Why do we want your input?

As a current or potential user of NPL services, your views are important to us. With input from people and organisations external to NPL, we can further develop our work in order to best fulfil customer needs.

What will NPL do with the information?

After the survey closes, we will analyse the data received. Your individual responses to surveys will be kept confidential and we will not make any personal or organisational information available to anyone without your knowledge, except as required by law. We may share the data collected in an anonymised format with relevant interested third parties; however, we will not sell the information provided to us to any third party. Your decisions about participating in a survey, responding to specific questions, or discontinuing participation will be respected without question.

Occasionally, we may wish to contact you by telephone or email in order to validate or follow up your response and gather further information regarding your organisation's needs. However, you may select to opt out of this at the end of the survey.

What happens after a survey closes?
