Survey Security & Privacy

Qualtrics may be used to store and transmit Low, Moderate, and High Risk Data, as defined by the Information Security Office, and summzarized in the right column.

As an application permitted to handle PHI, Qualtrics follows strict minimum security standards, however that does not relieve Stanford or its employees, partners, consultants, or vendors of further obligations that may be imposed by law, regulation or contract. 

Below are some practices you can implement to add more security to your surveys.

Data Classifications

Low Risk

The data is intended for public disclosure

Moderate Risk

The data is not generally available to the public

High Risk

Protection of the data is required by law/regulation
