Platform privacy policy


In the following we use the term platform referring to Zurvey.io.

Users (data subjects) are persons who are having access to the platform. We are storing their name, email address and password to the platform.

The platform’s users belong to clients, which are legal entities and responsible for the data they upload to the platform. (In specific cases of individual users when they have been registered to the platform without naming a legal entity (their company) where they belong to then these users are the clients as well and are holding the related responsibility and obligations as well.)

Respondents are persons who are sending answers to the client’s surveys that are shared via the platform. These respondents are usually customers of the clients, potential customers or employees of the client.

Administrators are employees of Zurvey.io platform creator Neticle Labs Ltd. They are developers, account managers or analysts who might help the users in steps, questions or report creation. The administrators are handling all client information and data confidentially and cannot share it with 3rd parties without written permission from the client.

Website refers to Zurvey.io main page and sub-pages on this domain. It does not refer to the platform related pages, that are available on the sub-domain: portal.zurvey.io

Data we manage

With Zurvey.io we are handling 3 types of data:

  • data about our users,
  • data that our users upload to the platform for process and analyze,
  • data that our users collect via surveys from respondents

The platform is acting as data controller and data processor regarding the user data and for the data that our users upload or collect via platform surveys they are acting as data controller and the platform is data processor.

Managing user data

The platform uses standard authentication methods and stores our users’ names, email addresses and passwords for login. No other personal or sensitive data is collected mandatorily. During automated registrations users can provide additional information to help our Administrators to give customized support. This data can be the user’s phone number, industry, position or country.

Users can provide card payment information to use the platform. Credit/debit card data is stored in a secure, encrypted way and the 3rd party payment services only receive the necessary data to manage the payment.

The user data is stored in a secured and encrypted database. We are not trading this data and do not give access to other 3rd parties.

The platform can use the emails of the users to share the latest platform updates with them.

The platform can send email notifications on specific triggers, for example if a data set analysis is ready or a certain amount of survey respondents reached for a project.

Users and card data can be deleted from the platform permanently upon client request or user request.

Uploading data to platform

Users can upload data sets to process and analyze them with the platform. These data sets are usually customer reviews, social media comments, online news, survey answers collected with another survey platform.

The client acts as data controller in such cases and it’s the client’s responsibility to provide the right data privacy and usage notices when collecting the data set outside the platform.

The uploaded data is analyzed, text analyzed and summarized by the platform. The results can be accessed via the platform dashboard or exported into different file formats. The client’s users have access to the uploaded data set.

The data set is stored in secure encrypted format and can be deleted permanently by the users.

We are not sharing the uploaded data sets or analysis results with 3rd parties nor with other clients.

Upon client request our administrators can have access to the data set to help in troubleshooting or platform usage.

Collecting survey data

Users can create surveys with the platform and share them with specific respondents or share the survey link publicly.

The platform collects IP address, browser type, device, operation system data from the respondents automatically. This data collection can be switched off by the user before sharing the survey.

The platform saves the respondent answers only after fully finishing and submitting a survey by default. These settings can be changed by the user, so answers will be saved real-time. In this case the respondents receive a notification automatically when they open the survey link.

The collected survey answers and data is stored in a secure encrypted format and is not shared with 3rd parties or other clients. Users can delete it permanently.

If the client collects personal or sensitive information from the respondents, it’s the client’s responsibility to notify the respondents about their privacy and data management goals.

Embedded survey

With the platform clients are able to integrate micro-surveys into mobile applications or web applications. These micro-surveys usually ask a few non-personal questions from the users of the application. For example: please rate this application or share your experience with your own words.

The micro-surveys automatically collect the respondents’ user id, their device type and the triggering event.

The micro-survey question generally does not contain personal data collection though it’s the client’s responsibility to notify the respondents about the goals and details of the data collection.

The collected survey answers and data is stored in a secure encrypted format and is not shared with 3rd parties or other clients. Users can delete it permanently.


Clients can also integrate the platform with their in-house IT solutions and databases. In this case the platform processes and analyzes data is collected by the client via other channels and the client has to notify the respondents or data sources about the data processing with the platform.

Showing analysis results on dashboard

Users can see the result of the data processing and analyzing via web-based dashboard from their browsers. They can see charts and summarizations and also load the original data from which these values calculated.

3rd parties and other clients’ users do not have access to this dashboard.

Exporting the data

Users can export a data set analysis result into different file formats. This file contains the original data set and the calculated data as well.

The exporting functions are only available for users of the client and the administrators of the platform.

Access to personal data during development and support

In special cases administrators of the platform might need to access personal data for testing or troubleshooting purposes. They do not have the right to copy or share personal information.

Storage period and deletion

The collected or uploaded data is stored for an indefinite time period by default. Users can delete every data set of the client permanently and immediately from the platform.
