Research Project Privacy Notice

You have been asked to participate in a research project (the “Research Project”) being conducted by Russell Reynolds Associates ("RRA’). If you agree to participate in the Research Project, you may voluntarily provide RRA with personal information.

The purpose of this notice is to advise you how RRA will process your personal information relating to the Research Project. Set out below is important information about RRA, the Research Project, our data collection practices and the privacy rights available to you. Please feel free to contact us at if you have any questions or need any further

Who is Russell Reynolds Associates? We are a leading search and leadership advisory firm. In legal terms, Russell Reynolds Associates, Inc., and in some cases, the local RRA entity with whom you are dealing acts as the "data controller" of your personal information.

What is the Research Project? The objective of our research projects is to gather and analyze perspectives and data on important leadership issues such that we can effectively advise our clients and prospective clients on those issues.

What information do we collect and why? If you participate in the Research Project, then RRA will collect and process certain personal information about you (such as your contact information, your career history) in addition to your perspective on the issues discussed in the research project. RRA does not actively seek to collect sensitive personal information about you (like information about your race or ethnic origin and physical or mental health). However, certain questions we ask you in connection with the Research Project may, from time to time, reveal certain information about you that is treated as sensitive personal information.

Please also read our Privacy Notice at and the sections that apply to "Candidates" for further important information about how we collect, share and use personal information about you, and how you can exercise your privacy rights. Notwithstanding anything described in the Privacy Notice, RRA will not share with any third party identifiable personal information collected specifically for the Research Project or otherwise use such personal information for any purpose other than the Research Project, without your prior approval.

Do I have to provide my personal information? You do not have to participate in this Research Project and your provision of any personal information is entirely voluntary.
