Untangld Pty Ltd (“Untangld”) is a strategy and market research company that conducts research on behalf of clients. We use third-party fieldwork suppliers to collect data for us that we analyse to provide insights to clients.
Untangld respects and upholds your rights under the Australian Privacy Principles contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (“Privacy Act”). Untangld also adheres to the Privacy (Market and Social Research) Code 2014 (“Code”). For more information about the Privacy Act, the Australian Privacy Principles and the Code click here.
WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT
The information Untangld collects may include personal information, such as your name, gender, age, occupation, household or personal income and contact details, as well as sensitive information, such as your opinions and feedback in relation to brands, products and services, as well as your political opinion or health information.
If asked to provide your name you have the option of remaining anonymous or using a pseudonym by which to be identified.
However, in certain circumstances, such as where we receive your contact details from a third party or where the research data itself may potentially allow for identification, this may not be practicable.
We may also collect sensitive information from you. Sensitive information will only be collected with your prior consent, and only if it is directly related to, or reasonably necessary for the research we conduct.
HOW WE OBTAIN THE INFORMATION
Untangld will generally collect your personal information directly from you in the course of you participating in our research whether for focus groups or in-depth interviews, over the telephone surveys, face-to-face surveys, surveys on the internet or other forms of research. This information is provided voluntarily and sometimes individuals are paid to provide information about themselves.
For surveys, Untangld will generally collect your personal information using third-party fieldwork suppliers, such as McNair YellowSquares. You will always be informed about the circumstances of this collection.
However, we may also from time to time collect personal information about you from publicly available sources such as the telephone directory, from clients who hold information about people they would like us to conduct research with (for example customers or former customers) and on occasion marketing list providers for research purposes.
On such occasions, Untangld takes appropriate steps to ensure that the information provided to us is done so in accordance with the Australian Privacy Principles.

In this case, your personal information will continue to be protected in accordance with this Policy. If we destroy personal information we will do so by taking reasonable steps and using up-to-date techniques and processes.
SECURITY OF INFORMATION
