Research like a professional.

What do your fellow students think? What’s the opinion of your research group? Does your hypothesis stand up to being squeezed by many? Whether you’re writing an undergraduate dissertation, a master's thesis or a doctorate, there are many questions to answer. An online questionnaire is the best effective tool for this. LimeSurvey lets you create your survey in just a few minutes, without any previous experience.

And it doesn’t have to cost a lot. On LimeSurvey, students receive an incredible 50% discount!

Frequently asked questions

We are very concerned about security. Your survey/response data is stored in a separate database with a separate username/password for each LimeSurvey Cloud instance. The connection of your browser to our servers is also encrypted using SSL.

The data inside LimeSurvey is by default not encrypted because it is regularly accessed by the LimeSurvey application (it is not at rest); however, you can configure responses to certain question types to be always encrypted at rest. Moreover, for participant data, you can select certain fields to be always encrypted.

Furthermore, we create daily backups of your LimeSurvey data. That data is at rest and encrypted, stored safely on a different drive, but at the same hosting location.

If you cancel your subscription, you will continue to have access to all features of your plan for the time period you already paid (this is the same for LimeSurvey ComfortUpdate and LimeSurvey Cloud). If you are using LimeSurvey Cloud and the subscription has expired, you will fall back to the Free package. You will still be able to access all collected responses and use all features of the Free version.
