2. Collection and use
The following sections cover the specifics of each of the three groups from which data is collected: website Visitors, Respondents and Users.
2.2 Website Visitors
If you are a Visitor to our website only, and not a Respondent to a survey or a user of our platform, then this section is relevant for you.
By visiting this website, you consent to the collection and use of your Personal Data as described herein. If you do not agree with the terms set out herein, please do not visit this website. If required by applicable law, we will seek your explicit consent to process Personal Data collected on this website or volunteered by you. Kindly note that any consent will be entirely voluntary. However, if you do not grant the requested consent to the processing of your Personal Data, the use of this website may not be possible.
Such Personal Data may comprise your IP address, first and last name, your postal and email address, your telephone number, your job title, data for social networks, your areas of interest, interest in Focus Visual Communication products, and certain information about the company you are working for (company name and address), as well as information as to the type of relationship that exists between Focus Visual Communication and yourself.
Focus Visual Communication gathers data about visits to the website, including numbers of Visitors and visits, Geo-location data, length of time spent on the site, pages clicked on or where Visitors have come.
2.2.1 Purpose of processing personal data
Focus Visual Communication uses the collected data to communicate with Visitors, to customise content for Visitors, to show ads on other websites to Visitors, and to improve its website by analysing how Visitors navigate its website.
2.2.2 Sharing personal data
Focus Visual Communication may also share such information with service vendors or contractors in order to provide a requested service or transaction or in order to analyse the Visitor behaviour on its website.
2.2.4 Links to other sites
Respondents should be aware that in responding to surveys or survey invitations, they could be disclosing information that could make them personally identifiable to Focus Visual Communication Users. The security and privacy protection implemented on Focus Visual Communication’s platform does not cover this type of transfer or disclosure of personal information. Respondents responding to surveys or survey invitations should be aware that they alone are responsible for the content of their responses. For more detailed information concerning the protection of privacy when responding to surveys or survey invitations, Respondents may contact the entity conducting the survey. It is the Users responsibility to ensure that collection and processing of data is done in accordance with applicable law. Focus Visual Communication will not process Personal Data of Respondents for other purposes or by other means than instructed by its Users.
If you wish to inquire about your Personal Data that may have been collected in a Focus Visual Communication survey, we recommend that you contact the entity that created or sent you the survey. As Focus Visual Communication is a Processor, it does not control the Personal Data used or stored in the survey, but processes it on behalf of its User.
In order to provide services to its Users, Focus Visual Communication collects certain types of data from them. Furthermore, Focus Visual Communication’s Users collect information from Respondents when they produce and distribute surveys. This section will describe how these two types of data are collected and used by Focus Visual Communication as well as geographical differences that effect this policy. Data entered or transferred into Focus Visual Communication by Users such as texts, questions, contacts, media files, etc., remains the property of the User and may not be shared with a third party by Focus Visual Communication without express consent from the User.
2.4.2 Collection of User data
During a Users registration and later on Focus Visual Communication platform, they provide information such as name, company name, email, address, telephone, credit-card number and other relevant data. This information is used by Focus Visual Communication to identify the User and provide them with support, services, mailings, sales and marketing actions, billing and to meet contractual obligations.
Focus Visual Communication Users can at any time access and edit, update or delete their contact details by logging in with their username and password to Focus Visual Communication platform. Focus Visual Communication Users may create more Users with different privilege levels within their account. It is the responsibility of the User that creates other User accounts, to choose the level of access each User should have. Once these new Users log into Focus Visual Communication, they meet the definition of User in this policy. Focus Visual Communication will not retain User data longer than is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected or as required by applicable laws or regulations.
2.4.3 Collection of Respondent data
Surveys used for gathering feedback are created by Users, who make them available to relevant businesses, organisations, and individuals. It is the Users responsibility to ensure that collection and processing of data is done in accordance with applicable law. Focus Visual Communication will not process Personal Data for other purposes or by other means than instructed by its Users.
Respondent data includes data from individuals uploaded, transferred or manually entered by a Focus Visual Communication User into their account for the purpose of providing feedback to the User by responding to surveys. Personal Data may include, personal contact information such as name, home address, home telephone or mobile number, email address, information concerning family, lifestyle and social circumstances including age, date of birth, marital status, number of children, employment details, education/qualification, business contact details, gender, religion, race, health detail and other sensitive Personal Data. Answers to questions by Respondents, may also include Personal Data.
The purpose of collecting Personal Data as part of a survey will vary depending on the survey, as set up by Focus Visual Communication Users. As Focus Visual Communication provides surveys to a wide group of customers and businesses, the purpose may vary greatly. For Users in the EEA, or for Users providing surveys to Respondents in the EEA, the User will be the controller, as defined in the Directive and the GDPR. The purpose will consequently be defined by Focus Visual Communication User.
3. Retention and deletion
Focus Visual Communication will not retain data longer than is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected or as required by applicable laws or regulations. For Respondent data, Focus Visual Communication Users have control of the purpose for collecting data, and the duration for which the Personal Data may be kept. For Respondent data, Users with an active account will therefore have the responsibility to delete data when required. When a users account is terminated or expired, all Personal Data collected through the platform will be deleted, as required by applicable law.
4. Acceptance of these Conditions
