We are committed to safeguarding your privacy. This document outlines how England Marketing Ltd, a specialist research agency and a proud member of the Market Research Society, manages your personal data. More information about us can be found on our website.
In our surveys, we may request various types of personal data, such as demographic information (e.g., geography, socio-economic background, ethnicity, disability, and gender). We only collect what is necessary for the research, and we do not seek overly detailed or sensitive information.
In addition to survey data, please note that inbound or outbound calls may be recorded for research, training, or quality purposes. These recordings are used to enhance our services and ensure the highest quality in our interactions with you.
Participating in our surveys is entirely voluntary. You are free to decline or withdraw your participation at any time without any repercussions.
Legal Basis for Data Processing
England Marketing Ltd acts as both the data controller and data processor. We process your data based on your explicit consent to participate in the specific survey you've been identified for. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. Additionally, our data processing complies with the Data Protection Act 2018.
We treat your personal data and responses with utmost confidentiality. While individual-level responses are shared with the commissioning client, we take steps to ensure your anonymity. Data that, when combined, could potentially identify an individual will be carefully anonymized before sharing with the client. Your identity will not be disclosed to the client.
Your personal data will be securely retained for 12 months from the survey's commencement, after which it will be permanently deleted. Anonymized, non-identifiable data will be retained to support research projects, findings, and published reports. Personal data will be stored separately from other data.
You have the right to access your personal data during the retention period. Once your data is destroyed, access will no longer be possible. You can withdraw your consent or object to our data processing at any time. Your personal data will not be shared without your express written consent. If necessary, you can also rectify incorrect or outdated personal data.
If you have concerns about how we handle your personal data, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). You can contact the ICO at https://ico.org.uk/global/contact-us/ or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
