What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Surveys

If you complete a survey on this site, by e-mail or through SurveyMonkey, the information you enter will be collected and stored for the purpose of market research. We will not use your information for any other purposes without your consent.

Market research includes analysing and evaluating your responses in order to understand needs, preferences, opinions, experience with products and services, assessing future opportunities and to monitor market performance. This information will be used by Hut Six internally, and also compiled in the form of reports and whitepapers that will be used as freely available content on the HutSix.io website. Responses to questions will be used anonymously, with no identifying information regarding the person providing it or the company they work for being disclosed.

We will only retain names, emails and other personally identifiable information for as long as is required to complete the research, unless consent has been obtained to retain them.

Surveys may have an option to be contacted via email or phone for marketing purposes. Should you consent to further communication, the details you provide will be stored within Hut Six’s customer relationship management system (CRM) system, in HubSpot, for use in marketing communications via email and telephone correspondence regarding Hut Six’s product offering.

Surveys may have an option to receive free digital media such as posters, whitepapers and guides. Should you consent to receiving one or more of these, then your information will be entered into the Hut Six CRM for this sole purpose. Upon delivery of the requested collateral, your information will be removed from the system.

The lawful basis we rely upon for processing this information is your consent. You are able to remove your consent at any time. You can do this by contacting privacy@hutsix.io.

We use SurveyMonkey to collect information for some surveys. You can view their privacy policy at https://www.surveymonkey.com/mp/legal/privacy-policy/
