Why? Because providing the best opportunities for education and developing knowledge is important to us. We therefore offer universities all the tools they need for extensive studies, to implement experimental designs or to just run simple LifeSurveys. Try it today!

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.

We are very concerned about security. Your survey/response data is stored in a separate database with a separate user name/password for each LimeSurvey Cloud instance. The connection is encrypted if you are using SSL connections (that is the default — visible by https:// prepending your survey links).

The data inside LimeSurvey is not encrypted because it is regularly accessed by the LimeSurvey application (it is not at rest).

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

Think one step ahead.
