Security of personal data
All the data collected from you on our site is protected against unauthorised access by the website hosts 🌐 Squarespace and 🌐 SurveyGizmo. We do not sell, trade or rent the information we get from you on this site to others.
What happens to the results of self assessments?
On a desktop or laptop you can download a PDF of feedback from your assessments; saving a PDF on phones or tablets depends on the device. You can also email a PDF to yourself or a trusted friend or helper and then:
Keep the email in a folder with your email provider
Download the email and save on a hard drive
Self assessments do not require any personal information - RESULT was deliberately set up that way. No personal identifiers, including name, email address, IP address and geo-locator, are stored with your self assessment data. We do ask for age and gender to help with understanding assessments and who is using the website - giving this information is optional.
Users may choose to email their assessments to themselves or third parties. No email addresses are stored. No promotional or other unsolicited information is sent out using your email. The responses to RESULT assessments are stored anonymously and cannot, therefore be retrieved at a later date.
Sharing test results
Self completion scales have limitations. Accuracy depends on a truly honest approach to completing scales and there are things that cannot be done online. If you are concerned at all you might want to share the results of any tests you complete:
see your doctor to check out your health - infections such as hepatitis or HIV, or get liver function tests done
self completion scales alone should not be seen as diagnostic - confirm possible mental illness with an addiction psychiatrist or psychologist
discuss the meaning of the results to questionnaires with a therapist - you can find a therapist online or get help from your local services
What if you are using this through an organisation?
Organisations may have an arrangement with RESULT to receive reports on activity by their service users. The organisation will ask their service users to enter a code (at the end of assessments): the code has six characters. Anonymity remains as described above..
