How We Collect and Use Your Data

We do not sell personal data to anyone and only share it with third parties who are facilitating the delivery of BSR services.

We rely on the fulfillment of the contract as the lawful basis under GDPR Article 6(1)(b) for the processing of member and client data.

Human Resources Data

BSR is always looking for new employees, and we are always pleased to receive solicited job applications. If you wish to apply for a position with us, please apply directly through our website. Email resume attachments will not be considered.

  • Your data will be treated confidentially

  • We do not disclose your data, except for the data processors we use in our recruitment procedure.

BSR has ensured that applicants have expressly authorized personal information to be transmitted to BSR for position consideration. Access to this personal data is restricted to relevant employees within BSR only.

Website Visitors’ Data

In general, website visitors do not need to provide personalized information to BSR. We do collect “aggregate data,” that is, group data with no personal identifiers. We use this aggregate data to help us understand how the site is being used and to improve its usability. We also use it to enhance the quality and availability of products and services we offer.

We also, with explicit permission, use aggregate data from online surveys you choose to fill out for research and publication purposes.

If personal data is provided and retained, it is only name, business contact email, and business contact phone number, which allow BSR to contact the visitor at his or her organization. BSR solely holds the information and engages in no contact-sharing program with other organizations.


When you send an inquiry to us through our contact form, we use the personal data that you have stated in the contact form to answer you. Any personal data received from you will not be used for any other purpose without your prior consent and knowledge and will not be disclosed.

For any query:


To ensure that the services we offer meet your requirements, we may ask for your feedback in form of surveys and polls. Any feedback received from you will only be used to improve our services and will not be disclosed.

We rely on your consent as the lawful basis under GDPR Article 6(1)(a) for the processing of data in connection with surveys.

Personal Data Collected From Third Parties

We receive a limited amount of data via lead generation programs. Contacts can change email preferences at any time and opt-out by following the links included in BSR emails for this purpose.
