Anonymization of Respondent Data in Online Surveys

Learn how to anonymize survey respondent data, but successfully track completion

We’ve create a helpful worksheet to get you started. We’ll walk you through the steps to upload your respondent database to Snap WebHost. From there, you’ll be able to send an email invitation that includes a unique respondent identifier.

You will be unable to match the survey responses to a given respondent.  You can, however, track whether a given respondent has responded and if not, send them reminder emails.

This worksheet is part of our GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) series of worksheets. The GDPR applies only to personal data. The obligations under the GDPR do not apply to anonymous data. We offer several options to anonymize your surveys, including the option to run anonymous surveys using Snap WebHost.
