We present risks in relation to privacy issues; based on an analysis of the Design Feedback Tool (DFT); an application (in development) for conducting large scale surveys. The DFT combines features from traditional questionnaires with elements from social networking sites. The analysis was performed according to the CORAS method for security risk analysis. We show how the CORAS method was applied for analysing privacy in the DFT; how this analysis influenced the solution; and how privacy issues of the system are addressed.
