This Privacy Policy covers how Praiseworthy collects, uses, stores, shares, transmits, deletes or otherwise processes personally identifiable information, including personally identifiable information associated with the URLs praiseworthy.co.

For the purposes of this policy, Praiseworthy defines the term “Client” as a business with which Praiseworthy has an established relationship, “Customer” as a customer of a Praiseworthy Client, and “Respondent” as an individual who takes Praiseworthy’s surveys independent of Praiseworthy’s Clients.

Data may be collected through a web form at praiseworthy.co, where interested parties enter their own data directly into that form to request a demonstration of a Praiseworthy product.The data may include name, title, phone number and e-mail address, company name and company address).

Data Collected By Praiseworthy Through Surveys

Praiseworthy may collect additional personal information as provided voluntarily and directly by Respondents who choose to participate in Surveys. Prior to entering data, Respondents are provided with a description regarding what data will be collected, how it will be used, and how it will be shared.

Praiseworthy does not collect or receive sensitive personally identifiable information such as: credit card numbers, social security numbers, financial account and transaction information, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership. Praiseworthy may collect demographic information for statistical purposes if required by a survey. As with all responses to survey questions, responses to demographic questions are entirely voluntary.

Praiseworthy’s mobile reporting application, used by Praiseworthy’s Clients, uses third-party services to gather data on application usage and stability. This data is shared only with the relevant client. A user may unsubscribe from tracking through the user settings screen within the mobile application, or by texting back “STOP” to the text message originally provided, or emailing support@praiseworthy.co.

To ensure the integrity of its research, Praiseworthy uses cookies to identify returning users from the same device. Praiseworthy also uses respondent IP address, the date and time at which respondents access Praiseworthy’s dashboard, and respondent HTTP request headers. Praiseworthy also uses third-party analytical cookies for tracking web traffic and usage of the praiseworthy.co web site.

How Praiseworthy Uses Data

Praiseworthy may bundle and share data in an aggregate, non-personally identifiable form.

When Praiseworthy presents resulting aggregate proprietary research, individual responses may be shared, but only after removal of any personally identifying information associated with the response.

Protection of Personally-identifiable Information

Praiseworthy is not in the business of selling or renting personally identifiable information gathered in the course of client work to third parties. Praiseworthy shares information with Clients only as described in this policy or as described at the time information is collected.

Voluntary Participation

Individuals may choose not to participate in Praiseworthy’s research. An opt-out choice is included in each communication to individuals, and those who exercise it will be added to Praiseworthy’s opt-out list for the relevant client within ten (10) business days of unsubscribing. For each client, Praiseworthy does not send survey invitations to any e-mail address on the applicable opt-out list. Praiseworthy also provides its opt-out lists on a timely basis to its clients and third party agents so that they may properly update their records.

Individuals may elect to opt out at any time from receiving email or text from Praiseworthy and are under no obligation to take surveys sent to them. Individuals who wish to reverse an earlier unsubscribe option may contact Praiseworthy’s Privacy Contact (see contact information below) to change their opt-out status.

Access

Customers and respondents may contact Praiseworthy (see Privacy Contact below) at any time if they feel there is an error in their personally identifiable information. Because Praiseworthy generally receives and retains personally identifiable information as an agent of its Clients, Praiseworthy may as appropriate refer individuals reporting inaccuracies in their personally identifying information to the originating source for correction.

Subsequent to verifying the identity of a person making a request, Praiseworthy will respond to a request for offline access to personally identifiable information within 30 days of receiving the request.

Anti-Spam Policy

Praiseworthy has a no tolerance spam policy. Praiseworthy sends communications to only those who have requested to receive it or with whom there is a pre-existing business relationship with a Praiseworthy Client.

What constitutes a Pre-existing business relationship?

A pre-existing business relationship exists if the recipient of our text has conducted business with the Praiseworthy Client on whose behalf the survey request has been sent.

Third-party Partners

From time to time, Praiseworthy may contract with third parties to perform functions necessary for its research & development operations and, under the terms of those contracts, may transfer data to those third parties. Praiseworthy requires any such third party to maintain Privacy, Security and Confidentiality of such data.
