Members' personal data is hosted by Bilendi Technology (RCS Paris 417 689 221), a subsidiary of the Company's parent company, which implements appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of the Members' personal data.
The Company commits itself to implement these security measures but it must be noted that no internet service can currently offer its users absolute guarantee in this area. The Company cannot be held responsible for the protection of data flowing from the computer stations belonging to the users to the Website or the Mobile Application.

Your personal data may be transmitted to the following people:
- Employees of the Company or its corporate affiliates who need to access the personal data;

Your personal data may be transmitted to a Merchant Partner if You registered to the Programme through this particular Merchant Partner but only if You ticked the box on that website, authorising Us to transmit Your personal data.

Profiling also allows Us to limit the number of emails We send You and to improve your user experience.

As part of the Panels Service, We may use Your personal data to select the most relevant and appropriate surveys of Our Research Partners and to send to You invitations to respond to such Surveys.
If and only when You join the Maximail Service, You authorise Us to use Your personal data in order that You may be able to earn Points by Us sending You emails containing offerings of goods and services from Our Affiliate Partners that may be of interest to You.

For complete information on the processing of Your personal data by Our Partners when supplied by You on the Partner's website, We recommend that You consult their own privacy policies that will be available on their websites.

- in countries recognised by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of protection for personal data;
- or in third countries not recognised as providing an adequate level of protection for personal data, such as Mauritius. In such cases, We put in place appropriate safeguards to ensure the protection of Your personal data, including by concluding agreements with Our service providers incorporating standard clauses adopted by the European Commission. You can request a copy of the contract terms by emailing Your request to email@example.com.
Your responses to surveys
The surveys that You are invited to respond to as part of the Panels Service are the responsibility of Our Research Partners and the Company is not responsible for the processing of personal data that Your responses may contain.
Our Research Partners aim to process the responses of Our Members in an aggregated manner for statistical analysis purposes. We do not therefore send them Your names, email addresses, phone numbers or any other data personal about You. The Research Partner must not collect any of Your personal data unless You have given Your explicit agreement to collection of Your personal data as part of the specific survey that You are responding to.
The Research Partners may be required however, at the time You answer the questionnaire or survey, to collect Your IP address (which can constitute personal data) or other personal data. In this case We require Our Research Partners to ask for Your prior consent by clearly explaining the nature of the personal data being collected.
To protect the confidentiality and integrity of the projects of Our Research Partners, You agree not to disclose information contained in the surveys.
