Kudos Research Privacy Policy

Kudos Research is committed to ensuring that the privacy of visitors to its website is protected. This policy sets out how we collect, use and protect personal data submitted through this website. We may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. You should check this page from time to time to ensure you are happy with any changes. This policy is effective from 01/01/2013. Last revised: 13/04/2018.

By using this website following any privacy policy change, you freely and specifically give us your consent to use, transfer and disclose your personal data in a manner specified in the privacy policy under which it was collected.


The GDPR is coming soon

This legislation will replace current data privacy law, giving more rights to you as an individual and more obligations to organisations holding your personal data.

One of the rights is a right to be informed, which means we have to give you even more information than we do now about the way in which we use, share and store your personal information.

This means that we will be publishing a new privacy notice so you can access this information, along with information about the increased rights you have in relation to the information we hold on you and the legal basis on which we are using it.

This new privacy notice will be published on this website in May 2018.

Through this website, Kudos Research may collect information that can specifically identify you, such as your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address when you voluntarily submit it to us. We require this information to understand your needs and provide you with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons:

  • Internal record keeping.
  • To enhance and improve our products and services.
  • To contact you and/or provide you with general information as well as information about our services from time to time using the contact information which you have provided.
  • To contact you for market research purposes. We may contact you by email, phone, fax or mail. We may use the information to customise the website according to your interests
  • To respond to duly authorised information requests of governmental authorities or where required by law

Controlling your personal information

Please note that in certain situations we may not be able to give individuals access to all or some of their personal data. If we deny an individual's request for access to their personal data, we will advise the individual of the reason for the refusal.
