This privacy policy explains what personal data we collect about individuals, how and why we use it, whom we disclose it to, and how we protect your privacy.

  • sets out how you interact with us and the types of personal data that we collect 

  • explains the reasons why we use the data we collect

  • explains when and why we will share personal data with third party organisations; and

  • explains the rights and choices you have when it comes to your personal data

We offer a range of services, so we want you to be clear about what this Policy covers. This Policy applies to you if you use our services (referred to in this Policy as “our Services”).

2. Personal data we collect about you
When using the term “personal data” in our Policy, we mean information that relates to you and
allows us to identify you, either directly or in combination with other information that we may hold. Your personal data may include for example your name, your contact details & date of birth,


3. Why we process your data
We process your data in order to produce more representative insights to UK and international
research, and subsequently help our clients adequately represent ethnic minority interests and offer products and services to you which are catered to your interests.

Profiling
We perform profiling of the personal data you provide us due to the nature of our processing
activities, where we use special category data to evaluate and ascertain certain aspects about yourselves, which is then made anonymous. The profiling is used to provide insights to our clients to help inform them of the philosophical and behavioural sensibilities of a certain demographic. The results of these insights are subsequently shared with our clients as per our contractual obligations with them.


4. Categories of data we collect

General data
This is information about you which is defined under Article 6(1) of the GDPR. For the purpose of
conducting our surveys we gather the following general information from you:

  • Your name;

  • Date of birth;

  • Address;

  • Gender;

  • Level of educational attainment;

  • Occupation;

  • Marital status; and

  • Number of dependents.


Special categories of data
This is special information that data protection law says is more sensitive (sometimes referred to as sensitive personal data) and it needs more protection. For CurbSights, we gather and process the following information about you for the purpose of our insights:

  • Your racial or ethnic origin;

  • Your religious beliefs; and

  • Your sexual orientation.

 

We can and will only process this information when you have given explicit consent for us to do so.
 

5. Whom we share your personal data with
The nature of our work determines that we carry out insights work on behalf of a number of
organisations to ascertain certain philosophical beliefs and attitudes of certain demographics.
Consequently, we will frequently share the results of surveys we conduct where we process your
personal data. At no time will we share the data we have collected from you with our clients. If at any time we need to share any data with third-party organisations we will not do so without your explicit consent.

6. How long we use personal data for

We will not keep your personal data for longer than we need to, and will only use your personal data for the purposes set out in this Policy. We will always keep your personal data in accordance with legal and regulatory requirements.


Your personal information is kept for as long as you decide to continue answering surveys, polls and quizzes with us - which details to us that your account is active.
 

Once you opt-out, we will delete your profile information immediately from our systems.
In relation to your responses to surveys which our Clients have access to:
(a) We will delete your avatar/image (if applicable) as soon as possible and in any event within 30 days; and
(b) After your account is deleted, your answers to surveys are retained by us in an anonymous form.

 

7. How we protect your personal data
We know how important it is to protect and manage your personal data. This section sets out some of the measures we have in place:
We apply physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection,
storage and disclosure of personal data;
