_Bricolage is committed to protecting the privacy of our clients and research participants.
It is the intention of this privacy statement to explain to you the data information practices of Bricolage in relation to the information we collect about data subjects. Please read this statement carefully as it sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us.
We treat all information we receive from clients as confidential and do not use the information for any purpose other than to fulfill our obligations to them. We keep client information secure at all times, and prevent the misuse and unauthorized disclosure of it by our employees or any third parties.
_Research Participant Information
In order to provide our services to clients, we may employ the use of client contact lists which would contain personal information such as names, email addresses, phone numbers, and mailing addresses. On studies involving European citizens, client contact lists will only be used in cases where active consent to be contacted for research purposes has been granted by the participant. All responses to our research are completely confidential. We collect data in our studies for research purposes only, and our use of that information will be limited to that purpose. Research participant answers will not be used by any entity as an aid for sales. Research participation is voluntary, and sample members always have the opportunity to decline involvement or to "opt out" of the research after agreeing to participate. In order to provide our services to clients, we may request from research participants their personal information such as names, email address, phone number, or mailing address. In cases of video recorded research, the ability to record facial images could be requested. This collection of personal information from research participants is done solely through the legal basis of consent.
We do not rent, sell or give personal information to any third party for the purpose of directly marketing any products or services. In some cases, we may need to share personal information with third parties that provide research services in support of the research project. Any third party that receives personal information is obligated to follow all of the same privacy protection regulations as followed by Bricolage. At their request, we give research participants access to the personal information we have collected about them. We may charge a fee for this which will not exceed 6.35Euro. We might request you to provide additional information to enable us to identify your personal data and/or to verify your identity. Please send all requests to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will accede to any such valid requests within 40 calendar days of the receipt of a valid request in writing.We correct any information that is inaccurate or incomplete, change their consent status, or have their personal information deleted if we do not have a legitimate reason for retaining same.
_Sharing of Information
We maintain all necessary physical, electronic and procedural security measures to help safeguard client data and personal information. Third parties that provide us with support or services may also receive client data or personal information, and we require them to maintain security measures similar to ours with respect to such information. Nevertheless, the Internet cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us. If any information under our control is compromised, we will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation and, where appropriate, notify those individuals whose information may have been compromised, and also take other steps as necessary in accordance with any applicable laws and regulations.
Bricolage will take reasonable steps to ensure the personal data is accurate, complete, current and relevant, and is used only as described in the Data Retention section below. While we accept responsibility for the management and confidentiality of the personal information collected, please note that we do not always have control over the accuracy of the information provided directly to us, and accept no responsibility for the information accuracy in such cases.
In general, to determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements. We may also process data on behalf of third parties who have engaged us. We keep personal information processed on behalf of third parties for as long as needed to provide services to the third party in question. Notwithstanding anything above to the contrary, we reserve the right to retain personal information for any period required by law or to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. For example, Bricolage does keep a record of names in receipt of cash incentives for a period of up to six years for tax and audit purposes only, as is required of us by law.
