3. Information We Collect and How We Collect It
Surveys. Before we ask whether you’d like to participate in the Panel, we’d like to learn more about you. To do that, we have invited you to participate in an initial survey where we will ask you to provide information about yourself and how you interact with our products. For example, we may ask you about when you last purchased our products and from where, where you may want to see our products available in the future and what you eat and drink with Impossible Foods products. We may also ask you to confirm or provide certain personal information such as your preferred name, email and zip code, as well as demographic information about yourself, including your age, gender and household composition. Based on your responses to the initial survey, we may ask you to participate in the Panel. If you participate in the Panel, from time to time we may ask you to provide responses to other short surveys soliciting further information on what you think of our products, how you consume them and other Impossible Foods product-related information.
Events and Other In-Person Activities. If you are selected to participate in the Panel and decide to do so, we may also invite you to participate in certain events and product research activities.

At these events and activities, we will ask you to provide various information and feedback regarding Impossible Foods products and your purchase experiences.
