Privacy Policy for Research Participants

MISCO International Limited is committed to protecting the privacy of all information we collect from our research participants in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and the forthcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This policy applies to all personal information that we collect or use in the course of conducting research. This policy covers all research participant data housed at any MISCO International facility or stored on the MISCO International network. Anyone who has access to such information or data must follow this policy. MISCO will endeavor to ensure that the data submitted remains confidential and protected and is used for the purposes set out in this policy.

RESEARCH PARTICIPANT INFORMATION

MISCO collects your personal data such as your name, date of birth, telephone number and e-mail address obtained from your registration form. The personal data collected and held by MISCO is for the purpose of inviting you to participate in research activities.

All responses to our research are completely confidential. We collect data in our studies for research purposes only, and our use of that information will be limited to that purpose. Research participant answers will not be used by any entity as an aid for sales.

Research participation is voluntary and sample members always have the opportunity to decline involvement or to "opt out" of the research after agreeing to participate. We do not collect personal information without research participant consent.

We do not rent, sell or give personal information to any third party for the purpose of directly marketing any products or services. In some cases we may need to share personal information with third parties that provide research services in support of the research project. Any third party that receives personal information is obligated to follow all of the same privacy protection regulations as followed by MISCO International.

At their request, we give research participants access to the personal information we have collected about them. We correct any information that is inaccurate or incomplete, change their consent status, or have their personal information deleted.

Please note that receiving email communications may be a requirement of your participation in our surveys or other market research programs. You can opt out from receiving these emails by unsubscribing from surveys or other market research programs.

Our surveys or other market research programs may contain links to a number of third party websites.

Otherwise, we will retain your personal data for as long as is necessary.

INFORMATION SECURITY

We maintain all necessary physical, electronic and procedural security measures to help safeguard personal information.
