The personal information we collect
If you're a recent graduate who completes the survey, we'll ask you for some identifying information, such as your name, date of birth, where you studied and what you studied. You can elect to provide your email address and you may also provide us with personal information if you contact us or if we contact you.
If you win a prize, we may ask you to consent to being photographed for publicity purposes and, if you consent, your photograph and name may be published in marketing material through our marketing channels.
The Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) is the entity that will hold your personal information. We take good care of it and have systems and processes in place to protect it.
If you're only viewing information on the site, you do not need to provide any personal information to us.
Why we collect the personal information
We need the survey-related personal information mentioned above to verify certain enrolment information. Only verifiable responses will be publishable (in anonymised form) on the survey results pages. If you provide your email address, we may endeavour to contact you if we are unable to verify the relevant enrolment information or to let you know about other surveys you are able to complete.
We control the disclosure of personal information. We may disclose survey results data (including your personal information) to one or more education agencies or otherwise as permitted by law (eg, for research or statistical purposes). Importantly, information that could identify you will not be published. We will only be publishing anonymised results.
We collect non-identifying statistical information about visits to this site. Site statistics allow us to assess the number of visitors to different sections of the site, identify what information is of interest, monitor system performance and help us make the site more useful to visitors.
