A Special Cookies Statement: We use cookies, pixels and similar technology as we have said above. This technology can help us make sure that you are seeing only advertising relevant to you. However, there is a lot about the world of cookies online that needs to improve. We encourage you to inform yourself about your rights in this area and to actively engage with cookie tools on websites to ensure you are expressing your preferences. We have worked hard to improve our preference management of cookies on our sites but it is important you manage these preferences all across the Internet too. Depending on your geographic location you can withdraw your consent to our use of non-essential cookies by interacting with our in-product cookie preferences tool.

See Section 6 in our Privacy Notice for more information on Cookies.

Our Privacy Commitment: Your surveys, forms, applications, and questionnaires and any responses you collect through them are private (except if you have made them available via a public link in which case they would be searchable on the internet). We don’t sell those individual responses to anyone and we use them only for purposes related to providing or improving our services for you, and as outlined in the Privacy Notice. For example, we do make use of respondent related data in our survey tool to aggregate usage trends (mainly metadata) around Respondents (for example, questions answered and success of specific survey and question types over time) so that we can make more accurate recommendations to you around use of our services.

We respect respondent contact information. To make it easier for you to invite people to take surveys and questionnaires or fill out forms and applications via email, you may upload lists of email addresses or phone numbers, in which case SurveyMonkey acts as a mere custodian of that data. We don’t sell these email addresses or phone numbers and we use them only as directed by you and in accordance with our Privacy Notice. The same goes for any Respondent email addresses or phone numbers collected in your account.

If you are a US consumer, please visit our Region Specific Privacy Notice for more information about our use of your personal information.

See Section 4 in our Privacy Notice for more information.

To help us provide certain aspects of our services, we work with affiliates and trusted partners – in particular, we engage third parties:

  • To facilitate our email collectors for sending surveys by email or text to Respondents. For email delivery, we use SparkPost and for text/SMS services we use Twilio. We share the relevant contact information for respondents (email address or phone number as applicable) with these third parties;
  • To facilitate customers in making payments and to detect fraudulent payment attempts;
  • To deliver and help us track our marketing and advertising content;
  • To help us track website conversion success metrics;
  • To manage our sales and customer support services to you (including resolving disputes); and
  • To deliver certain AI driven product features which you choose to use.

Where we use any third parties to help us deliver services to you (the Creator), and they process your response data as part of those services, we maintain a list of these third parties here. Keep in mind this list covers all of our different services, so not all of these third parties will be applicable to the service you are using.

See Section 5 in our Privacy Notice for more information.

If you are a Creator, we generally do not delete the data in your account as long as your account is active – you are responsible for and control the time periods for which you retain this data. You can read about this here for our surveys tool and here for our GetFeedback Digital service. Here are some exceptions:

• If you are a free user on our platforms and you have not engaged with the service actively for some time, we reserve the right to delete your account and data in accordance with our data retention policy.
• If you have exceeded your response limit in a Basic (free) account, we will delete the overages if you do not upgrade within a fixed timeframe.

We also encourage Creators to actively review their data retention practices in their account and take care to retain data only as long as is strictly necessary.
