Our ethics

We work for each of our clients in absolute confidence and to the highest professional standards.

Charity Donations

We often suggest our clients use donations to charity as incentives for research. As a result we have generated over £40,000 of charitable donations to organisations such as British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research UK, Macmillan Cancer Support and Medicins Sans Frontieres.

Professional conduct

We are members of the Market Research Society and European Society for Opinion and Market Research.
We are also registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office. This means we inform the ICO of any lists created and held with personal information.
Our research team abide fully by:
The Data Protection Act 1998
The ICC/ESOMAR International Code on Market and Social Research
The MRS Code of Conduct
This means that, amongst other things, we do not mislead respondents as to the nature of our research. We also ensure all transfers of data occur through our project management system, Basecamp, or through a secure FTP.
