3.1 Survey Reports. Student centered learning puts student interests first and acknowledges the student voice as central to the learning experience. By conducting the survey, Sponsor is looking to understand how important a student centric philosophy is for students and recent graduates when it comes to their higher learning institutions. Sponsor will use an Entrant’s survey responses (which may include information such as an Entrant’s name, age, ethnicity, gender, e-mail, address, whether they attend a college/polytechnic/university, year of graduation, etc. collectively “Personal Information”) and the survey responses of other Entrants (“Survey Responses”), in the aggregate and anonymized, to author and publish articles (online, print, or other media), generate reports or promotional or marketing materials or other records or documents recording, describing or summarizing the Survey Responses and any insights or opinions or conclusions Sponsor may derive from the same (“Survey Reports”). Some Survey Reports will be internal to Sponsor (“Internal Reports”) and are not intended for public disclosure. Other Survey Reports may be published generally or may be provided by Sponsor to specific other persons, including but not limited to, institutions of higher learning, business partners, Deloitte Entities, or clients of Sponsor (“External Reports”).  Sponsor will use commercially reasonable efforts to not include any Personal Information in any Internal or External Report which could reasonably be expected to identify an Entrant.  Sponsor is under no obligation to use an Entrant’s survey responses for any Survey Reports.
