Thanks for using SurveyLegend!
We know it is always hard and time consuming to read long and complicated legal agreements. Therefore, we have tried to make a brief and easy text; which explains your rights and our concerns in a nice and reader-friendly way. So, please take your time and have a look at this content.
What are these terms all about?
Well, we know it’s a long boring legal text; but all it is trying to say is:
● We Understand, Respect and Protect your rights, privacy and data, and also your participants’ rights, privacy and data; and we will not misuse any of these.
● We expect you to mutually respect your participants’ privacy and data; and do not misuse SurveyLegend’s services for any kind of bad intentions.
That was a brief abstract of our terms. However, to keep it legally correct, we have to write it in details. So, we recommend you to read all the content in the above tabs before registering an account at SurveyLegend.
You indicate your agreement to these Terms by signing up in our website using your email (as username) or using 3rd party registrations (such as Facebook or Google), by clicking or tapping on a button indicating your acceptance of these Terms, by using SurveyLegend or by executing a document that references them. Any person using the services on behalf of an organization, agrees to these Terms on behalf of that organization.

The subscription plan can be changed by your choosing at any time, in which case your Subscription will continue until the end of that billing cycle before terminating. If not cancelled, your subscription will automatically renew at the end of each billing cycle.

Privacy points in general
If you make surveys:
● You own your survey data. Not only that, but SurveyLegend treats your surveys like they were private. We don’t sell them to anyone and we don’t use the survey responses you gather for our own intents, except in a restricted set of conditions (e.g. if you’ve made your survey responses public, or if we are compelled by a subpoena).
● We safeguard respondents’ personal information. To make it easier for you to invite people to take your surveys via email, you may upload lists of email addresses. In such a case SurveyLegend will keep all that data safe and inaccessible to third parties. We don’t sell these information and we use them only as directed by you and in accordance with this policy. It is the same if you collect any email addresses or personal information via your surveys.
● We respect your participants as much as we respect you: Even if you make your survey results public on SurveyLegend website (e.g. when you show the data to your survey participants); we will never show the personally identifiable data (such as their emails, or geo-locations, etc.) of your participants publicly on the website. Such data is only shown to you when you login to your account; or while exporting the data.
● We keep your data securely. Read our Security Statement for further info.
If you respond to surveys:
● Surveys are administered by account owners (survey creators). We gather the responses that you submit to the survey creator. If you wonder about a survey you are taking, please reach out to the survey creator directly; which is usually the same person who asks you to respond to his/her survey. This is because SurveyLegend is not responsible for the content of surveys or your responses to it.
● Are your responses anonymous? This depends on the survey and how the survey creator has configured the survey. We recommend you contact them to find out.
● We don’t sell your responses to third parties. SurveyLegend only presents and saves the data for the survey creator, who controls your data.
