uSPEQ takes privacy and data security very seriously. All surveys are private and confidential; respondents’ identities will never be disclosed. Privacy protections include:
The privacy of subscriber organizations is also protected. uSPEQ does not provide any data or summary reports to third parties, including CARF International. uSPEQ operates as a separate division of CARF and has its own staff. CARF staff and surveyors are not made aware that an organization is a uSPEQ subscriber, and they cannot access an organization’s uSPEQ data. Being a uSPEQ subscriber does not affect an organization’s final accreditation decision.
uSPEQ data are stored in a database that adheres to data-security best practices. Paper surveys are kept in secure storage and are periodically destroyed via secure shredding.
