What personal data we collect and why we collect it

For those users who are visiting our websites:

From time to time, we may invite visitors to our website to contact us with questions they may have about our service offerings, to submit a resume in response to job opportunities or to participate in online surveys in which we ask various demographic or product preference-related questions. This information will be used for purposes of improving our site, keeping you informed about our latest products and services, or responding to your inquiry. Your participation is entirely voluntary.

For those users who take our assessments and questionnaires:

In addition to providing general contact information such as name and email address, those who take our assessments and questionnaires may be asked to provide information which includes, but is not limited to, gender, ethnicity, nationality, work experience (e.g., years of experience) and educational background (e.g., highest degree obtained). These additional questions are always optional and you will not be required to provide this information to use services. The answers that you do give are stored on a secure database. However they are not presented with your results, nor are they disclosed to any person. We use this information, in an aggregated form (that is in an anonymous form, grouped together with data from other people), to ensure that the exercises are fair for everyone and not biased towards any one group.

For those users who purchase services from us and/or administer assessments or questionnaires:

In addition to general contact information, we may collect other account-related information where appropriate, such as corporate banking account numbers (for payment purposes). We use this information to process your orders, market our products, provide technical support and customer service, and analyze your usage of our services. We may also obtain a credit report or similar financial background check on you from third party vendors, such as Dun & Bradstreet, to assist us in evaluating your request for our services. may, on occasion, directly contact you about new products, services, or special offers, but we will not pass on your details to any third parties without your express permission.
