Effective Date: February 9, 2017
- Jibunu collects data on behalf of our Clients.
- Jibunu does not sell or rent your data. Jibunu will only share data with third parties when absolutely necessary to complete our obligations for the research project. Third parties are under the same obligations of protecting your data and not using data for any other purpose than the initial intent of the research project.
- Jibunu collects data you actively provide through the research tool and data you passively provide while using the tool such as cookies and IP address.
- All data is collected and reported securely via https (the secure version of HTTP). Access to data is protected by an authentication process. Any information that is transmitted or backed up is encrypted and all connections to the data are encrypted.
- You can opt out of the research project at any time and you can update your personal information at any time by emailing email@example.com.
Jibunu programs research tools such as online surveys and interview tools for market researchers. The data gathered from these tools is collected on behalf of our clients. Jibunu is committed to protecting the privacy of all information gathered, especially any and all personal information of research participants using these tools. Jibunu is also committed to protecting the personal information of any person using Jibunu’s website and reporting tools. This policy applies to all client and respondent personal information that we collect or use in the course of conducting our business.
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 those clients. We keep client information secure at all times, and have strict policies against the use and disclosure of it by our employees or any third parties.
We collect data on behalf of our research clients for research purposes only, and our use of that information will be limited to that purpose.
Jibunu will not rent, sell or share any information to any third party for the purpose of directly marketing any products or services. In some cases we may need to share information gathered with third parties that provide research services in support of the research project. An example of this may include things like having a translator translate open end comments into English. Any third party that receives personal information is obligated to follow all of the same privacy protection regulations as followed by Jibunu and the research company.
Information is typically used and analyzed in aggregate, meaning that the data is combined together and analyzed as a whole to look for trends, impact, and general preferences.
Under certain circumstances permitted or required by law (for example, in connection with law enforcement investigations), we may be required to disclose client data or personal information without giving notice.
Personal information may be collected via two methods. The first method is actively through questions in the survey or research tool. The information gathered will depend on the needs of the researcher and research project. Information collected may include items such as your name, phone number, address, gender, ethnicity, income or other demographic data. Depending on the nature of the research these questions may also include items related to your health, lifestyle, personal preferences or other items.
The second method is a passive collection that happens automatically through the system tools. Information gathered in this manner will include items regarding the device being used to access the online tools such as cookies, IP address, browser, browser version, operating system (Mac/PC/Windows), and referring pages.
When collecting information on children under the age of 13, the research company is responsible for requesting consent from the parent or guardian of the child. This is usually, but not always, handled through question(s) in the survey. Jibunu will not actively request or collect information on or from a child under the age of 13 without consent.
As a research participant you have the right to opt out of participating in any survey at any time. You can also opt out of receiving email notifications from the sender of the email.
If Jibunu deployed the email notification on behalf of the researcher, you may choose to opt out of email notifications by clicking on the opt out link in the email. If you do this, Jibunu will add you to the opt out list and you will not receive any further communication from Jibunu for that study. This will not opt you out of all email notifications from that researcher or sample provider, or from Jibunu on behalf of other researchers. In order to opt out of all notifications from those companies, you must contact each company directly.
You have the right to remove or change any of your personal information. To make changes to any personal information that Jibunu has collected, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will assist you to the best of our ability as quickly as possible. In most cases, Jibunu only associates data with a unique identifier without any other access or link to other personal information that the researcher may have. In such cases, we will send your request to the researcher and or sample provider.
We maintain all necessary physical, electronic and procedural security measures to help safeguard data and personal information. Any information that is transmitted or backed up is encrypted and all connections to the data are encrypted. In addition, any interactions with the data require an authentication to gain access. Third parties that provide us with support or services are required to similarly protect personal information from unauthorized access.
Data is kept for at least three years, or upon the agreed upon destruction date with the client. After that time, all data will be slated for destruction. Any data backups stored by Jibunu are encrypted prior to storage. Jibunu’s clients may have different policies for how they retain data. Please refer to the researcher for more information on their policy.
