Performance Monitoring and Performance Enhancement Cookies
Some cookies are used to collect information about how survey respondents interact with surveys. We use the information to analyze how users use surveys, detect problems with our surveys, and help us improve and refine our services and features. These cookies generally collect information in a pseudonymous form and allow us to determine information such as the number of visitors to a webpage, how visitors came to the website, and the pages they visited. (Example cookie names: ep202)
Other cookies help us to manage the traffic that comes to our website and provide you with quicker response times by distributing the traffic across our different servers, otherwise known as load balancing. (Example cookie names: EP201)
Targeting or Advertising Cookies
