Assessing Interest in STEM Content and Careers

This is an instrument to assess interest in STEM content and careers. This is part of a series of studies being conducted by The Education Support Forum (TEDSF), a South African based Non-Profit Organization and registered Public Benefit Organization.

 

This five-part questionnaire is designed to assess your perceptions of scientific disciplines. It should require about 5 minutes of your time. Usually it is best to respond with your first impression, without giving a question much thought. Your answers will remain confidential.

3.1 Creator

 

We process personal data about you either with your consent or in order to:

  • Fulfill our contractual responsibility to deliver the services to you;
  • To pursue MathsGee’s legitimate interests of:
  • improving service experience; and
  • developing new products and service features.

In each of the instances where we describe how we use your data in this privacy policy, we have identified which of these grounds for processing we are relying upon.

You have consented to us using certain types of tracking and third party cookies on our websites. In particular:

  • Cookies and Similar technology.

We or third party data and advertising platforms that we work with may use or combine multiple technologies, such as cookies, page tags, mobile identifiers and IP addresses to infer users’ common identities across different services and multiple devices such as tablets, browsers, and mobile phones. We may do so, for instance, to tailor ads to users, to enable us to determine the success of our advertising campaigns and to improve upon them. These third party data and advertising platforms may sometimes use data that we provide to them in order to improve their technologies and their ability to match common devices to users. We also may use this technology to allow a Creator to measure the performance of their email messaging and to learn how to improve email deliverability and open rates.

More details: The above data and techniques are used for personalized marketing, analytics, and related purposes. To learn more about interest-based advertising and how to opt-out of it, please see our Cookies Policy in Section 6. We use this data to personalize online marketing campaigns to be relevant to you and your interests in our services. By clearing your cookies in your browser settings you will no longer see personalized messages in this way but you continue to see ads over the internet that are not based on the information you provided to MathsGee.

We process your personal information in the following categories of data for legitimate interests pursued by us, which are described in detail in this Privacy Policy. We have undertaken to ensure that we place clear limitations on each of these uses so that your privacy is respected and only the information necessary to achieve these legitimate aims is used. Our primary goal is to improve upon and make sure our services and messaging are relevant for all our users, while also ensuring that personal information of all users is respected and protected.

  • Contact Information.

We use contact information to respond to your inquiries, send you information as part of the services, and send you marketing information (for as long as you do not opt-out).

More details: We use your email address to send you marketing (newsletters), unless you indicate a preference to opt-out and for general updates on your account. You can opt out of marketing communications at any time by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in them and changing the relevant setting on your My Account page.

  • How you use our services.

We use information about how you use our services to improve our services for you and all users.

More details: We collect information about the types of surveys/forms/applications you create (e.g. HR surveys), the types of plans you purchase and your account transactional behaviour to build a profile about you so as to help direct you and your organization to other relevant features and services we offer and help you in using our services, for example by making recommendations for you to optimize the use of our services.

  • Device and browser data.

We use device data both to troubleshoot problems with our service and to make improvements to it. We also infer your geographic location based on your IP address.

More details: We collect this to help us improve your service experience through a specific device/browser by optimizing how the website looks in a particular browser, how your screen brightness affects your experience and to ensure the service operates optimally and as it should on different devices and browsers.

  • Log data.

We use log data for many different business purposes to include:

  • To monitor abuse and troubleshoot.
  • To create new services, features, content or make recommendations.
  • To track behaviour at the aggregate/anonymous level to identify and understand trends in the various interactions with our services.
  • To fix bugs and troubleshoot product functionality.

More details: Your IP address is used to determine where an unknown/unauthorized access may have occurred in your account (abuse monitoring).

  • Referral information.

We use referral information to track the success of our integrations and referral processes.

  • Third parties and integrations.

We collect and use information from third parties and integration partners, where applicable to one of our services, to:

  • Ensure you can sign-up to our service from a third party integration like Facebook/LinkedIn/Microsoft/Google/SSO;
  • To personalize our services for you; and
  • Ensure you can use our service in conjunction with other services.

See further information here on our API partners – for other MathsGee services see below or on the website for that service.

  • Service and Marketing uses.
  • Profiling. We combine information about you from third party sources with information we hold about you to create a user profile, which will help us to make our sales and marketing efforts more relevant to you and to personalize and improve your service experience.
  • Machine learning. We use machine learning techniques on certain data in order to provide users with useful statistics and more relevant insights from the data they have collected using our services and to optimize our marketing campaigns and for fraud detection. For example, if you have used open text questions in a survey, our machine learning may provide you with useful insights into the trends in responses to that question in our Analyze survey tool.
  • To manage our services we will also internally use your information and data, for the following limited purposes:
  • To enforce our agreements where applicable.
  • To prevent potentially illegal activities.
  • To screen for and prevent undesirable or abusive activity. For example, we have automated systems that screen content for phishing activities, spam, and fraud.
  • Legal uses.

To respond to legal requests or prevent fraud, we may need to use and disclose information or data we hold about you. If we receive a subpoena or other legal request, we may need to inspect the data we hold to determine how to respond.

We collect and use the following on the basis that we have to use this information in order to fulfill our contract with you:

  • Your Account Information.

We need to use your account information to run your account, provide you with services, bill you for our services, provide you with customer support, and contact you about your service or account. We occasionally send you communications of a transactional nature (e.g. service-related announcements, billing-related matters, changes to our services or policies, a welcome email when you first register). You cannot opt out of these communications since they are required to provide our services to you.

  • Your Profile.

We process other aspects of your account information (like the personal information you provide about your job, your job title, and your marketing preferences) as well as information obtained from public sources, for legitimate interests like providing you with a personalized experience and relevant and useful marketing information as well as to make other product, feature and service recommendations to you and your organization to optimize the use of the services we offer.

You can object to us using your information as described above but in some cases, our ability to fully and properly provide our services to you may be impacted if you do not want us to collect or use the above data.

In relation to Survey Data

  • Your Data.

We also use survey questions and responses on an aggregated and anonymized basis as described in this Privacy Policy. We will never sell individual response data or identify / contact individual respondents except on your request or where required by law. Feature descriptions will identify where this is feature linked. In some cases you can avoid the use of your questions/responses in this way by simply choosing not to use a feature or by indicating your preferences in your account. See our “Respondent” section.

  •  

3.2 Respondent

 

We process your personal information in the following categories of data for legitimate interests pursued by us, which are described in detail in this Privacy Policy. We have undertaken to ensure that we place clear limitations on each of these uses so that your privacy is respected and only the information necessary to achieve these legitimate aims is used. Our primary goal is to improve upon and make sure our services and messaging are relevant for all our users, while also ensuring that personal information of all users is respected and protected.

  • Cookies (to include page tags).

We collect information using cookies when you take a survey. These cookies are used to ensure that the full functionality of our survey service is operational, to ensure the survey operates appropriately and optimally. For more information please read our Cookies section below and our Respondent Cookies Policy. After completion of a survey, in most cases, you will be re-directed to our website and treated as a website visitor where other cookies may be used so you should read our Website Visitor section if this is of interest to you.

Examples

We use page tags to allow the email sender (for a survey or form for example) to measure the performance of email messaging and to learn how to improve email deliverability and open rates. We also use cookies to ensure a respondent can only take a survey once (where the Creator has set this function) and to track completion rates of surveys.

  • Contact Information.

We only use contact information to respond to an inquiry which you, as a Respondent, submit to us.

Examples

Our customer support team uses your email address to communicate with you if you have contacted us about a survey, form, application, or questionnaire you received, but we will not send marketing to you unless you have otherwise opted-in to marketing.

  • How you use our services (applicable to survey Respondents only).

We use information about how you use our services to improve our services for you and all users.

Examples

We collect information about the types of questions you answer. This data will be aggregated and anonymized so we can examine patterns in terms of respondent preferences when submitting responses (see further below in Information for Survey Respondent section). We collect and use all this data for our legitimate interests like helping us improve the experience for respondents (so that questions are easier to answer), for training purposes and to understand industry trends in and to help improve the completion rates on surveys/forms.

We will also use usage information such as the type of survey, form, questionnaire or application that you answered to personalize products we show you on completion of a survey when you are re-directed to our website.

  • Device and browser data.

We use device data both to troubleshoot problems with our service and to make improvements to it. We also infer your geographic location based on your IP address.

Other Examples

We collect this to ensure that service experience works well across all possible devices and to infer geographic location to produce aggregated data around Respondent location trends. We also want to use this information to provide an additional data layer to Creators so that they can filter responses by e.g. inferred geographic location. Note however, that we do not collect precise GPS co-ordinate location. We just infer location from IP address. Finally we will use this information to compare and look at trends on how our service operates and how you interact with surveys, on different browsers and devices.

  • Log data.

We use log data for many different business purposes to include:

  • To monitor abuse and troubleshoot.
  • To create new services, features, content or make recommendations.
  • To track behaviour at the aggregate/anonymous level to identify and understand trends in the various interactions with our services.
  • To fix bugs and troubleshoot product functionality.

Examples

Your IP address is used to ensure that you do not complete the same survey, form, application or questionnaire twice if the creator has included settings to avoid this (ballot stuffing), for abuse monitoring purposes (so we can identify a Respondent who abused the survey taking experience in a manner contrary to our usage policies or to facilitate the Creator in complying with their own legal obligations). We also collect log data to collate aggregated data and metrics on activity at a non-identifying level and so that we can identify trends in survey taking over time.

  • Third parties and integrations.

We will collect and use information from third parties and integration partners to facilitate Creators in sending surveys/forms/applications/questionnaires to you.

  • Machine learning.

We will use machine learning techniques on response data, metadata (as described above) and cookie data, in order to provide Creators with useful and relevant insights from the data they have collected using our services, to build features, improve our services, for fraud detection and to develop aggregated data products. You can read more about this in relation to MathsGee surveys below.

  • To manage our services we will also internally use your information and data, for the following limited purposes:
  • To enforce our agreements where applicable.
  • To prevent potentially illegal activities.
  • To screen for and prevent undesirable or abusive activity. For example, we have automated systems that screen content for phishing activities, spam, and fraud.
  • Legal uses.

To respond to legal requests or prevent fraud, we may need to disclose any information or data we hold about you. If we receive a subpoena or other legal request, we may need to inspect the data we hold to determine how to respond.

Use of survey responses (MathsGee surveys only)

In general survey responses to MathsGee surveys are controlled and managed by the Creator (the person who sent or deployed that survey). In those instances MathsGee 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 analysis of response data we only do so once we have ensured the anonymity of individual respondents (by aggregating and anonymizing the data).

Our goal is to improve the user experience across MathsGee survey services while maintaining the confidentiality and privacy of responses.

We go into more detail below on how MathsGee uses survey data. A Creator has some controls over how we use responses in their Account settings and may have turned off our ability to apply machine learning to responses where it is feature linked.

MathsGee uses data in the ways described below, for our legitimate interests as described in this section:

The data impacted by this section includes:

  • Survey type, question type and responses (at an aggregated and anonymized level only)
  • Device data
  • Log data

MathsGee will use automated processes and machine learning, to analyze survey responses, which in turn helps us to:

  • Aggregate response data and activity:

We will aggregate responses, activity and behaviour of Respondents so that we can identify trends, build product features that optimize responses, make product recommendations and provide guidance on which products and services work best in different scenarios. These product features also provide feedback and recommendations to increase response rates. For an example of this check out how MathsGee Genius works. Extract and analyze usage patterns:

By understanding response data and Respondent interaction in different types of surveys we can:

  • improve our services and ease of use: for example, we might identify when respondents prefer multiple choice versus open text questions and make predictive response suggestions when certain question types are selected. We might also use this data to help improve analysis of responses,
  • undertake personalization for survey Creators and Respondents (for example by customizing the page on our website which a Respondent sees at the end of a survey - See more about Customizing Survey End Page here.). If a Respondent does not want to be included in this personalization they can clear the cookies in their browser settings after taking a survey,
  • improve user experience (for example, by collecting and using device and browser information from Respondents to improve how our survey service operates on those devices and in those browsers), and
  • identify insightful data trends (which never identify any individuals).
  •  

3.3 Visitor

 

We process personal data about you where:

You will also receive marketing communications from us if you have consented to this at the point where you provided your information. We will always provide you with the means to opt-out of this marketing at any time.

  • Cookies and similar technology.

We or third party data and advertising platforms that we work with may use or combine multiple technologies, such as cookies, page tags, mobile identifiers and IP addresses to infer users’ common identities across different services and multiple devices such as tablets, browsers, and mobile phones. We may do so, for instance, to tailor ads to users, to enable us to determine the success of our advertising campaigns and to improve upon them. These third party data and advertising platforms may sometimes use data that we provide to them in order to improve their technologies and their ability to match common devices to users.

Examples

To personalize marketing campaigns run through third party advertisers and help MathsGee measure online advertising success and to deliver ads for our services based on user preferences. See our cookies section. If you do not want MathsGee to use this information to serve you targeted ads about our services, you may indicate your preferences at https://preferences-mgr.truste.com/ or, if you are located in the European Union, at https://www.youronlinechoices.eu/.

6. Cookies

We and our partners use cookies and similar technologies on our websites. For more information see our Cookies Policy. For information about cookies used in our surveys please see Cookies used on Survey Pages. If you are a customer of MathsGee and separately use cookies or similar technologies in conjunction with any of our products and services, then you yourself will be responsible for complying with any laws related to the use of those technologies and this Privacy Policy is not applicable to that use by you.

We use certain cookies, as described in our Cookies Policy and here in our Privacy Policy, that you agree to when you use our sites and, in the case of some cookies, for legitimate interests of delivering and optimizing our services (where the cookie delivers essential functionality). Cookies are small bits of data we store on the device you use to access our services so we can recognize repeat users. Each cookie expires after a certain period of time, depending on what we use it for. We use cookies and similar technologies for several reasons:

  • To gather metrics about your survey taking experience.

For example, we will collect data about the number of clicks it took Respondents to complete a survey, whether they left and returned to a survey, whether they skipped parts of a survey and how long it took to complete the survey and other details about the survey taking. However, this information is collated and kept at an aggregated and anonymized level only.

  • To make our site easier to use.

Creators if you use the “Remember me” feature when you sign into your account, we store your username in a cookie to make it quicker for you to sign in whenever you return to MathsGee.

  • For security reasons.

We use cookies to authenticate your identity and confirm whether you are currently logged into MathsGee or determine if an incident impacts you.

  • To provide you with personalized content.

We store user preferences, your default language, device and browser information, your profile information which includes, the level of usage of service and the web-pages on our site which you visit, so we can identify you across devices and personalize the content you see.

  • To improve our services.

We use cookies to measure your usage of our websites and track referral data, as well as to occasionally display different versions of content to you. This information helps us to develop and improve our services (it helps us focus on the parts of the service you seem most interested in) and optimize the content we display to you (which may include marketing content).

  • To advertise to you.

We, or our service providers and other third parties we work with, place cookies when you visit our website and other websites or when you open emails that we send you, in order to provide you with more tailored marketing content (about our services or other services), and to evaluate whether this content is useful or effective. For instance, we evaluate which ads are clicked on most often, and whether those clicks lead users to make better use of our tools, features and services. If you don’t want to receive ads that are tailored to you based on your online activity, you may “opt out” of many of the companies that are involved in such tailoring by going to https://www.aboutads.infohttps://preferences-mgr.truste.com/ or, if you’re located in the European Union, at https://www.youronlinechoices.eu. Opting out in this way does not mean you will not receive any ads; it just means that you will not receive ads from such companies that have been tailored to you based on your activities and inferred preferences.

  • Google Analytics.

In addition to the above, we have implemented on our websites and other services certain Google Analytics features that support Display Advertising, including re-targeting. Visitors to our websites may opt out of certain types of Google Analytics tracking, customize the Google Display Network ads by using the Google Ad Preferences Manager and learn more about how Google serves ads by viewing its Customer Ads Help Center. If you do not wish to participate in Google Analytics, you may also download the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on.

You can choose to remove or disable cookies via your browser settings.

7. Security

If you hold an account with MathsGee we do not delete the data in your account – you are responsible for and control the time periods for which you retain this data. There are controls in your account where you can delete data at the account level (all data in your account) and at the response level. If you are a Respondent, you will need to ask the Creator how long your responses will be stored in MathsGee services.

We also describe the expiry periods for cookies on our websites in our cookies policy.

9. 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). MathsGee 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.

10. Data Transfers and Privacy Shield Certification

Your information and data may be processed in and transferred or disclosed in the United States and countries in which our affiliates are located and in which our service providers are located or have servers. You can view where our affiliates are located on the Office Locations page. We ensure that the recipient of your Personal Data offers an adequate level of protection, for instance by entering into the appropriate back-to-back agreements and, if required, we offer our Data Processing Agreement with standard contractual clauses for the transfer of data as approved by the European Commission.

EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield.

MathsGee Research participates in and has certified its compliance with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield. MathsGee is committed to subjecting all personal information received from the European Union (EU) member countries and Switzerland, in reliance on the Privacy Shield Framework, to the Framework’s applicable Principles. To learn more about the Privacy Shield Framework, visit the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Privacy Shield List. https://www.privacyshield.gov/.

MathsGee also complies with the Privacy Shield Principles for all onward transfers of personal data from the EU and Switzerland, including the onward transfer liability provisions.

When MathsGee receives personal information under the Privacy Shield and then transfers it to a third-party service provider acting as agent on MathsGee’s behalf, MathsGee has certain liability under the Privacy Shield if both (i) the agent processes the information in a manner inconsistent with the Privacy Shield and (ii) MathsGee is responsible for the event giving rise to the damage. In certain situations, MathsGee may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

MathsGee is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. Please contact MathsGee as described in Section 14 below if you have any concerns or complaints of any nature. If you have an unresolved privacy or data use concern that we have not addressed satisfactorily, please contact our U.S.-based third party dispute resolution provider, (free of charge) at https://www.jamsadr.com/file-an-eu-us-privacy-shield-claim.

Under certain conditions, more fully described on the Privacy Shield website https://www.privacyshield.gov/article?id=How-to-Submit-a-Complaint, you may invoke binding arbitration when other dispute resolution procedures have been exhausted.

11. Changes to our Privacy Policy

We can make changes to this Privacy Policy 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.

12. Personalized marketing

You can opt-out from direct marketing in your account and we provide opt-out options in all direct marketing emails. Finally, if you do not wish to see personalized marketing content on the web related to our service you can clear the cookies in your browser settings. See our Help Center article on how to do this here.

13. Who is my data controller?

As mentioned above – all response data at an individual level is controlled by the Creator. MathsGee can be a data controller of data about Respondents only in the very limited ways described in the section here called “How we use the information we collect - Respondent”. To the extent that is the case we have identified the correct controller below.

For Creators, Respondents, Website Visitors and Panel who are addressed in this privacy policy and who are located outside the United States, your data controller is MathsGee to the extent that it is processing your personal data. For Usabilla please see section 16.4.

Creator

 

Where you hold an account with any MathsGee service, you are entitled to a copy of all personal data which we hold in relation to you.

You can access a lot of your data in your own account when you log in. If you want to exercise your rights, please contact us here.

By way of reminder, MathsGee also enables you to export your own response data from our system in a variety of formats so that you can back it up, or use it with other applications.

Respondent

 

Where you have responded to a survey, form, questionnaire or application sent to you by a Creator, using a MathsGee 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. MathsGee does not control your response data and, accordingly, is not in a position to directly handle these requests in relation to that data.
