SENSOSTAT organizes sensory analysis tests of all types of products.

To do this, on the one hand it contacts its customers and prospects to offer them its services, on the other hand it invites consumers to participate in test sessions, to collect the sensations perceived in relation to the products studied.

As part of these activities, we are required to process personal data about you, whether you are a customer, a prospect or a panelist.

In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation adopted by the European Parliament on April 14, 2016, and the Data Protection Act of January 6, 1978 amended, this Privacy Policy defines and informs you in the manner SENSOSTAT uses and protects the information you transmit to us.

Personal data

SENSOSTAT collects the following data:

During visits to our website: information that allows us to improve our site and our services (including cookies).

On our customers and prospects: your details and professional function

On our panelists: your contact details, date of birth and sex, consumption habits and responses to sensory tests, followed by participation in sensory tests, number of the identity document presented.

During a sensory analysis test, the collected data are never nominative. The use of a pseudonym guarantees a first confidentiality of the data. After archiving, the data is anonymized, and it becomes impossible to link the data to the respondents.

Data Processing Manager

The data controller is SENSOSTAT, Société par Actions Simplifiée, with a registered capital of 15,000 euros, registered under the number 539 006 973 in the trade and companies register of Dijon, having its registered office at 35, rue Parmentier – 21000 Dijon.

Only SENSOSTAT is the recipient of your personal data. These, whether in individual or aggregated form, are never transmitted to a third party, nor to the promoters of sensory studies, nor to another organism organizing tests of sensory analysis.
