Access to the Fair Data program is included in Company Partnership

Companies that achieve certification can display the Fair Data mark to signal to the public best practice handling, usage and storage of customer information. Fair Data is an international standard that for the first time establishes a public facing mark to reassure consumers that the research is carried out honestly, objectively and with respect for the participant.
