Thinking about a new mattress? Me, too! I just took the #BetterBedQuiz.
This website (the “Site”) contains The Better Bed Quizzz (the “Quizzz”), which the Better Sleep Council, a committee of the International Sleep Products Association (“ISPA”), has designed to an online tool to help consumers identify and prioritize their physical and lifestyle needs when it comes to mattress shopping.
The Information We Collect
This Site contains a Quizzz that asks you to answer a series of questions. Your answers are designed to guide you through identifying and prioritizing your likes and dislikes with your current mattress to help you find the right fit when shopping for a new mattress. You may save your answers to the Quizzz on your phone, tablet, computer or other electronic device, and you may print out your answers to the Quizzz. You have the option to share either an electronic or hard copy of your Quizzz answers with a mattress retail sales associate or with any other person, and to share your answers via Facebook, Twitter and other social media. To allow ISPA to improve the user experience on this Site, you also have the option to provide ISPA your email address after you have taken the Quizzz.
The following describes which of the categories of information ISPA stores, whether that information is personally identifiable, and how ISPA will use your personally identifiable information.
Information That Is Not Personally Identifiable
Like many websites, ISPA uses a third party service provider, such as Google Analytics, to collect information about your use of our Site. We track data about traffic to our Site, as well as your visit to and experience on our Site, and your answers to the Quizzz. None of the information collected using such analytics, however, is personally identifiable to you. We use that information for a variety of purposes, including but not limited to improving and enriching our Site structure and content, as well as to compile aggregate data to help ISPA better understand the relative importance of factors that are relevant consumers when shopping for a mattress that meets their needs. ISPA may use and share with third parties aggregated information that does not uniquely identify you.
If you save your answers to the Quizzz on your phone, tablet, computer or other electronic device, print out your answers to the Quizzz, or transmit an electronic copy of your answers to a mattress retail sales associate or any other person, none of those actions will result in ISPA collecting any personally identifiable information from you, or permit ISPA to link to you personally any of the data we have collected using the analytics described above.
Personally Identifiable Information
“Personally identifiable information” refers to information that tells us who you are, such as your email address. ISPA collects and maintains personally identifiable information about you only if you voluntarily submit such information to us. You may always refuse to supply personally identifiable information, and may visit our Site and participate in all aspects of the Quizzz anonymously.
At most, the only personally identifiable information that ISPA will collect from you in connection with the Quizzz is your email address, which you are asked to consider providing after you have completed the Quizzz. If you decide to provide your email address, ISPA will use it exclusively to request feedback that we can use to improve the user experience on this Site. ISPA will not use your email address for any other purpose, and will not sell or transfer your email address to any third party. ISPA will not link your email address to any information we may have collected using the analytics described above.
By choosing at your option to provide ISPA with your email address, you are consenting ISPA’s use of such personally identifiable information as described above.
ISPA gathers no financial information from you.

A comfortable mattress is the foundation of a good night’s sleep – that’s why there are several mattress choices available so you can find the one that meets your needs. If you haven’t shopped for a new mattress recently, expect to find plenty of options. Ask the sales associate at the mattress store of your choice for information on each type.
Side sleeper? Always snooze on your back? Knowing your primary sleep position may help you find a comfier fit with your mattress.
If you’ve been waking up with aches and pains instead of feeling refreshed, it’s time to take a look at your mattress. A quality, supportive mattress provides your body with support while you snooze and helps you get better rest.
A new mattress won’t cure health issues, but it may help ease them. Newer designs, materials and technology have made mattresses better than ever – especially when it comes to supporting your body so you can get better zzzs. However, if you still feel sleepy after getting 7-8 hours of rest, you should see your doctor. You may have a medical condition that is causing sleeping problems and interfering with getting a good night’s sleep.
