Some thoughts:
Pete, Thanks for bringing this up here and taking action on meta. I was 
concerned seeing the link to a commercial company in the central notice banner.

I am wondering why the wmf can't set up a own survey. For example using 
https://www.limesurvey.org/en/ 
(https://www.limesurvey.org/en/about-limesurvey/license)

To protect users privacy third party services shouldn't be used, especially in 
central noticed.

It would be worth knowing if the wmf needs to pay for that survey stuff.

I am also wondering what's the benefit of this survey, but that's a other 
question...

Best,
:-)
