This region specific privacy notice applies to all the products, services, websites and apps offered by SurveyMonkey Inc., SurveyMonkey Europe UC, SurveyMonkey Brasil Internet Eireli. and their affiliates (collectively “SurveyMonkey”), except where otherwise noted. SurveyMonkey, refers to these products, services, websites and apps collectively as the “services” in this policy. Unless otherwise noted, our services are provided by SurveyMonkey Inc. inside of the United States, by SurveyMonkey Brasil Internet Eireli. inside of Brazil, and by SurveyMonkey Europe UC everywhere else. This privacy statement is an extension to and forms part of the main SurveyMonkey Privacy Notice.
This notice describes the rights of individuals who are California residents under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). While we have set out the categories below as required by the CCPA, you can review our Privacy Notice for examples and other information that describes our data collection and use, as previously disclosed to you which have not changed under this Notice.
This Notice consists of the following sections:
The CCPA requires businesses that “sell” personal information, as the term “sell” is defined under the CCPA, to provide California residents the right to opt-out from such sales. SurveyMonkey does not “sell” your personal information as we understand that term to be defined by the CCPA and its implementing regulations.
To the extent that you have taken the position that a website’s use of third party cookies or similar technology for advertising or analytics constitutes a “sale” under the CCPA, you may consider SurveyMonkey to have “sold” what the CCPA refers to as “identifiers” (e.g. IP addresses), “internet or other electronic network activity information” (e.g. information about an individual’s browsing activity on a SurveyMonkey website), and “commercial information” (e.g. the fact that a browser visited a webpage directed at individuals considering purchasing SurveyMonkey products or services). Please refer to our Cookies Policy and Help Center article for more information, including how to exercise your rights to opt-out or manage your cookie preferences.
Subject to certain restrictions, California residents have the right to request that we disclose what personal information we collect about you, to delete any personal information that we collected from or maintain about you, and to opt-out of any sale of personal information about you. As a California resident, you also have the right to designate an agent to exercise these rights on your behalf. This section describes how to exercise those rights and our process for handling those requests, including our means of verifying your identity. If you would like further information regarding your legal rights under applicable law or would like to exercise any of them, please contact us here. While our contact form is the best way to reach us, you may also email us at email@example.com.
You have the right to request a copy of your personal information. Under the CCPA, you can also request that we disclose the categories of personal information that we collect, use, or sell about you and the specific pieces of personal information that we have collected about you over the last 12 months. However, as permitted under the CCPA, we may withhold some information where the risk to you or your personal information is too great to disclose the information, such as financial information or account passwords.
You have the right to request that we delete personal information that we have collected from or about you. However, we may retain personal information as authorized under applicable law, such as personal information required or necessary to provide our services, to protect against fraudulent activity, to identify and fix bugs, to exercise our or another person’s free speech or other rights, to comply with law enforcement requests pursuant to lawful process, for scientific or historical research, for our own internal purposes reasonably related to your relationship with us, or to comply with legal obligations. We need certain types of information so that we can provide our services. If you ask us to delete it, you may no longer be able to access or use our services.
You may exercise your access and deletion rights by submitting your request here. While our contact form is the best way to reach us, you may also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. For security purposes, we may request additional information from you to verify your identity when you request to exercise your access and deletion rights.
The CCPA prohibits us from discriminating against you for exercising the CCPA rights described in this section. Such discrimination may include charging different prices for our services, providing or suggesting that you will receive a different level or quality of services, or refusing to provide services to you if you exercise your CCPA rights. We will not discriminate against you for exercising your CCPA rights.
