Just like when you share information by email or elsewhere on the web, information you share on Floq can be re-shared. This means that if you share something on Floq, anyone who can see it can share it with others. Content and information that you can choose to make public includes:

  1. Surveys: if you design a great survey you may want to share it with the community so others can use it too. If you do this a template of your survey and the set of questions associated with it will be available for others to use and alter. Your responses against this survey and the associated questions will never be available to other Users, and any alterations they may make to your survey will never effect your original. We might also recommend this survey template to others that may find it useful.
  2. GPS: When we get your GPS location, we put it together with other location information we have about you (like your current city).


14.   Public Content

When we use the phrase “Public Content”, we mean the information and content that you choose to share with the public, as well as information and content that is always publicly available. Choosing to make your content public is exactly what it sounds like: anyone, including people off of Floq, will be able to see it.

  1. Choosing to make your information public also means that this information:
    • can be associated with you (i.e., your name, profile picture, etc.) even outside Floq
    • can show up when someone does a search on Floq or on a public search engine
    • will be accessible to anyone who uses our API.
  2. As a general rule, you should assume that if you do not see a sharing icon, the information will be publicly available.


15.   Information that is publicly available

The types of information listed below are always publicly available, and are treated just like information you decided to make public.

  1. Questions: questions that you create in Floq are automatically added to our Question Pool, available for all Users to use in their surveys. Floq should automatically pick up when you add identifying information such as names of people, groups or products. These are then made private and only viewable by you and your respondents. If you are uncomfortable sharing your questions, you can always deactivate or delete your account.
  2. No. of Responses: the number of responses against an individual question are always publically available.
  3. Demographic Data: we only provide demographic data, such as age range (e.g., 18-21), locale (e.g., en-US), and gender to you and other Users corresponding to individual question responses after we have removed names, email addresses and any other personally identifying information from it, and have combined it with other people’s data in a way that it is no longer associated with you.
  4. If you do not want others to receive this information about you, you can turn off all demographic data using your Privacy Settings.


16.   Responding to legal requests

  1. We may share your information in response to a legal request (like a search warrant, court order or subpoena) if we have a good faith belief that the law requires us to do so.
