Data Protection

The way respondent's data is used and processed

When respondents register with us, we keep your Personal Data indefinitely, or until you unsubscribe. You can unsubscribe at any time by using the unsubscribe link on this website, on any of the emails you receive from us, or by calling, texting or emailing us.


All Data we process is accurate, relevant and is the minimum required to be able to match you with the criteria and quotas we are supplied for research projects. We will never pass on your Personal Data to any third party without your consent. The only time your data is passed onto a Research/Fieldwork company is when you are accepted onto a research project. In this case your data is forwarded to the Research/Fieldwork company on a secure, encrypted transfer system, or by a password encrypted file. The Research/Fieldwork company will then keep your data safely for up to 5 years, for validation purposes.


When accepted onto a project, the Research/Fieldwork company may contact you before the research takes place by phone, text or email, as a pre-checked to confirm that you fit the specific criteria for the project. They may also contact you briefly after the research to follow up on how the research went. The Research/Fieldwork company will only ever contact you about the particular project you have been accepted onto.

All opinions aired during research projects are treated as confidential. When the Research/Fieldwork company passes your answers/views/data onto the end client the information is always anonymised, to ensure that respondents cannot be identified.


None of your personal details, responses, photos or videos will ever be used for promotions, advertising or placed in the public domain; they will ONLY ever be used for market research purposes. If the Research/Fieldwork company or the end client would ever like to use your photos/videos etc. for any promotions or advertising, they would ask for your expressed permission to do so.
