidential. We collect data in our studies for research purposes only, and our use of that information will be limited to that purpose. Research participant answers will not be used by any entity as an aid for sales.

Research participation is voluntary, and sample members always have the opportunity to decline involvement or to “opt out” of the research after agreeing to participate.

In order to provide our services to clients, we may request from research participants their personal information such as names, email address, phone number, or mailing address. In cases of video recorded research, the ability to record facial images could be requested. This collection of personal information from research participants is done solely through the legal basis of consent.

We do not rent, sell or give personal information to any third party for the purpose of directly marketing any products or services. In some cases, we may need to share personal information with third parties that provide research services in support of the research project. On those rare occasions, any third party engaged is obligated to follow all of the same privacy protection regulations as followed by Honeycomb.

Sharing of Information

We may share your information in the following ways: (a) with our service providers, as necessary to enable them to provide services to us (in which cases such service providers are prevented from using the information except has necessary to provide the services); (b) with our clients with the consent of the respondent; (c) as reasonably necessary to comply with law or a legal process (including a court or government order or subpoena), to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, to enforce this privacy policy, and to protect the rights, property or safety of Honeycomb, our users, and/or the public; (d) if we sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of our business or assets, including your personal information, in connection with a corporate transaction such as a merger, consolidation, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets or in the event of bankruptcy, in which case we will make reasonable efforts to require the recipient to honor this privacy policy; or (e) with your express consent.


We have implemented both technical and procedural methods to maintain the integrity and security of all sensitive information under our control and protect it against loss, misuse and unauthorized alteration. In addition, our electronic files are backed up for redundancy and designed to be accessible only by authorized individuals.

This site contains links to other web sites operated by third parties that may be of interest to you. We cannot control these third party sites, which may collect personal information from you. When you follow a link and leave this site, you do so at your own risk.


The Site is operated in the United States. If you are located in the European Union, Canada or elsewhere outside of the United States, please be aware that information collected on the Site will be transferred to and processed in the United States. By using this Site or providing us with any information, you consent to this transfer and to the processing and storage of your information in the United States, a jurisdiction in which the privacy laws may not be as comprehensive as those in the country where you reside and/or are a citizen.


Honeycomb only retains data collected from users for as long as the users account is active or until the user has requested their data be removed.


If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about this Privacy Policy or the information practices of the Web Site, please contact us via our website.
