Are IPVM Employees Under Confidentiality Agreements?

As I was filling out a survey, I found myself wondering if IPVM Employees are under confidentiality agreements. This spun into me wondering if all IPVM employees are able to see who the authors of "Non-Disclosed" posters are through their employee IPVM accounts.

As IPVM grows, and there are more employee contributors who were once (or still are) affiliated with manufacturers or integrators, are there safeguards in place to protect the IPVM consumer who answers surveys, asks questions, or responds to posts? Or by joining and paying did we accept that there can only be some much anonymity?
