Parental Satisfaction Survey Confidentiality
Because of its significant importance of parent satisfaction survey research, GraceWorks will never collect parental contact information of any kind on its ongoing parental satisfaction surveys. This is our firm policy — no exceptions — regardless of the wishes of any particular school.Anyone taking the Parent Satisfaction and Referral Survey can remain completely confidential by simply indicating that their responses are confidential. In this case, token numbers are NOT reported back to the school, accept to indicate who has and has not taken the survey.
Parental Confidentiality in Other GraceWorks Research
For marketing, pre-campaign studies, and all GraceWorks’ parental research, all schools must give GraceWorks Ministries written permission to collect any parental information. Upon the completion of research, this information is removed from all computers, and stored in locked archival files for both the benefit of the client, as well as possible meta or longitudinal research later. Parent contact information is never shared with anyone in any way.In addition, in conducting parental and other research, GraceWorks assumes by default that all information collected from parents is confidential unless parents themselves proactively give us permission to share their concern specifically with their school. For electronic surveys, confidentiality is the default answer, and is assumed if parents do not answer the confidentiality question.
As a matter of Christian stewardship, our goal is to never contact people by email, regular mail, phone call, visit or otherwise if they do not wish it. To the greatest extent possible, we intend to acquire new clients through word of mouth — or word of mouse — referrals.
Information Collection Procedures
The purpose of collecting information about you or your school is to help you serve your Christian school better, as well as to help Christian schools in general. It is our policy and practice to only collect information that is essential to helping Christian schools.The amount of information GraceWorks collects about you is directly proportional to the depth of relationship we have with you.Consistent with what we recommend to all clients, GraceWorks will only send you emails if you have invited us to do so by expressing interest or need in an area that directly relates to GraceWorks’ mission and work.
In both client training and publications, GraceWorks uses the case study approach pioneered by Harvard Business School. However in so doing, your situation will never be shared in a way that can be traced back to your school specifically.With that one exception, all other client information remains confidential to the same degree you require of your own employees and board members.
Removal From Further Communication
It is the policy of GraceWorks to immediately remove from further communication anyone who requests the same. To be removed, simply reply to any email communication with “remove” in the subject line.
Credit Card Information
At the present time, GraceWorks uses PayPal for all electronic transactions. PayPal is widely recognized as the leading payment processor in the world. Only PayPal sees your credit card information; GraceWorks does not collect or maintain any credit card information. If orders are phoned in, these are immediately entered into GraceWorks’ PayPal shopping cart.
