Privacy and Data Usage Policy - MrWeb site and news email services, including DRNO
Note that for the sake of brevity, a separate page is available here if all you are doing is subscribing to Daily Research News emails.
We are committed to the protection of the privacy of both site users and, where appropriate, clients. We do everything we reasonably can to keep your information, as supplied to us, private. Your personal details will generally only be sent to us with specific instructions as to what we should do with it, and we stick closely to what you have specified.
We only pass your personal information on to third parties with your specific permission - this includes contact details, the content of emails sent to us and the personal information in your CV, and any other personal information supplied.
We gather and use statistics about visits to the site in aggregated form only - this includes which pages are visited how many times, which sites visitors are referred from and all the normal statistics to be found in server access logs. This information is used to improve the site, measure the success of new initiatives (and the progress of well established sections) and in our marketing, but it will never be used in such a way what individual users' habits could be identified from the information provided.
Our vacancy notification, news service (DRNO) and other site features require you to give us your email address so that we can send you emails on a regular basis. This is used to supply the service in question and, on occasion only, to inform you about other, similar features of possible interest to market researchers, but only by MrWeb Ltd - we have no 'other companies in the group' to pass your information to.
To unsubscribe from any MrWeb email service, either click on the unsubscribe link and enter the address to be removed if asked, or simply reply to the email (please check your reply is going to an @mrweb.com address), leaving the email you received intact to help us identify what you're getting, and asked to be removed, clearly stating the service you wish to stop receiving if this is not obvious from the copy part of the email on hitting 'reply'. Please allow 2 working days for us to remove you from the list.
If you Send us Your CV
CVs are sent to us for one (or more) of three purposes:
- submission for one or more specific vacancies, as numbered by you
- submission to up to four of our recruitment consultant advertisers - we will choose recruiters appropriate to your specialisms within research - this (manual) selection is made for your benefit, so as to avoid wasted time talking for yourself and advertisers if they are not familiar with your area.
- in order to get our advice, or that of the resident experts running our 'career clinic', in which case we will respond to the specific requests you make to the best of our ability.
We will not use CVs for other purposes, except that 1) we may contact you individually if we learn of something which might be of help in your job search and we remember details from the CV, and 2) your CV will be stored on one standalone PC for use if you give us further instructions, such as sending it for further jobs. The aim of this is to save you time / effort re-sending the CV / completing the form again. CVs will be deleted after two years if no further instructions have been received; or of course any time you request us to do so.
Your CV will not be posted on the Web. We have no online CV database and no intention of introducing one.
To update your CV at any time, simply submit another one using our online form or by attaching a document to an email. You may ask for the previous one to be deleted, or in particular circumstances to be retained, for example if you have different CVs stressing different work experience. You can ask at any time for details of the information we hold on you, and we will take all reasonable measures to comply, as laid down in the Data Protection Act - contact Nick Thomas on firstname.lastname@example.org or call Nick on +44 (0)20 7515 6040.
MrWeb Ltd invites feedback from users at any time, whether in the form of suggestions, criticisms or positive comments. There are various parts of the site where this can be done by means of a form submission. Such feedback will be only be used for marketing or promotional purposes, or disclosed to another party, either:
- with your express permission, or
- if submitted via a form which is clearly intended for such use - for example a bulletin board where the express purpose of completing the form is to put your comment or question online. (Note that as of November 2019 we are not running such a bulletin board!)
