Introduction to Panelabs Privacy Policy

Panelabs.com is committed to full transparency in the processing of its users' personal information and to full protection of their privacy.

Our Privacy Policy, which is available on all our panel websites and online questionnaires, is intended to present to all of our users – members of our online panel (panellists) and non-member users – all the data we collect about them from these websites and questionnaires in accordance with the EU regulation 2016/679, "General Data Protection Regulation" (GDPR) of April 27th, 2016.

What is personal data?

Current regulations specify that personal data (PII, or "personally identifiable information") is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. In other words, a piece of data – whatever its nature – becomes a PII when a link can be made between this data and an individual (identified or identifiable).

There are two types of PII:

There are many "nominative" details allowing an individual to be identified. Other than first and last name, the main PII are website usernames, email addresses, phone numbers or IP addresses. Sometimes, it may be a combination of several pieces of information that makes them "nominative" and hence permit identification, as for example date of birth (DD/MM/YYYY) combined with post code of residence.

Moreover, data collected from professionals (e.g. customers, prospects, suppliers, partners, etc.) are also considered PII for the purposes of GDPR if they relate to a physical person (an individual) and not to a legal person (a company).

In summary, only information that is completely anonymized and cannot be linked to an identified or identifiable individual – even indirectly from a username – cannot be considered PII.
