We host, but not access such survey response information, unless in connection with technical support, to review the terms of use policy, or with the consent of the account owner who conducted the survey or due to special circumstances like complying with a law enforcement request. Throughout the website, DCA Survey provides tips and rules on how our tools should be used. However, we cannot control the data processing practices of our users and we do not assume any responsibility for actions of our users who conduct surveys or of any other third parties.
