Our web servers also keep log files that record data each time a device accesses
those servers. The log files contain data about the nature of each access, including
originating IP addresses. Note that we do not link this usage data to Survey
Responses or any way that would identify individual users. Details of your visits to
the Attest Service include, but are not limited to, traffic data, location data, weblogs
and other communication data, and the resources that you access.
Device data. We will also gather anonymous data about the device and application
you use to access the Attest service, such as your device model, IP address and
browser type. We may also infer your geographic location based on your IP address.
We gather this data to enhance creation of Surveys by Survey Makers (e.g., allowing
Survey Makers to send Surveys to particular models of mobile devices ? for example:
iPhone 6 users ? to understand those users in particular).
Cookies. We use third party tracking services that employ cookies and page tags
(also known as web beacons) to gather aggregated and anonymised data about
visitors to the Attest Services. This data includes usage and user statistics.

to allow you to participate in interactive features of the Attest Service, when you

marketing purposes. If you do not want us to use your Personal Data in this way, or
to pass your details on to third parties for marketing purposes, please tick the
relevant box situated on the form or page on which we gather your data. You may

To whom do we disclose your information?
We may disclose:
Your information as required or permitted by law, or when we believe that
disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, and/or to comply with a judicial
proceeding, court order, subpoena, or other legal process served on us from a court
of competition jurisdiction. This may include exchanging information with other
companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk
reduction, and may require us to transfer your Personal Data outside of the
European Economic Area (“EEA”).
Your information if there's a change in business ownership or structure. If
ownership of all or substantially all of our business changes, or we undertake a
corporate reorganisation (including a merger or consolidation) or any other action or
transfer between Attest entities, you expressly consent to Attest transferring your
information to the new owner or successor entity so that we can continue providing
the Attest Service. If required, Attest will notify the applicable data protection
agency in each jurisdiction of such a transfer in accordance with the notification
procedures under applicable data protection laws.
Aggregated and non-identifiable information to third parties to improve or promote the Attest Service.
No individuals can reasonably be identified or linked to any part of the information we share with third
parties to improve or promote the Attest Service.
Your information to our service providers. We use service providers who help us to
provide you with the Attest Service. We give relevant persons working for some of
these providers access to limited aspects of your information, but only to the extent
necessary for them to perform their services for us. We also implement reasonable
contractual and technical protections to ensure the confidentiality of your personal
information and data is maintained, used only for the provision of their services to
include payment processors, hosting services, email service providers, and web
traffic analytics tools.
Your email address to your organisation. If the email address under which you've
registered your account belongs to or is controlled by an organisation, we may
disclose that email address to that organisation in order to help it understand who
associated with that organisation uses the Attest Service. (Please do not use a work
email address for the Attest Service unless you are authorised to do so, and are
therefore comfortable with this disclosure.)
If you are a Survey Respondent, we will anonymously disclose the content you provide in
your Survey Responses to Survey Makers. We host Surveys and Survey Responses for Survey
Makers, but Survey Makers determine how to use the content associated with your
anonymous Survey Responses. Anything you choose to disclose in your Survey responses will
be available to them. Again, you never need to provide data you don't want to; simply press

Your control over the use of your Personal Data

account page. This right is subject to some exceptions, such as where giving you
access would have an unreasonable impact on the privacy of other individuals;

profile page on the Attest Service. Deleting your account will cause all Personal Data
in the account to be permanently deleted from your profile within a reasonable time
period, as permitted by law, and will disable your access to the Attest Service.
Survey Results will remain available to Attest, but only on an anonymous basis. We
will respond to any such request, and any appropriate request to access, correct,
update or delete your personal information within the time period specified by law
(if applicable) or without excessive delay. We will promptly fulfil requests to fully
delete Personal Data unless the request is not technically feasible or such data is
required to be retained by law (in which case we will block access to such data, if
required by law).
