Accessing and controlling your information

If you:

  • object to profiling, including profiling for marketing purposes;
  • believe any of your personal information that we hold is inaccurate, incomplete or it is not necessary to hold it; or
  • want to delete your personal information from our records,

you can contact us using one of the channels listed in the ‘Contact Us’ section. We will use reasonable efforts to resolve your request within 30 days.,

We will provide you with our reasons if we refuse your request and, if you disagree, you are entitled to ask us to make a note of the request with your information.

You may also request that your personal information be restricted from processing where one of the following applies:

  • we are verifying the accuracy of personal information , which you believe to be inaccurate;
  • the processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of personal information;
  • we no longer require the personal information but you require it for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; and
  • you have objected to processing and we are verifying whether there are legitimate grounds to refuse the objection

Disclosure to third parties

We will not sell, trade, give or rent any information to a third party unless:

  • you have expressly consented;
  • such disclosure is permitted by the Terms of Service or this Privacy Policy; or
  • required to do so by law

When we provide information to third parties, profile information and activity responses are only disclosed to businesses in an aggregate and de-identified format. We never provide any personally identifiable Information about you to a business, unless you expressly grant us permission to do so. This permission will (unless otherwise indicated) generally be required on a case-by-case basis.

Accessing and controlling your information

1. Banking details

We only disclose your banking details to our bank for the purpose of actioning your reward requests. This disclosure occurs in an extremely secure and protected online facility.

2. Overseas staff handling your data

The response data for some activities may be stored and/or analysed and aggregated by staff residing in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Greece and India. Our staff, including contractors, are required to maintain the same privacy and data protection standards as required under the General Data Protection Regulation.

3. Overseas third parties

Some activities may originate from businesses based outside of your country of residence and accordingly, you agree to allow your activity response data to be provided to these businesses. When this happens, we may need to use third party hosting facilities located outside of your country of residence to ensure your information is constantly accessible and backed up in secure data storage facilities. We will ensure all third party hosting providers used are not permitted access to your information.

4. Data matching

We may share your information with third parties to determine if these parties already hold information about you. We do this for the following purposes:

  • to seek your consent to add the information held by third parties to your PDI Opinion account; and
  • to determine if you qualify for an activity (for example for businesses who want to deploy a survey to individuals already on their database)

If the third party does not hold information about you, we ensure that the information we shared with them is destroyed.

How do we use the information we collect?

We are committed to providing a secure online environment to use PDI Opinion and have invested considerable resources to protect your information from loss, misuse, corruption and unauthorized access. More precisely, we have invested in:

  • A secure server software (SSL) technology to encrypt the transfer of all personally identifiable information
  • Firewalls that protect against unauthorized access of all of the data we collect and store

Due to the nature of the internet, it’s possible that information stored on our servers and data transmitted online can sometimes be accessed by unauthorized third parties. While we make significant investments to ensure that this risk is minimized, we cannot guarantee the information you provided us will never be compromised. By accepting this Privacy Policy, you acknowledge and accept these risks.

Closing your PDI Opinion account

Using PDI Opinion and maintaining an account is completely opt-in and you may close your PDI Opinion account at any time. You’re always able to dissociate your account from any application or website you’ve previously linked to your personal account. Upon dissociating your account, we’ll provide you the option of having all associated data deleted from our records
