PART I: PERSONAL DATA PROCESSED ON BEHALF OF SATMETRIX CLIENTS
As a general description of our data processing services, Satmetrix collects (and analyzes) survey responses from our clients’ customers who consent to be contacted or who have pre-existing relationships with the Satmetrix client for which Satmetrix is conducting a survey. As described in this Part I, Satmetrix does not own the Personal Data that we process.
1. SATMETRIX IS A DATA PROCESSOR
Satmetrix processes, on behalf of its clients (Satmetrix’s “Clients”), Personal Data that has been collected by or on behalf of those Clients. “Personal Data” means information relating to an identified or identifiable person. Under the United States/European Union Data Protection Safe Harbor Arrangement (the “Safe Harbor”), Satmetrix acts as a Data Processor and each Satmetrix Client acts as a Data Controller. For the purposes of the Safe Harbor and this Privacy Statement: a “Data Processor” is an entity that processes Personal Data on behalf of a Data Controller; a “Data Controller” is an entity that determines the purposes for which Personal Data are processed. To “process” Personal Data means to carry out an operation or set of operations on such Personal Data, such as collecting, recording, storing, disclosing, or organizing it. The “Data Subject” means the person to whom a certain set of Personal Data relate; for example, the person who responds to a survey.

Satmetrix provides research services to its Clients in which Satmetrix analyzes a Client’s customer performance data in comparison with that of other companies in the same industry as the Client (”Normative Research”). However, Satmetrix does not process any Personal Data in performing Normative Research: (a) Satmetrix uses only non-Personal Data (i.e., data that includes no personally identifiable information or unique identifiers that could later be used to refer to the personally identifiable information to which the data was once associated) in performing this Normative Research, and (b) Satmetrix discloses only non-Personal Data in aggregate form (”Normative Data”) to its Clients who have requested Normative Research.

1. SECURITY MEASURES
Satmetrix uses industry-standard security measures to protect the integrity and confidentiality of Business Contact Data as well as Personal Data it processes on behalf of Clients, including, in appropriate circumstances, the use of firewalls, restricted access, and encrypted transmissions. Satmetrix limits access to Business Contact Data or Personal Data to those persons in Satmetrix’s organization who have a business need to process such Business Contact Data or Personal Data. However, no company, including Satmetrix, can fully eliminate the security risks associated with such Business Contact Data or Personal Data. The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter information (such username & password) on our login page, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personally identiable information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however.
