Enketo LLC. (“Enketo”) operates several websites including enketo.org, and enk.to. It is Enketo’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Enketo collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Enketo’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Enketo’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Enketo may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Enketo also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on WordPress.com blogs. Enketo only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Certain visitors to Enketo’s websites choose to interact with Enketo in ways that require Enketo to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Enketo gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Enketo – by purchasing access to the service, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Enketo collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Enketo. Enketo does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
The Enketo Data Entry Client, including all different formats of its webforms, routes submissions of survey data to the user's OpenRosa-compliant server that hosts the XML Form and Aggregates its data. During this process the survey data, including any submitted media files, is saved on Enketo's server for a brief moment until either a response was received from the OpenRosa server or the submission timed out, after which it is immediately deleted from the server.
If Enketo's API is used to pass data from the OpenRosa server to a webform (for editing, updating e.g.), this data will be temporarily cached in Enketo's database. The returned webform URL will remain accessible for a maximum of 1 minute, after which the cached data is deleted.
Enketo may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Enketo may monitor the most popular pages on the enketo.org site or use spam screened by the Disqus service to help identify spam on its blog. Enketo may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Enketo does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Enketo discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Enketo’s behalf or to provide services available at Enketo’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Enketo’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Enketo will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Enketo discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Enketo believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Enketo, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Enketo website and have supplied your email address, Enketo may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Enketo and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Enketo takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Enketo, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Enketo goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Enketo may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
