Jibunu Privacy Policy

Jibunu programs research tools such as online surveys and interview tools for market researchers.  The data gathered from these tools is collected on behalf of our clients. Jibunu is committed to protecting the privacy of all information gathered, especially any and all personal information of research participants using these tools.  Jibunu is also committed to protecting the personal information of any person using Jibunu’s website and reporting tools.  This policy applies to all client and respondent personal information that we collect or use in the course of conducting our business.

In most cases, Jibunu is the processor of the information, meaning that we are acting on behalf of our client, the controller, to collect and store data. Research participants should also refer to the privacy policy of the controller, which could be a research company or sample provider, that invited you to participate in the research to fully understand how your data is used. Client Information

We treat all information we receive from clients as confidential and do not use the information for any purpose other than to fulfill our obligations to those clients. We keep client information secure at all times, and have strict policies against the use and disclosure of it by our employees or any third parties.

Sharing Information

We collect data on behalf of our research clients for research purposes only, and our use of that information will be limited to that purpose.

Jibunu will not rent, sell or share any information to any third party for the purpose of directly marketing any products or services. In some cases we may need to share information gathered with third parties that provide research services in support of the research project. Imperium’s RelevantID is used for duplicate respondent detection and data quality. Other third parties may be used for services such as open end coding and translation or creating crosstab reports. Any third party that receives personal information is obligated to follow all of the same privacy protection regulations as followed by Jibunu and the research company. Under the Privacy Shield Frameworks, Jibunu may remain liable in cases on onward transfer to third parties. If you have any questions regarding the third parties used for these services, you can contact Jibunu using the contact information listed under Privacy Shield. 

Information is typically used and analyzed in aggregate, meaning that the data is combined together and analyzed as a whole to look for trends, impact, and general preferences.

Under certain circumstances permitted or required by law (for example, in connection with national security or law enforcement requirements), we may be required to disclose client data or personal information without giving notice.

Collecting Information


Personal information may be collected via two methods.  The first method is actively through questions in the survey or research tool.  The information gathered will depend on the needs of the researcher and research project.  Information collected may include items such as your name, phone number, address, gender, ethnicity, income or other demographic data.  Depending on the nature of the research these questions may also include items related to your health, lifestyle, personal preferences or other items.

The second method is a passive collection that happens automatically through the system tools.  Information gathered in this manner will include items regarding the device being used to access the online tools such as cookies, IP address, browser, browser version, operating system (Mac/PC/Windows), and referring pages.

Certain public information about your web browser, operating system version, browser version, screen resolutions and display information may be collected by Imperium’s RelevantID Technology for determining duplicate respondent and potential data fraud.  Data collected by Imperium specifically excludes the content of any Survey, the content of the responses to questions in any Survey and any personally identifiable information other than your publicly available IP address.  Please review the Imperium Privacy Policy at http://www.imperium.com/privacy/ .


As a client or vendor of Jibunu, information may also be collected actively through sign up and usage of JUMP (Jibunu Unified Management Platform). We collect basic account information such as email, name, company, and other data needed to provide you with secure access to our services.


When collecting information on children under the age of 13, the research company is responsible for obtaining consent from the parent or guardian of the child.  This is usually, but not always, handled through question(s) in the survey.  Jibunu will not actively request or collect information on or from a child under the age of 13 without consent.

Opting Out


As a research participant you have the right to opt out of participating in any survey at any time.  You can also opt out of receiving email notifications from the sender of the email.

If Jibunu deployed the email notification on behalf of the researcher, you may choose to opt out of email notifications by clicking on the opt out link in the email.  If you do this, Jibunu will add you to the opt out list and you will not receive any further communication from Jibunu for that study.  This will not opt you out of all email notifications from that researcher or sample provider, or from Jibunu on behalf of other researchers. In order to opt out of all notifications from those companies, you must contact each company directly.


You can request to have your account and information deleted at any time. You can also be added to a do not contact list for JUMP. If you would like to delete your account and/or be added to this list, please contact your project manager.

Accessing and Updating Information or Limiting the Use and Disclosure of Your Data

You have the right to access, remove, change, or limit the use and disclosure of any of your personal information.  To access or make changes to any personal information that Jibunu has collected, or to limit the use and disclosure of the information, email us at support@jibunu.com and we will assist you to the best of our ability as quickly as possible.  In most cases, Jibunu only associates data with a unique identifier without any other access or link to other personal information that the researcher may have.  In such cases, we will send your request to the researcher and or sample provider.

Information Security

We maintain all necessary physical, electronic and procedural security measures to help safeguard data and personal information.  Any information that is transmitted or backed up is encrypted and all connections to the data are encrypted.  In addition, any interactions with the data require an authentication to gain access.  Third parties that provide us with support or services are required to similarly protect personal information from unauthorized access.

Data Retention


Data related to surveys stored by Jibunu, including data files, are encrypted and securely stored with restricted access on servers located in the United States. Data is available for up to six months after a survey closes, unless otherwise required by the terms of our contract for data collection. After that time, the data in the database, all data files, and all sample files are destroyed. Once data has been destroyed it cannot be retrieved. Jibunu’s clients may have different policies for how they retain data. Please refer to the researcher for more information on their policy.


Information associated with your account will be kept as long as it is necessary to provide the services or until you ask us to delete your account.

Jibunu complies with the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Frameworks as set forth by the US Department of Commerce, under the enforcement authority of the Federal Trade Commission, regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information from European Union member countries, the United Kingdom, and Switzerland.
