Information about your rights as participants in CYMAR research projects
CYMAR respects the personal data of participants in research projects. To this end, it limits the collection of personal data to the minimum required for the execution and the quality controls needed for a research project.
In the overwhelming majority of research projects conducted by CYMAR, the only personal information that the company retains for a short period of time is your name and phone number so that we can contact you to check the quality of our researchers' work. This information is deleted within one month of completing a project.
In specific cases where you have been informed and have given your consent either to CYMAR or to different company with which you cooperate and have authorized them to contact you to record your views (eg a company that systematically provides you with a service such as a car service provider, a telecommunications service provider, a financial institution you cooperate), your personal data is recorded and processed in accordance with the Company's Security, Facilities and Equipment Policy.
The data that we collect is stored and processed within the European Economic Area ("EEA"). In cases where your data will be transferred, stored or processed outside the EEA, you will be informed οφ τηισ in advance of providing any data and your explicit consent will need to be recorded.
All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers and is protected by multiple levels of security. The company has in place a Facilities, Resources and Data Protection Policy to ensure the safety of your data. We limit and control the access to data by our own employees and service providers and we do not subcontract data collection or processing services to external suppliers.
We may not disclose your personal information to any other party without your prior explicit consent.
All the procedures followed and implemented by CYMAR are part of the Quality Control System of the Company. Additionally, the Company has implemented and complies with all provisions of the General Rights Protection Regulation (GDRP), which also afford you the following rights:
Right to information
In cases where your information is recorded and processed, you should be notified about the identity of the company that collects your data and the reasons for the collection. This includes the transfer of your personal data to third parties.
Accuracy of data
Individuals who have given us their consent and we maintain data on them for purposes of communication and participation in qualitative surveys (group discussions) may request to correct or update their personal information at any time, by contacting us. Include your name, address, and e-mail address when you contact us, as this helps us ensure that we only accept changes by the right person. We encourage you to inform us immediately in the event of a change in your personal information.
Individuals who have participated in quantitative projects (interviews) may request to correct or update their personal information within one month of an interview being conducted. After this period, for personal protection purposes, personal data is deleted from the databases and your interview can not be identified. To communicate with us, include your name, address and email address and the topic you were interviewed for, as this helps us ensure that we only accept changes from the right person for the correct project.
Right of access
You have the right to request and receive a copy of your personal information that we maintain in our records
Right to limit the processing of personal data
You may object to the processing of your Personal Data in some cases (especially when we do not need to process data for a contractual or other legal requirement). Note that you will always be able to withdraw your consent.
Right to delete your Personal Data
At any time you can request to delete your data from our records and you revoke your consent to the processing of that data, provided that there is no other legal basis for the processing. This right can not be exercised when the retention of data is necessary for legal purposes or the processing is necessary, inter alia, for purposes of archiving in the public interest, for purposes of scientific or historical research or for statistical purposes.
Right to transfer (portability) of your Personal Data
You have the right to request the transmission of your personal data which is in electronic form from one controller to another, with 'no objection', given that the exercise of this right does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of third parties. This right facilitates your ability to move, copy or transfer personal data easily from one computer environment to another.
