If you apply as a volunteer consumer, Sensory Dimensions asks for your explicit consent to hold your personal data, so that we may invite you to participate in research on consumer goods, for example food, drinks, home, personal and healthcare products.

This data includes contact data, and information about your work and household circumstances, and certain aspects relating to your health, such as allergies and dietary requirements.

When we undertake new product tests, we will potentially ask you for further information which allows us to assess your suitability, for example your use and buying habits of these types of products. We will supplement the data we hold with your answers to these questions. Occasionally we may ask for your ethnicity, so that we can ensure that our volunteers are a nationally representative sample.

You may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us.

We will hold your personal data for a period of five years after your last interaction with us.

If you have any queries regarding your data privacy, please contact us via any of the following means:

You have the right to ask us to provide you with your personal data (including in a machine-readable format in some circumstances), the right to have certain data erased or corrected, and conditional rights to restrict us from processing your data, and to object to us processing your data. You have the right to escalate any data privacy complaints to the Information Commissioner’s Office.
