Information by Design Ltd (IbyD) takes your privacy seriously and the purpose of this policy is to explain how we collect and use your personal information and how we comply with data protection law. IbyD is registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (Registration number: Z6556929).
In May 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force and the UK Data Protection Act 2018 was passed. In line with these changes, IbyD has updated this policy.
DATA COLLATION AND DATA PROTECTION
The information that you provide us will be used purely for the purpose of the associated research and will be held in accordance with the GDPR and UK Data Protection Act 2018. Any details you supply will only be used for the purposes you have consented to, and it will not be sold, loaned or given away to any other third party, unless we are obliged by law to disclose it.
PERSONAL AND SENSITIVE DATA
During the course of collecting data, we are likely to collect information that is personal to you, such as your name and address, telephone number, or email address. We will also collect demographics, which are about your characteristics, such as your age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, physical and mental health or mental wellbeing. We may also ask about political beliefs or trade union membership. Please be assured that we will only use this data for the purposes that will have been explained to you at the outset of the research. We will not pass that information onto third parties, but may, with your consent, pass it to the client who commissioned us to do the research. We will normally give you a written leaflet if we speak to you directly, which explains our policy and procedures.
SECURITY AND SAFE STORAGE
The security of your personal information is very important to us and we take this matter very seriously. We’ll use appropriate procedures and security features to process and protect your information. We have in place a robust framework to ensure the security of your information.
