What data are you collecting?
We collect information about you when you register with us. We also collect information when you complete recruitment surveys, provide feedback and participate in competitions. We also collect website usage data using cookies.
We collect all of the information you provide when you fill in our forms including your name, address, age, ages of your children, email address, social media account details and telephone number.
All data collected in connection with your panel membership and your participation in studies and online surveys will be stored and processed centrally in secure cloud services.
When we collect your data via our surveys we use Survey Monkey as our trusted survey system partner and send out emails via Campaign Monitor. We sometimes employ freelancers who help us with our projects.
Such companies and individuals will only have access to the personal data they need to perform these functions, they may not use it for any other purposes and are required to process the data in accordance with data protection laws and regulation applicable in the United Kingdom.
All data we collect is held in accordance with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
How we use that information
We use that information so we can match you to take part in our projects or to contact you about current projects or upcoming projects.
It is necessary to register on our panel in order to take part in our range of projects. Admission to and membership of the panel is free of charge and does not oblige you to take part in any projects, and you can choose to end your membership at any time.
As part of your panel membership, your data is collected and processed so that we can invite you to take part in product tests, surveys, interviews and other forms of market research and innovation projects; statistically evaluate your responses and participation in these market research projects; and carry out market research analysis. The results obtained from all participants in each study are always fully anonymised before being shared with our clients.
You may also be rewarded with incentives in return for taking part in our market research studies. In the process, you will provide us with the data we need to issue your incentives.
We will never pass your personal details onto any third parties. Furthermore, no personal data will be shared with the clients who commission our studies or with any other organisations or freelancers that we may use.
Please note that if we are requested by the police, government, regulatory or other body investigating suspected illegal activities to provide your personal data and/or use details, we are entitled to do so.
