ETVIA in Australia is committed to treating the personal information we collect in accordance with the Australian Privacy Principles in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (the Privacy Act). This Privacy Policy sets out how ETVIA handles personal information.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to personal information collected by ETVIA that is exempted under the Privacy Act, for example employee records.

ETVIA, unless instructed otherwise by the client organisation prior to the undertaking of the survey process, will not attribute your survey results with your identity. If such an instruction was made by the client organisation the participant would be advised of this and evaluate for themselves if they wish to complete and submit the survey. Unlabelled results and aggregated results may be used for the purposes of understanding cultural and dialogue patterns across a team.
