Tracking Our Emails to Our Members: When we send emails to our registered Reveal Research Studio members we’ll sometimes track who opened the emails and who went so far as to click on any of the hyperlinks.

Information From Other Sources: We may obtain additional information about you by using your email address, or other information, to directly, or through one or more services, search over the internet, or elsewhere.
