You might have been contacted via email or phone and you would have been presented with a note that aims to ensure all our respondents are aware that their Basic Business Card Information is processed by Rhetorik.

This includes automated processing of Business Card Information to assign IT Purchasing Responsibility of Buyer, Influencer and User.
Source of your Business Card Information
Businesses like yours have participated in our marketing research for the past 20 years – during which time we have created a unique repository of Company Technology Profiles and related Business Card Information. Nowadays we use a diverse range of sources in the collection of Business Card Details – those may include your own company website, collaboration with publicly and private listed data repositories, social media interactions or interaction at events. Rhetorik takes great pride in ensuring that all our data research efforts are of the highest standards.
Once a Business Card information set is linked to a specific Corporate Technology Profile a written notice is issued to inform the Business Card holder that their business details are currently processed by Rhetorik.
Business Card information linked to a specific Corporate is reviewed on a regular basis and notice is refreshed on a 18-months cycle.
How long do you keep my Business Card information?
Business Card information details are linked to a specific Company Technology Profile for as long as the information is valid and accurate.
When a Business Title is no longer active at a specific Company, we would archive the information.
Following a suppression request, the Business Card Details are moved to the suppression list related to the specific Company, for the performance of our legal obligation.
