Here’s how we use your personal data:
NovimedGroup LTD undertakes all kinds of qualitative and quantitative market research activities in the healthcare sector. We do not have access to your medical or health records, nor do we recruit for, nor directly conduct, clinical trials. We do not sell our database of personal information to others for promotional activities nor for direct marketing. We only publish survey information or data, or make it available to clients who commission research, reports or other information from us, but only in an aggregated, anonymous and non-personal form.
We only collect data directly from individuals. We do not track, combine data sets, nor infer by using algorithms to analyze sets of data.
NovimedGroup will not share your personal data with any third party without your consent. If a research activity requires your personal data to be shared with a third party, for example, in the case of a qualitative research activity, we will seek your consent. Demographics or postcode data will only be used for statistical analysis, and only for market research purposes, never for marketing or promotional activities.
NovimedGroup will retain your personal data no longer than necessary to fulfill the purpose for which we collected it, including to satisfy any pharmacovigilance requirements as far as adverse events reporting is required.
To achieve our objectives, our staff will need to store, process, reproduce, collate, adapt, use, analyze and modify the personal information and data you submit to us and take any other steps (with personal information and data that remains identifiable) to do the following:

4.2 To carry out profiling statistical analysis, market research and testing (whether or not for the purposes set out in the previous paragraph).
4.3 To meet the specific requirements of any other activity we carry out from time to time.
4.4 To retain that personal information and data on our database for use in relation to future activities of the type described in the first paragraph of this section.
4.5 To put that personal information and data into non-personal form for us to make available to others or to publish or disseminate in any form.
4.6 We will also need to store your personal information and data in a personalized form to do the following (by email to the email address or by mail to the mailing address that you have registered with us from time to time):

6. RESPONDENT'S RIGHTS
You have the right to access, review, correct, restrict or delete your personal data. In addition, you also have:
6.1 The right to not be contacted again
Under GDPR regulations being enforced after May 2018, if you exercise your right not to be contacted for the purpose of market research, you are exercising your right to restrict processing. When processing is restricted, NovimedGroup is permitted to store the personal data, but not to further process it.
6.2 The right to be forgotten (erasure)
Under new GDPR regulations being enforced after May 2018, you will have the right to request the deletion or removal of personal data where there is no compelling reason for its continued processing. If you ask for your personal data to be deleted and for you to not be contacted again, the conflict between the two requests should be pointed out and the consent to hold the personal data for the purpose of making sure the individual is not contacted for market research should be requested.
6.3 The Rights of Access of the Data Subject (SAR)
Under new GDPR guidelines being enforced after May 2018, all participants will have the right to get confirmation of all information NovimedGroup has about them, access to this information and any other supplementary information within 30 days from request.

NovimedGroup has put in place technical, physical and administrative measures to protect your personal data and the information we collect.
8.1 We employ security measures to protect your personal information and data from access by unauthorized persons and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage.
We process data and store it on servers managed by our hosting provider. Those servers are located in the EU and the US.

This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence, especially if you share a computer with someone else, or are using a computer in a public place like a library or internet cafe.
