MultiRater Surveys is the hosting site for surveys developed and completed by other companies (the 'Customer'). Therefore, we do not issue the survey or survey results to Survey Participants, nor are we involved in any of the HR processes. When the MultiRater Surveys Application provides survey results and any interpretation of them to a Customer, we cannot delete that information from the Customer’s records, nor can we control the use the Customer makes of it. The Customer, as the entity that issues the surveys and manages your survey results, has control of this information. Please refer to your point of contact from the company that issued the survey you took if you have any privacy concerns with your testing information.

If you are a Customer, you may submit a request to access, review, correct or delete your PII by contacting email@example.com with the subject 'My Customer PII Changes'. If you are a Customer, we cannot delete all of your PII unless we also delete your user account. If you wish to cancel your account, please contact your account manager.
For all three of the above-mentioned categories, you can always choose whether you wish to receive promotional emails, telephone calls or postal mail from MultiRater Surveys. Every marketing email from MultiRater Surveys contains instructions for how to opt out of receiving further marketing emails.
We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.
Since we keep track of past transactions, you cannot delete information associated with past transactions on the Websites or through the Services. In addition, it may be impossible to completely delete your PII because some residual information may exist in archived data backups. Finally, we reserve the right to retain and use your PII as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.
13. Personal Data Breach Notification
In the event that your data is compromised, MultiRater Surveys will notify affected users within 72 hours by email with information about the extent of the breach, affected data and any impact on services, along with MultiRater Surveys' action plan for measures to secure the data and limit any possible detrimental effect on the data subjects.
'Personal data breach' means a breach of security leading to the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration or unauthorised disclosure of or access to personal data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed in connection with the provision of services.

We may also store your information on servers based overseas or in the 'cloud' or other types of networked or electronic storage. If your information is stored in this way we will take reasonable steps to ensure that the overseas recipient does not breach relevant privacy laws.
It is your right to be dealt with anonymously, provided that is it lawful and practicable. We will try to accommodate a request for anonymity wherever possible, however, in some circumstances, this may prevent us from providing you with the full range of our services and it may prevent you from experiencing all features and benefits of the services we provide.
18. Accessing and correcting personal information
You can access your information by asking us. Occasionally, we may need to refuse your request to access information, for example, where granting you access would infringe someone else’s privacy. When you request access, we will ask you to provide some form of identification so that we can ensure that you are the person to whom the information relates. In some cases, we may also ask you to pay a reasonable fee to cover the cost of access.
If you think there is something wrong with the information we hold about you we will apply all reasonable efforts to correct it if it is inaccurate, out of date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading. If you are worried that we have given incorrect information to others, you can ask us to tell them about the correction.
