The COMPANY may also ask TOLUNA to send you gift vouchers or manage your rewards. These third parties will therefore need your identification and contact information.

VII. What are my rights when I give you my data?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) entered into force on 25 May 2018. This regulation aims to harmonise data protection laws across the European Union (EU). If you are an EU citizen, you may exercise the rights laid down in the GDPR and we will do our best to assist the COMPANY in responding to any requests it receives from survey participants.
Regardless of the purpose or legal basis on which your data is processed, you have the right to:
- Access the personal data that the COMPANY may have about you;
- Correct, add to or update your personal data;
- Delete your personal data (‘right to be forgotten')
- Limit or oppose processing of your personal data;
The COMPANY would like to make it clear that in this context, a request to delete your data or to limit or oppose processing of your data results in deregistration from the ‘Listen to your senses' community.
- Transfer your personal data;
You can access or correct your personal data, request for it to be deleted, or end your membership by logging in to your panellist account under ‘my profile'. Just follow the relevant instructions and your data will be updated automatically. Alternatively, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We read all the emails we receive and reply to them individually. In most cases, changes are processed within 2-3 working days, but please allow up to two weeks for your status to be finalised. You may receive emails from us during this time period.
You can also exercise your rights vis-à-vis TOLUNA via the contact form, which can be accessed here.
Please note that in the case of a deregistration request, you will not be able to access and/or benefit from any of the community's services, and you will no longer receive messages from us. In addition, you forfeit any unused rewards balance at the time of deregistration. We also stop using your identification and contact information, except for archiving purposes, and we will process your personal data in accordance with our backup policies. Your identification data will subsequently be destroyed in accordance with our data storage policies, and we will continue to use the necessary security procedures and technologies to protect your personal data.
Lastly, we draw your attention to your right to make a claim to our data protection officer at email@example.com as well as the supervisory authority for data protection: the CNIL.
VIII. What security measures are taken to protect my data?
TOLUNA takes all necessary precautions to ensure the security and privacy of your data and, in particular, to prevent it from being changed, damaged or accessed by an unauthorised person.
IX. Cross-border personal data processing
The transfer of personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA) to TOLUNA's international web hosting and backup services centre whose place of business or headquarters is based in the United States (Toluna USA Inc.), a country that does not have an adequacy decision issued by the European Commission, is governed by a data transfer agreement, which will include (i) the general contractual terms set out in the ‘European Commission Decision of 5 February 2010 (Decision 2010/87/EC)', or (ii) any other mechanism based on legislation concerning privacy or any other regulation concerning personal data processing.
