Privacy Policy

This privacy policy is effective as of 26 January 2022. 

 

Seven Marches LLC (“Seven Marches”, or “we” or “us”), which operates ParentPulse and www.parentpulse.com, is committed to respecting your privacy and protecting your personal information. Our privacy policy describes how we capture and use the personal information that we gather about visitors to this website and users of our products and services. Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal information and how we will treat it.

 

Seven Marches provides products and services which enable our customers to create and administer surveys. We may host our customers’ surveys on our servers and collect the responses to those surveys on their behalf. Our customers may also upload contact information of potential survey respondents to invite them to participate in a survey. We refer to this contact information and responses as “Survey Data”. Our customers remain data controllers of this Survey Data.

 

Seven Marches acts as data controller in relation to all personal information other than Survey Data. If you are a survey respondent, the data controller of the Survey Data is our customer who invited you to participate in the survey. For all other information, your data controller is Seven Marches LLC.

 

If you have any questions, comments or complaints regarding our privacy policy or practices, please contact us at info@parentpulse.com.

 

Our privacy practices differ depending on whether you fall into one of two categories, so we have created different policies for each of these, accessible from the links below:
