Privacy Policy

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we need it.
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.

Below is our privacy policy, which incorporates these goals:

Dobility, Inc. (“Dobility”) operates several websites including and It is Dobility’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Dobility collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Dobility’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Dobility’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Dobility may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Dobility also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged-in users. Dobility only discloses logged-in user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Dobility’s websites choose to interact with Dobility in ways that require Dobility to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Dobility gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, visitors who choose to use the e-survey tools at are asked to provide a username, email address, and other personal information. Dobility collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Dobility. Dobility does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Dobility may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Dobility may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Dobility does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Dobility discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Dobility’s behalf or to provide services available at Dobility’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Dobility’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Dobility will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Dobility discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Dobility believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Dobility, third parties, or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Dobility website and have supplied your email address, Dobility may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Dobility and our products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Dobility takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Integrations with Google and Other Outside Systems

Dobility's products, like SurveyCTO, often involve the collection and use of data, and Dobility aspires to make it easy to integrate its products with other cloud-based products. For example, in SurveyCTO, there are options to publish collected data into Zapier, Google Sheets, Google Fusion Tables, or other outside systems. This requires that Dobility products, using open standards and explicit authorization from users, access outside systems and documents in these outside systems. In general, Dobility does not use access to these outside systems in any way other than those specifically directed by users. In particular, Dobility does not access, store, or utilize users' data from outside systems except to the extent directed by the user and necessary to deliver the services configured by the user.

For example, SurveyCTO users are given the option to publish incoming data to Google Sheets or Google Fusion Tables, which requires that users login with their Google accounts and specifically authorize SurveyCTO to access Google Sheets and/or Fusion Table documents. In order to publish incoming data, SurveyCTO, through its Google Service Account, writes to those documents selected by the user, based on the user's authorization. Dobility does not store any Google profile information and does not access or store data except to the extent necessary to deliver services as configured by the user. Once data is published into Google documents, that data then becomes governed by Google's privacy policy.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns.

Dobility visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Dobility’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Dobility’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Dobility, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Dobility goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Dobility may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
