Privacy and Data Protection

Commitment to Privacy and Data Protection

The General Data Protection Directive (“GDPR”), which was decided by the European Union and valid as of 25 May 2018, protects the privacy rights of individuals (for example, stricter restrictions on consent, the right to be forgotten, the amount and type of personal data that can be used, data access and security, etc.). ) has taken another evolutionary step beyond the protections already in place in the European Union and many other countries.

Sinus Research complies with the business ethics rules applicable to all registered market research companies (ICC/ESOMAR International Market Codes, Public Opinion and Social Research and Data Analysis) and the instructions and requirements of all current local regulations, especially when it comes to protecting participants’ information.

Anonymous data and access security

Sinus Research uses anonymization techniques to protect the personal information of its participants as part of its data collection efforts.

Thus, access is restricted to fieldwork teams in operations units on a need-to-know basis only. Sinus Research applies the same policy and care to customer-provided samples, Sinus Research online panelists and offline participants.

Global Privacy and Data Protection Policy

As part of its social responsibility, Sinus Research undertakes to comply with data protection laws, regulations and rules in an international context.

In addition to certain panel applications related to [software] applications, the company provides health, political opinion, etc. for encryption of databases containing special (sensitive) categories of personal data, such asde gerekli önlemleri almaktadır.

Data Suppliers

Sinus Research has procedures for selecting suppliers that process personal data based on the company’s data protection requirements. This means that all suppliers must sign an agreement that contains data protection clauses that are at least as strict as those signed with customers, that no supplier can provide the necessary protection and transfer any personal data outside the EEA without the customer’s consent. In addition, our suppliers cannot subcontract personal data processing services to sub-processors without the approval of Sinus Research.

Data transfers

Sinus Research has taken some contractual measures regarding cross-border data transfers between the company and its suppliers. When data transfer is required to a country known for not having an adequate level of data protection, Sinus Research ensures that the EU Standard Contractual Clauses are applied and appropriate technical and organizational measures are taken to protect personal data. Sinus Research is committed to protecting the personal data of its customers, participants and employees.
