Social Contract Privacy Policy | Social Contract

Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy describes how your personal information is collected, used, and shared when you visit Social Contract (the “Site”).

What data do we collect?

We collect two types of data:

In addition, we use your email address to allow you to create an account and prompt you to answer survey questions.

Your Survey Responses

Social Contract cares about one thing specifically: not collecting or storing your personal data, especially your responses to survey questions. As you respond to questions, your answers are never stored in a way that could associate them with you personally. When you answer a question, we use your answer to do two things: update the score of any groups you are a member of, and update our aggregate data about answers to a particular question (this helps us understand the responses to questions that are posed). Again, to be clear, your name, email, or any other personally identifiable information is never associated with that answer.

Your Device Information

When you visit the Site, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information.”

We collect Device Information using the following technologies:


We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud, and more generally to improve and optimize our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns).


We share your Device Information with third parties to help us use your Device Information, as described above.  For example, we use Google Analytics to help us understand how our customers use the Site–you can read more about how Google uses your Personal Information here:  You can also opt-out of Google Analytics here:

Finally, we may also share your Device Information to comply with applicable laws and regulations, to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other lawful request for information we receive, or to otherwise protect our rights.


As described above, we may use your Device Information to provide you with targeted advertisements or marketing communications we believe may be of interest to you.  For more information about how targeted advertising works, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s (“NAI”) educational page at

Additionally, you can opt out of some of these services by visiting the Digital Advertising Alliance’s opt-out portal at:


You have the right to access personal information we hold about you and to ask that your personal information be corrected, updated, or deleted. If you would like to exercise this right, please contact us through the contact information below.

Additionally, please note that your information may be transferred outside of your country of residence, including to the United States and to Germany.


The Site is not intended for individuals under the age of 18, or the legal adult age of your locale.


We may update this privacy policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to our practices or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons.


For more information about our privacy practices, if you have questions, or if you would like to make a complaint, please contact us by e-mail at or by mail using the details provided below:
