What type of data is collected?

The app is easy to install, sends Nielsen anonymous data about how you use your devices and is designed to have minimal impact on your device performance. Nielsen’s app and software do not collect the content of visited websites, and we do NOT collect user IDs, passwords, or other private information. The Nielsen devices you install will track what websites you go to and how long you stay there. 

The Nielsen app collects data on the following:

  • The URLs (webpages) you’re visiting
  • How long time you spend on each URL
  • General computer/or mobile device activity

The Nielsen app does NOT collect data such as:

  • Use IDs
  • Passwords

What about my data – are they safe?

Providing a company with access to all your browsing activity across different devices can seem daunting. How can you be sure your data is really safe with Nielsen? The Nielsen Company is the world’s biggest market research company, and it’s essential for its reputation and business model to store its users’ data as securely as possible. The key thing to remember is that the data Nielsen collects through their devices will be used for market research purposes in aggregate form. Even if Nielsen collects personally identifiable information (PII) like name, email address and phone number, this is not something they reveal to their clients individually. In line with GDPR, Nielsen needs to restrict the usage of PII data in line with the consent you gave when ticking the privacy policy checkbox when signing up. That’s why you should always check the privacy policy of every panel you join to get a full overview of what type of data you’ll need to share and how it will be used.
