What types of personal information we collect?


HC Parent Corp (containing herspiegel.com, sixsenseinc.com) is a Controller of the personal data you (data subject) provide us. If you are a research or survey respondent, or member of our panel, we will collect personally identifiable information from you. This may include your email address, home or work address, telephone number, and, in some cases where the respondent selects Electronic Funds Transfers as the remuneration means, banking information.


What is our legal basis for using your personal information?


HC Parent Corp will only process your personal information where we have a legal basis to do so. Under EU and UK data protection laws, in almost all cases, the legal basis will fall under contractual necessity. The contractual necessity applies because we need to use your personal information so that we can process any honoraria payment, if selected.


How long will we keep your personal information?


We will keep your information for as long as we need it for the purpose it is being processed for. You can notify us at any time if you no longer wish to have HC Parent Corp retain your personal data.
