USE OF SURVEY DATA

In general survey responses are controlled and managed by the Creator (the person who sent or deployed that survey). In those instances, LBC IT Solutions, Inc. is only processing those responses on behalf of the Creator.

Creator and Respondent trust is paramount to everything we do and so when we do use data about Respondents, we put Creators and Respondents first. When we do an analysis of response data we only do so once we aggregate and anonymize or pseudonymize the data.

SAFETY OF MINORS

Our services are not intended for and may not be used by minors. “Minors” are individuals under the age of 13 (or under a higher age if permitted by the laws of their residence). LBC IT Solutions, Inc. does not knowingly collect personal data from Minors or allow them to register. If it comes to our attention that we have collected personal data from a Minor, we may delete this information without notice. If you have reason to believe that this has occurred, please contact customer support.

CHANGES TO OUR PRIVACY NOTICE

We can make changes to this Privacy Notice from time to time. We will identify the changes we have made on this page. In circumstances where a change will materially change the way in which we collect or use your personal information or data, we will send a notice of this change to all of our account holders.

YOUR RIGHTS

Where you have responded to a survey, form, or application sent to you by a Creator using an LBC IT Solutions, Inc. service, you will need to reach out directly to that individual or organization to discuss managing, deleting, accessing, restricting access to or otherwise withdrawing consent for use of the information which you provided to them in your responses. LBC IT Solutions, Inc. does not control your response data, and accordingly, is not able to directly handle these requests in relations to that data.
