Co-founder EQ FAQ

What is the purpose of Co-founder EQ

Co-founder EQ is a Slack app that helps users track their relationship with their co-founder(s). The survey consists of 24 multiple choice questions that ask users to rate their perceptions about the relationship. These questions are an adapted subset of a longer survey that was first developed by the Gottman Institute targeting intimate partners. Once complete, responses are merged and scored in order to generate recommended activities for strengthening the relationship.

What information do you share

We will never share the information we gather with outside third parties. The information is only collected for your personal use in order to provide an interpretation at the conclusion of the survey.

If we are required by law to comply with a subpoena or similar legal process, we will share the information requested to the best of our ability. However, the information we store is anonymized, which limits our ability to target specific records for named users. Please refer to the Co-founder EQ Privacy Policy for more information.

Can I take the survey more than once

Yes, you can take the survey multiple times. This is especially useful if you have more than one co-founder or if you want to take the survey at later date. We recommend taking it every 6 months as a good way to get a sense of your evolving relationship over time.

How do I delete my account

Co-founder EQ is a Slack app. If you wish to uninstall it, we recommend that you first issue a Slack command to delete any survey responses you may have entered while using the app. Say “/eq cancel” to show the necessary prompt within Slack.

Once you have deleted your personal information, you can delete the Cofounder EQ Slack app by removing it from your workspace as Slack recommends.
