PeriscopeIQ is committed to its policy of protecting the privacy and confidential information of Members, who register to build and deploy surveys and who from time to time might purchase services offered by PeriscopeIQ, and Participants, who register to respond to and answer surveys.
What personally identifiable information does PeriscopeIQ collect and what does PeriscopeIQ do with it?
Upon registration, Members provide us with personal information such as their name, address and e-mail address. We use this information to establish individual accounts protected by a password the Member selects. We ask for some additional demographic information from our Participants to determine their eligibility to participate in surveys requiring Participants who meet a specific demographic profile.
With respect to both Members and Participants, PeriscopeIQ uses the email address supplied in the registration process to confirm registration, and to send notices and updates to you concerning the services and the site. We will also add you to PeriscopeIQ’s mailing list if you requested that during registration.
PeriscopeIQ also uses “cookies,” or small pieces of information that we store on users’ computers, to recognize returning users and to monitor traffic through the site. This information helps us to make the site better and more user-friendly. We also collect with either cookies or weblogs users’ IP addresses and log in times that are identified by individual user. Finally, we collect the surveys and survey results that you have either deployed or participated in.
NOTE TO PARENTS AND MINORS: We do not want to collect any personal information whatsoever from minors-in fact, we ask that minors do not submit any information about themselves and that they not use this Site. Anyone using this Site or the Services warrants and promises that they are 18 years of age or older.
Does PeriscopeIQ Disclose My Personally Identifiable Information to Other Members?
No. All PeriscopeIQ does is send surveys to Participants on behalf of Members. PeriscopeIQ sends these surveys without disclosing any personally identifiable information on its Participants. Demographic information on Participants that a Member may require is disclosed only in aggregate form.
Participants should be aware, however, that in responding to surveys or survey invitations that they may be disclosing their own personally identifiable information to Members. The security and privacy protections in place on this Site and through the Service do not cover this type of transfer or disclosure of personal information. Participants responding to surveys or survey invitations are solely responsible for the content of their responses.
What Does PeriscopeIQ Do With Survey Responses?
Members access surveys they have built and their results/data through their individual accounts and lockers protected by a password they have selected. PeriscopeIQ will not use any such information without a Member’s express permission through an email authorization. A Member’s surveys and their results/data will be stored in the Member’s individual account and password-protected locker for no less than 30 days from the date of the close of a Member’s survey. In the future, extended storage may be available for a fee and Members may opt to delete any or such contents from their account and locker.
To Whom Do We Disclose Personal Information?
As a rule, we will not sell, distribute, publish or otherwise disclose your personally identifying information without your express permission through an e-mail authorization. However, if we believe you have breached the Terms of Agreement, especially with regard to transmitting, publishing or distributing pornographic, obscene, offensive, threatening, harassing, libelous, hate-oriented, harmful, defamatory, racist, illegal or otherwise objectionable materials or content, we will report such conduct to the appropriate authorities and turn over any and all information, including personal identifying information, to appropriate persons or entities. We will also comply with any laws or legal process that may require disclosure of personal identifying information.
How does PeriscopeIQ store my Personally Identifiable Information?
PeriscopeIQ stores personal information of Members and Participants in secure databases protected by passwords as well as database and network firewalls to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of personal information. While no security systems are infallible, Quantum Performance Solutions (PeriscopeIQ’s parent company) will prosecute any unauthorized access to secured information to the fullest extent of the law. PeriscopeIQ periodically reviews and updates security measures to insure the best possible protections for the membership.
Can I Delete Personally Identifiable Information on the site?
You can notify us at any time to remove your registration information from our database by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do that, we will not keep any personally identifiable records concerning you unless required to do so by law. However, if you make this request you will be unable to access or use the account you previously created and its associated content without going through the registration process again. In addition, PeriscopeIQ cannot retrieve any personally identifiable information Participants may have disclosed to Members in responding to surveys.
