Survey privacy & cookies
Our Privacy & Cookie Statement, as outlined below, was updated in October 2022 following the introduction of the new European data protection law – ‘European General Data Protection Regulation’ (GDPR) – on 25 May 2018.
Bowen Craggs respects the privacy of each person who takes part in our visitor research surveys.
We would like to inform you of the type of data collected by Bowen Craggs and how they are used.
Data are collected, processed and used in conformity with the data protection regulations of the country in which the responsible data processing department is located.
We take any action required to ensure compliance.
2. Collection, use and processing of personal data
We collect data relating to a specific person for processing and usage purposes only, if you voluntarily decide to enter the data or expressly give your consent thereto.
When you agree to take part in visitor research that is managed by Bowen Craggs on behalf of its clients we will use the software known as Survey Monkey to present the survey and gather your responses.
When participating in the survey data automatically collected by Survey Monkey are:
The version of your browser software, the operating system of the computer used to access the visitor survey and the website you were using when you agreed to participate in the survey. The IP address of your computer is used during the survey but is not stored after the survey is complete.
None of this information is collected if you do not agree to participate in the survey.
In addition, you will be asked to answer survey questions including: your role, your reason for visiting the website, satisfaction feedback in the form of ratings, and general feedback in the form of free text comments.
Your provision of these data is voluntary.
We will not ask for personal data but if you voluntarily supply us with personal data, we shall not use, process or transfer these data except for the purpose of visitor research.
Bowen Craggs does not conduct any additional web tracking whilst you are answering the visitor research survey in Survey Monkey.
Any changes to this Privacy Statement will be published on this page.
This enables you to inform yourself at any time about which data we are storing and how we collect and use such data.
Bowen Craggs will store your personal data safely and, therefore, take reasonable precautionary measures to protect your data against loss, abuse or changes.
On discovery we will permanently delete phone numbers, email addresses and other personal data if they are submitted as part of a survey.
Survey Monkey (who have access to your data in order to provide services to Bowen Craggs) are contractually obliged to keep such information in confidence and may not use these data for any other purpose.
4. Personal Data of Children
Bowen Craggs does not wish to collect data on children below the age of 14 years.
Should parents or other legal guardians discover that the children under their supervision have made personal data available to Bowen Craggs, we request that they contact us at the address below (see 6. below).
