Our aim is to collect and use the minimum personal data needed to rewire the financial markets ensuring they become the most protective force on the planet. We only ever share aggregated responses with our partners, and whilst rewired.earth captures data that relates to an individual, such as gender, age and their opinions, we have implemented measures so that the individual cannot be identified. The anonymity of response is ensured.
Personal data is data that relates to an individual and where the individual to which the data relates can be identified
In instances where individuals explicitly opt in to share personal data (i.e. email addresses) our implementation of a privacy by design approach to data management and storage ensures no personal data flows between us and our partners, and we have no way of linking identifiable personal data to specific survey responses.
As soon as the individual submits their survey, our front-end (the survey that people see), creates two separate outputs. One contains all the survey responses except for the email address; and the other contains the email address, if one is provided.
These two outputs are stored in two separate databases .
We make sure that – even if we wanted to – we could not link the email address to the responses. We do this by ensuring that there are:
No unique individual common references between the two databases (such as a respondent or survey
No other means to join the two, such as a timestamp of when the email address was shared with us.
As a result, organisations we engage with and individuals who complete the survey can rest assured that we have controls in place to manage data privacy risks.
