Kathy Joe:

Can you describe in ESOMAR's proposal how the research data will be used if it is linked a campaign or client.  For example, does the provision of not connected to an individual mean that it won't be used in any way to help create personna's or an algorithm, for example, that may be used in a campaign or a targeted related online ad event?

Thanks

Making market research part of the DNT standard through a permitted use doesn't make it a legitimate business practice.
