What Kind of Privacy Practices Apply to my Participation in a Survey?
Background and Scope
This policy applies to the CMA and CMA Impact Inc.
Access to Identifiable Information
Only the following people will have access to identifiable data:
- Specifically trained staff working with the data;
- Contractually-bound, or approved by us researchers or organizations; or
- Third parties who help us administer the survey, provide software tools, or who help us analyze the information
In all other circumstances, no identifiable information that is collected will be shared with third parties at any time unless it is shared in accordance with CMA’s Privacy and Survey Policies, or we clearly disclose to you in advance what identifiable information may be shared. Data collected through this survey may be processed and stored in other countries and the governments, courts or law enforcement or regulatory agencies may be able to obtain disclosure of your information under a lawful order made in that country.
Use of Anonymized Aggregate Data
We may share anonymized aggregate data with others. For example, we may use any or all ideas and comments, in anonymous aggregate form for policy development, for advocacy work and engagement efforts. For statistical accuracy purposes, CMA will not publish anonymized aggregated data where the cohort/group of interest has fewer than 30 respondents. For respondent confidentiality purposes, CMA will not publish aggregate data where the cell size is less than 5, or other number which could result in the disclosure of identifiable personal information.
