Information we collect from children
When a Study Creator (“Customer”) wishes to include children as participants we require the Customer to certify that they have the parental consent for the child to participate in the study. We store the survey data from the study for the Customer.
Customers are provided with a unique URL to pages that house their survey. There is no advertising, promotions or marketing on the survey pages. There are no links out from the survey and there is no use of third party service providers on these pages. There is no tracking or analytics on the survey pages.
UserZoom collects user feedback and behavioral data such as user paths, click coordinates and survey responses, which are then aggregated to highlight broader insights rather than individual participants. UserZoom does collect audio recordings and video images of participants as part of survey responses but only when the Customer has the correct level of parent consent.
How we use the information collected
The survey data is solely for the use of the Customer and all information is confidential. No data is sold or shared with any other third parties and is collected strictly for the internal support of the Customer’s service.
How long do we keep the information collected?
UserZoom will retain personal data we process on behalf of our Customers for as long as needed provide services to our Customer. UserZoom will retain and use this personal information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
If you are the parent of a child who has participated in a survey you may request that your child is removed from the study and their information deleted by contacting the survey creator or by emailing our Customer Support at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will retain your information for as long as the Customer account is active or as needed to provide you services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. When you enter sensitive information (such as login credentials) on our forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure Transport Layer Security (TLS). No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can contact us at email@example.com
