No personal identifiers such as name or email address are saved in RESULT
RESULT is committed to complying with the principles of the Data Protection Act, 1998, in the processing of all personal data.
What information do we collect?
RESULT does not require any personal information - it was deliberately set up that way. The anonymous data are stored electronically by SurveyGizmo. No personal identifiers, including name, email address, IP address and geo-locator, are stored. We do ask for age and gender to help with understanding assessments - optional.
Users may choose to email their test results to themselves or third parties. No email addresses are stored by SurveyGizmo. No promotional or other unsolicited information is sent out using this email.
What happens to the results of tests?
The responses to RESULT questionnaires are stored anonymously and cannot, therefore be retrieved at a later date. It is 😀 STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that you create a private portfolio of any assessments or tasks that you complete on RESULT. It is ⚠️ NOT ADVISED that you publish on social media. To save your results email them to yourself or a trusted friend or helper. You can then:
- Keep the email in a folder with your email provider
- Download the email and save on a hard drive
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 the agency name (at the end of tests/measures) and may give a code for a helper. Anonymity remains as described above..
What are cookies and how do we use them?
Cookies are small amounts of information that are sent from a web server to your browser, stored on your computer's hard drive and contain basic information relating to an internet site you have visited. Google Analytics is used to allow RESULT to track site visits and to record usage trends over time. Google Analytics uses a cookie to help track which pages are accessed. The cookie contains no personal identifiable information, but it does use your computer’s IP address to determine where in the world you are accessing the site from, and to track your page visits within the site.
