Anonymity and data protection

All surveys as well as the evaluations and analyses of the Office for Quality Management in Teaching are carried out in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations. All feedback is anonymised; the EvaSys software used ( guarantees the possibility of anonymous surveys.

All online surveys of the Office for Quality Management in Teaching, to which you are invited by e-mail, are carried out anonymously using an automatically generated code that authorises you to cast only one vote. The code that you receive by e-mail with the invitation enables you to access the survey securely and individually. There is no connection between the access code and your survey data. It would only be theoretically possible to identify a specific person or their re-registration by selecting certain combinations of characteristics (e.g. age, gender, semester, degree programme, etc.) in the raw data of the database, which is not accessible to either the lecturers or the administrators. The University of Innsbruck assures you that this option will not be used.

As access to this data is not possible, no changes can be made to the evaluation at a later date if incorrect information is inadvertently provided. The automated report generation for the survey will only be started if the survey has been completed by at least three people.
