Market researches and opinion polls are based on trust; the trust that the researches are carried out honestly, objectively, without causing a nuisance or a prejudice to the respondents and that are based on the cooperation of the public. Moreover, personal and/or confidential data provided during a survey must not be disclosed to third parties without the respondent's consent, and they must be only in aggregate forms so that they cannot be traced back to individual respondents and reconnected with their statements. (Assirm's Statute - Italian Association of market research institutions)
