As a general matter, Psyft collects the following all or few types of Personal Data from Data Subjects: contact information, including, a contact person’s name, work email address, work telephone number, designation, and company name. We also collect responses to other survey/assessment questions that are submitted by the Respondents. We do not collect any information on IP address and browser type.
Psyft is a service provider to Employers. In our capacity as a service provider, we will receive, store, and/or process Personal Data owned and/or controlled by Data Subjects, including information about the Employer’s employees, agents, or other individuals. In such cases, we will process the Personal Data on behalf of and under the direction of each Employer pursuant to a written contract with the Employer. The information that we collect from Employers in this capacity is used for preparing reports, managing transactions, invoicing, renewals, and other operations related to providing services to the Employer, and as otherwise requested by the Employer.
Psyft uses Personal Data that it collects directly from Data Subjects and Employers in its role as a service provider for the following business purposes, without limitation:
(1) to gather and process survey/assessment responses from Respondents (including managing transactions, reporting, invoices, renewals, and other operations related to providing services to a Customer);
(2) satisfying governmental reporting, tax, and other requirements (e.g., import/export);
(3) storing and processing data, including Personal Data, in computer databases and servers located in India;
(4) verifying identity (e.g., for online access to accounts);
(5) as requested by the Data Subject; and

Psyft may be forced to disclose an individual’s personal information when compelled by a request made by a recognized public authority or where required to meet national security and or law enforcement requirements.

Sensitive data

Psyft may ask a question on a survey/assessment that might be considered Sensitive Data. Any person taking a survey/assessment may refuse to answer any or all questions. By answering a question, a Respondent is agreeing to the use of the data being provided as a response to the question.

Data integrity and security

Psyft uses reasonable efforts to maintain the accuracy and integrity of Personal Data and to update it as appropriate. Psyft has implemented physical and technical safeguards to protect Personal Data from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alternation, or destruction. For example, electronically stored Personal Data is stored on a secure network with firewall protection, and access to Psyft's electronic information systems requires user authentication via password or similar means. Psyft also employs access restrictions, limiting the scope of employees who have access to Customer Personal Data.Despite these precautions, no data security safeguards guarantee 100% security all of the time.

Accessing personal data

Psyft personnel may access and use Personal Data only if they are authorized to do so and only for the purpose for which they are authorized. Anonymous aggregated survey/assessment responses are used for Psyft's ongoing research, analysis, benchmarking, and trending purposes, and such information may be retained indefinitely (“Benchmarking Information”). Information that would identify a participant within the Benchmarking Information is not retained, identified, and is never disclosed to anyone.
