Nevada ADRC - Anonymity Policy
It is up to each survey creator to decide if they want to collect responses anonymously, or to capture respondents' personal information. Respondents' personal information can be captured by the survey creator in two ways: by expressly asking you for your personal details (name, address, etc.), and by configuring the survey to automatically capture your IP address and/or email address.
The Nevada ADRC Survey and Quiz/Test Modules provide distribution methods that range from emailing a survey/test/quiz link, embedding a survey/test/quiz on a personal or business website or as a sub page of the Nevada ADRC Portal, using social networks to post survey/test/quiz links, and so on. All of these options allow the survey creator to collect responses anonymously. All collection methods permit the tracking of respondent IP addresses. Anyone using capture fields within the survey/test/quiz could potentially track an email address on the response.
By default the email storage log and IP address log are not available or viewable by users. They are stored only for the purposes of researching SPAM or Email Campaign issues from users who claim to have been reached outside of the normal Opt In/Opt Out procedures. This information is used my system administrators for auditing and campaign tracking of received complaints from individuals, ISP's, etc.
Note that although survey creators may choose to collect responses anonymously, creators may still include specific surveytest/quiz questions that ask you for personally identifiable information. That information falls outside the scope of the system anonymity policy.
Users' security and privacy concerns are taken seriously. We strive to ensure that user data is kept secure, and that we collect only as much personal data as is required to make our users' experience with as efficient and satisfying as possible. We also aim to collect data in the most unobtrusive manner possible. We aim to be transparent about our security infrastructure and practices to help reassure you that your data is sufficiently protected.
If the URL of your survey/test/quiz contains "https://" at the start, your survey responses are sent to us over a secure, encrypted connection. Whether a survey/test/quiz offers this depends on whether the survey/test/quiz creator has enabled this feature or not.
