Nielsen Data Controllers and Processors
This page identifies the Nielsen operating companies (including subsidiaries and joint ventures) that work together to provide Nielsen’s services around the world. In the language of privacy laws, all of these companies may be “data controllers” or “data processors” depending on the specific activities they perform. For instance, where a Nielsen company enters into a panelist agreement with an individual, it acts as a data controller. But where data collected by one Nielsen company is stored in a data center owned by a different Nielsen company, that second company acts as a data processor. Regardless of which role a company is playing at any time, all Nielsen companies must follow our global privacy and information security policies, to ensure that we are consistent in how we protect data, and to comply with privacy requirements around the world.
