3. Information We Collect

We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so — for example, to provide our Services, to communicate with you, or to make our Services better. We collect this information from three sources: if and when you provide information to us, automatically through operating our Services, and from outside sources. Let's go over the information that we collect.

3.1. Information You Provide to Us

  • When you register for a Website account we collect your name, email address, and password. You may provide us with more information — like your job position — but we don't require that information to create a Website account.
  • When you fill in our online form to contact us, we collect your name, email address, and anything else you tell us about your request.
  • When you fill in our online form to start a skills test, we collect your full name and email address. You may provide us with more information — such as a link to your resume or your phone number — but we don't require that you provide that information to start a skills test.

Note: Financial information (e.g. credit card number, account number, etc.) are not collected by us, they go directly to the payment services provider and only when you make a purchase.

3.2. Information We Collect Automatically

When you access or use our Services, we may also automatically collect information about you. This includes:

  • Log and usage data. We may log information when you access and use the Services. This may include your IP address, date and time stamps, HTTP request type, form data, referral URLs, and the requested URL.
  • Information collected from cookies and similar technologies. We may receive information from cookies, which are pieces of data your browser stores and sends back to us when making requests, and similar technologies. We use this information to improve your experience, understand user activity, personalize content, and improve the quality of our Services. For example, we store and retrieve Session ID which allows you to stay logged into the Website. For more information please read our Cookie Policy.

3.3. Information Collected from Other Sources

When you access or use our Services, we may receive information about you from other sources. This information includes:

  • Location information. If you participate in a skills test, we may receive and process information about your location such as your country, state, and city. The information is provided by the Ipregistry service based on your IP address. For more information see the "Sub-Processor List" section below.
  • Financial transaction information. If you make a purchase on the Website, we may receive and process financial transaction information from our payment services provider, such as transaction ID, transaction date/time, transaction amount, etc. However, we NEVER collect your bank card information, such as card number, card mask, name on the card, CVV/CVC code, or card expiration date.

4. How We Use Information About You

We use information about you to:

  • Provide, maintain, and improve the Services;
  • Research and develop new services;
  • Send you test reports, invoices, technical notices, updates, security alerts, and other support and administrative messages;
  • Provide customer service.

5. How Information About You Is Shared

We don't sell or rent your Personal Data to marketers or unaffiliated third parties. We share your Personal Data in limited circumstances, as outlined below.

  • Employees and contractors may gain access to some information about you in order to help provide our Services. For example, if we need to assist you with something or if we're investigating an issue with your account.

We have service providers that provide services on our behalf, such as website hosting, data analysis, information technology and related infrastructure, email delivery, and auditing services.

  • Legal Requests may force us to disclose information about you in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental request.
  • Business Transfers: In the event that we enter into, or intend to enter into, a transaction that alters the structure of our business, such as a reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer, change of control, or other disposition of all or any portion of our business, assets or stock, we may share your Personal Data with third parties for the purpose of facilitating and completing the transaction.
  • With Your Consent: We may share and disclose information with your consent or at your direction. For example, we may share your information with third parties with whom you authorize us to do so.
  • Aggregated or De-Identified Information: We may share information that has been aggregated or reasonably de-identified, so that the information could not reasonably be used to identify you. For instance, we may publish aggregate statistics about the use of our Services.
