How we collect information

Tracking technologies

This application does not use or share any user external tracking cookies. Security tokens and cookies are used to maintain the security of the platform. Information in HTTP requests, such as IP address and browser information, collect information about how and from where you access the platform.

Surveys and Assessments

You may produce survey or assessment content on this platform for future delivery. These data may contain personally identifiable information and are considered personal, confidential and protected.

The survey and assessment instruments you create under the permissions granted by your license may be used to collect data from other individuals. This platform allows you to store these data and grants you access to these data for analysis, reporting and downloading.

How we use your information

We do not use your information for any purpose unrelated to the intended purpose associated with your use of this platform: to collect response data, analyze data, and produce reports summarizing these data. Our use of these data is restricted to maintenance operations and quality assurance checks that are required to maintain and verify the proper operation of this application.

When we share your information

We do not share your information with any third parties (not accessing the platform under the same license as you) without your explicit request and consent. For clarity, under no circumstance would your confidential data be shared with any third party unless you request it or we are compelled by law.
If we are required by a legal discovery process or subpoena to share information which has been entrusted to our care, we will provide access only to the minimum information legally required to comply.

Storage and Transport

Your information is stored in Microsoft's cloud-based Azure Storage and Data services. All data are encrypted at rest and require explicit permissions defined through the user authentication process to access. All data are encrypted in transport through TLS/SSL protocols.

Where your information lives

The location of the servers housing your data depend on specific deployments. Please refer to Microsoft's data residency documentation. Note that internet protocols may route data residing in one jurisdiction through international servers; if you have concerns about this behaviour, you may wish to access this platform through a VPN.

How long we keep your information

We retain your data for the duration and in support of your license. If your license should lapse, we will retain your data for a 28 day period after the lapse to facilitate resurrection of your license. After this period or at your request, whichever is sooner, your data will be permanently deleted. Depending on which permissions you have as a licensed user, you may manually delete assessment content or response data through the user interface. We are not responsible for creating backups for or recovering data that you have inadvertently deleted.
