The REACT Study: What it is and how it works

Q: What does Ipsos mean?

A: It doesn’t mean anything. Our name - Ipsos - was formed in 2005 by the merger of Ipsos, founded in France in 1975 with its name derived from the Latin phrase ‘ipso facto’ and Market and Opinion Research International (MORI), founded in the UK in 1969. This merger created our name: Ipsos.

Q: Do I have to take part if I get a letter from you?

A: No, it’s completely voluntary.

Q: How will you use my data?

A: The Department for Health and Social Care (DHSC) and Imperial College London are joint data controllers for the processing of personal data for this survey, which means that they are responsible for ensuring that the processing complies with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). You can read DHSC’s Privacy Notice and Imperial’s privacy policy.

Ipsos is a data processor, acting on behalf of DHSC and Imperial College London. They will only keep your data in a way that can identify you for as long as is necessary to support the research project and findings. By December 2020 Ipsos will delete your personal contact data from its systems.
