Your Information

We use PollDaddy to collect survey information. PollDaddy has created a GDPR Access Tool to help owners of quizzes, polls and other surveys with GDPR information access requests from respondents to their polls, surveys and quizzes.

This tool allows respondents to look up and request deletion of information about their responses and related personal information. Delete requests are accompanied by your email address and country where you are making the request.
