Privacy Policy
 

This web site is operated by PeopleAnswers, Inc. (“PeopleAnswers,” “We” or “Us”), which is committed to respecting the privacy rights of guests and users of this web site (the “Site”). While visiting the Site, We may ask you (“You” or “Your”) to provide information that personally identifies You and/or the corporation You work for (“Personal Information”), for purposes of interacting with the Site.

We will take measures to ensure that the Personal Information You submit to Us remains private, and is used only for the purposes as set forth herein. This Privacy Policy describes the Personal Information We collect about You, why We collect it, how We use it, and when We share it with third parties.

This Privacy Policy has been developed with the recognition that Internet technologies are rapidly evolving, and that underlying business models are still not established. Accordingly, this Privacy Policy is subject to change. Any such changes will be posted on this page. Please see the Effective Date stated at the conclusion of this Policy.

What kind of information does PeopleAnswers collect from visitors/users of the Site?

Candidates:

We collect Personal Information that You submit to Us, which consists of certain “required information” (i.e., Your name, mailing address, and email address) and “optional information” (i.e., gender, ethnic background, age, etc.), as well as Personal Information collected from the test(s) and/or assessment(s) that You participate in at the Site. Additionally, We may also collect aggregate information regarding users of the Site, including, but not limited to, tracking Your progress through the Site.

Clients:

We collect Personal Information that You submit to Us, including but not limited to personal data (i.e., Your name, mailing address, corporate information and email address), as well as Personal Information on Your candidates through the test(s) and/or assessment(s) administered to candidates at the Site. Additionally, We may also collect aggregate information regarding users of the Site.

What are Cookies?

There is a technology called "cookies" which can be used to provide You with tailored information from a web site. A cookie is an element of data that a web site can send to Your browser, which may then be stored on Your computer system. This element of data is a piece of text, not a program. If You are a client, PeopleAnswers provides each user in Your organization with a unique user name and password that must be entered each time a user logs on. Candidates are also provided passwords. We can only access the information from a cookie sent by PeopleAnswers. We cannot access other cookies sent by other web sites or the information contained therein and do not use cookies to identify the username or password of the user. Additionally, We cannot learn Your email address or any other information about You through the use of a cookie. The only way We would learn such information is if You specifically submit that information to Us. Further, PeopleAnswers does not use cookies to store other confidential user and/or session information.

Use of Personal Information

Candidates:

Except for Your Personal Information designated as “optional,” we share Your Personal Information with the Clients for whom you work (if you are accessing the Site at the request of your company) or the Clients for whom you are applying for an employment position. If You do not wish to have Your test results or Personal Information shared with the Client, You should not provide us with Your Personal Information and are not authorized to use the Site. We do not sell, give away, or in any way make available Your Personal Information for any third party marketing purpose.

Further, in some situations you may be given an option to provide us with “optional information” after the Sign-Up page on the Site. We may share aggregate, non-personally identifiable optional information with third parties for purposes of research and long-term validation studies. The “optional information” data is not directly linked with the “required information” requested on the Sign-Up page on the Site. Such “required information” is stored and kept separate from the “optional information”.

Clients:

We may share aggregate, non-personally identifiable information with third parties. PeopleAnswers may also match aggregated user information with third party data and disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to potential advertisers, partners and other third parties, and for other lawful purposes.

This Privacy Policy only addresses the use and dissemination of information that We collect from You. To the extent that You disclose any information to third parties through other web sites on the Internet linked to the Site, different policies may apply. Since PeopleAnswers does not control the privacy policies of any third party, You are subject to the privacy customs and policies, if any, of that third party, and PeopleAnswers shall not be responsible for the use or dissemination of Your Candidates’ or employees’ Personal Information by that third party. Therefore, We encourage You to ask questions before You disclose Your Candidates’ or employees’ Personal Information to others.

Children’s Privacy

Persons under the age of 13 are not authorized to use the Site and PeopleAnswers does not specifically collect information about children. However, PeopleAnswers is concerned about the safety of children and their use of the Internet. Therefore, in accordance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, We will never knowingly request or solicit personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. In the event that We receive actual knowledge that We have collected such personal information without the requisite and verifiable parental consent, We will delete that information from our database as quickly as is practical.

Security

PeopleAnswers employs industry standard security measures at the Site, including, but not limited to, using third party and proprietary security technologies. If You would like additional details regarding our current security measures, please contact PeopleAnswers.

Third Party Hosting

PeopleAnswers contracts with one or more third parties to maintain and host the Site. Therefore, any information You submit, including Personal Information, shall be placed and stored on a computer server maintained by this third party host. Your use of the Site and any provision of Personal Information You submit to the Site constitutes Your acknowledgement that such information or content could pass through and may be stored in servers outside the control of PeopleAnswers.

Effective Date and Changes

This Privacy Policy is effective as of July 1, 2005. PeopleAnswers reserves the right to modify the terms of this Policy at any time and in our sole discretion, by posting a change notice to this page. Your continued use of the Site following our posting of a change notice will constitute binding acceptance of those changes.
