Privacy and Data Protection Statement
- 3.1. Some of the products available on this website, including the Resilience Quotient Inventory (RQi), require input of personal data by the user. Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable living person (as defined in Art. 4 GDPR). To maintain the highest levels of security we enforce strict security and privacy policies and we adhere to all relevant legal requirements related to Data Protection and data processing in the UK and EU, including the General Data Projection Regulation (GDPR). Our information security and data protection policies and procedures are based on the Privacy by Design principle as laid out by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) (https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-data-protection/privacy-by-design/). This ensures that data protection is embedded in everything we do.
- 3.2. Data security and compliance with data protection legislation is the responsibility of the Information Officer at Kirros ([email protected]).
- 3.3. To comply with data protection legislation, Kirros endeavours to ensure that all personal data stored in this website is accurate, securely stored, kept up to date (where necessary), not held for longer than necessary, and deleted after stated periods.
- 3.4. One of the products available on this website is the Resilience Quotient Inventory (RQi). To produce an RQi Report, users log in to their personal secure account and complete an RQi questionnaire. This involves input of certain personal data, including name, email address, gender, age, country and region of residence, employer name, number of days of sickness absence and responses to a series of attitudinal and behaviour-related questions relating to stress, coping strategies, and wellbeing. The data is then processed to produce their RQi Report which contains scores displayed graphically. To comply with the data protection legislation, an individual is required to give his or her explicit permission that his or her personal data can be processed fairly and lawfully. This permission is requested in the form of a mandatory, opt-in consent form which users must tick before proceeding to the questionnaire. Users have the option to withdraw their consent at any point during or after completion of the RQi questionnaire by sending an email to [email protected]. Following receipt of a request, we will delete all personal data within two working days.
- 3.5. Some users who receive an RQi Report participate in confidential one-to-one coaching with a qualified RQi Practitioner who is working either as: (1) an associate of Kirros, (2) an independent consultant or (3) an employee of a third-party organisation. All RQi Practitioners complete appropriate training and are bound by terms and conditions relating to client confidentiality, privacy and data security. These terms and conditions are enforced by Kirros. RQi Practitioners have their own secure account which is linked to a unique ‘organisation’. Organisations are logically segregated by account-based access rules which means RQi Practitioners only have access to information relating to users in their own organisation.
- 3.6. Certain data collected by Kirros is used for research purposes; thereby allowing Kirros to make improvements in its RQi Report and resilience training programmes. Kirros only uses collated, anonymised data in this research, so no individual is ever identified, and personal data remains private. Permission to use data for research purposes is requested in the form of an opt-in online consent form which users see before any personal data is entered.
- 3.7. Personal data (i.e. name and email address) in the RQi questionnaire is deleted after two years.
- 3.8. Kirros does not share personal information held on the website with any other individuals or organisations for any other reason apart from those described above.
- 3.9. Users have the right to complain to the ICO if they believe there is a problem with the way that Kirros is handling their data. The ICO can be contacted on the following number: 0303 123 1113.
