The User hereby accepts that all anonymous responses and interactions data created by the User may be analyzed by the Company, and that such analysis may result in the publication and dissemination of research and findings based on such data. Such analysis and research might be expected to look at aspects of lexical ability according to age, gender, native language, educational experience, and culture. Under no circumstances will any such published research disclose any User's personally identifiable information such as actual names and email addresses unless the User has specifically permitted such disclosure.

The Company may from time to time request to publish a User's comments and or endorsement of the Services.
