Our Commitment
IRB is an online market research data collection company dedicated to provide high quality data to market research firms and other data collection companies. To protect your privacy and confidentiality is IRB's top priority. The data that IRB collects is only for market research purpose and IRB always reviews or publishes it as an aggregate information (about group). Individual information is never disclosed without your prior consent as it is irrelevant to the research conducted by IRB or IRB's clients. Registering as a member of Online Survey Bureau doesn't constitute the consent. Also this information is not disclosed to any other individual directly from IRB.
Personal Identifiable Information
At the time of registration site asks you to provide your basic personal information and once you are registered, it further asks you to update more personal and consumer information which helps us to find suitable surveys for you.


The site asks the below information:
E-Mail Address:

Date of Birth:
So that we can update your age automatically and invite you to participate in a suitable survey.
Gender, Education Level, Household Income, Employment Status, Ethnic Background, Race, Zip Code/Postcode/Pin Code:

If you are not a member of Online Survey Bureau and we collect the personal identification information (e.g. e-mail ID, Date of Birth, Gender, Household Income, Education Level, Employment status, State/Province Zip Code/Postcode/Pin Code and IP Address), the only reason is to route you to the right surveys matching to the information.
