Privacy Policy

Last updated: April 28, 2020

This privacy notice only applies to surveys conducted by and forms created by Desautel Hege Communications (DH) that include links to this privacy notice.

This Privacy Policy describes our policies and procedures on the collection, use and disclosure of your information when we’re conducting research. It tells you about your privacy rights and how the law protects you.

We use your personal data to conduct research. By participating in a survey, interview, focus group or other form of research methodology, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

When you participate in our research, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to, your:

  • Email address.
  • First and last name.
  • Phone number.

Use of your personal data

We may use your personal data for the following purposes.

To contact you: by email, telephone calls, SMS or other equivalent forms of electronic communication.

To attend to or manage your requests of us.


With third parties: We may share your information with third-party agents to help us conduct research, in which case we will require those affiliates to honor this Privacy Policy.

Retention of your personal data

DH will retain your personal data only for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. We will retain and use your personal data to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations (for example, if we are required to retain your data to comply with applicable laws), to resolve disputes, and to enforce our legal agreements and policies.

Transfer of your personal data

Your information is processed at DH and in any other places where the parties involved in the processing are located. That means this information may be transferred to — and maintained on — computers located outside your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ than those from your jurisdiction.

Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer.

DH will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy and that no transfer of your personal data will take place to an organization or a country unless there are adequate controls in place including the security of your data and other personal information.

Disclosure of your personal data

Law enforcement

Under certain circumstances, DH may be required to disclose your personal data if required to do so by law or in response to valid requests by public authorities (e.g., a court or a government agency).

Other legal requirements

DH may disclose your personal data in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to:

  • Comply with a legal obligation.
  • Protect and defend the rights or property of DH.
  • Protect the personal safety of research respondents.
  • Protect against legal liability.

Security of your personal data

The security of your personal data is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may occasionally update this privacy notice to reflect changes in business or to comply with applicable laws and regulations. When we make such an update, we will revise the “last updated” date at the top of this privacy notice. If there are material changes to this privacy notice concerning how we will handle your personal information, we will notify you either by prominently posting a notice of such changes before they take effect or by directly sending you a notification, when possible.
