ON-LINE SURVEY INSTRUMENTS
On-line survey providers, such as Survey Monkey when accessed through personal accounts, that have their servers located in the US are subject to the USA Freedom Act. If you choose to use one of these providers, you must inform your research participants that their responses are being stored on US servers and are subject to the USA Freedom Act.
We recommend that you use a provider that houses its data on servers in Canada. Faculty may access Survey Monkey through Trinity's institutional account, which houses its data in Canada.
