teamecho always stores responses, results and feedback completely anonymously. Server-side anonymized data storage is a unique selling point and firmly anchored in our principles.
teamecho guarantees the maximum anonymity of all participants. Server-side anonymized data storage means that responses to surveys are not stored in our database in a way that can be traced back to individual users. The results are therefore not only encrypted, but actually anonymized. In our database, we separate the information that someone participated in the survey at a certain interval from the actual content of the survey (the feedback results).
Even the aggregated data is only displayed when a certain response rate has been reached. By default, results are displayed from five submitted surveys - but this threshold can be easily adjusted by administrators to your individual requirements.
Team assignment of answers
The correct allocation of answers to the respective teams of a company is ensured by the division into teams and departments in your teamecho account. All survey results are only ever visible cumulatively at team or department level. Since anonymization does not only occur at the display level, but already at the server level in the database, even teamecho GmbH as a service provider has no way of tracing how individual users voted or commented.
Anonymous participation despite registration
Registration or login is therefore required to ensure that all employees vote in the correct company account, the responses are stored in the correct teams, and all users can see the correct teamecho dashboards for their respective teams. At no point is it possible to track how an individual employee voted. Registration also ensures that each email address can only vote once per survey interval. This only stores whether a registered email address has participated in a particular interval, but not how, because the response expressions and comments are stored separately from the registered users in the process.
