Collection and use of Personal Information
Let’s start with some definitions to make sure that we fully understand each other.
“Any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’)”.
“An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.”
“The natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.”
“A natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller. Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.”
These definitions can also be found in article 4 of the European GDPR
There are two ways to guarantee the protection of Personal Information collected through our Service. On the one hand there is the data that our customers collect from respondents via questionnaires created with our Service: data collected from respondents. On the other hand there is the data that we collect from our customers: data collected for customer management.
