6. Recipients or categories of recipients to whom the data might be disclosed
Generally, no personal data is handed on to the client of our market research projects. Personal data stated in the survey will only be used by Psyma for statistical purposes. The survey outcomes are anonymous and will be processed anonymously.
Personal data of the secondary aims is used by internal special departments only for carrying out the respective secondary aims. Other recipients of personal data can be external agents (e.g. for interview invitation or sending incentives). These agents will be contractually obligated to not pass on the personal data to any third party, to only use the data for the specific purposes, e.g. processing of incentives, and to erase it directly afterwards.
7. Standard data retention periods
Personal data will be erased after the loss of appropriation and according to the statutory deletion deadlines.
In the case of participants in surveys, this is usually the distribution of incentives or the closure of the market research project plus a certain qualifying period (for example, for questions regarding the incentive).
8. Plans to transfer data to third countries
No data transfer of personal data to third countries is planned.
