From time to time, Yahoo!7 may invite users to participate in usability studies, surveys, and other types of qualitative and quantitative research to help us better design our site, plan new features to add to our products and services, and help us understand our users' wants and needs. Yahoo!7 also conducts research using data from our internal records. Research Panels
- Yahoo!7 recruits research subjects through advertising banners, email messages sent to users who have already indicated a desire to participate in user research, and through market research firms.
- Participants in research are often required to sign separate privacy or confidentiality agreements and may be compensated for their time.
- Information about audiences and traffic from Yahoo!7's own log files and user databases may also be used for research purposes in an ongoing effort to improve our products and services.
- Statistics from research may be shared with our partners, prospective partners, or advertisers when these data are aggregated (not individually identifiable) or averaged across many users.
