Data protection notice for participation in the Global Talent Study 2018
Type, scope and purpose of the survey and use of personal data
If you participate in the Global Talent Study 2018, The Boston Consulting Group and The Network collect various data regarding your education, your job role and your gender, which we will treat strictly confidential at all times. We use this data in aggregated form to create statistics, which won’t allow any inference to individual participants of the survey. At the end of the questionnaire you can agree to participate in a personal interview and/or agree to participate in a raffle, subject to the terms and conditions listed there. For this purpose, you only have to leave you email address. If you leave your email address for a personal interview, we will check whether your profile meets our interview criteria. You can revoke your permission at any time.
If you have questions about the collection, the processing or the use of your personal data or if you wish to correct, lock or delete your personal data or if you want to revoke your permission, you can contact The Boston Consulting Group or The Network free of charge at any time. You have the right to correct wrong data or to have your personal data deleted, if this claim doesn’t contradict any legal retention requirement.
Encryption of your IP address
To prevent multiple participation in the survey, an IP encryption is activated. To enable the IP encryption, your IP address is being captured and is saved on the survey server, but only after automatically encrypting it into a hashtag, which cannot be re-encrypted. Thus, your IP address is at no point available to The Network, The Boston Consulting Group or Easyfeedback. We delete your IP address as soon as the survey is finished or automatically closed.
Cookies are small text files, which are put into your browser if you open the survey. Through these cookies, the survey tool recognizes whether you have already visited the survey and can reassign your previous answers to you (interrupting and restarting the survey). Cookies can also prevent multiple participation in the survey. The cookie will be automatically deleted after 90 days or if the survey is deleted beforehand.
Location of data storage
Your responses and data are stored in accordance with current data protection regulations at the computer center of the Strato AG in Germany.
