- Offline: We may collect personal data from you offline, such as when you attend one of our events/interviews, during phone calls with recruiters, or when you contact our support/office.
- Information from other sources: In order to improve our ability to provide relevant market research studies, interview offers, and services to you, we may obtain information about you from other sources, such as public databases, joint market research partners, social media platforms, as well as from other third parties.
Why we process and share your data?
We may process and share your personal data with other companies for the purposes of (i) performing our contractual obligations and the obligations set forth by applicable law and regulatory authorities; (ii) providing and administering access to services that you have requested (iii) answering support matters and correcting mistakes; (iv) improving your user experience on the Digital Channels; (v) providing you, as a user of services, with invitations to market research studies and offers of interviews that are personalized and adapted based on data we have about you; (vi) analyzing market trends and future demands.
We only process your personal data if we have your consent for doing so, or a legitimate interest for doing so.
Eedo social media pages
When you use our Digital Channels, you may share information on social media, such as Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter, through an implemented social plug-in (such as a Like button). If you choose to share information via a social plug-in, your browser will transfer the following data to the social medium:
- Date and time of your visit
- The internet address or URL for the address you are temporarily visiting
- Your IP address
- The browser you are using
- The operating system you are using
- The information for which you have used this specific plug-in
With respect to such information, we refer to the terms and conditions for the relevant social medium (we have no influence over the information that the social medium collects through the use of plug-ins). You can block social plug-ins in your browser settings.
In some cases, we may buy or sell assets or businesses. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Eedo may disclose personal information to a third party in the event of any reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer, or other disposition of all or any portion of our business, assets, or stock (including in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceedings).
For what purposes do we use personal data?
To provide you with relevant market research invitations
We use personal data to provide you with more relevant market research invitations, both for online studies as well as interviews over the phone, through online platforms or face to face. Personal data is also processed with the aim of being able to adapt the viewing of content on Digital Channels, to the device you use and provide you with an enhanced user experience.
To prevent, limit, and investigate abuse
We need personal data about user activities and technical data to prevent, limit, and investigate various types of abuse of our Digital Channels, such as the presentation of false profiles, spamming, harassment, attempts to log into another users’ accounts, as well as other behavior which is prohibited by law.
How does Eedo secure personal data?
We have implemented organizational, technical, and administrative measures to protect personal data within our organization, including security controls to prevent unauthorized access to our systems. While we take reasonable steps to secure your personal information, you should be aware that no security procedures or protocols are guaranteed to be 100 percent secure from intrusion or hacking. There is therefore always some risk assumed by sharing personal information online.
