did not get that, thanks for the heads up. I delete that stuff also.
i'm wondering what it means though...i notice that Pinecone is apparently owned by a section of Nielsen and Nielsen makes money from tracking and compiling data on web surfers....if enforced, seems like this might be a way for Nielsen to get free data off Pinecone users(that Nielsen is normally paying people for - to DL their tracking software) or maybe its just an easy out if Pinecone wants to remove a user in the future(?).......i just thought it was strange to see that listed in the new terms...

Important Security Notice:
We have been made aware that third parties may be attempting to use the names and logos of Pinecone Research "mystery shopping" assignments. Essentially, the victim is provided a fake check and advised to cash it, and then use some of the proceeds to test a service (for example, testing a Western Union wire transfer). The victim is advised that he or she may retain the balance from the cashed check as payment, however, the check later bounces.
Please be aware that Pinecone Research has no involvement in these fraudulent transactions. Participating in our surveys is always free of charge, and we never ask our panelists to cash a check for a large amount and then use the proceeds to “test” a service.
