- Savedon external web server : it need the installation, on server side, of a couple of "cgi script" that enable server to gather results sent to the quiz page and the results visualization. The web server could be installed also on own PC.
- Send quiz results by email , in two ways : directly from quiz page, but it is deprecated because unrealiable and unsafe, and indirectly, using a "form mail" script, that it need to be installed on a mail server.
- Saved on the "Cloud" (own personal storing space on Google Drive)
