Panel data and privacy statement

The privacy of our panel members is very important to us.

JPR is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected and the following outlines the steps we take for your protection. Your information is stored securely and processed in accordance with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Your Confidentiality

All surveys administered by JPR are carried out in accordance with the codes and guidelines of the Social Research Association. Your information will be used exclusively for the purpose of participating in this panel. By consenting to become a panel member we promise never to mislead you about the nature of the research or the use which will be made of the findings. Members' email addresses and other personal information will be used for the purpose of sending research invitations only. We will not sell or pass on your email address, postal address or telephone number to any third parties.

Any answers you give to any survey run by JPR will remain confidential unless you specifically give your consent to the contrary. No information is collected during any survey without your prior knowledge and consent. Your responses will be used only for statistical tabulations, such as "75% of Jews in the UK make at least one charitable donation per annum" or "60% of Jews in the UK belong to a synagogue." Your individual answers will never be revealed to anyone in a manner that reveals your identity.

JPR complies with data protection legislation. JPR has a strict policy never to sell or share personal information with third parties. Any data collected will not be supplied, shared, or disclosed to any external organisations or individuals, unless you give explicit permission or there is a legal obligation to do so.

Concerning our legal obligations, there may be some cases where we will have to share your personal data, such as if we are required to do so by law or in response to a court order or law enforcement agency. On occasion, we may share your email address with trusted suppliers of survey Incentives in order for panel members to receive prizes and awards. In addition, in exceptional circumstances, where we think someone is at serious risk of being harmed or is in immediate danger, we may contact the police or a local health or relevant safeguarding team to intervene.

Unsubscribing from surveys and the panel

As a JPR panel member, you will receive invitations to take part in our research surveys. If you change your mind and you no longer wish to be a member of the JPR panel, please click on the unsubscribe hyperlink at the bottom of any panel-related email we send you, follow the on-screen instructions and you will no longer receive survey invitations. You can also email us on to ask to unsubscribe.

Your participation is voluntary at all times and we will ask for your consent to: (a) join the panel; and (b) take part in each subsequent research survey. You are entitled at any stage of a survey, or subsequently, to ask that part or all of the record of your interview be destroyed or deleted. Wherever reasonable and practical, we shall carry out such a request.

What information do you hold on me?

To protect your right to see the personal information we hold about you, we provide access to it via email on request. If the information is inaccurate, we will amend it accordingly. If you no longer wish this information to be stored, you can unsubscribe from the panel and all personal data will be automatically deleted from our records.
