What is Personal Data?
Personal data is defined by the General Data Protection Regulation (EU Regulation
2016/679) (the “GDPR”) as ‘any information relating to an identifiable person who can
be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier’.
Personal data is, in simpler terms, any information about you that enables you to be
identified. Personal data covers obvious information such as your name and contact
details, but it also covers less obvious information such as identification numbers,
electronic location data, and other online identifiers.
The personal data that we use is set out in Part 5, below.
What Are My Rights?
Under the GDPR, you have the following rights, which we will always work to

This Privacy Notice should tell you everything you need to know, but you can always
contact us to find out more or to ask any questions using the details in Part 11.
- The right to access the personal data we hold about you. Part 10 will tell you how to do this.
- The right to have your personal data rectified if any of your personal data held by us is inaccurate or incomplete. Please contact us using the details in Part 11 to find out more.

This means that, if you have provided personal data to us directly, we are using it with your consent or for the performance of a contract, and that data is processed using automated means, you can ask us for a copy of that personal data to re-use with another service or business in many cases.
- Rights relating to automated decision-making and profiling. Part 6 explains more about how we use your personal data, including automated decision-making and/or profiling.For more information about our use of your personal data or exercising your rights as outlined above, please contact us using the details provided in Part 11.Further information about your rights can also be obtained from the Information Commissioner’s Office or your local Citizens Advice Bureau.

How Do You Use My Personal Data?
Under the GDPR, we must always have a lawful basis for using personal
data. This may be because the data is necessary for our performance of a
contract with you, because you have consented to our use of your personal
data, or because it is in our legitimate business interests to use it. Your
personal data may be used for one of the following purposes:
- Providing and managing your account.
- Supplying our services to you. Your personal details are required in order for us to enter into a contract with you.
- Personalising and tailoring our services for you.
- Communicating with you. This may include responding to emails or calls from you.
- Supplying you with information by email or post that you have opted-in to (you may unsubscribe or opt-out at any time by using unsubscribe links in any received email or by contacting us using the details in Part 11.
- With your permission and/or where permitted by law, we may also use your personal data for marketing purposes, which may include contacting you by email or text message with information, news, and offers on our services. You will not be sent any unlawful marketing or spam. We will always work to fully protect your rights and comply with our obligations under the GDPR and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003, and you will always have the opportunity to opt-out.
We use the following automated system[s] for carrying out certain kinds of decision-making and profiling. If at any point you wish to query any action that we take on the basis of this or wish to request ‘human intervention’ (i.e. have someone review the action themselves, rather than relying only on the automated method), the GDPR gives you the right to do so. Please contact us to find out more using the details in Part 11.
The following automated decision-making method(s) may be used:
- Survey software screening – Your responses to certain questions may trigger automated profiling data to be calculated and held in a secure database and/or used to terminate the survey or redirect you to another site.
- Survey software quota management – Your responses to certain questions may be aggregated in a secure database, and if you are classified in groups already sufficiently represented in a survey’s sample, the survey may terminate or redirect you to another site.
How Can I Access My Personal Data?
If you want to know what personal data we have about you, you can ask us for details of that personal data and for a copy of it (where any such personal data is held). This is known as a “subject access request”.
All subject access requests should be made in writing and sent to the email or postal addresses shown in Part 11. To make this as easy as possible for you, a Subject Access Request Form is available for you to use. You do not have to use this form, but it is the easiest way to tell us everything we need to know to respond to your request as quickly as possible.
There is not normally any charge for a subject access request. If your request is ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’ (for example, if you make repetitive requests) a fee may be charged to cover our administrative costs in responding. We will respond to your subject access request within 30 days and, in any case, not more than one month of receiving it. Normally, we aim to provide a complete response, including a copy of your personal data within that time. In some cases, however, particularly if your request is more complex, more time may be required up to a maximum of three months from the date we receive your request. You will be kept fully informed of our progress.
