  1. Data Subject Rights and Requests

Instructions for submitting requests for the handling of your PII (Data Research Subjects and Sites visitors).  There are many laws and regulations protecting and enabling individuals’ privacy rights in effect around the world which give individuals rights regarding their personal data such as the ability to request access, erasure, and restriction of processing. While laws may define personal data differently, this is generally any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. If an organization holds and/or processes your personal data, you may request that the organization take an action on your data as allowed by the relevant law. We refer to this request as a Data Subject Request or DSR.

When making a DSR it is important to understand that most laws require you to make the request directly to the organization that has primary control over your data; referred to as the Data Controller. While HubUX does process PII, we are typically acting as a data processor; collecting and processing your data on behalf of our Customers or Clients who are the data controller.  Further, most laws require that HubUX (as a data processor) must not take action on PII received directly from Data Research Subject until the data controller has authenticated the request and given HubUX direction on what action to take. For this reason, we strongly recommend that you contact the data controller directly for the fastest response to your request.

If HubUX is the data controller, such as when we are sending you marketing related information or when HubUX is conducting direct recruitment future market research not conducted on behalf of a Customer or Sponsor, you may make the request by mail or email at the addresses noted below.

Information to provide us with when we are the data controller and you are making a data subject request:

 

  • Attach or forward the original email you received, e.g., the emailed invitation to participate, associated with the market research project(s) 

 

If you do not have the original email, then please provide the following:

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Email address (if different than that used to send request)
  • Research Topic (if known)
  • Date(s) of event or research participation
  • The action you would like us to take regarding your information

We will respond to your request within the timeframe allowed under the applicable law.

 

Please note that in cases where we are not the data controller and you provide the same information listed above, we will:

  • Attempt to verify your request and identify the data controller (this may require we contact you for additional information). 
  • If we are able to identify the data controller, we will inform the data controller of your request so that they may communicate with you directly.

 

Please communicate your request to us at:
