Our service providers are contractually bound to protect the personal data they receive from us and are prohibited from using this personal data for any purpose other than to perform the services requested by OCIM.  We also take steps to ensure adequate protection for any transfer of your personal data in accordance with applicable law. 

3.5 Customer satisfaction surveys

Receiving feedback from our customers is very important to improve the quality of our services. This is the reason why our quality team may send a survey to our customers on a regular basis by email at the end of the provision of our services.

Please see 3.2 for more information regarding the way OCIM processes personal data in the context of mailings.

Given that each satisfaction survey is being linked to a specific service, we ask respondents to fill in their email in the form. In the context of the survey, respondents will also be asked to provide OCIM with feedback.

Such individual feedback is used for the following purposes:
- link the feedback to a specific project;
- give the account manager assigned to the respondent's organization the opportunity to contact the respondent (if and only if the respondent gives his express consent to it); and
- aggregate the individual feedback into an aggregated feedback report.

The individual feedback will only be kept for a period of 6 months after the survey and is accessible only to the quality team and the account manager assigned to the respondent’s organization.

After these 6 months, only aggregated reports containing non-personal data will be kept and used for the following reasons: draw up evolving statistics, share customer experience feedback on our projects for possible audits, prioritize and carry out the necessary actions internally within the framework of the improvement of our services.

The processing or personal data as described under 3.5 is based on the legitimate interests of OCIM (it being understood that, as explained above, respondents will only be contacted in respect of the feedback they have provided if they have explicitly consented to it).

The respondent has the right to object at any time to the processing of his/her personal data for the purpose of performing customer satisfaction surveys and/or to exercise his/her other rights in accordance with section 4 below.

IV How-to control your personal information and exercise your right?

OCIM provides you with the ability to keep your personal information accurate and up-to-date. If at any time you would like OCIM to rectify, erase or restrict the processing of your personal information, or you would like to obtain confirmation whether or not your personal information is processed by OCIM, access your personal information, ask to whom the data is disclosed, exercise your right to data portability or with draw your consent to processing, please contact us at
