Survey Privacy Policy

Data Submission Security Process

Each participating employer will create an account on the Momentive platform, or use an existing account to complete the Fair360, formerly DiversityInc Top 50 Companies application.

Data Storage

The web-based survey tool, the statistical-analysis tools and all data submissions are on three separate dedicated servers at a leading IT company that deploys a multi-layered physical security approach. Company-submitted data is retained for year-to-year aggregate trending information.

Access to Data at Fair360

Administrative access is limited to select Fair360, formerly DiversityInc employees on a need-to-know basis and credentials are changed every 30 days.

Confidentiality Agreements

Because of the volume of participants, we will not sign individual confidentiality agreements. This published statement applies to all companies submitting data.

Fair360 Subpoenas and Lawsuits

The Fair360, formerly DiversityInc Top 50 survey is an editorial process and, therefore, is subject to state laws on source confidentiality. Fair360 is headquartered in Florida which has well-established shield laws to protect source privacy. In the 22 years we have been managing the survey, we have never agreed to even cooperate with a lawsuit in 19 years of running the survey. If subpoenaed, we will protect your confidential data to the fullest extent permitted by law and provide you prior notice of any disclosures, unless prohibited by law.

How Fair360 Survey Data is Analyzed

We use cloud-based survey and statistical software and have developed algorithms to evaluate and analyze the data we collect. The evaluation is metrics-driven. We measure respondents’ answers based on their assessment against other organizations with similar workforces. For more on the methodology of the ranking, please click on the methodology link in the navigation bar.

Credibility of Submission

We require the CEO, CHRO or another corporate officer to sign every submission (notarized). This applies to all companies and organizations.

EEO-1 Information

We give extra credit to companies that either send us a link to a public disclosure of their EEO-1 numbers or send us the information separately. We will not publish their EEO-1 data. The EEO-1 data will be compared with the Fair360 submission.

We only publish information about companies that make the Fair360, formerly DiversityInc Top 50 list or one of our Specialty Lists. Any information that is shared is positive and does not disclose human capital, supplier diversity and/or philanthropy spend related data.
