General statement

Protecting and respecting the privacy rights of the employees and parties with whom we do business, such as customers, suppliers and contractors, is critical to our success. All Kantar employees follow applicable law and policies regarding the responsible use of consumer, client, employee and others’ personal information and take care to protect such sensitive data from inappropriate or unauthorized use or disclosure.

  • Ask about and comply with all of the following as they apply to personal data: (i) applicable laws and regulations of locations from which the personal data is collected and in which it is processed or used; (ii) your internal and customer-facing privacy policies; and (iii) any applicable contractual obligations.
  • Be aware of personal data that is subject to specific laws, such as customer financial information, cable subscriber personally identifiable information and customer proprietary network information ("CPNI"), and consult with the Kantar lawyer if they have any questions.
  • Collect, process and use personal data for legitimate business purposes only.
  • Use "anonymous" data (names and other personal information removed and not identifiable) or "aggregated" data (summarized so as not to be identifiable to an individual) instead of personal data where appropriate or required.
  • Limit access to personal data to individuals who need it for a legitimate business purpose, and, if third parties are involved, have a written confidentiality agreement in place reviewed by a Kantar lawyer.
  • Use care to prevent unauthorized access in processing of personal data or accidental loss or destruction of personal data.
  • Consult with Kantar legal counsel before establishing or updating any system, process or procedure to collect, use, disclose or transmit individual consumer information, medical or financial records, or other sensitive personal information.
  • If an employee learns that personal data has been used in violation of this policy, or if an employee learns that the security of any system or device containing personal data has been compromised, immediately notify the primary Kantar contact, supervisor or a Kantar lawyer.
