Uses of Information 

SurveyWriter is a web-based service for conducting surveys. Any information shared with SurveyWriter 
during the creation of a survey is owned solely by the administrator of that survey. By the nature or how 
our service works, surveys need to be shared via a URL on the Internet. We provide the option to 
password protect your surveys if they contain sensitive content. 

Email addresses uploaded to the system for the purpose of sending survey invitations and email 
communication are owned solely by the survey administrator. We will never share any information 
uploaded to the system with any 3rd parties. 

Data collected through surveys is owned solely by the survey administrator. By default, the data is only 
accessible by providing a username and password and logging into the site. There is the option to 
share online reports via a URL from the administrative account. The survey administrator controls this 
option. We will never use any of the data collected. 

Communications from the Site 

Ongoing Communication and Product Updates 

We will occasionally send you information on product enhancements, new services, and additional 
instruction on utilizing our services. These communications are designed to educate our users on the 
services offered. Out of respect for your privacy, we present the option not to receive these types of 
communications. Please see the 'Opt-out'. 

Service-related Announcements 

We will send you strictly service-related announcements when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if 
our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email. Service-related 
emails are also sent confirming billing transactions, account upgrades, and account cancellations. 

Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature. If you do 
not wish to receive them, you have the option to cancel your account. 

Information Sharing and Disclosure 

Personally Identifiable Information Sharing with Partners 

If a user specifically requests a service from one of our partnering companies, their personally 
identifying information will be shared. The partnering company may contact them directly regarding 
their inquiry. Any requests of partnering companies are initiated solely by the user and it will be clearly 
indicated that a partnering company offers the requested service. We reserve the right to disclose your 
personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary 
to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process. 


If you no longer wish to receive our product updates, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the 
instructions included in each product update email.
