Privacy Policy

SurveyTalent operates SurveyTalent.com, an online survey tool. It is SurveyTalent's policy to respect your privacy, and the privacy of your clients, regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites. You retain all rights to your data.

Website Visitors.

Like most website operators, SurveyTalent collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. SurveyTalent's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how SurveyTalent's visitors use its website. From time to time, SurveyTalent may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

SurveyTalent also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users, users leaving comments on SurveyTalent.com blogs and survey respondents. SurveyTalent only discloses logged in user, commenter and respondent IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that respondent IP addresses are visible and disclosed to users of the account that manages the survey that was responded to.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information.

Certain visitors to SurveyTalent's websites choose to interact with SurveyTalent in ways that require SurveyTalent to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that SurveyTalent gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at SurveyTalent.com to provide an email address. Those who engage in transactions with SurveyTalent - by purchasing paid services - are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, SurveyTalent collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with SurveyTalent. SurveyTalent does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information.

SurveyTalent discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on SurveyTalent's behalf or to provide services available at SurveyTalent's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using SurveyTalent's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. SurveyTalent will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, SurveyTalent discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when SurveyTalent believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of SurveyTalent, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an SurveyTalent website and have supplied your email address, SurveyTalent may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with SurveyTalent and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via our helpdesk or any other feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. SurveyTalent takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Security.

SurveyTalent has implemented processes intended to protect user information and maintain security of data. Each user is assigned a user name and password, which is required to access their Account. It is each user's responsibility to protect the security of his or her login information. We have attempted to protect SurveyTalent's servers by locating them areas with security procedures, using of firewalls and implementing other generally available security technologies, as described in SurveyTalent's Security Policy.

These safeguards help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of data, but no guaranty can be made that your information and data will be secure from intrusions and unauthorized release to third parties.

Cancellation or Termination of the Account.

If you choose to cancel your Account and leave SurveyTalent or your Account is terminated because of your breach of the Terms of Service, please be aware that SurveyTalent may for a time retain residual information in our backup and/or archival copies of our database. We will make reasonable commercial efforts to delete your information as soon as reasonably practical.

Cookies.

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer, and that the visitor's browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. SurveyTalent uses cookies to help SurveyTalent identify and track visitors, their usage of SurveyTalent website, and their website access preferences. SurveyTalent visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using SurveyTalent's websites, with the drawback that certain features of SurveyTalent's websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers.

If SurveyTalent, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that SurveyTalent goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of SurveyTalent may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Privacy Policy Changes.

Although most changes are likely to be minor, SurveyTalent may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in SurveyTalent's sole discretion. SurveyTalent encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
