What happens to the information I provide?
Every user who participates in a survey on TechFunnel.com provides their name, company name, email address, and city/state after completion of the survey. This information is used for two reasons: 1) To gather information on our users so we can target our surveys better; 2) To distribute our weekly newsletter.
TechFunnel.com’s policy in the use of data collected in surveys is that Participants will be advised how the data will be used at the beginning of the survey, and that the data collected can be used for any purpose known to the Participant. Unless it is made explicitly clear prior to completing a survey, Respondents identities and individual responses will not be disclosed by TechFunnel.com. TechFunnel will only provide the individual responses and feedback where permission is explicitly given by the Respondent.
Our surveys are designed to deliver the best information without compromising a Respondent’s anonymity. When you complete a survey, the information you provide will be processed and aggregated into an internal report. This report is reviewed by TechFunnel.com survey creators only with the purpose of creating better surveys. Raw survey responses are kept in TechFunnel.com’s secure database(s).
Some of TechFunnel.com’s surveys contain “free text” elements, where Respondents can provide additional information in their own words. Survey Respondents should note that these elements will be reported as they are written (i.e. unedited). Should a survey Respondent explicitly identify themselves, someone else, or company by name, writing style or otherwise, the Respondent will not remain anonymous. For transparency, TechFunnel.com explains this on each Surveys.
TechFunnel.com can aggregate confidential information gathered from the surveys we conduct and use this, together with other information known to us, to perform industry benchmarking and comparisons for the benefit of ourselves and our clients. We may also use this information for research, marketing, publishing and/or selling. TechFunnel.com will always adhere to our policy of anonymity, and will not disclose the identities of any company or individual in using this data.
We have implemented technology and security policies, rules, and measures to protect the personal information we have under our control. However, you should be aware that there are risks in transmitting information across the internet.
Once any personal information comes into our possession, we will take reasonable steps to protect that information from misuse and loss and from unauthorized access, modification or disclosure. If you are concerned about conveying sensitive material to us over the internet, you might prefer to contact us by phone or mail. We will remove personal information from our system where it is no longer required (except where archiving is required.)
