Personal data – including demographic details, financial information, opinions – is collected from those who participate in our surveys. Respondents knowingly participate. Data held is associated with an identifier. This identifier code does not contain any identifying material.
Security of data
All personal data is held securely and confidentially. The survey response data is held along with an identifier as an Excel worksheet or Access database. This is held securely on a PC and backed up on an external hard drive or cloud account. The file may also be held on a cloud file. In all cases, access to the PC, external hard drive or cloud account are password protected.
Length of time the data is held
All survey contact data is held for the duration of its use and no longer. This is usually a period of no more than 6 months. All our surveys give respondents the opportunity to stop being contacted. For ongoing surveys a contact would be marked as "do not contact" so we do not add them to our database at a later date.
Email addresses which have been given by survey respondents who have ‘opted in’ to future surveys are held continuously.
Email addresses of individuals who have asked not to be contacted in future are held continuously, so we can ensure these individuals are never contacted by us again.
Anyone can request for their email address to be removed from our systems, and we will action this request within 30 days.
Sharing personal information with others
No individual or identifiable survey data are shared with any other organisation. Only aggregated statistical data is shared. No personal survey data will be released at any time – including to the client.
Email addresses are only shared when these are collected specifically on behalf of a client organisation, within a survey clearly branded with that organisation’s identity. There will be a specific statement of consent, and the identity of the client will be clearly visible. When data is so collected, the email addresses are passed on to the client organisation as an excel file with no other information. The email addresses so collected are never used by Mirza & Nacey Research Ltd / The Fees Bureau.
Our surveys include a privacy statement at the start of the questionnaire and invites respondents to participate.
