Removing the Consumer Input Software:

For users who have downloaded the Software directly from Compete, you can opt-out of the Compete research panel at any time by removing the Software from your device. Please read the instructions below.

In cases where the Software is integrated into a partner's application (such as a toolbar), you can opt-out of the Compete research panel, either by removing the partner application, or by disabling the collection features of the application if the partner has provided such functionality. If you are not able to quickly and easily opt-out from the panel or data collection, we can and will help you if you ask. If you have any questions regarding removal or opting-out, you should contact us at privacy@compete.com or (888) 744-6028 or (617) 933-5699.
