Screening out real location of survey respondents even if they use VPN
Dear Qualtrics Community,
For my survey, I am trying to exclude all respondents who are not from the Germany, even if they might use a VPN. Therefore I am using ipdata to detect the location of the respondent. Everyone who is not from the Germany should be automatically excluded from the survey. However, if I test the link of the survey, sometimes I am excluded and sometimes not. If I save the ip address, I can see that it is always a 52. address that is not the actual address of my computer, but belongs apparently to some amazon company in Frankfurt or sometimes to some location in Ireland. I do not understand where Qualtrics or IPdata get this IP address from. Has anyone here encountered a similar problem and maybe solved it? I would really appreciate some help. Below you can also see how I use the webservice for that and how I set the embedded data and everything. For the api-key, I am using an actual key not the XXXXX that you see in the foto.
Thank you and cheers,
